I was sitting on the porch and i saw a little dog almost get hit by a car. It got to the sidewalk safely and then ran up onto my porch. SHe went right inside. He has a collar and no tag. SHe appeared clipped and happy. I let her stay inside because its ranining. I gave her water and 2 turkey dogs and a piece of ham. She looks like a poodle/terrier mix. She is adorable! We called the local vet and they said they can't take her! What should i do? I need help!
put up signs and flyers and contact the local humane society and have them be aware that you have this dog, you would be willing to keep it and care for it until the owner shows up (if indeed you are willing). Go to neighbors and ask if they lost a dog. put it in newspapers.
Yes check to see if it's chipped. You may try a flyer at the Walmart cause they have high traffic there. Or if you have lot's of free time on Saturday, take her up there and sit by the door with a "DO you know this dog" sign. Sounds like a cute family dog...
Before you do any of that, just put the dog on a leash and walk it where it leads. A lot of dogs will automatically walk towards home. While you're at it, ring some doorbells and talk to the neighborhood kids. My kids found a lab and did just that and ran into the owner looking for the dog in just a couple of hours.
If that fails, then call the police and post fliers.
