As some of yall well know we do animal rescue. Well, yesterday leaving the vet to have Ruby re-glued bc she licked open the top layer of stitches, we saw a orange patched over white dog running in and out of traffic. Well we stopped and I caught her w/Rubys leash while mom held Ruby in the car. She had no collar/tags or microchip (we went straight back to the vet to have her scanned and to get a weight on her). Shes about 44lbs and maybe a brittany mix(?). Anywho, we brought her back here and shes okay w/the other animals and seems to be housebroken (slept on the couch all night). We've made flyers and have posted them all over town. She wasnt really near any houses so its hard to know how far she mayve travelled. We did ask several ppl if they knew whos dog she was and they didnt know. My question is how long do we look for her owners before we try to rehome her? Shes 5-8yrs old according to the vet and when taken on walks seems to 'look' for her ppl/family/house. She also knows the sit and down commands and is good on a leash (doesnt pull). She seems to like it outside (even when its raining like it has been ALL day here lol). Any advice would be great. Shes a sweet dog and Id love for her to find her family and just hope someone didnt dump her out.
Sadly not yet. We have posted flyers everywhere. We called the shelters around here and made Found Dog reports and nothing. What worries me is her chest is bigger than her back end. Granted she seems to be weak in the back in end but shes itchy and Im hoping shes not HW +. I dont know how we'd afford to treat her.
