Some ideas to help find his owners..... Call the loacl pounds/shelters ask if one has been reported missing, same with vets and even the police station! Check if he has a chip Tell all these places that you have found him and plan to hold him yourself so if someone does call for them to put them in contact with you. Also try petfinder.com there's a lost/found section as well as craiglist.org there's a lost/found section as well as a pets section for all areas of the country.
A gal on here found a mini doxie recently and got all bent out of shape when I suggested that she should try to find the owners. She had a half dozen excuses as to why she should keep the dog. Guess she had it made up in her mind to keep the animal once she got it in her possession. Sure hope none of my dogs ever get loose and are found by someone like her.
after looking at the picture i can tell you that you have found yourself a siberian husky. i used to bred huskies back in germany and they do have blue eyes some of em can have 1 blue and 1 brown. the difference between sibs and malamutes is the build malamutes have longer neck hairs and are more bigger build. google around alil bit he could be a mix of sibs and mala...but he is sure a cutie. also they make exellent family dogs but they also like to hunt..
We decided to call the dog Nanuck (sp?) like the dog from the Lost Boys. He's a pretty good dog - I dare say he is housebroken. He does pant alot, resulting in numerous trails of saliva droplets wherever he goes. He has tons of hair, I am itching to give him a bath. He does not like to share, and howled at Louie for taking a toy away from him. He doesn't really bark, doesn't destroy anything. He doesn't even really know how to play, but Louie is on top of that.
I called the local animal control, shelter, humane society, and two vet offices near where we found him - none of them has had anyone looking for a male husky. I left my info. My dad is having him scanned for chips tomorrow.
I wish I could keep this dog, but I can't. I know that my mom isn't going to take good care of him (just because she doesn't know how to) and my dad doesn't have a fenced in yard. My stepbrother loves the dog, but he doesn't even have his own place right now. In short, I don't know anyone in my immediate family who can provide a good home for him (besides me, and I already have my hands full).
I think this weekend I'll take him to the dog park and see how he behaves in that environment. Hopefully he'll do OK. I might end up loooking for a home for him, I'm going to wait 30 days - I hope that's appropriate. What a shame, I feel really bad for his real owner...
Good luck with him. He is beautiful and I love The Lost Boys/ Nanuck.
My mother the idiot, and possibly one of the most notorious pet rehomers in the North East, ditched our retired greyhound that had been given to us in the woods near a farm. Even AFTER the woman who gave her to us, specifically told her that if it didn't work out for some reason, she wanted her back.
Really sweet dog, but she suffered from separation anxiety. Shortly after coming into our home, she was left with my older teenage brother and sister while us younger kids and parents went on vacation.
The dog ate the bottom corner of basement door in a panic attack after being left alone, so badly that her teeth and paws bled.
I was so young, but I can remember being so angry with my mother for leaving her with my busy body brother and sister, and with them for not being able to pull it together and be responsible, taking one for the team as far as their social life went... and caring for a helpless dog for few days. I was told she was rehomed and that made me cry enough.
Only when I was an adult, was I told the truth. Trust me, the lie was much nicer. Greyhounds would not do well in those conditions and if she got lost in the woods....I still think about her to this day.
Point being, lots of crappy pet owners try to get rid of animals this way. Just ask the members of this board how many times people drive up and drop off in the "country". Heartless punks don't have the nerve to face anyone with their irresponsibility.
Hopefully not the case with this boy, but if it comes down to it, looks like he caught a break in that he has found a lovely new home.
