I need suggestions on getting my hands on a dog that has come up at my house. He acts like he has never had a human touch him. He will eat with my other dogs but he will back out of the way if you come within feet of him. Anybody have any suggestion? It has been 3 months.
Do you have other dogs, or is he with a pack of stray dogs? Keep your dogs inside, and preferably quiet, so they don't startle him. Can you get him to a confined area? Fenced in Yard or Garage? You DON'T want it to be a small area though, that's dangerous. Take a few hot dogs with you and sit on the ground, offer the dog the food, throw a small piece at him and the rest lay at your feet, or in your hand. Do NOT attempt to pet the dog just yet.
It is obvious something terrible happened to him, and it may take a while for him to trust you. Once the dog eats willingly out of your hand several times you can get up and walk away from him, does he panic and bolt? or does he follow you? If he follows you are ready to try to pet him.
Anyone who can take over a whole plane with tweezers... might just deserve that plane.
