he is precious! he looks like a dog someone would find in a movie as a stray, very adorable and scruffy. i hope he fits in well with your crew if he doesn't find his owner (who should have a good reason for him being in the state he was in).
It will be hard, and only if I feel comfortable will I send him back to someone who may respond. I am having a hard time forgetting what I found him like a couple days ago. First I plan on asking if their missing dog was an outdoor dog or not. Then I will make them describe him to me. Someone cut his rope "collar" in a neat slice next to his neck. I can't imagine why, he NEVER barks, hasn't displayed any behavior issues.
Some people just don't know what they are missing out on.
naw.. he's a cutie :) Looks like he's found his second chance :) Hej pope, we might have disagread on stuff here before but in this case.. I know your the right girl for the job ;) He's in good hands from now on.. I know that even if you don't keep the little guy you'll find the right place for him.
If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.
What an absolute cutie he is! His fur kind of looks wirey to me so I'd guess he's mixed with something terrier maybe?! His face is precious. I would definitely keep him myself if no owner shows up. Any idea of age?
Ask a question and you're a fool for three minutes; do not ask a question and you're a fool for the rest of your life.
Actually my grandparents have a dog who looks VERY similar! Chipper is at least 14 years old, though. He was a stray that someone kicked out of a car in front of their house.
Chipper has a very similar coat, long body, the tufts on the ears, and also the long coiled tail. He's a bit fluffier though, and he's got a lot of liver spots on his belly. He's kind of neurotic, when he held his tail up the long hair on it touches his back and it drove him nuts, so my grandparents trimmed the hair on the end of his tail. They would also trim the hair aroaund his face but lately he's become uncooperative in his old age so they have him groomed (shaved). I will try to find an old picture, but I don't think I have any.
No, no word yet. I have also been looking at all the ads and flyers I can find.
I need advice on a couple things, like when would it be appropriate to take him to the vet and get him checked out/altered? or when it's okay to technically call him "ours"? It's been about a week...
I have to admit, I am nervous if the owners are found. It's been such a breeze to train him, and it breaks my heart when you go to correct him and he drops to the floor obviously afraid of getting hit...
