Found Puppy Dog



How's this for a kind heart? From an email:
I was hoping you could help me. We have a dog that showed up Christmas day and she sure acts like she's somebody's dog since she's great with the kids, and very friendly. We are 1 mile north of 380 on 51. We would like to find her owner since I'm sure her family misses her. Could you please post her picture on the blog with our area? Her markings are fairly unique.

That dog is damn lucky a Korean family didn't find him.

Poster - it isn't my dog - but "thank you" for caring. I have 2 "foundlings", my son does also and my daughter - I've lost count. It's not just kids who expect someone else to clean up their mess.

1:12 Sorry it isn't your sister. Since it could be someone's, maybe you'd like to volunteer at the new county animal shelter when it opens.

I have four "lost" dogs that were never claimed, along with our other seven - (my dad's three, our two, and my son's two).

Poster, you have a beautiful sense of humor. And, a kind heart. May the owners come looking for boobage shots and see their missing dog. He's awfully cute. Merry Christmas! =)

1;23 Thanks for reminding the jokesters that this is a living being who doesn't deserve to be put out on the streets. I too have taken in many animals who have been abandoned or dumped. These animals give much more than they take.

Also Barry, thanks for the public service of trying to find a home for this sweet creature and to the person caring for it.

2:16 I think I know you. That's exactly the number of dumped dogs I have and the same number of son's dogs, our dogs and father in laws dogs. Could it be that you are my wife?

Hey, 5:25PM, let's meet at Frilly's sometime and see. If not, we might still have a lot in common.

I'm the poster who now has the lost puppy. For the folks that have adopted the foundlings, how long should we wait for a response to the ads/posters? My kids (and I =) are getting attached.... I am now thinking she might have been abused - she's very afraid of men - or maybe she was just chased away before she got to our house. Any advice?

Hey poster - 2:16PM here - if you have the heart, the love and the desire, keep him.

As for the signs: I have done many signs. Once, I got pissy within my description, like "I know you dropped this dog at our place on purpose. I want you to know that we have grown to love it. We took it to the vet, got it fixed, got it's shots, and feed it very well. We also pet it every time we go outside, even let it in when it's cold or rainy."

I didn't actually leave my address or phone number, just said to inform the convenience store if that was their dog, and they wanted it back.

No one has ever responded to our lost dog posters. Truth is, we live in a remote area that begs for unwanteds to be dropped, and evil people do that kind of stuff.

Honestly, we shot one - he ate our cats and chased our cows - it was a legal thing to do - I hated it, but there was no other choice.

Another, a blue-tick hound, was scarfed by a neighbor. I really liked that dog, but was glad it ended up somewhere else, since we have so many already.

The last one we had gifted to us was a solid black chow-looking puppy thing - we named him Bear. We let him inside for a while because he was so dadgummed cute, but when he started eating the wood trim around our doors, we decided he would be an outside dog.

Who knows the history of your doggie. I would suspect abuse or neglect, but dogs (dog is god spelled backwards, mind you) can adjust - you can teach old dogs new tricks - they will eventually realize they are in a good place and they will adjust accordingly, and potentially be your family's best friend forever.

Two I haven't mentioned yet, Butch and Danny, were dropped together - Butch is a boxer mix and Danny is a beagle-basset mix. I wouldn't take anything for those two - I love to hear them baying and barking at varmints, or howling at the moon along with Silas (a collie mix - our first unwanted).

I don't want any more abandoned dogs - the people that do that should be shot - but I will do my best to take care of those that come our way.

Best of luck to you.

I lost a dog I had for ten years in July...a shih tzu that is white/brindle colored. Just thought I would ask if anyone might have ended up with him. I feel sure he was taken but who knows where he ended up...if so, let me know, I will check back on this comment area.

Thanks for the input. I haven't heard from anyone claiming to be an owner. Today I'm going to drop off flyers at all the "neighbors" - we're on 150 acres. She's a wonderful dog. If we don't hear from anyone, I'd like to keep her.
