Pooch Alert

OK, I'm not turning this cutting edge news blog into a lost and found, but I'm trying to help a gal out. Does anybody recognize this mutt? It was found this morning off of Hlavek road out by Indian Trails in Decatur. He had a collar but no identifying information on it (which really doesn't make the collar particularly useful.) So if you think your pooch is in the backyard but you look at the photo and realize he's made a break for it, let me know in the comments. If not, that bleeding heart girl who found him will be the proud owner of your little Cujo. (And it may be a girl dog for all I know.) Edit/Update: This just in from the Finder Of The Dog -- "[I took him to the vet] hoping for one of those chips they could scan for his info. Turns out he had one of those, and 2 broken legs. They are fixing him, and calling his people."

Cute pup, looks like a Jack Russell breed. They may try calling Dr. Margaret at Pet Health Center. Tags have numbers on them, easy to track from Vets in the area.

Good luck,

Just shoot it and keep the collar.

Capt'n Kirk got more snatch 10 million light years from Earth than most guys do in a lifetime on Earth.

I have free green trees for firewood for the taking. You cut as low as you can go and you haul off the mess you leave behind.

looks like a typical chicken-killing pos mutt that someone hauled off to the country because they don't want to kill the basturd themselves. i do have a 22 cent solution to this problem.

first of all to chris (no identifying info on tag)and 11:16 what does kirk and snatch got to do with the dog? and caller 35 how can you haul off the mess you leave behind if he is already gone. Ok maybe 11:16 ment to say kirk would beam in and get some snatch off dog behind the mess of trees someone did not haul off and leave no identifying marks.

Huh, I live just south of there and if I had a dollar for every dog dumped on CR 3141 I'd be rich. They must have dumped the dog on Hlavek instead because of the road work.

I miss Babblin' Bob and Miss Vicky from KBOC. KBOC was the only station in Texas that still used 8 tracks.

Poor BG tries to do the right thing with a PSA about a found dog and get ambushed with sarcastic (albeit funny) comments.

If you cannot find the owner, Golden Wok will adopt it.

I'd kinder like the banjo and the collar, but I'd want to see them first! I ani't a buying nothing without checkin er out first.

Have you taken the dog to the vet? Some dogs have a microchip in them with the identifying information on it. The vet should be able to check for that -- may cost a pretty penny though.

People 2 People is still alive and well on BOSS 95.5 in Jacksboro with Miss Debbie. Even though it is a classic rock station they have a lot of people call in for the show from 10 - 11! People sell some STRANGE stuff on there!

How much fer the banjo?

Bean Counter said...

The pooch was in the stroller because it had two broken legs. It was taken to a vet in town and they did find a chip. It was left with the vet...hopefully they found the owner. If its owners indeed dumped the dog as some have stated above, I would like to nominate these people for a dumb ass award. Just sayin!

The dog's owner has probably been reading this blog all day, but they aren't gonna ante up. Hope some one does take care of it. Could really get on the soap box about taking care of pets. Oh well its good to hear from banjo man.

What a great gesture of kindness on the part of the finder. Hope the dog makes it to his owner safely!

Thanks, Barry, for being a humane person, as opposed to some of the fools commenting. Someone got back a beloved pet. and thanks to the woman who rescued the puppy.

I like those dogs with broken legs. They fatten up quicker since they can't do a lot of running around.

It's not funny about the dog being in a stroller with 2 broken legs, but I can say this, I've made a pretty good living at Catfish O'harley davidson's making little wheelchairs for all those frogs they cut the legs off of though!!!
