    Found another dog

    Well, in the midst of all the other stuff going on, my wife and I continue to be the local magnets for lost dogs. My wife found this little gal running in traffic on Monday morning and scooped her up off the street. She looks to be a malamute, maybe about 5 or 6 months old. Unfortunately, this one can't stay. While she's really very well behaved, especially for a puppy, her presence has thrown the pack dynamic at my home for a loop. My Great Pyrenees (Rocky, who has his own thread in Foo), is not at all pleased with having the competition. Plus, I think the homeowners association would frown on five dogs at one house.

    At any rate, for the time being I've dubbed her "Tootsie."

    Only thing - could she be lost? I can't imagine how such a beautiful dog would just be left out on her own.

    Than again, with some owners out there...........

    I think she does, and I'm making efforts to find that person. Unfortunately, she had a collar but no tags. My wife found her literally about three blocks from my home, so I've already plastered that area with flyers, we're calling all the local vets today, and I've got flyers posted at a bunch of local businesses. Sadly, I've been down this road before. Once a dog is lost, if he/she has no tags, it's very difficult to find the owner.

    She's really cute!

    Still, I bet she's lost, rather than abandoned.

    I know you must be looking for the owners. Is she chipped?

    Idk how, but if the owner doesn't materialize, i think i might have to do this.

    I should probably talk to the wife (and my cats) first
    but pls keep me in the loop, if possible. (You have enough on your mind already).

    Did you ask the vet to scan for a chip? Out here we all have to have chips now.

    what a beautiful dog! I'd have a hard time not keeping her if the owner couldn't be found, too. I imagine you won't have much trouble finding her a home.

    Is there a standard for how long you look for the owner before giving it up for lost?

    I know puppy origami, I can fold her up like a swan or a rowboat, and you send her to Pgoat.

    I haven't been able to get her to the vet yet, what with the drama of the last couple days. I have my doubts about her being microchipped because (1) there wasn't even a tag, and a tag comes with the chip and (2) she's so young. But I'll be taking her to get checked out just to cover all bases.

    Just use Siu's credit card to ship, pls - you already maxed mine out.

    And I'll need instructions for unfolding.

    I'm wondering if it was a pup that was awaiting chip and got out somehow. I'd be devastated and heartbroken if this little gal was missing from my home

    Thanks for taking care of her...you are amazing for handling this, with your wife to also think about.

    She is adorable!!! I hope you find the owners but if you don't, I hope you find a good home for her. I'd take her in a heartbeat, but I'd have to clear it with teh kitteh and my mum first.

    If you go with the rowboat option, you might want to leave it folded. I mean a dog is nice, but a rowboat is nice too. All my origami is life size.

    How close are you to Nashville? Have you taken this one in to the vet to have her scanned for a chip?

    If I'm not mistaken, Malamutes and Huskies are known for killing cats. So if anyone adopts her, please be careful about that.

    also check the local Shelter and ask if anyone reported her missing.
    She sure is a cute l'il ol thang. If we didn't have a malinois on the way
    I'd be putting my name in the hat for her.

    Take her to the vet and see if they can scan her for a chip. My sister and I found a stray over the weekend, and I called the humane society. She did have a Rabies tag, but nothing else, and they didn't have a record of the tag number in their system. The humane society came out, scanned her, and found a chip, so she should make it home safe.

    Edit: oops, someone already suggested it.
