Good (active) home needed

Postby Massholeo » Thu Sep 27, 2012 8:42 am

Found this fellow in my office parking lot. No chip, no tags, drove around asking folks in the residential areas near here with no luck (few and far between, we're in a pretty industrial area). Dog was pretty filthy and had a slight limp. Brought him home, cleaned him up, fed, water, etc. Would love to keep him but have three already and I'll be homeless as well as him if I tried! Dog is extremely athletic and nimble, but is young and seems to be still learning. Pretty good on a leash, but looses focus with voice commands. I'd love to keep him, but my landlord would have my rear.
Approx 45 lbs, looks to be a shepard / ab / collie mix (??). Extremely sweet, got along great with my dogs. I figure folks on here are pretty active and as we've seen there are some animal lovers. If anyone is interested in this guy give me a call at 720 394 3973 or shoot a PM over. Obviously I'll try to locate the original owner, but without a chip and no tags (but a collar), nothing on CL and no response to my postings there it's pretty difficult.

You might want to try contacting local shelters, too. The owner may have made them aware of the fact that his/her dog was missing.

Shelters have been called, most indicated they do not keep a running list and tell folks to utilize craigslist and pet harbor, which I've done. Looks like he'll be set though, I've got a few interested parties. Sorry to take up space on here about (another!) dog, but couldn't just ship him off to a shelter, too good of a dog for the unknown.

Where about did you find him?
There is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

Thanks...a friend lost a dog with an almost scary resemblance, but in Colorado Springs on Monday.

It seems possible that the dog could have made it 70 miles in three days. Unlikely, but possible. Might be worth checking with your friend in the Springs.

Has the dog been seen by a vet yet? If so, they should have scanned for a microchip. Probably a good idea to just make sure there's not some kind of owner connected to him. A local shelter could scan them for you as well.
Such things for example as the grasp of a child's hand in your own, the flavor of an apple, the embrace of a friend or lover...sunlight on rock and leaves, the feel of music, the bark of a tree, the abrasion of granite and sand, the plunge of clear water into a pool, the face of the wind--- what else is there? What else do we need?

Can he climb the Hourglass, or Quandary's W Ridge? If not, I'm not interested. ;)
