I just saw what I assume to be a lost dog:sad:
I ran out in my slippers:eek: armed with a bag of leftover turkey,got within 2 feet of him and he took off,no collar,looked really strange,like a mix of Husky and Australian sheperd...grey,black and white,long bushy tail,quiet large,but skinny:sad:
As I could not go after him,I called HS and they are coming down to try to get him...I hope they do:fingerscr poor doggie:sad:
Anybody here missing a dog fitting that description??

That sucks Chico2 :sad: But you did your best. Either animal control will catch him or someone else will try....happen to me twice since I moved out here. Both times I drove around with a leash and collar in the car. They were too scared :( I know have a spare leash in the car just in case. Let's hope this doggy lets people help him :fingerscr

Thank's girls,but I did not do anything,other than strenghtening the neighbors suspicion I am a nutcase:D running out in my slippers with a bag of food..
Hubby thinks it might have been a Coyote:eek: but I don't think so,not with those colours.
He was tearing apart some garbagebags on the side of the road..
I was not even thinking Coyote,they don't usually come down here and it was around 4pm..
Would I have looked like a fool if I put a Coyote in my backyard:eek:
I know most of the dogs in my neighborhood,I know he was not from here...I saw the HS-van driving around slowly,hopefully they found him:fingerscr whether he was a dog or Coyote:fingerscr

Well,I saw him again last night,obviously HS did not get him,he went to the same garbage-bags for food..I again went outside,a couple of young men walked towards him,I called out"Grab him,please!!"
But I guess he was growling at them so they let him go,I am keeping an eye out tonight,saved some roast-beef from dinner,see if I can lure him in to my backyard:fingerscr
I have a feeling,he might belong to someone who just lets him out the frontdoor,otherwise,why would he stick around???

Probably because he's getting food from the same garbage. Good luck with the roast beef. :fingerscr

Rainbow,I did not see him last night and to be absolutely honest,not having much experience with dogs,I will be a little cautious if I get the chance to get close to him...
Tonight I'll leave the food out in my driveway,both times he passed by my driveway...if nothing else,he'll have a good meal,hopefully he'll be friendly:fingerscr

Because he knows your house,someone told him that , in this house, someone cares a lot for animals , he knows he'll be getting something good...like roast beef. Good luck Chico2. :fingerscr

Tomorrow is garbage day and if he comes back,there will be many bags to chose from,if he comes back I'll do all that I can to talk nicely to him lure him in to my backyard.
Unfortunately that's all I can do and give him food and water,I cannot take him in the house,but I will call HS to come and pick him up,I know he'll be safe there...
.
But I still have to see him again and catch him:fingerscr any advice??other than the roastbeef?
