    I dont get over here much I stay in 2nd gen and B/S/T

    But I found a dog and didn't think it would fit in at 2nd gen lol

    I was on my way to rite aid and found this beautiful dog talked to my dad and he to seen the dog.

    So I picked him up on the way back.

    He is very nice, he was starving!!! and thirsty!

    I have been wanting a dog and this looks like my chance he gets along with our cat.

    I live with my parents so they have the final say.

    I called the animal control place even though I didnt want to but if I had this dog and someone stole him I would be upset!!!!

    So talked to them they said no one had called in, I asked if I needed to call back they said eh. I will call back in 3-5 days see if anyone has called in for him.

    No tags, on him.


    Here are some pics!!! Im already falling in love with him he follows me everywhere!

    :D:D:D Feel like a kid in a candy store, o and HE LOVES THE TRUCK lol he put his head out the window when we were coming back and its like 30 degrees out!

    Also should I feel bad if I do keep him? He was very hungry and thirsty, he also looks a little thin.

    :confused: or :D

    i dont think you should feel bad, especially if nobody calls about him. if there are no flyers in your town or nobody calls within a few days, they obviously dont care, so its nice that he can go to a good home with somebody who cares!

    Take a pic, post them up telling people you found him.

    Since he's nice, he probably had a decent home, and maybe he's just been missing so long he's malnourished. His owners might want him back, but just couldn't locate him.

    If nobody answers after about a week or so, free dog!

    Yeah he does seem kinda scared around doors? Or when fast movement I sneezed and I thought he was going to pee.

    No clue about the doors he just doesnt like them for some reason he is sleeping now must be tired.

    Yeah I have lost a dog once and I had posters up on every corner!!! I had 10-20 of my friends looking for him I found him in 32 hours lol.

    I was so upset I thought for sure someone kept him I even gave the guy a reward (didnt say I was going to on posters) But I was so happy I gave him 50$!

    He made 14 miles and some change away. I think he was chasing squirrels.

    keep him, its obvious you care about the dog more than whoever he belonged to. Don't worry about his weight, he probably hasn't eaten for a week. You could take him to the vet to have him checked out. He looks great though.

    Maybe you stink a little, alot...?

    Here's hoping it works out they way it's supposed to. Good luck to you and to the pooch. Make sure you take him/her/it to the park. Dogs can be magnets for the ladies.

    such a beautiful dog! don't feel bad at all. if you hadn't picked him up chances are he would have had an unfriendly meeting with the front end of a car or would have starved to death.

    from what you said about the dog's behavior around sudden movement I would think that maybe his previous owner might have been abusive to the dog. But that's just my opinion.

    You sound like you are gonna be a good friend to the lost dog. Well not lost anymore. :)

    Glad you're taking care of him, but You should take him to the SPCA or animal control and have him scanned for a microchip before you decide to keep him.

    I would be doing the exact same thing, bro. Sounds like he found him a good home. There is no such thing as bad dogs, just bad owners. Good lookin pooch too. Should be a chick magnet.

    I would post flyers in the neighborhood and see if someone calls. I would NOT post pics of him. If someone calls, make them describe him to make sure it really is their dog. If no one calls, or they don't describe the right dog, keep him!!! Have a name picked out yet?

    Why would you feel bad? He is happy and now has a place to stay where there is food and water and with a person who cares for him. Feel good dude, you might have saved his life.

    And yeah^^ what he said don't post pics make them describe the dog, b/c they might just want a free dog.
