well......guess what happened on the way to my apt this morning? i found a dog! lemme explain...
so i'm driving home and i see this little black thing running in a zig-zag pattern in the middle of the street. i thought for a sec it was a cat...but cats don't do that. it's a dog. i pull over, after following it for a little bit, and call it. it comes running over and i eventually get him (it's a boy) in my lap. he seems kinda malnourished and has no id, not even a collar!
so i call the ER vet (only ones open) and ask to bring him in to see if he's chipped. i bring him and he isn't chipped. i find out info on him (guessed from vet):
he's about 4 mo.
he's a miniture pinscher (sp?)
seems healthy, just a little malnourished
his tail is docked, so we know he was owned, etc. so i ask what i should do because: i don't really want to give him back to the owner...how great are they if he has NO id? i mean, i understand that dogs escape. there are accidents. but this dog needed id! a collar! something! she and my vet (over the phone) said that i should just hang on to him and ck in every day to see if someone is missing a dog, but to not advertise for him to be found. i fought with this decision for a while...but i think that i could do better for him then these people could. what do you guys think?
they also said that since he is probably in good health that i can bring him home, but to keep him isolated. i'll bring him for his shots monday. but they said he looks good!
sooooooo.............basically...i think i just got a 3rd dog.
i should've known this would happen! haha! i'll keep you updated.
i'm going to try and attach a pic i took with my camera phone in a reply. lemme know what you think!!
