Found a dog running loose!

I went through the McDonald's drive through on my way home this afternoon to get a Diet Coke and a sandwich. There was a little black dog wandering in and out around the cars. I managed to get it to get in my car. I brought it home and called the county. They picked it up a little while ago. It was an intact male poodle mix, either with a Lhasa !pso or a Shih Tzu. It had the curly tail with the long feathers hanging down. I think Trixie thought for a moment that Hogan had come back. They played for awhile in the backyard. I brought it in and it decided to start marking. Luckily it started with the potty pad and nothing was coming out. The county came and picked him up. The guy said his family would be probably calling them. If not, he's adorable. They would have him neutered and adopted out quickly. I can't believe he didn't have any ID on. He did have an electric fence collar, but apparently his hormones and subsequent wanderlust overpowered the electric shock.
Naughty dog.

I'm glad you were there to get the little guy. Not the first time I have heard of pets getting out of the electric fence

Someone like you rescued my dog when she was a puppy. We had bought an Id tag, but just not gotten around to putting it on. The fence was open ( not sure how) when we got home and she was gone. A loving couple saw her weaving in and out of people trying to follow someone. Like you, they scooped her up and took her to the vet to see if she had been microchipped. Of course not! Then they took her home. My DD put pictures on FB and we went around the neighborhood looking for her. Somehow this couple found us and called!
Thank you for saving this dog. I'm sure there is someone out looking!

I think you can click on this link to see him. He was adorable.
I once came home to my Dalmatians in the backyard. They had gotten through a weak spot in the fence. A person down the street got them and put them back in the yard. He left his phone number so I called him and thanked him. He said he knew I had Dalmatians and hoped they were mine. Hopefully this dog's owner will pick him up. Hoping they neuter him. That will stop the roaming.

I was looking at facebook and a photo of two lost dogs, standard poodles, was on my timeline. The post did not have any info. about the owner. I looked out the window and right across the street from my house there were the two missing dogs! My DH was able to hold them by the collars. I called the nonemergency police number and the owner drove over and took them from us. Those two bad little critters had run several miles to end up by our house. Must have been chasing a deer.

Cute dog!

There are a lot of young pit bull terriers on that link! All found recently.

Pitbulls are very common in the large city where I work and which abuts my small town. As the weather gets colder people start dumping them when they don't want them in the house. There is a huge issue with dogs that are not spayed and neutered in my county. Pitbulls are a huge status symbol and are also fought. It's ridiculous. A huge number will probably be deemed unadoptable and be euthanized. Little dogs who are unclaimed end up in foster homes and get adopted quickly.
