Default Found a Dog

I found a dog in my front yard today. She's a pretty, red, medium sized dog, with a collar and no tags. She's in a large crate in my garage right now. We've put up a craigslist ad, made fliers, and gone door-to-door. No luck so far. We're planning on seeing if she's chipped tomorrow.

She knows sit, down, come, and how to walk on a leash. She takes treats very gently, and is pretty clean and in shape. She doesn't seem super old, and she's not a baby. I doubt she's from far away, because when I went out to get her, I took some kibble. She turned that down, but snarfed the pork she was offered.

Anyone have any other advice for finding her family that we haven't tried yet?

I need her out of my garage fast--my boyfriend thinks she's great.

Call local vets and shelters and tell them you have the dog!

That is a great idea! Thank you.

The last time this happened, it turned out the dogs lived in the house behind us, so it was a lot easier.

Put an ad up on CL.
Call the non-emergency police line.

We've got an ad up on CL already. I did that within a minute of getting her into the garage, lol, while my boyfriend went door-to-door.

I'll call the non-emergency number in the morning. It's too late tonight.

Definitely tell the vets and animal control you've got her!

A dog showed up in the evening at a friend's house once while we were hanging out, but her landlord was coming by in the morning and they had a strict NO DOGS policy so I took her home. She was in good shape.. young, not skinny, well socialized, etc. I called the county animal control in the morning and gave them her description. Not twenty minutes later, I got a phone call from her owners! When I told them where she was found, they were SHOCKED - she was over 15 miles from home and had only been missing since the morning before (about 10 hours or so, around the time she made it to my friend's house).

Can I recommend not including a description of her in your ad? You can ask that people call to identify her just for her own safety and to make sure it really is her owners who are claiming her

Also ask your mail carrier and other delivery people if they recognize her. Also, ask anybody who walks the neighborhood regularly.

I second that, including the color of her collar.

Yes, definitely let them describe her. If the owners aren't found, do you think she'll become a member of your family? LOL. She sounds like a nice dog. I hope everything works out for her. And you!lol.
