My wife and I found a dog that was wandering Hunt Highway between Lindsay and Val Vista. He was pretty scared and shy and after chasing him for about .5 mi we eventually caught up with him at the ranch on Val Vista and Hunt Highway. The folks at the ranch said that they have been seeing him for the past few days but weren’t able to catch him. After spending almost 30 minutes coaxing him with treats, I was finally able to get him into the car. My wife works for a no-kill shelter and we were hoping to get him in there but they can’t take him because they are full. My wife is looking for other shelters in the area, but we’re not sure what we can do.
He’s a normal-sized dog and is probably at most a year old. He’s very much a puppy and a very sweet boy. He was scared at first but then warmed up to us very quickly. He’s very friendly and seems to be at most a year old, but quite possibly younger (maybe 9-10 months) because his adult teeth are just coming out.
He’s either a bulldog/dane mix or a pit/dane mix. He hasn’t displayed any signs of aggression and seems to be in good health. Not sure how he is around kids.
He didn’t have a collar on and we’re taking him in today to see if he is chipped. If this is your dog, please let us know!
We would love to adopt him, but we already have two dogs of our own and can’t afford to keep another one. If anyone is interested in a good family dog, please let us know!
Or, if you know a no-kill shelter or a rescue that has room and can take him, please let me know also!
Note: This is Ham, my sister’s tri-color Beagle. He recently had an allergy to his collar and so my sister put the dog cone on him so that he wouldn’t scratch at his neck all the time. She also took pictures. This particular one made me laugh and so I made a poster out of it.
