    I don’t mean to be a jerk, but that dog is clearly well cared for and groomed. It’s owner is definitely looking for it. You should take it to the shelter so they can find it. Or at the very least have it scanned for a chip.

    • oh man…..the pound is very hectic! perhaps a post on craigs list? as someone who had a stranger take in my dog when he was ran away from a pet sitter, i am so happy that these folks took the time to post here! thanks for looking out for our furry friends.

    • @ Neighborhood Watch – You are right! The shelter (N Central on Lacy St) can check for a chip & keep the dog for a few days in order to give the owner a chance to find it. (The shelter is the first place people look for a lost pet) If by chance it’s not claimed, then the finder or some other interested party can bail the dog out, and then he’s LEGALLY owned by whomever purchases him!

  2. The shelter will scan the pup for a microchip & it’s the quickest way to get pup back home. Best of luck!

  3. If you do take this poor lost little guy to a shelter, there are many no kill options besides LA City shelters. Many are listed here: http://www.nokillnetwork.org

    But, maybe consider posting some flyers around your neighborhood before resorting to a shelter?

    • The ‘no kill’ options on this list are not shelters, but private rescues. They will do nothing to find the owner of this dog. Try to find the owner first, then if that fails, find a home for the dog (after he’s neutered, of course.) PLEASE , if you refuse to turn it into the shelter that covers the area in which it was found, at least post photos of the dog at that shelter. Unless the owner just happens to read this blog, or see a neighborhood sign, they will not find their dog!

    A vet’s office can also scan the dog for a microchip. That way you don’t have to admit the dog into the shelter system. Instead you could put up signs at the shelter. Just a thought!

  5. We had a dog that we found scanned at our vets office. He didn’t have a chip so we kept him. He’s been with us for 12 years.
