Hey guys, found a lost pupper hanging around outside and I was wondering if he's some kind of special breed like a mix of something or maybe he's just a mutt, I don't know. He's well trained and isn't starving so we'll be trying to find his owners. Unfortunately he doesn't have any tags what so ever and the only people around this part of town are niggers and white trash. What's the normal protocol on this situation? Is there any way I could make a makeshift leash (that won't strangle a dog if he runs off)? I have only ever gotten to take care of cats since we don't really have much room for any kind of decent sized dog. What do you guys suggest?
Pic related it's the pupper.
You can get a leash for less than five USD that a pup like that could never break. Tack on another five for a collar and you can safely transport the pup while you search for the owner. Keep in mind that people are fucking liars though and if the person(s) don't seem like they will care for the pup you should just keep it. Dogs like that make good outside dogs if you fence them in and are pretty low-maintenance. Either way, best of luck.
Thanks, I appreciate the information. This dog is too sweet to be left so to someone who might hurt it. I figured if they were his owners they'd have some proof of ownership, whether it be a leash, tags, papers, ect.

I doubt it. Mutts don't typically have papers, and anyone who has or had a dog can easily have tags or a leash lying around. It's very difficult to prove ownership of a dog or cat when they're so common and most of them aren't chipped.
You have no idea how much I want to keep him, he behaves so well. He's a good boy, just sitting next to me and snoozing on some sheets I bundled up for him. Alas, I don't have the room for a pupper and this little guy needs a nice yard to explore.
I suppose that's true enough, but I'd at least like to ask for something like that, rather than give it away to the first person who seems like they're okay.
Ask around "ay anyone lose a dog" and have them describe him to you, it's better to be suspicious to his true owner and look like an asshole than give him to some dude looking for a dog
More pictures of the pup. I had to clean the house a bit and he only whined a little when I was away. Surprised me. I just don't want him fighting with my floofs.
I checked him out before I gave him a bath, he was pretty damn smelly. Didn't have one, not surprising either, I live in a pretty poor town, people hardly waste money on getting their animals shots let alone chips.
He reacted really well to the water too and didn't freak out. Such a good pup.
Yup he's a good boy. He's actually playing nice with the fluffs now.
If you have to keep him for long, get him vaccinated. I just lost a start mutt from parvovrius.
>Anyone have tips for walking a dog?
Have you never walked a dog before bro? Just put the collar on tight enough to where he can't slip out but not so tight that it is flat against his skin (you should be able to fit a pencil between his skin and the collar), snap the leash on, and head outside. He'll probably tug at it at first but it's fine, just don't let go of the leash or let him do obviously stupid shit like walk on broken glass or something.
Don't jerk the leash violently or swing the dog in the air like a flail.
I'm very sorry for your loss. If I keep him more than a week, I'll probably get him vaccinated.
Good thing you stopped me, I was just about to do the latter. But, nah, I'd have a fit if I saw someone doing that.
No, I've never walked a pup before. Any dogs I've been around have always had enough room to roam and explore without getting hurt and didn't need any supervision. But, thanks, I was worried about him tugging on it and hurting himself, but we went for a walk and it wasn't too bad.
He's definitely house trained.
>tugging on it and hurting himself
The only reason a dog will ever tug a leash so hard that it hurts him is if he is scared for his life and trying to run away, they won't just casually choke themselves or snap their own necks. Hope he enjoyed the walk.
