Clearly, I have a lot of pets. So the last thing I needed was to take in another dog, right? So what did I do this past week? I took in a stray dog, of course.
This guy spent a few days wandering our neighborhood. He was super skittish but very hungry. I spent a few days luring him with food and slowly earned his trust. It took a lot of patience, but I finally secured him. He has been staying in a kennel in our garage, which is less than desirable. With all the pets needing homes after the Texas wildfires, fosters are in very short supply. The little man is likely part staffie, maybe mixed with ridgeback or hound. We found out yesterday that he is likely heartworm positive. We expect full results in a few days.
We have been calling him lots of names, including Clifford, Navin, Buster, Puppers and Lemont. I hope we can find him a new home soon.
What these photos don’t show – I need to take better photos – is that while he spent his first few days running around acting shy and skittish, he turned into a regular puppy dog once in our home. He is very playful and pretty much a big lovebug full of puppy energy.
P.S. If you are reading and live in the Central Texas area, please consider donating supplies to the Austin Humane Society. They are taking in all of the animals recovered from the Bastrop wildfire. You can view the list of supplies that they need. I plan to drop some items off today.
