    DefaultFound a puppy running on the street... UPDAE WITH PICS!

    So my wife comes and wakes me up saying there is a puppy in the road down the street and its going to get hit... So there we go, off to the rescue... Ive never picked up a dog before off the side of the road. Should I let it mingle with my other dogs? It looks healthy and stuff but im paranoid it has some disease. Looks healthy and everything but the vet is closed to take him for a check u


    What kind of Dog is it? ???

    Are your dogs up to date on vaccines? If so then I don't see why they can't hang out together for a bit.

    Worms, parasites, kennel cough are all easily passed from dog to dog, plus vaccines are not always 100%. I'd seclude him till you can get a vet okay.

    keep him isolated and make sure everybody who handles him washes well afterwards - there are some neato things that puppies can have that are contagious to people too ...

    also a healthy looking dog may be about to break out with nasty infection

    and ... if you integrate him with your group its going to be awfully hard to do the legally correct thing and report him found and hope his home finds him

    cheers

    and thanks for looking out for the little guy

    His ears look Shar-Pei-ish, don't they?

    I would keep him isolated till you can get a vet OK.

    Some tips on finding his owners:

    Go door to door around your neighborhood and see if anyone knows where he belongs. Newspapers will often let you run an ad for free. Put a "Found Dog" ad on Petfinders.com. Call area vets and see if anyone is looking for a dog. Put up flyers.

    With a cute little puppy like that especially, I tend to think he's an escapee Someone might be broken-hearted right now, looking for him!

    He is cute. If you have an emergency vet around or a Humane Society that is open on Sundays like our is you can have him scanned for free to see if he has a microchip. He looks well fed so I bet someone is missing him.
