Looks like it's going to get under 30° tonight, so we did buy a little space heater....not much help but I guess it's better than sleeping outside

You should probably call animal control to see if someone reported it missing.
My wife talked to 4 neighbors when trying to find the owner that each said they see the dog running around all the time.....I checked our local newspaper and craigslist with no hits, but I will call the Humane Society and Animal Control tomorrow just to be certain.

Glad to see you're doing your best to help the dog.

We recently "adopted" a stray boxer mix puppy (
The last dog we adopted was always a bit afraid of people indicating he was abused in his past life. It's always sad to see abused dogs.

That pup doesn't look very dachshundish. Looks more like a manchester terrier. And yes, they are known to have a terminal case of the shivers.

He's really working those sad puppy dog eyes ain't he?

I've been through this many times before. In my area we have lots of idiots that get dogs that they think are "tough" Pit bulls, Rottweilers, Chows, and tons of Chihuahuas. Problem is that I live in an old neighborhood and the idiots don't keep their fences up and the dogs get out. Problem is that I'm in the middle of the city. Loose dogs can get hit, they can get hurt or scared and bite, none of which is good, so I always try to catch the dogs.


From what I've learned over time, you should get the dog checked for a chip, put up photos of the dog for a single week, if nobody actually comes to claim the dog, it gets a new home.

Because of my area, and the types of people I have to deal with, I always go by this list:

1. I determine the dog's aggression.

2. I determine a distinguishing mark on the dog, something that makes it easily identifiable. I then take pictures of the marking for my reference.

3. I take the dog to my vet to get it scanned for the chip. If there is a chip, then I get the address and take the dog back to it's owners and take a look at the place to see how it got out. Usually a broken fence board.

4. If there is no chip and no ID, and there usually isn't, I take one good photo of the dog that does not include the distinguishing mark, and print up flyers. They stay up for one week.

5. Anyone that calls for the dog is asked about the distinguishing mark. If they can't tell me what it is, it's not their dog.

6. After the week is up, I place the dog in my local PALS rescue program. Usually takes a couple weeks, but they always get a new home. One really nice thing about our local PALS is that there is no group cost. It's all volunteers who love animals working on the lists, it's all by phone or email, and whoever puts the animal into the program keeps it until a new home is found.

From the pics, the pooch looks a lot like a miniature pinscher, maybe a cross. Miniature Pinscher - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I think it's definitely a mix....I'm horrible at identifying dog breeds. I think it does have some daschund in it though because of the short stubby legs. The ears are something else, though.....

I was thinking about the legalities also, however the easiest thing is to play dumb and say you put food out for it, then it ran off.

Awesome of you though, its a very humane thing to do and nice to see people in the world care.
