Sounds very familiar. Our stretch of road out in the middle of nowhere seems to be a regular dumping ground for scrotballs to dump their dogs. Two years ago two pups were found wandering aimlessly in the neighborhood. One was a black bassethound looking dog. The other was a black and tan rottweiler/austrtailian shepard shaped dog. We found a home for the basset looking dog. The other is still here. Her Name is Sally.
Run the dog by a vets office to get the dog scanned for a chip. It is possible the fella in columbia is not the owner.

Bravo! Thank you for taking the little guy in!

If you have a pet rescue organization in your area they are a great help in finding it a loving home. You can continue to foster it while they search for someone, keeping him out of the shelter.

You could pick up a little electric heater for $15 at walmart and put it next to his blankets in the garage? Preferably secured somehow so he can't knock it over (though most of those heaters have auto shutoff now...)

If you have to give him up for whatever reasons, take him to a no kill shelter. I found a cat once and actually put up signs and the owner came and got him. A month later he was out on the street again during a thunderstorm and the owner was yelling at him through his door to shut up and dumped some dry cat food into a bowl full of water. I went down and scooped him up. I was in the navy and wouldn't be around enough so I took him to the SPCA. They only put them down if they are too sick. I had to pay a $60 fee but he got adopted quickly. I suspect he got adopted so fast because his name was Little Joe Gibbs and Virginia Beach, VA is pretty much redskins territory.

You're an absolute saint for helping that dog. However, the situation may be more complex than you think. What if the owner had someone that stops over periodically to check on the dog and somehow the dog got free when he was let out to go potty, and ran. The dog sitter couldn't find it, and is now worried.

You should probably call animal control to see if someone reported it missing.

Good on you! I hope his new home is a happy one. He sure deserves better than what he had.

You know, my grandmother died this week. Here I an, a busy professional new to the area, and I was able to secure quality dogsitting in the 4 hours before I left town...and that aint a 3 week vacation that has likely been planned for a while like this joker.

Fate has chosen a better future for this little guy. You are only the messanger.

Great ears on the little fella.. sweet!

Is (s)he eating OK?
A small cup of baked chicken livers would be a nice treat... or a baked marrow bone?

We wish him to go to a good home soon.
