Wanted to send you an update on the little dog who we found on our front porch last week.
We put up signs around the neighborhood, including a lot around the places people thought they had seen her, and posted a notice on Craigslist and a couple of blogs. No one has contacted us, and we did not find her on any lost-dog listings. We haven’t seen any signs looking for her.
We took her to the vet. They said she was 1-3 years old, slightly underweight but otherwise seems healthy. She is unspayed.
She spent the first day under the bed and growling, but has warmed up to us a lot since then. She’s very sweet and non-aggressive. She is not housetrained, so we’re working on that. She also had obviously never been groomed; her hair was very long and very matted and dirty. We took her to the groomer — it was a bit tough, but she got through it and I think she feels good with her new hairdo.
At this point, pending peace negotiations with the cats, we are planning to keep her. Depending on how things go, she may become the Annie’s Ace Hardware store dog!
