My neighbor and I came upon this dog in the alley behind Clifton St Friday morning, and we coaxed her out, gave her some food, and left her with another neighbor who was willing to take her in temporarily. The dog was wearing a collar, but there was no ID on it. She is a little girl, so probably not the puppy on Facebook, who’s described as a “he”. I don’t know if my neighbor has tried to see if she’s got a microchip, but I am wary of finding the owner…she is very skinny, so she’s either been lost for a long time, or her owner was not taking good care of her.
The puppy is in out of the cold for now, eating well, and enjoying the affection she’s being given, but my neighbor can’t keep her forever (her other dogs aren’t happy about the newcomer), and she doesn’t want to add to her trauma by leaving her in a shelter. Any assistance in finding her a temporary or permanent home would be welcome. Terry, if you’d like to take over, I can put you in touch with my neighbor.
