“Dear PoP,

This morning at around 9:30 on my bike ride to work, I saw an old, sad looking German Shepherd dog wandering around the SW corner of 11th and Florida. He looked lost; there was no owner-type person within sight. If anyone is missing him, he probably is still around there — he looked like he had arthritic hips, so I don’t think he could get far.

Also, I wanted to ask your readers what one should do in similar situations in the future. I don’t really know much about dogs, so I was uncomfortable with getting too close to check if he had tags, and taking him home with me was not an option either (since I was on my way to work & don’t have a car). I thought about calling the Humane Society, but I didn’t want to doom him to being put down before his time.”
