Returned!: Dog

Updated 4/17/2007 at 12:55PM:  Jim Carson forwarded an email to me from someone who was looking for a lost dog in the same area where we found this dog.  It turns out that it was indeed the same dog and I have just returned from taking her home.

While out walking Boots on the Bear Creek trail this afternoon we came across a stray dog:

She seems to be friendly, and from her overall condition she probably hadn’t been away from home for more than a couple of days.  However, she had an injury on her left rear leg.  Some other dog walkers loaned me a leash so I could get her back to my truck.  I took her over to the Southlake animal emergency center for an evaluation.  The vet assistant thought that she was probably about three or four years old and that she was well-nourished.  The vet said that the injury doesn’t appear to be too serious and there is no bone involvement.  In fact she thought that it might just be some sort of sore caused by allergies.  She prescribed a course of antibiotics and Benadryl (and possibly an e-collar, should she decide to pick at the sore).

She was found on the trail at the edge of the clearing to the West of the intersection of Bear Run and Bear Ridge:

She did not have a collar nor does she have a microchip.

For those who might be reading this in the Keller area, if you know who this dog belongs to, please click the “Contact” link at the top of the page and let me know who she belongs to.  My schedule is bad tomorrow, but on Wednesday I will make up some fliers and post them in the park and on the bench at the intersection of Bear Run and Bear Ridge.

I’ve decided that if no one comes forward, that I will go ahead and keep her.
