The project: Continue to provide safe haven for rescued dog, and finally deliver to local shelter.
Minutes to take him out front again to tie to the tree, water and feed. About 30 minutes to drive to shelter and turn him over. About 10 minutes to put away kennel, food and clean up. 45 minutes to make poster and post it around the neighborhood in case owner looked here.
As much as we'd like to keep him, the dog was not ours, nor do we have a lifestyle that supports a dog. (We travel too much to places dogs aren't allowed.) We were headed out of town, so we'd kept him as long as we could.
I posted pictures of the dog around our neighborhood with information about where the owner could find him. The shelter employee informed me that if the dog were not picked up by owner by Saturday, he'd be available for adoption, and that he wouldn't last 'til Monday since he was quite adoptable.
I like to think we kept this dog from being injured. We certainly kept him out of plenty of female dogs' backyards, so perhaps we prevented some future unwanted puppies.
