Found a doggie (Updated, looking for Harvey's new home)
A little black and white dog followed my DS home from school. He said he tried to shoo him away but he just wouldn't listen. He looks like a shitzu and is extremely friendly and loving so I'm sure he came from a good home. He had a collar but no tags. We gave him a bath and are going to bring him to the vet tomorrow to see if he's got a chip. I really hope he does cus someone must be heartbroken right now. The baby jumped right into my lap after the bath. Nothing like a wet dog in your lap My cats are going absolutely nuts of course, but to tell you the truth I think he's more afraid of them than they are of him.

So, if he isn't chipped and nobody claims him, are you going to keep him....and name him "Peanut"? (You know, "found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut just now, just now I found a peanut found a peanut just now".....I think we used to drive my mom crazy singing that stupid song over and over and over when we were kids. )

Aaaaw, he sounds like a sweetie! We have a dog now too that we got in a similar manner-followed my sons home, and plopped down and refused to move

Turns out he wandered over from next door-we live in the country on almost 5 acres, so we didn't realize he was a puppy from the neighbors' bunch. Luckily, they didn't mind and now we have a great big love-bug of a dog.

miccisue, you cracked me up~ I used to LOVE to sing that silly song!!

Could you phone your local dog shelter and see if anyone has reported him missing

Thanks for taking him to the vet to check, Evona.
My doggie ran away on the first, and since she is a pure bred, (and a very expensive sorta 'strand' of this breed...) and we are thinking someone picked her up and decided just to keep her. :(
I wish she had been a mutt.

The vet doesn't open for a few hours, but if he's not chipped we will put up fliers and call the local shelter. I don't want to put a picture of him on the fliers because I don't want someone saying its their dog when its not really. I'm just going to give a basic description and ask them to call me and describe him in more detail. For instance, he has one white leg and one black leg in front and the tip of his tail is white. I can say I found a black and white shitzu, but only the owner would know the particular pattern of coloration Knowing a name and having him come to it would help too.

He certainly is a cutie. I am going to give my best effort to finding the owner because he is so sweet I just can't imagine someone not missing him terribly right now. If I absolutely can't I might keep him though and maybe I WILL call him peanut

That is so sad! I bet you miss her. Keep trying. I hope she turns up.

I just got back from the vet and they didn't find a chip. They gave me a small bag of dog food since all I have at home is cat food. I'll make up some fliers now and copy them at work on Monday. I guess this is home for him for the weekend though. Unless someone sees him and recognizes him while we walk him.

Did you look in your paper to see if it was listed in the lost dogs?
