This Intruder Chews

puppy
Well, well, well, look at the intruder that wandered into our pen.  We weren't going to post today but since we'll be posting some of these photos on facebook, we decided we'd do a quick post.

This little guy appears to be about 6 - 8 weeks old.  Likely a beagle or daschund mix. No, he isn't staying.  At least not longer than the weekend.  And, no, Jan did not bring him home.  Nor did he follow us home.

Jan was drinking coffee and talking long distance to a friend this morning when she saw a car pull over to our side of the road and slow down.  It stopped and a man got out carrying a puppy.  He asked if she recognized it.  Said he'd found it in the road in front of Walgreens and was looking for the owner.  When Jan said no, he looked disappointed, pointed across the street and said, "The lady over there told me there's a lady over here who would take it in and find the owner.  Isn't that you?"

You know what Jan did, don't you?  She laughed, said, "Here, give him to me," and brought him into our home.  Can you believe that.  She sat down to finish her phone conversation and we dogs all rushed over to check him out.  So the little guy did his one good deed of the day.  He got even with Jan for us.  He peed all over her leg.

Other than that he's been a little pest.  He wants to play with us, not with toys.  We have to keep telling him we're older, it's hot and humid, and while he's staying here, he has to respect our boundaries. He doesn't bother the cats, though.

Not that he pays attention.  He's already taken over our pen.  And he's wearing Merci's brand new never-worm collar and using one of our leashes.  Jan walked him around the neighborhood and asked people if they have seen him before but no one has - so far.  She's going to keep trying.

Jan is petsitting for a neighbor this weekend, so she needs to be able to leave us all alone for short periods while protecting furniture and appliances from little chewpup. (He even chewed on the bathroom sink turn off valve.) The nice lady, Kay, from the Humane Society loaned us a crate for the weekend.  This should be interesting.

We know most of our readers don't live in our area, but we just really want to do whatever we can to find his owner ASAP before the animal shelter opens on Monday.  At least, we sure hope he has an owner and wasn't dumped. 

Update:  Jan named him Luke.

  2. Oooh, boy, never a dull moment at your home! We hope his home is found too. Could he be microchipped? A vet or a shelter could scan for that, we presume. Fingers crossed for a good outcome, whatever that is, for this little guy!

  8. We hope you can find the puppy's home. It would be a shame for him to have to go to the shelter. Is it possible he is microchipped

  12. Can you find if he has a microchip? If he was dumped, I bet the owner doesn't want him back. Awful.

  18. Maybe his name should be Chewy! He is a cutie, and look how big his feet are. He's a handful and Jan was so nice and bighearted to help the little guy out. Good luck finding his family, we hope it works out.
