found stray!

Recommended Posts

Bobb-o

found a stray that was in pretty bad shape and was darn near hypothermic this afternoon. no collar, just wandering around outside, her back two legs were so cold she could barely walk. Does anyone know what kind of dog she is? i was thinking a border collie mixed with something else. Is there a best kind of food for a dog that may not have eaten for awhile?

Use a premium food like Eukanuba or Cannidae etc... Feed them small portions and slowly increase over a couple weeks time... Don't let it gorge itself. Several small meals over the day will be better for it than one or two big meals.

Looks like a border collie/something to me.

Take it into the vet and have it checked out and vaccinations / worming brought up to date if you are going to keep it... don't take a chance if those have been done yet or ever.

Hats off to you for taking her in during this cold snap... if it was in that bad of shape already, probably wouldn't have made it through this next one...

Good Luck!

Ken

so far she is the most well-behaved dog i have ever had. she loves people, never barks, growls, or whines. doesnt mind going in a kennel at night. she loves attention and to be pet, doesnt eat too much, in fact we just try and keep her dish with food in it and she just has a bite here and there. she wont jump on furniture unless you tell her to. all in all a great dog.

I'm guessing someone is missing her then, sounds like she stumnbled into the right yard anyway. Good for you, taking that dog in.

I agree with setter....just wondering if you are (or have) put out an effort to locate the owners? Sounds like someone could be missing a good friend.....

I do commend you for bringing in the pup....great work!!!

she had no collar, and no microchip. We had seen her running the neighborhood a couple days prior and we also have been keeping our eyes out for lost dog posters but nothing so far. She also hasnt been fixed and i was wondering how old a dog can be and still be fixed?

I think any age is better than nothing. My dad had a dog that he got fixed when she was nine after some problems with her uterus. Its harder on them, but better in the long run. I would consult with a vet.

May be worth putting in a word at the local humane society or where one would look for their lost dog........I am sure you would want the same.

Typically people who've lost a stray will put in a call to the local humane society and/or county sherif. Good idea to give them both a call if looking to cover bases.

She's almost the spitting image of our little dog. Ours actually has a white strip looking all skunk like. Does the tail curl over like a huskies? Hard to tell breed possibilities without seeing the entire dog I guess.

      Hi, I am writing on here to try to find the owner of some fishing gear that was left on East Rush Lake. I found it last Sunday morning and would like to get the gear back to the owner. If you can describe what you lost I'm willing to meet up and return your stuff back to you. I know how much it sucks losing your gear and starting over. Call me if you think it might be your gear.  Travis 651-315-9913

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them
