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.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
