    So my gf goes down to the pool today and there's this random dog running loose down there. She's like, bring him some water, etc... and then the back story starts to build.

    Someone found this dog in the parking garage last night with no collar, just kind of trapped inside the automatic gates. So this girl kept him overnight and then placed him in the pool area of the complex this morning, a fenced in area. We ran in to him and as of now he's snoozing on the couch. I went out and bought him a collar, leash, food, treats, etc.

    Much better than being outside. It was kind of hot out today.

    Such a great dog too... tomorrow I'll take him to the vet to see if he has one of those chip GPS tags. It's an incredibly well behaved dog. Social, leash trained, house trained, etc. I can't imagine how anyone could will fully abandon him.


    Anyway, he's got a good home for the night and I'll do my best with "found dog" flyers and taking to the vet to scan for a chip tomorrow... but really I hope his owners never surface.

    Dog is legit... burnt orange and white live Bevo. :)

    cool story bro...but i actually mean that. very cool story. if you saved an abandoned dog, that's fucking awesome. if you found some family's lost beloved dog, that's fucking awesome. nicely done.

    Before I secured my fence and kept a better eye on my dog when the front door was left open.............she was returned to me twice, by neighbors.

    Who fed her snacks and treats, and she'd likely love to go back to, if she ever escapes again!!!

    Both times I felt grateful that they saw and grabbed her, and took care of her.

    Good on you.

    I can't imagine anyone purposefully abandoning a pooch like this... its Sunday so I couldn't take him to a vet to find the chip, if he has one.

    I'll go that route tomorrow, but in the mean time I'm really enjoying keeping a roof over his head, food, treats, etc.

    The pooch has had a much better day than being abandoned by a pool.

    Tomorrow I'll abandon myself and see if I get to sleep on a couch and fed copious amounts of Milkbones.

    Its not our first rodeo... bought the dog some bacon treats etc... he's at the doggy 4 Seasons tonight.

    I'd be happy to keep him, but I will make the best effort to find his owners.

    He walked in to a good house, all burnt orange and shit. Dog is legit... and now its late and he's stolen my space in the bed... there might need to be some more alpha role training if he sticks around.

    Sounds like you're doing the right thing by trying to track down his owners, should they exist.
    But if you're already bonding and he's awesome I hope you don't. :)

    What kind of dog is it?

    The best pet I have ever had in my life was an accident. True story.

    I've got a lot of Milkbones, and a comfy couch.

    You'll have to fight my dog for that position.
