Found Dog in Houston

I realize the likelihood of this being successful is pretty much zero, but it is worth a shot.


Yesterday morning on the way to court, I rescued this male dog off the exit ramp from I-10 east on McKee leading into Downtown.  He was running up the ramp with his leash on and I was able to get him into my car.

He obviously has an owner of some sort.  He's very friendly but not hyper.

I've already listed him on Petharbor.com.  Any other tips on finding his owner or an adopter would be greatly appreciated.  E-mail me at murray@murraynewman.com

Find the nearest new townhomes and put signs up, that looks like a yuppie's dog. Also Craigs List. Take him to a vet and get him scanned for a chip.

You're a good dude.

If you have not done so yet, take him to a vet to see if he has a microchip. Good luck on finding his owner.

Maybe it was this poor womans dog:

Is that Rage?

Poor little thing looks like he could use a few good meals. You are a good dude.

A leash but no tags?

A Harris County Lawyer said...

No tags. There is a homeless camp not far from where I found him. I've asked around there but nobody claimed him.

There are some lofts south of there near the Metro Bus barn. Bet it's one of their dogs. That doesn't look like a homeless person's dog.

You're a good man, Charlie Brown....errrrr, Murray.

If you don't get a lead he looks like a schnauzer mix...call the Miniature Schnauzer Rescue Group of Houston and they'll make sure he gets fostered/hopefully adopted. They don't put dogs down.

Don't let the pathetic innocent appearance fool you, Murray. This hybred has a 99.9999999998% probability of being genetically Bi-Polar. During the manic episodes it will become highly aggressive. The animal was most likely abandoned after ripping the face off of a caregiver.
Exercise extreme caution when handling. Rage would be a perfect adoptive fit for this miscreant.

Given the fact that he weighs about seven pounds, I will try to defend myself. I don't see any dachshund in him. He appears to have the body of a miniature schnauzer and the coloring of a Yorkshire terrier.

In the meantime, I have named him Fickman, and we seem to get along okay for the time being.

You can tell it's not me, because his pecker isn't dragging the ground.

Rage

A Harris County Lawyer said...

Seriously people,

We've turned an effort to find a dog a home into a conversation about Rage's genitalia.

And we wonder why people hate lawyers.

Just Sayin' said...

Rage continues to confuse being a big dick with having one.
The boy reminds me of the old saying we have in Texas, "all hat and no cattle".

Damm good come Rage!

Rage,

Ron White is going to put you on the cover of his next album,"The Sequel: You Can't Fix Stupid Even with Stem Cell Therapy".

Just sayin', they aren't mutually exclusive.

Also, it just so happens that I own cattle, but no hats.

Rage @9:24,
But in your case everyone on this blog knows they are mutually exclusive......."I'm a doctor, lawyer, astronaut and I own this bar" bullshit doesn't make your penis any bigger than pretending to be a 3rd generation highly decorated VMI graduate.

As for owning cattle; your experience is limited to plastic wrapped select grade beef at Krogers......and we all know that as well.

I never told y'all I was an astronaut. How'd you find out?

Rage,
Taking hits of acid didn't make you an astronaut any more than watching Gomer Pyle made you a decorated army vet.
Bailiff, take the pretender back from whence he came!

Murray,
On a more serious note, are you going to be hosting any Fighting Aggie tailgates this Fall? Looks like your boys might just get the elusive NCAA National Championship honors this year.......you jarheads deserve it! Gig "em

Odd how hatred for Rage derails everyone in here.

Just Sayin' said...

Anon 10:56,

Rage presents more of an annoyance than hatred. He's like a piss ant in a urinal....he crawls around the drain begging to be pissed on and it's hard to resist.

Just Sayin' sure devotes a lot of time and anger to a "mere annoyance."

Everything is relative....I would expect that,unless you are Pat Lykos commenting anonymously, you spend more time on personal dental hygene after lunch than I spend on Rage.

What about the dam dog?

A Harris County Lawyer said...

The dog (currently going by Buddy Holly) is still with me and he has a hot date to be neutered next Monday.

If you are going to foster him, Petsmart has an adoption program.

He looks more like a Scruffy Murphy, to me.

I'd say it was destiny. You have a new dog.
