**I dropped the dog off at the vet around 9:30a.m. He is getting groomed & fixed. He'll be up for adoption this Saturday. The rescue ladies said he'll go FAST as he's the type of dog people look for.
as for my neighbor...I don't even think she realizes he's missing yet! She hasn't called, texted, or knocked to see if we have seen him. That could mean nothing but I expected her to at least question if we had seen him....
Anyways, he's safe now. Thank you ladies. And to answer the anon's question - NO. she had not chipped him or put a collar on him nor registered him**
I rescued 2 small dogs several months ago after a neighbor had been evicted and abandoned them. I placed 1 dog with my next door neighbor. She is nice and had mentioned a few times that her daughter (15) had wanted a dog.
Well, I have since realized that the dog (approx 15 lbs) is being kept outside with no shelter. Now, we do live in soCal but our city, Lancaster, has had the record breaking lows this season at like 13degrees. She also feeds it Old Roy (lol, I know it's food but yuck). This dog is one of those small long soft hair dogs that needs grooming and deserves to be pampered.
Additionally, I have rescued it twice this last month when it got out. The first time their back gate was simply wide open. I closed the gate & texted the neighbor to lock it. 2nd time was last night when my husband got home from work after 11pm. The dog was simply on our lawn, alone. So hubby brought him in & he spent the night. The dog is also covered in burrs from being outside all the time.
So, my dilemma. Do I give it back to the neighbor?? Or do I secretly stash it and find a rescue to take it? I cannot keep it for the obvious reason plus my bulldog will 100% kill it. He hates other dogs.

Yeah, call the animal shelter and let the dog freeze to death in the mean time. That's a great solution. Have they taken the dog to the vet? Have they licensed the dog with your city? Does the dog have tags on its collar?
