A dog showed up at our house today and has been sticking around all day. We also have 3 cats, 2 kittens and an older cat. Well our older cat has been in a tree ever since the dog showed up. Our kittens however are not scared. The dog was fine with them for awhile. Now the dog keeps trying and sometimes succeeding in picking them up. How can we get the dog to stop? We are planning on keeping her if no one claims her.

Above advice is good. You can also try to redirect him. Give him a Kong to play with or other toys to occupy him.

Thanks everyone for the advice. Unfortunately it is no longer needed. DH and DD went for a walk last night and had the dog with them. Well a neighbor from down the road saw them and said "There's my dog." :( We enjoyed having here around. She is a chocolate lab. She stuck around our house all day, would go over to the neighbors and jump in their little pond and them come back. She played fetch, but wasn't trained other than that.
