omg there is a huge mastiff staring at me through the screen door!!! UPDATE edit UPDATE final update

Posted by   + Show Post

i dont know where he came from or who he belongs to, he has town tags but i have never seen him before.

he was at the school and followed dh, the boys and our dog home from the park this afternoon. its 11pm and he is still here.

he is very nice boy! even nice to our dog and cat lol he followed my dog into the house and i told him no no you dont live here, and pointed at the door and he went back outside lol

i wanna keep him! now he is just staring through our screen door like " i want to come in too!"

and yes, our screen door is filthy. it is melting and muddy and my dog scatches on the door to be let in.

he is so big! 2x the size of my dog! i wanna keep him! lol

WEll dh went to bed and i let him in. he is sooo big! omg. lol. he is very snoopy and was whining because baby was crying lol

you guys, i am not going to "just keep him" (wish i could, he so sweet) his town tag has a 4 digit # on it, its 730am, town hall opens at 9. they will know whos he is.

we just had a sleep over. i know he must have a home. im not lucky enough for him to be homeless, trust me lol

His name is odin, and he lives in the same rental that trashy family used to live in. ds says he is always at the school. i will swing by on my way to the clinic and see if the owner is home, the town didnt have a phone number on file.

i dont like his owner.  i pull up and right away see a shep and shep pup running around in the street, which is right next to the school. my dog had followed us over, (he always follows me around town) and the adult shep was agressive with him.(my dog is not at all aggressive)

odin looked happy to see his dog friends, but pretty much ignored his owner, who also ignored him. i told her what had happened and she was like "oh i wondered where he was, thanks" 

i said if they ever wanted to rehome him we would love to have him because he wassuch a good boy, she gave me a dirty look so w/e, we left.

but i did peek inside her house. it was a total mess. like gross.trashy people.

ugh i should have just kept him. if he shows up again, i will just not take him home and let him decide where he wants to live, he's an adult.

no one stays in that rental long, i could hide him until they move........

**obviously, i am pouting. a nice dog like that deserves a nice home. she didnt even seem happy to see him**

What are the laws where you live regarding roaming animals? Where I live, all pets, including cats, are supposed to be licensed and leashed. Roaming animals are captured by the humane society (though there are lots of active pet finder groups on Facebook, so when a roaming animal is spotted, it is usually brought inside, and the owner sought via Facebook). If an animal is captured on multiple occasions, the owners are often required to surrender the animal, as they are not meeting their obligation to keep the animals from roaming.

If Odin happens to keep roaming, you might want to call a tip in to animal control, while of course keeping an eye on his status to make sure you are the one with first dibs to adopt.

I honestly would be calling the local police, maybe comment how her dogs are on the loose.  Not sure what your state leash law is,but here in MI if our dog is off our property without a leash, it is a big NONO and big Fine.  If she has more than just him running wherever he wants, that is big liability (especially if the one is aggressive), not to mention I would be so worried the Sweet Baby would get hit by a car:-(

I would honestly go steal him. Sounds like the owner wouldnt care anyways.

Holy hell...Yes!  That is what I would do.  OP, I wish I lived near you...I would help you go and get him.  There was this dog that lived across the street from us, and the owner used to beat him.  One day my dad just took him in the car and drove him to his friend's house that wanted a dog.  Sometimes you just have to do "justice" on the side, kwim?

AWW!!! I'm SO, SO, SO SORRY OP!!!  :(  I wish you would have known before-hand the NASTY conditions of his 'home' before you took him back there!!! I bet he looked inside your home, and was like WOW!! This place is nice, neat and clean!! I wanna stay HERE!!!! :(  Poor guy!!!! Hopefully, he will come back to your house again, and this time, you can keep him!!! At least, that is what "I" would do!!!

Lol @he's an adult. I agree if he comes back get him chipped and keep him.

Honestly, report them and their living conditions, they have to check on it, if they take the dogs, you can get first dibs to adopt.
