This sweet male, not neutered Arroyo Mutt or Cattle Dog let himself be captured today down in the arroyo. I was looking for him after I heard of him sighted again, despite Animal Control's promise to come out for him early in the morning. I wandered around the dog park for about 1 1/2 hours before we came upon him down in the arroyo. He was seeking out the company of other dogs, he is so social.
I offered treats to all dogs, he was not too eager, but let me pet him. This gave an opportunity for the other lady to pull the collar of her dog over him and for me to attach my lead. He did not resist, came along with no fuss, eager to belong it seems. Animal Control soon met us at the park and the same guy was able to lift him in to their vehicle with minimal resistance.
I sure hope this sweet dog finds his way in to a good home real soon. He should be at the shelter and I will contact them and follow this and last night's stray to the best of my ability. I am worried that they might be someone's dog, that they belong to a home nearby the dog park? Feel free to use the images to alert others to this two dogs. Let us do what we can to take care of pets, if they are ours or not.
