I was driving down the street going back home when I saw this dog running around and a car leaving the scene very vehemently. I got out of my car while my husband tried to chase down the car. Unfortunately he lost it.
I think the guy just left his dog in the park. Threw him out and drove off. I took the dog back home, introduced him to my dogs and now he's chillin' with them. I put up posters. Walked around several complexes and put him up on craigslist. Seems like someone didn't want him but I give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Am hoping someone will claim him.
Is there anything I can do to speed up the process of getting him back home. I can't keep him. Will be moving in a week or so and I already have 8 animals total. I also don't want to give him up to someone who will use him as bate. Any advice would be helpful...
Take him to the vet and have him scanned for a chip.
What breed is he? Call rescues in the area.
Make signs and post them on telephone polls, convenience stores, vet offices, pet stores.
Call the human society and see if anyone has reported a missing dog.
If the person who dumped the dog is the owner then he probably will not even try to claim the dog. However, he might not be the owner and someone out there may be looking for that dog. So I do agree you should take the advice given to find the owner.

Thank you for helping a dog in need. You never know he could belonmg to a person ,not the one who dumped him. Your a very caring person Zeeva and your husband too.You should feel good about your willingness to help an animal in need. I know your moving so Thanks. I hope the dog has some one who truly wants him.
Update: I have gotten to know the pup a little better. He is still very much full of puppy breath, very energetic, people/stranger and dog friendly, unaltered, male and (I think) a pit bull mix. He is a little nippy and very jumpy but still very sweet and loves to give kisses. He is not microchipped (took him to the vet).
I can hold on to him till Friday since I will be moving to Chicago early Saturday morning. Please help me foster/adopt him out. Here is a picture of the sweetheart.
