Aw yay for happy dog stories!! I love them all..
Mine aren't quite as exciting.. but I have 3 small ones.
The first was, it was storming and we had a break. When I went to take Titan outside to potty he ignored me and rant ot the front door barking his brains out in his "this isn't a human but it's alive and it's on my door step!!!!!! MOOOOOM!!!!!!" bark
When I looked I initially thought it was a cat, because we have plenty the roam, but when I looked closer it was a Saint Bernard puppy! So I took Titan out back, brought the puppy, Max, in. It had a collar so I called the number and no one answered. I waiting a little while, and introduced Titan to the pup.. they were fine. Ended up realizing the house was right down the road, grabbed a leash and walked the pup to his home. They were out front looking for him when I brough him up... looked like a frat house, but all the guys were thrilled to see him. Ha!
The 2nd, is almost identical... only with a bruised nose and a shorter walk. I pulled into my driveway from work one evening to find a chocolate lab just sitting in my yard. When I got out of the car, I called him to me and he came crawling... literally crawling low to the ground wagging his tail furiously! When I bent down to pet him, he got so excited he shot up and BAM head to nose.. eyes watered, probably saw stars.. bruised for about a week. Lol. Well I didn't hold it against him, he was thrilled to be touched and wiggled A LOT. Well it took me a minute, between the wwatery eyes and the wiggle butt to actually read his collar. Another house jsut down the road.. walked over and the owner was there to greet me, didn't even know he was missing, said she JUST put him in the back yard.
my 3rd and final rescue story... is short.. I was driving home.. just down the road from my house, lol. And 3 GSDs shot across the street.. jsut playing with eachother. Cars were swirving to miss and all that. I pulled over, got out and called them.. who all came boundingtoward me.. thankfully SUUPER friendly. They didn't have collars but one bounded back across the road to a certain house and they seemed to be familiar with the place so I rang the doorbell, a big party going on.. lots of guys drinking and were like "oh hey! thanks!" and shut the door in my face.. haha.. oh well at least his dogs were safe!
All was well with all 3
Other than those I have tried to help numerous wandering dogs, but all run scared or just bark and bark, hackles up and such, so I end up leaving them as long as they are not on a busy road, and I check back later that day.
