Blog: Found Dachshund/Min-Pin on York Boulevard

I'm looking for the owner of a male Dachshund/Min-Pin that I found in Highland Park today.

This little guy followed me and my dogs home this morning.  

He looks like a dachshund/miniature pinscher mix and is not microchipped.  I have posted a sign in the Highland Park Animal Hospital and Café de Leche on York Boulevard.

Please contact me at 213-200-2977 or linda@reiki-la.com ASAP if you or someone you know is the owner.  

If he's not claimed by about 5 p.m., I'll take him to North Central Animal Shelter at 3201 Lacy St. Los Angeles, CA 90031, (888) 452-7381. Please notify me if you reunite with him so I know he's ok.  Thank you!

I suppose this dog was lucky someone reunited him with his non caring owner. What's with all the assholes who let their dogs running through the streets unattended, without collars, and no chips? Really, really unfortunate.

Yes, there's a constant stream of lost, un micro-chipped animals in this area. This is the 2nd dog I've reunited with its owner now and it takes a lot out of a person's day making a flyer, calling animal hospitals, looking on missing pet websites, etc. I told the man to "please get him micro-chipped in case he gets out again" and to reinforce whatever fencing they have (fingers crossed he actually does these things). I've had some upsetting close calls with large dogs approaching me and my small dogs. The Patch is a great way for people to get the word out about a lost pet though.

The laws of dog ownership are blatantly ignored here in TriParks. I have also, rescued, and fostered, off the street: wounded, blind, deaf,and horribly matted (to the degree of it being extremely painful to the animal),starving, and filthy creatures. It is an abysmal way to treat"pets". If there is anyone whom would like to start an HLP coalition for animals, let Dave Fonseca know. He can then let me know, and we'll get it going. We can do better, so let's work together. I would like to start by helping with a dog wash/grooming day, in a field or parking lot, as a fundraiser, to buy tags and microchips for our pets. We need a bank of them, and a fearless leader for the project. It's time. Who's game???

It is highly unlikely that there is any crossover between people who read Patch and people who let their dogs roam the streets.

Is this lack of "common sense" issue concerning animal care more cultural or socioeconomic? Or is it just "stupid is as stupid does"?
