Default Karelian bear dog -- found

This dog showed up at my house a little over a week ago. I have put up flyers, posted on c-list, and have not found the owner. The dog was starving, so I have been feeding it. My neighbor came over and the dog was aggressive towards him, so I need to find the owner.

I did get a response from someone on c-list that stated the dog looked like a Karelian bear dog.

Any ideas on the best way to find the owner?

Thanks,
SpinnerMan

have you called your local pound and told them you found a lost dog? That's the first place I call when my dogs get out

If you do find the owner, mention a tag with a phone number would be nice. Saved me from pound visits several times this year as our old dog has decided to chew through the fence and go for walks.

Have you had the dog scanned for a microchip?

First of all, I have no control over this dog, he is rather large, and is very nervous, so I'm not going to try and capture him.

I called the Benton County Animal Control, their Animal Control Officer is on vacation until the 18th. She left a phone number to call in her absence.

I called and was told that the county couldn't do anything until the Officer gets back on the 18th. When I stated that I did not want to be responsible for this lost dog she said to stop feeding it!

So now I feel I have no choice. So I'll stop feeding it and hope its still around when the officer gets back from vacation.

I also called the Humane Society, they are closed on Monday, so I emailed them and also set them a flyer that I had made. I plan on calling them Tuesday.

Nice looking dog, too bad you didn't have a kennel you could get it in, 10 days is a long time.

Found these folks on line. They might know of a rescue organization. Almost every breed has one these days.

Chuck-
You don't really live near anything! If it doesn't belong to any of your "closest" neighbors, I would assume it had been dumped.

What about Lincoln county animal control?

First of all, my wife and I decided that we could not stop feeding this starving dog. I can pet it when I feed it, and I can feel the bones sticking out on its ribs, and the spine on its back.

We've decided to start making a home for the dog, my wife gave him the name of Bo.

Now we need to buy a pen to keep him in, and if no one answers our flyers or listing on c-list, we will make our final decision on the 18th.

Thanks for your responses and helpful suggestions.

That's a good looking dog you've got there. I'd let him get a good whiff of an antler, then go hide it & see what happens. You might have just had your' new best friend come & find you.?

Look at those sad eyes and then go look at your sad eyes in the mirror and that will tell who it's new owner is. Look on the bright side of things he's already keeping the Neighbors out of the yard just Imagine what he will do with strangers and salesmen.

When we were shopping for a family dog a Karelian was high on my list for that very reason. Keep us posted.
