Dog Rescue

Today while driving down main street in the fair city of Longmont, I saw a little dog running down the middle of the street. Main is a very busy street and I was afraid the dog would get run over. I hit the hazard lights, opened the door, and fortunately, the dog jumped in.
It looks to be a Brussels Griffin, similar to the one in the picture above, only more gray in color. It's a really nice, mellow dog although it doesn't care for my cats.
I took it to my vet to have them scan for a microchip. It doesn't have one, and didn't have a collar. Over the week I'll have to call vets and the Boulder Humane Society to see if anyone reported a missing dog fitting the description. I am not going to put flyers because there are freaks out there. If someone puts up flyers with a picture of this particular dog, we'll be on the lookout for them. My son is currently attending the community college in Longmont to obtain his EMT certification, so he'll be able to watch for flyers and check the classified ads to see if someone is looking for the dog. Until then, I don't mind keeping her. She's really easy-going--other than the growling at the cats part. But even that isn't a real big deal and I think she'll get used to them pretty quickly.
The only thing is, I hope if someone's looking for her we connect quickly, otherwise I'm going to get really attached.

His look alike is cute. Good job on the rescue.

Thank you--I was so relieved when she jumped into the car. Then I started thinking "I hope this little critter is friendly and doesn't bite my leg!" But she's super friendly, no trouble at all.

Pup's owners were found! I called the humane society on Monday to see if anyone had reported a missing dog fitting her description. She belonged to a very nice family with two young girls who were very glad to be reunited with their furry friend.
