Shall I Keep This Puppy or Look for Its Owner?

Early this morning, my two dogs almost killed a stray puppy in my garden. I went out as I heard them barking out angrily. They were about to devour the scared pup so I rushed to stop them. As I picked up the puppy, my dogs sensed that I was protecting the puppy so they behaved and went back to their house quietly. The pitiful puppy was terrified and trembling so I caressed and comforted the poor little creature. Now the pup would not want to leave my side. Wherever I go, it will go. I wish I could keep this cute white puppy but chances are, the owner is already worried and searching.

If you think he has a home, then it's best to try to return him. But if you have a lot of stray dogs near you, he could well be homeless and if he (and your dogs) want him to stay, then it looks like you've got a new friend.

You have a good point. But, there are no stray dogs in my place and so it is very likely that someone really owns this.

@salonga Then probably they are heart broken. Sadly for you, you have to try to find his humans.

@boiboing Yes, they must be so sad so I can't really keep this dog unless we have checked the whole neighborhood and no none claims it.

Poor little thing, I am glad you saved the puppy. Ask around to know if someone is searching for the puppy, she is cute.

Awww, such a cutie. I'm sure it's owner is looking for it and sad to know it is missing. I would also be afraid that your two dogs would hurt the puppy if you kept it.

He is certainly cute but two dogs are probably enough, aren't they? And as you say, someone is probably dreadfully worried about him. Hope you find his owner soon.

I was trying to overcome my temptation by thinking of the pain of caring for another dog but this puppy is so cute and so I am wishing no owner would claim lol!

@JudyEv lol, you are very right And by the time it is eating a lot then I'd probably regret keeping this cute little thing.

It is always good to hand the pup over to its owner, if there is any. But, if he is a stray, it would be difficult for you to abandon.

Yes, I can't abandon this cute dog even if when it grows older, it will not be a cute dog at all. But when the owner comes I will surely give back this pup.

@salonga I am glad that he is reunited with his master. I am sure he was thankful.. the adult dogs are really cruel when they see a stray pup in their locality.

@sofssu yes I saw how the happy eyes of the man, indeed he could not stop thanking us. It is better to give back to him before my two dogs devour this cute pup.

He doesn't have a collar or name tag so you could find the owner? You could try talking to your neighbors about the missing pup. He's adorable.

He is adorable. I think maybe you might just want to go to a few house right around you and see if one is missing. I know around here many dogs are thrown away after the puppies grow up. If nobody claims him in a few days I would adopt him and keep him for my own. He is adorable, tiny and cute. I don't think he will grow very big and you can have a new friend for life.

I would have adopted this pup if no one came but the owner was found by my husband. He did not know how to thank us because he loves the doggie a lot.

@salonga That is wonderful you found the owner. I am glad it wasn't a dog thrown on the road and left to find a home on his own. You did the right thing in finding his family.

That is true , you cannot keep the pup because her owners might get angry with you for keeping her as if she's yours .

Hi, got a very cute puppy. The best way to do is to return the puppy to his family. Even though you will miss him but still he's family misses him also.

I would recommend posting a picture on a site for pet shelters that way if someone is looking for him they can find him.

I would have done that if no one in the neighborhood claims but a neighbor 3 houses away from us claimed the doggie. It was obvious he was the owner because his descriptions matches those of the pup.

Oh shame, what a cute little puppy! If no one claims it, I am sure you can train your dogs to accept it, and give it a good home.
