MY TIPS ABOUT WHAT TO DO IF YOU FOUND A STRAY DOG:
First off, If you find a stray dog and haven’t caught him or yet , remember to approach them cautiously and observe their behavior to not get bit or hurt. They are usually very scared. You can try using some food to entice them to come to you or hold your hand out like you have some food.

If you cannot trap or catch the loose dog, call your local animal shelter or animal care and control in your area who have professionals to help trap and catch the lost pet.

1⃣Number 1: Check for a collar or any identification tags or a phone number to call their owner to let them know their dog has been found. You may be able to return their pet immediately.

2⃣Number 2: Is take them to a nearby veterinarian or shelter to get scanned for a microchip. This can help reunite them with their owners. I always advise pet owners to chip their dog incase they get out.

3⃣Number 3: This found dog is not yours, just yet. You must contact your local animal shelter and report the dog to them. There is usually a quarantine period of up to 10 days or 2 weeks to wait if anyone claims the dog. Once the quarantine time is up you can adopt the dog out or keep the found pooch.

4⃣Number 4: Spread the word that you found a lost dog! Create flyers with a picture of the dog and your contact information. Post them in your community, online, and at local businesses. This will increase the chances of finding the dog's owner or someone willing to provide a loving home.

In the meantime, provide the dog with food, water, and shelter. If possible, offer them a warm blanket or a safe space until they can be properly cared for.

‍⚕ ☝Remember, your actions can make a difference in the life of a stray dog. By following these steps, you can help them find safety, care, and a forever home. Thanks for watching, and don't forget to subscribe to our channel for more helpful videos like this one!
