We found our current dog last year. We were sitting in the back yard smoking a cigarette, and a husky just walked on by, so we whistled to him and he just walked up and never left after that lol. No tags, no chip, nothing.
We were living at the time in an area that is notorious for people just literally dumping their dogs and driving away. And it pisses me off even more with how incredibly loving and friendly he is. He didn’t even have a single problem with our two cats. He is honestly one of the sweetest, gentlest dogs I’ve ever seen.
By the second day, he was already acting like he had been in our family for years. What was extra sad was the way he had separation anxiety really bad for a while. Anytime we even went for a 10 min walk without him, or even just sat on the porch with him still inside, he would sit with his nose against the glass looking like we were going to abandon him.
And the first time he went for a car ride, he whined the whole time after needing to be lifted into the car, in such a way it was obvious his last car ride ended with being pushed out of a car and left behind.
