Default Found a Yorkie Wandering the Neighborhood! (happy ending)

I was walking to my community's gym and as I was turning the corner a woman ran over to me, pointed and said "is that your dog??!!". I looked down the road and saw a Yorkie standing on the opposite corner. I told her it wasn't my dog. She explained that she and the elderly man in the car adjacent to us have been trying to catch it for the past 15 minutes but it kept running the opposite direction. I started walking over to him and his ears went straight back and tail between his legs. I lowered myself to the floor and in a high pitched voice i said "look what i haaavvveee". He started walking the other way. I told the woman to get in her car and follow him and I'll chase him. We had to do something. Thank God he doesn't run that fast! I finally caught him in someone's driveway. I had to crawl from the sidewalk to get him and then enticed him with "you wanna go in the car?".

The lady who had retrieved her car then pulled over and saw the Yorkie and I together and was relieved......until we called both phone numbers on his tag and they were BOTH DISCONNECTED! Bentley was clearly well taken care of as he had a nice haircut, collar and cute bandana. We decided to go door to door to find the owners. After about 20 minutes a car passed us and then reversed slowly. The woman said "wow that looks like my sister's dog. Bentley? Is that you???".

It was her sister's dog. And the driveway I caught him in was his driveway. Her sister's husband came outside and explained that Bentley has been getting loose since he taught him how to chase lizards in the garage

Ironically, Bentley's owners happen to be the folks who live directly behind me. He showed me the work he did in his backyard and we sat on the patio making small talk, while I wondered how on earth they can let this sweet boy EVER get loose. Interesting way to meet the neighbors. They did seem like nice folks.

So now if I ever see Bentley in the street I'll know where to bring him. Probably home with me And as a reminder, make sure you have accurate and up to date information on your dog's tag. I'm truly relieved I found his owners. I was getting very nervous holding that beautiful boy in my arms.

Oh, good job being able to catch him and return him home! Hope his yard is fixed from here on out so that he can't get out again. But good for you that a Yorkie is home.

I'm so glad your story had a happy ending. Great job catching the little guy and making sure he got home. I hope his people do make sure he doesn't get out again.

So nice of you to keep Bentley safe until you could find his mommie and daddy.

Wow, that is so great that you found his owners. I cannot believe both numbers were disconnected?! I bet they were happy that you found him...

I was adamant about them updating their tags. There was no address either, just numbers. The family moved about 2 months ago and haven't gotten around to changing the contact info.

I'm so glad it was you who found him, Karen! I hope the owners know how fortunate they were to have someone honest find their little fella. They may not be so lucky the next time. But, for now, Bentley is home safe and sound!

ok... at the risk of starting a firestorm, I'm going to bring up the fact that I had an invisible fence installed about a month ago. I had read many posts that were wildly opposed to them. ...but my guys were gonna die if I didn't do something. My neighborhood is full of golf carts, scooters, walkers, you name it. And try as I might, I couldn't control my boys. I could pretty much control Marley, my 'big' boy (9#), but my little guy (6#) is a wild man. What finally convinced me was holding the collar in my hand and walking over the "correction" line. It's not a shock -- maybe some of these fences shock, but not this one. It's like a "Tens" machine, which is an electrode based pain therapy. Now...I wouldn't necessarily want one on my neck, but it can't hurt you -- only startle you. Now, a month after installation, when I let the guys out with their collars on they stay in the yard -- no matter what temptation comes along. But the funny thing is, if they sneak out -- make a break for it if I'm getting the mail or closing the garage door -- they stay in the yard even without their collars. My and their lives are so much better. And I don't have to worry about the type of situation described in this post. Say what you will... if folks would make the investment for the invisible fence, there would be a lot more live Yorkies today.

But what stops loose big dogs from coming in your yard and attacking your babies?
