If the owner turns up then they have to be handed over regardless of your feelings since if they were lost for a while then that could be the reason for the thiness and I know quite a few dogs who won't let you stroke them if they don't know you. I still can't stroke a rottie who has known me for ages now and plays with my dog so they may well be shy by nature. If you're worried the only thing you can do is let the local animal society know so they can look in. If the owner showed up with proof of ownership then if they're not handed back they are completely within their rights to call the police to come and help them remove the dogs.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Which is why I would deliver them. Nothing says I have to give them MY address for a pick up. I am, maybe, suspicious by nature. But I would be thrilled to find that they were simply lost and hungry as a result.

When I was fox hunting, our hounds had the Hunts name, the huntsman's phone number tatooed inside the ear of each hound along with a reference number for that particular hound. They were always getting lost.

I agree with delivering but even then you still would have to hand over the dogs even if the conditions aren't what you'd like and call the animal societies. We used to have a poodle who would hide from men, wouldn't let them near him and he'd never been hit by a man. Personally unless they're really fearful or aggressive I think it's just them being shy.

I've never known a Shortie to be afraid of pats and cuddles. They are bred to be people dogs - in most cases so they believe actually being people. It's just not in their nature to cower and be stand-offish.

Hopes it ends well for them

Kevin is right, GSP are usually quite thin, but that is excessive. The black one is probably part GSP, but they GSP are either liver (all brown) or liver and white (ticked or patched) so the black one must have something else in there. GSP's are also a little stubborn and roaming. My dad trained a few of them when I was little and they're notorious for wandering out of their boundaries.

I also agree with opening day wander-off's. My husband always cusses about hunters with under-trained dogs. He's had his birds stolen by other hunter's dogs because they let their dog run too free and don't have a solid recall.

Poor puppies look rough.

Awww a miracle for those poor dogs. Adnan and I both agreed that the next dogs we get after Rocky(my current pooch), will all be rescues. What a miracle she did by taking those poor innocent animals in.

Would letting police or animal bylaw know that you have them(or the BO), be a good idea? might cover your butts if the idiot who abused them finds them and decides to get after you for "stealing" their dogs.

What a miracle, very heart warming. Great post, thank you for sharing.

the red one looks like a pointer. The male looks like a blue tick.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must also know how to fall
