Good luck with finding a place for the dogs! Hopefully a rescue will take them...
I also live in the middle of a nature preserve and of course, this is not my first doggy visitor. He was friendly and nothing but bones. So much so that his hip has caused a sore on his skin. There is not meat and he is limping on the leg that has said sore on it. I called the pound and told them I had this one here and the neighbor also had one at his house. We will see what happens when they call me tomorrow. I know the girl who runs the dog pound and she will take them both, fatten them up a little and find a coonhound rescue for them. Of course, no collars on either, both starved and neither one is fixed. One male and one female.
He came strolling up and crossed the creek and came walking towards my stallion in the pasture. My stallion was trying to coax him into the fence so I quickly ran the dog off as I was unsure of it's personality and I was walking another horse around outside. My stallion was going to kill that dog, as it would not be the first dog he has killed that wandered into his pasture. When the dog came back I talked him over to me and then quickly slapped a collar and tie out on him so he can not do any damage. I guess the neighbor said his garage is destroyed inside from those two chewing a hole in the door and getting in.
