Lost Dog Seeks Owner(s)

DSC_0765
I was drawn to my back door (1200 block of Florida Ave) by whining and scratching around 9pm tonight. It was a smallish male pitbull, black with a white patch on his chest. He was very friendly, but also very scared. As I have a cat, I was unable to keep him overnight. A friend who works for the Washington Humane Society got him on a leash, and called two kind folks she knows from Animal Control. He's safe, and staying at the shelter. He looked healthy, & clean. I don't think he had been outside long. He was not wearing a collar. I think he was neutered.

1. They do sometimes euthanize, yes, although not routinely. They're not the kind of shelter rescue organizations are referring to when they talk about saving dogs from "high-kill shelters" etc.

2. Probably for the same reason that you haven't gone to the shelter to adopt the dog.
