I was going through my pictures, and I thought I'd share these.
This happened a few summers ago. I came home from work, and there was a dog asleep in my driveway. The second he saw me he ran away. But ten minutes later he was at my back door. When I went out, he ran.
So I called Animal Control (I'm friends with the ACO). Her and I went around trying to find him. Couldn't find him. She gave me some canned dog food, so I left it out in a bowl in the backyard. He came back, but ran away when I came out again. So I tossed treats at him, and slowly lured him towards me. He eventually got close enough to let me touch him, then I looped the leash around his neck.
After a few minutes of talking to him, he was real friendly. I hung around with him for about an hour before the ACO came back to pick him up. Here are some of the pictures I took. He's not a pit, but I thought he was pretty. He was about 50 pounds.
PS. I called the ACO the next day, and his owners got him. He had been missing for a week!
