Another lost dog

Mystery dog shows up unannounced

A lost dog found his way back to our farm today.

He's got a choke chain but no tag, and he's very friendly and obedient.

We posted a photo at the local post office bulletin board. Hopefully we'll find his owner, but if that fails we'll try to find him a good home.

Looks like he's already found a good home.

How does Lucy take to having another canine on the property?

We've had the mystery dog a full day now and he still seems nice. Lucy is okay with him at the moment because he submits to her, but we want to find him a home ASAP. He's got a bit of a Lassie vibe to him and with a little bit of training could be an awesome dog.
