Daisy wanted to help this pooch get reunited with its owner and thought to herself that she’d better check exactly what the collar had written on it. Perhaps she could find some useful information about the owner that would give her some clues as to what she needed to do next.
She managed to get a little closer to the collar so that she could get a look at the message written on it. Daisy was quite stunned at what she read and immediately turned to her hubby. Maybe he could make sense of it all because she certainly could not.
But Collared Dogs Are Not Homeless
Daisy was quite shocked at the discovery at first since she'd been seeing this dog wander around without any humans nearby during the days before their encounter. She thought to herself that, seeing as this dog had a collar on, perhaps it was not a stray dog after all but, in actual fact, came from a solid home.
Most times, when a dog has a collar on, it usually means that it comes from a place where people care enough to put a collar on it. It was quite a relief actually to know that there must be someone out there who cares about this doggo.
The Next Steps
What shocked Daisy and her partner the most was the fact that the information on the collar was not really related to anything that one usually sees on a dog's collar. There was no phone number, address, or any other identifying contact details of a potential owner written anywhere.
Who gets a dog a collar and forgets to put all the necessary contact details on it? Not only that, but the collar had one sentence on it strictly asking not to give it food as it was getting too big. Looking at the dog and seeing his state didn't seem to correlate with that odd message.
Everyone Chipped In
Nonetheless, Daisy and her spouse forgot about the mysterious collar when they both noticed that the doggo seemed to be staring at their food. Perhaps the dog was hungry, and maybe they needed to feed it. Of course, they weren't going to just let the dog go hungry.
Naturally, they gave the dog some of the food they had with them at the park that was okay for dogs to eat. Her neighbors who were at the park also started noticing the stray dog that they'd seen there a bunch of times before. They also generously chipped in and gave the dog some treats.
A Male Chocolate Lab
The dog happily gobbled down the treats that they put out for him. He was quite friendly but still seemed a little weary of strangers, and he didn't come as close as most loving dogs do. As it appeared to them, the dog was clearly a male Labrador Retriever, grown to his full size.
He had a chocolate-colored coat and had an easygoing vibe to him. He definitely seemed to be motivated by food, as he would always make an appearance if there was food around. Daisy noticed that as the days went by, the Labrador just stayed near or in the park.
