What To Do If You Find A Lost Dog

The first thing that will happen no matter what is the first contact between you and this strange dog or cat. For this encounter, it is a good idea to approach the animal in a calm slow manner talking to them with the calmest voice you have. It is important to check for some sort of collar to ensure this dog is not a stray who could have rabies and bite you (if they don't have a collar it may be best to call your local animal control agency to be safe).

Some dogs will be incredibly easy and nice coming right up to you and will be happy go lucky. Others can be aggressive and scared which can make it slightly harder to get them to calm down. This can be due to things like anxiety and stress which could have led them to this point.  

If you notice they are acting strange it may be a case that they are injured, if this seemed like a possibility it is a good idea to get them to an animal hospital if the dog will let you.

If you do encounter a dog that is aggressive it is important to not make them feel threatened or cornered. You can help them by kneeling down to seem less dominant but make sure you are not being too vulnerable in case the dog does end up getting aggressive with their actions. If the dog does attack make sure to keep your distance and contact your local animal control office to help with the situation.

After this section, the dog should be under control and either with you off the streets or with animal control who can help get them back home.
