There's that dog again, at edge of the dog park all alone. Maybe it's time to do something.

The article advises distributing posters locally with a photo of the dog but this might attract the wrong person. It's OK when you're looking for a lost dog but not a good idea when you've found one and are looking for the owner. The worst thing though is to just walk away and leave a stray to its fate. It's always a good idea to make sure it goes to a shelter where anyone coming to claim the animal will be corrrectly vetted by staff, and if nobody turns up the poor stray has a chance of eventually finding a good home.
