Today, as my daughter and I were coming home we saw two little dachshunds coming down the mountain. We stopped, and the next several cars behind us stopped. Two girls grabbed the little brown one, but the little black one with a collar and shiny tag ran down the hillside. We tried to catch the the dog, but could not get to it. It is a pretty steep hill. By the time the black dog disappeared there were at least 5 other cars full of people that had stopped to help us find the little thing.
Every single car that came by us stopped to see if we were ok, and asked if there was anything they could do to help. The girls that caught the brown dog kept him with them. My daughter and I went to the near by ranches to tell them to watch out for a small dog just in case it came to their house. None of the ranches had anyone home, or at least if they were on the property they were not at their main house.
Once we got home we told our neighbor the story so she could call any neighbors that might know who the small dogs belong to in the area. My hope is the poor thing can hide from the wild animals, and find a home that can help.
