Found Friday nite, June 4, about 9:30 pm on West Beach Road, just south of Fort Nugent (Oak Harbor), 2 young dogs headed south down the middle of the road.
They're obviously loved, but not loved enough to have had collars on with id. I fed and watered them and kept them overnight in my garage, took them to the WAIF shelter (678-5816) on Hwy 20 south of Coupeville this morning. Neither matched previously filed "lost" notices.
1) 5-6 month old male Malamute (possible mix). Possibly housebroken. Cream, silver and black. 50-60 lbs. Very sweet & loving. Was unable to determine if neutered or not. Seemed to have only one small testicle. Shelter name will be "Smarty" (because he IS and after Smarty Jones). Someone HAS to be looking for this dog -- he's a keeper.
2) approx. 1 yr old red merle long-haired Aussie mix, male, neutered. Bushy tail that curls over his back toward his head. Shedding furiously. Right eye is blue. Very vocal and quite insecure, dependent upon his buddy, "Smarty." But sweet and trusting (altho less trusting than S). He has a microchip registered with N.O.A.H. NOAH was going to get back to WAIF regarding that information. Shelter name will be "Whimper." Whimper is also very likely housebroken.
WAIF is closed M & T, so if you know anything about these dogs - who are very dependent upon each other - please phone and go check them out this weekend. They are really neat dogs.
