Today I heard the chickens going crazy. I went outside and there was a young pit bull in the middle of them! I caught him and put him in an extra dog run that we have. He was really a sweet guy and I don't think he would have hurt the chickens, but of course they ran and he chased. No one was injured, but I thought my poor Petunia was going to have a heart attack (me, too)! Anyway, I kept him in the run for a couple of hours and then took him to Animal Control. I have no idea who owns him, and he (the dog) is lucky he was so sweet, or he would be underground right now. He was very well behaved in the car and quite a sweet guy, about 40-ish pounds and very young. If I didn't already have two dogs, I would have considered keeping him. Hopefully the folks at Animal Control will find him a home far, far away from my chickens. Why can't people keep their dogs secure?????
