How to catch a wild dog

Where I work, we have a puppy, running wild, and would be starving, If I were'nt feeding it, but I need to capture it, so I can find it a home. Any suggestions, that don't require animal control(too much paperwork).

I might try that, I will have to go to the vet and get sedatives(I'm not a pill popper, so I don't have any around the house).

There is a possibilty that this is a coydog, in which case, it might present problems finding it a home. Does anyone know about coydog behavior?

Re: How to catch a wild dog

The best way to catch a feral dog is to continue feeding it and then put out a live trap. Usually either Animal Control or another rescue group in your area should have traps you can borrow.

The danger in drugging the bugger is that you don't know how much to use, if the dog will pass out somewhere you can find it, or if it will pass out where it won't hurt itself.

Never thought of that.

Not even funny.

If it is a pup and you have some time, try sitting down with food and talk him to you. Pup's are looking for positive attention and you might find it will be easier than you think. Good luck.

Re: How to catch a wild dog

Watch some of the old "Crocodile Hunter" shows and see how Steve Irwin used to catch live crocodiles. Then just make a modified trap to catch the puppy.

In all seriousness though maybe contacting the local Humane Society maybe the best thing, especially with it being feral who knows if it has any diseases/problems health wise.

Relax, I wasn't serious. I love dogs and wouldn't hurt one unless it was sick and threatening myself, my dog, or someone I love. I think the easiest and most effective solution would be animal control, I wouldn't trust a stray dog enough to get real close to it. Especially if it's hungry.
