No good deed...

sorry to hear this
I keep a catch lead in my car - its one of the ones with a ring on the end
and no snap like the vets use to take an unleashed dog out back :-) slide
loop over head and dog is caught - if you work it right one hand can offer a
treat while the other slides the leash loop off your arm and over the dog's
head.
in a pinch reversing your dog's lead and using the loop in the handle to
make a noose from it can work too.

Hello everyone.  Yesterday Stacey Dog and I went to Ravenna Park.  When we
drove up, a very sociable muttdog came running up to see us.  I could see he
had a collar with tags, so I thought I'd try to catch him and return him. A
nearby resident saw the dog running up to me, and he said he'd seen the dog
around for 2 weeks, and offered the use of his phone if I caught the dog.

Well, I was unable to catch this dog.  I could get close enough to almost
touch him, but then he would dance away.  I got a grip on his collar, but my
grip wasn't secure and he twisted and ran, yanking my little finger sideways
and breaking it. Today I am home from work, waiting for a Dr appointment.
And I don't think the dog is a true stray; he has fur like a golden
retriever, and it was brushed out, untangled and glossy.  That dog had not
been sleeping outside for 2 weeks, he was too nicely kept.  I am sure he has
a home, and either gets out or is let out to run.  Oh well, better luck with
my next rescue attempt!  jdoee and Staceydog
