Your dog needs time to adjust to your home and family. There are many scenarios that can encourage negative behaviors to surface, and we need to give them time to adjust and feel secure in their new surroundings with new people. Dogs may be resilient animals but they need to know we control situations.

One of the first things you should do is get the animal scanned for a microchip.  This is usually the quickest way to reunite found pets.
Second, list them with your local shelter, on Nextdoor, PawBoost, and in various lost pet groups on FaceBook. Be sure that anyone who claims the lost pet shows some form of ownership.

Shelter2Rescue is not able to accept stray animals. We are a volunteer and foster-based organization with limited resources.
