a dog in good condition wandering round gets returned ONCE with a warning keep it home or somethings going to happen...
see it again its officially abandoned property inmy eyes and you can go relaim it form the shelter if you care enough.
In this case the dog is clearly NOT in good condition so all bets would be off...since theres babies involved id give her a few weeks to get those babies weaned (minimum of puppies being 6 weeks old, 8 weeks being better) and then sorry folks, cant keep yoru dog home?! mabe someone else can.

Don't think I haven't thought about this! Of course, I want to keep her, she is just so sweet. However, I'm afraid she might try and succeed in getting out of our fenced yard and head back to her current home, which is close by. The owner told me this dog had disappeared for a couple of days and she didn't know where the dog had gotten off to -- sheesh, I'd been worried sick if it were one of mine! But I plan to keep updated on the pups and when they are older, take them all to the no-kill -- I know they'll get homes. People love to adopt puppies; me, I like the older dogs.

I seriously doubt the owner treats her for heart worms and hope she's had her rabies vac. Two of our dogs, a pit bull mother and pup adopted us by wandering onto our property malnourished and collar-less, mother tested positive for heart worms, so we paid for the treatment in addition to spaying both and now she and her pup have a forever home and go in for their yearly checkup and vacs next week. I'd be absolutely sick with worry if they were gone for any length of time, which is why we have our yard fenced. Of course, they never attempt to leave, they know what they have; both love being inside and spoiled.

MAybe a better strategy would be to make nice with these people and educate them on caring for their pets. Maybe they'll change???
