Lost Dog Found Bell Mountain

Postby Melissa Rheinecker » Fri May 28, 2010 8:56 am

On May 14th I found a lost dog on Bell Mountain. It followed us 80 miles on a horse packing trip (of course we fed it because it was starving ).
I brought it home with me and took it to my vet. He says that It is about 8 months old unneutered male. It appears to be a beagle/blue tick hound mix, sweet as can be. It had a collar on but no tags. It had to be out there for a few weeks - very, very skinny and covered with ticks.
But it acts like it was a family pet. We have named him Scout. We have no idea if it wandered from some rural property or if lost by someone on the trail. We will keep him if no one claims him. Any body out there missing him? See picture. He is already a proven OT hiker, having trailed us all of Bell Mountain, Trace Creek and most of Courtois Section back to my place - River Oaks Ranch. I will post a trip report and trail condition report soon.
