A friend of mine found her wandering the streets late at night exactly two weeks ago. We took her in that evening since my friend's two dogs did not like her, and we've had her ever since. I'm very very allergic to her and we've had no luck in finding her owners or a new home. She was very skinny and had recently had puppies; I don't think her old owners are looking for her and if they were I'm not sure they gave her the home she deserves. The vet said she looks good and just needs to be spayed. I would love to keep her but I am sooo allergic to her. If anyone has any advice or anyone living within driving distance of vegas can give her a good home, please let me know!

We think she is a papillon corgi mix. She weighs 20 lbs and is well behaved. She loves to cuddle and is impressively housebroken. No accidents at all since she's been with us! Her only issue is that she has separation anxiety. We hope to find someone who really loves dogs and can be patient with her to get over her separation anxiety. Another dog would be a big plus since she is very friendly and it would probably help her.

I will post pictures later today. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! I just don't have the heart to take her to a shelter and we've posted so many flyers and on so many websites, i'm running out of options.

Have you tried to find a papillon or corgi rescue group in your area?

Is there a humane society shelter or animal control agency where you live? If the answer is yes, I think the best thing to do is take the dog there. They can scan for a microchip, if the vet you took her to hasn't done that already, and take over the job of finding her owner or a new home. If she's somebody's beloved pet and they are looking for her, they must be going crazy, and checking every possible lead they can think of. They may have checked the shelter or animal control agency already, but may check again. If nobody IS looking for her, then she can rehomed to somebody who isn't allergic. I think it's time for the professionals to take care of her now.

Poor lost doggie.

If you can find a breed rescue to take her, her chances are much better than if you take her to a humane society shelter or animal control agency. There are so many additional animals losing their homes in this economy, and funding for shelters is down; her chances wouldn't be very good. Breed specific rescues will generally also take dogs who are mixed with other breeds.
