In the mean time...
After arriving at home I was sad and mopey. I told Lauren that if I knew the dog was still there I would drive all the way back to get it. He thought that if I wanted the dog that badly that I should try and get it. Excited I called the rangers at El Morro planning on asking them to call me if the dog showed back up and see if they would give him water and keep him until I arrived. When I called, I found out they had already tied him up and given him water because he was pestering all the guests and following them on their hikes. They were planning on calling a shelter the next day. Very excited I told them not to call a shelter and that I would be there before noon the next day.
That night I went shopping for a leash, collar, kennel, food, treats, toys, the works. I picked up Eastwood the next day, brought him home, and then promptly took him to the vet. The poor puppy spent two hours in the car, 1 hour in a completely new environment, and then had to pack back up for 2 hours at the vet. He was very good (even though he was terrified... he only peed 3 times in PetSmart...) and even the vet commented on how chill he was.
Now that he has been home with me and settling in, he is a very happy dog. He gets three walks (almost) every day, play time, and he is of course very spoiled. Lauren and I love our new little dog. He is a Shepherd mix of some sort. We think he has corgi in him because he only comes up to my knees and has a little fluff of a tail. When he gets excited he wags his whole backside.We are working on potty training and heeling. So far he seems to be fairly smart.
