This is my dog, Molly. I love her so much. I think if you see a dog on the side of the road -without an owner of course- you should pick it up and take it to an Animal Shelter. Some people say yeah its just a mutt it should find its own way home. It might not! If your dog got lost would you want someone to see it and pass? Especially by a road or highway? At least not me! If it is a Big dog, or if there is any other reason not to pick it up, you can call the Animal Shelter! I hate hearing about poor animals having to be put down.
