    Begs the questions: Was the dog neutered? If so, it would have less desire to run. Was the dog microchipped? If so, the owner would have been found immediately, not after 36 hours. A stiff fine for reuniting rescued pets and/or requiring microchips & spay/neuter could lessen the stray problem. Shelters have enough to deal with with the overpopulation problem.
