frist call the pound/shelters in your area to see if anyone is looking for a dog like the one you found.
I used "Dog Detective" in the past. I see they have been acquired by this other company, here is the site:
If you cannot locate the owner, try yo figure out the breed(s) and contact a rescue group.
Take the dog to a vet or a shelter and have it scanned for a microchip! If it has one, then you can contact the microchip company and find the owner that way.
Having it scanned for a microchip is good as is calling your local shelter to see if anyone has reported a lost pet. Also, advertise in a few local papers as well. Good luck I hope the pup finds it's home.
He is lucky someone caring like you found him.
