COMMUNITY SAGA & JAYCE
(Jan 2018) A large stray dog took up residence in the Five Oaks Community. This stray found shelter under a porch or two, as well as in the old water treatment shed across the Lake. This pooch appeared calm, confident and certainly *street smart*. Many of our neighbors, while walking their dogs, encountered him just standing and staring ~ not at them, but their dogs (friendly but kept his distance). Not to be too anthropomorphic, he was wary of people, but it was apparent he yearned for canine companionship. Through the many weeks he wandered loose around our neighborhood, and he met and made many friends/admirers. One of his regular hangouts, with the guidance of Independent Animal Rescue (IAR), was his *feeding station*, with many neighbors contributing kibble. IAR was an extremely important player in this saga – providing and assisting with setting up a humane trap at the location of the feeding station. Through these weeks, he was also spotted on Farrington Rd, Durham Chapel Hill Rd, Prescott Pl, with eighty (80) responses flooding the NextDoor site
