I have found a stray dog

Wait first that you can't hear or see someone looking for a dog. Look for a tag - hopefully there is one on the collar and it has a phone number on it that you can call to arrange the return of the dog.

By law, you must report all stray dogs to the Dog Warden, so if you can't find an owner call the Warden in your area as soon as you can. Most will collect, but some will ask you to deliver to kennels.
