    dog

    Dear all,

    Could you please help me with this sentence? Thank you very much!

    "I found a stray dog roving on the street."
    (wondering)

    I don't know which verbs here are appropriate to express my idea.
    I try to convey the message that the dog is poor.


    Best wishes,

    Vivian

    Re: dog

    Do you mean:

    "I found a stray dog roaming the street."

    "I found a stray dog wandering the street."

    Re: dog

    Not teacher

    I found a stray dog roving the street. You don't need 'on'.
    Roaming works, too, more likely roaming in the neighborhood.
    A dog can't be rich or poor, but it can be in poor condition, or poor health.
