I've come across a dog running free in some mires. A while back I fought with, and killed, a Njerp and wounded his dog, which fled. I'm wondering, first, if this is that same dog.

Secondly, the dog allows me to approach it but it 'barks disagreement' when I try to put a rope on it. It also will not eat any meat I offer it. I've talked to it but get no options.

Has anyone yet had an event like this? Is it possible to recruit/capture the dog? I've saved my game, hoping that someone has some advice on this. Thanks!

You can only capture dogs inside villages. I have read it somewhere here or on the wiki.

There is a conclusion to this event.

I went back to the game where the dog was still running around me. I wondered if he'd follow me home and started the trek back. After a while he took off going the opposite way, so I hit 'Enter' and went to the strategic map.
NOW, as I look back, I see a man. When I go to him the dog is running around him and there's a bloodsign on the ground nearby. I check his inventory and see that has fox fat and 4 fox cuts. Evidently, the dog was with the hunter, who was previously distantly stalking a fox while his dog was stressing about me and my pack of animals.

So, it's not the Njepr's dog. It's interesting that the hunter's dog had wandered so far from his master.

it sometimes IS useful to climb on a tree!

I'd love to see stranger dogs becoming your companions by feeding or helping them with injuries though...
