Ok, it's a pigeon.

Hi guys, I'm new here. I was walking the dog, Molly, who's an English Springer Spaniel, and on the way home, there was a rock dove waddling along. Molly's bird dog instincs went off and she began to strain against her leash to get at it. I wasn't sure if the pigeon was hurt, or just being lazy. And it was retreating into the brush. So I let Molly off and she ran after it and began her barking. I figured she would just keep barking at it forever, so I went in after her. The pigeon was laying out. And at first I thought maybe it died of shock, or Molly actually had pawed at it.
But I saw its eye flicker, and knew it was still alive.
So I picked it up in my jacket and brought it back.
I haven't really looked at it, yet, I'm going to wait for my siblings to come back, then probably wait till tomorrow to see if it can fly.

It's under a basket on our porch, one eye looked slightly strange, but it might have been half closed. I'm gonna go check it again.

I don't know what to do if it's injured, maybe take it to a wildlife bird rescue if the need calls. I need some advice here.
