Puppies missing from Kambah/Oxley

By 8 November 2011 6

Approximately a week after this article about missing animals was printed in the Canberra times I heard about 2 cases of missing puppies from Tuggeranong.

The first of which occurred in Oxley in which a kelpie went missing from a back yard and then on the 31st of October a staffy went missing from Kambah . Both were puppies around 8 months old.

Tis the season to be mindful folks, if you have young dogs make sure you keep an eye on them. There is nothing worse than losing a pet. If you happen to know anything about the two dogs I have mentioned above, please don’t hesitate to report it, whether it’s having seen them roaming around or if you know someone who has recently obtained a young dog under suspicious circumstances.

Could that be similar to what they do in Hong Kong- people make good money on selling you caged birds, so you can set them free.After you do that and a bird flies away, you feel happy, the seller feels happy, bird free at last….Only that bird is trained to fly back to seller’s home, to be sold the next day. :)
I bet these puppies were trained to return to the breeder…To be re-sold. LOL.
On a more serious note-I hope they find them.Tuggeranong is a dangerous place.:)

Living in Kambah, it amazes me how often I see dogs out and about on the street. It is surprising they arent dognapped or involved in accidents some other ways.

The award for the ACT’s dog/cat sinkhole has to go to Charnie, the amount of posters stuck on the community noticeboard or shop windows indicating someone’s labradoodle or cross burmese brazilian short-hair that has taken an extended term of leave from the warm fires of home is amazing. They will uncover a massive pit of bones in years to come akin to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elephant_graveyard

Charnie doesn’t count.It is well known fact that people living there resort to eating dogs, due to lack of money to buy beef and other meats. :)

I hear in some parts of Charnie dog meat is considered a luxury..Somewhat akin to Venison.

Charnie doesn’t appear on the list of highest suburbs for animal disappearance, it seems to be more prominent on the south side according to the Canberra Times article. We are in the suburb next door and our puppy has been in the backyard every time I have gotten home. So maybe this is a Kambah feral/thieving issue….
