Update to Found dogs my dilemma

By MsCheeky - 7 March 2012 18

Following on from my story about finding lost dogs…

I handed the dogs into the RSPCA. 

They ascertained the owner through their microchips, then they knocked on their door, rang on their bell, and tapped on their window too.  All to no avail.  The owner did not respond to the RSPCA’s efforts to contact them, so after the statutory period, they were officially classified as surrendered. 

To cut a long story short, the old boy, going on twelve and the younger but not young girl, going on nine, couldn’t be rehomed together. 

Rather than separate the dogs, I’ve taken them both in and given them a retirement home.  After a good cleanup and with some ongoing geriatric veterinary care, I think Feral and Cheryl can now look forward to a few good years. 

They’ve settled into my place as if they’ve lived there all their lives and seem to be happy and comfortable.   Thanks to everyone who cares.

What’s Your opinion?

I’m a bit of a technophobe, so a pic is a bit beyond me and my technology. But it was remiss of me to not also send my thanks to the RSPCA generally and Shauna and Irene particularly (I know you’re reading this!), for the fantastic care of the dogs while they were there and for just being ace human beings overall in caring about the future of these dogs, as well as all the other animals in their care.

Good for you. It’s a fair commitment to take on old dogs.

Love the names by the way!

you have a massive positive karma credit now. you obviously have a big heart – unlike the ugly hole in the chests of the previous owners. the dogs are a million times better off with you and i’m sure they’ll repay your kindness with doggy love 🙂

I like you 🙂

Wishing you much happiness with your new companions
