    Lala, from memory he was impounded either at the end of September or early October last year, so 8 or 9 months now. Poor Butch.

    At the end of the day these people did try and do the right thing.

    Doesn't matter it was on the deadline .... it was still within the time frame and thus they were doing the right thing.
    The fact that Council knew this and then deliberately sent them away knowing full well that they were already going to seize the dog in question . That to me isn't just sickening ... it's scarey.
    A position of power abused in such a blatant manner without discourse .

    Choppa if they were so interested in doing the right thing then their dog would have been registered 6 years ago. Cmon you seriously cant take all the blame off them, yes maybe some but not all.

    Yes peter70, I agree with you - follow the rules of the area that you are in - and there should be no problems. But !!!

    So here am I, who has always had registered dogs with the local council, picked up the poo and all the rest of the things that you need to do to satisfy all the laws of where you live and be a good dog owner.

    But - what happened to me nearly 12 months ago - was I had a problem with the people that read our electricity meter. I had 2 bills in a row that were estimated. I phoned the company - and - low and behold they told me that I had a dangerous dog in my yard. I laughed - but !

    So the next time this little treasure come around - me and the pup were ready - pup was on lead and I opened the gate for our meter to be read! The meter reader came in - with a bit of wariness - but he eventually read the meter with the pup watching him closely - but leaning against him - with tail wagging and doing typical GSP whoo whoos! With the gate closed, I did ask him if I could let the pup off lead - he said no worries. So I asked could I see on his computer what has been written about the pup ! He actually suggested that he would change what was written there. So lo and behold - pup - was longer a dangerous dog.

    So I suppose what I am trying to say here - it will not always be your neighbours that will dob you in to the local council.

    But - it didn't end there - when it was time to pay the council registration for the pup - the person at the council actually said to me - that as I did not have a dangerous dog on the premises - that it would be the normal rate!

    The other day, I had my electricity meter read, the bloke waltzed through the front gate, left it open, even though he could hear Oskar barking. I asked him if he could close the gate,he did, even though it looked like it was a bother for him. He asked me if the dog was inside, I said yes, he is friendly though, and the bark was because he could hear someone at the gate. He said" oh yeah, I have heard that before'. now, we have extended the height of our fence, so it contains Oskar within, it doesn't take a genius to figure that we have a dog. Do I need to have a sign as well? WHat's the go? I thought if u had a sign up, you were advertising the fact you have a dangerous dog.

    I had the same thing happen 10 years ago when I had Rotties, didn't even know it was happening until I received a $900 power bill, talk about underestimating.

    There is a law (in NSW) that electricity readers should be able to get to your meter without "danger" such as dogs.......I know this, because we have Geese and our meter reader has been accosted by our geese...we have now made a safe fenced path for the meter reader so that he does not get bothered by the Geese LOL...The guy does not worry about our dogs when they are out and about. And he knows that when the dogs are loose the geese are locked up and he walked in, even before the fenced path. We were lucky the council just told us nicely and asked for us to fix it

    Yes newfsie - I understand what you are saying - but I have what I call a puppy yard within the big yard - so unless I am out in the big yard then pup is with me. This was also explained to the meter reader! But I fear - that we will be very soon only able to have very little dogs - and not what we want !

    Oskar's mum - yes that happened to me just last week - thank whatever god is looking after the pup - that the pup was still in bed at 7.25 in the morning snoring ! It was cold ! Yep - gate wide open - did not give a damn!
