    Well there goes what "little respect i had for pounds" out the window.
    I thought the same. Or is that only with dogs that get found or brought in, not surrendered?

    Dogs that are found roaming the streets etc are given 7 days if they are not chipped, 14 days if they are chipped.

    Dog surrendered by their owners, ie they sign over their ownership, are usually destroyed the same day - in peak "dump" times, there is a good chance that the dog is dead by the time the owner drives out through the gates.

    Doggie Rescue do not take surrenders, they only deal with pounds, and then 99% of their dogs are small dogs.

    Unfortunately I simply don't have the room to take another dog, however if the dog's owner will hang on to him, I can put the dog on Petrescue for him. In the meantime they may find a rescue to take him.

    If you would take the dog it wouldn't cost that much to fly him down to Vic.

    Why is the dog going to be surrended to the pound on Monday? As in, what is the reason the current owners are choosing to do this?

    Any person who is the owner, and hands over a dog to authorities and fills out the accompanying paperwork, relinquishes all ownership of the dog. Von is correct, many pounds will kill them instantly, or within 24 hours. Some will not, some have a no-kill policy, but they may also be few and far between.

    I know how many pounds work, and I also know the reasons behind this policy that may seem horrific to some. It IS horrific, I agree, but perhaps a little more understanding of how the entire system works would go a long, long way to realising the true problems, which is not that of the pounds, IMO.

    Actually I find this very offensive. I have a working breed and live in a standard suburban house. It's beside the point that by the time Batty is 1 year old we will be on a property.

    It's not about having a working breed in suburbia. It's having a working breed in suburbia and NOT exercising it's mind and body sufficiently. If you have a working breed you need to be able to provide the mental and physical stimulation for them (twice daily walks and lots of training) or they do go nutso. It's about responsible ownership, not breed restriction IMO. If you can't be responsible and give the dog what it needs both mentally and physically you shouldn't have obtained the dog to begin with.

    Rant over.

    I wish I could help, I'm west of Brisbane though. I have the yard and the time to help him, but it wouldn't be permanent here, retraining and rehoming.
