    I have only read the first post and my immediate response is simple - you're a thief. Dog needs to go do its time in the pound and then be rehomed - as is the law.

I am not going to be cross examined and continuosly go over the same thing and I'll be damned if I will take it to a pound....I just wonder about some so called dog lovers....Yeah, take it to the pound, and if your lucky she might find her owner (fat chance) or a new home ( maybe)...or euthinised after one week. I won't even take the chance.
    Ummm, i actually live in pendle hills, 2 suburbs away from seven hills! (yup, look it up on google!) and i have seen nothing regarding this lost dog! Seriously!? I said take her to the pound and leave your name on her. if you were smart you would also contact numerous rescue organizations asking if they could also help and if you really care as much as you say, offer foster care/cost of basic care while she looks for the right home! You know you can be charged for stealing and possession of stolen property if her owner did find you and decided to press cahrges for not handing thier dog in? do you want a criminal record? Like Anne said, as responsible dog owners, we obide by the law, I couldnt have said it better myself! Why do you think you are above it? Use ways around it but dont fight it cause you cant fight the law, you are never going to win! (And could end up in BIG trouble!)

If you Google lost Stffy, you come up with a host of adds. Even this post will show up...Don't you think the onus is on the original owner to do something?. It seems many think I stole this dog....All my actions have been for the welfare of this dog....All I want is agood loving home for her....no money, even though she has cost me quite a lot.
    Well, no, in your original post you didnt actually say what steps you have taken to try to reunite her with her owner, nor do i see any adds myself when i google lost staffy (theirs a MILLION! Some over 10yrd old) or lost female staffy, or lost female amstaff, I cant actually see anything myself for her! Thats what we are saying, do you know how many dogs, how many staffys go missing, or worse get stolen. So how can you presume her owners are going to find you? Perhaps it appears in your google cause you have recently been to those sites? I dont know, But i cant see her anywhere as a mention of a lost/found dog!

    Hey there Bella1,
    I'll start by saying good on you and your son for keeping this pooch out of harms way, checking her for a microchip and providing a safe home for her.
    However,
    I do agree with the others. Laws are there for a reason, and I do think you should have gone through the right channels to try and find the dogs owners. You could have had the option to adopt / foster her if she wasn't reunited with her owners.
    I find it quite upsetting how you are being so judgemental about the owners. For all you know the owners have been frantically looking for their beloved dog. Just because they havn't come accross your ads etc does not mean they havn't been looking. There could be dozens of reasons why the owners have not come forward.
    -All it takes is someone else before you taking the dog in ( maybe miles away from where you found it) and the dog escaped, ended up with you. Further and further away each time from her home

    -The first place people go to to look for their dog is the local pound and shelter. Don't assume the dog lived in the area where you found it. I've known of dogs to run for miles after being freaked out over fire works, thunder etc. ending up on the other side of town.
    -Most of us are lucky enough to have access to the internet. You can't assume all people do. Some don't. Therefore, they'll never see what you put on there.
    - The owners could be away
    - The dog could have been staying with someone and jumped the fence
    etc,etc,etc.
    I've seen a few stray dogs and adopted one myself. None of them looked as good as this girl. They're were very skinny, ribs showing, shy/fearful, dull coat etc.

    It sounds to me like this pooch had just escaped from it's yard. Probably not very long before your son brought her to you.
    My gut also tells me that your son might have liked the dog and thought that if he brings it to you, you'll keep it, but once you guys realized that the dog does not suit your lifestyle, you thought you would re home it.
    I'm sorry, but that's the only explanation that comes to my mind in regards to your behaviour and attitude towards pound/shelter( which gives the best chance for the owners to find their dog).
    Why did your son rush to get this dog home to you? He could have door knocked around the area, talked to passers by, local shops, asked around to see if anyone recognized the dog....

    I also think that that the advice from other member who have replied to this post should be valued and not criticised especially someone like Anne who is obviously experienced in this field.
    And honestly! When you post this dog on a forum. Tell people it's a found dog and you're re homing it....what do you expect? (Most of us think 'OMG! what if that was my dog- I'd have no chance') . Ofcourse people are going to react. No one is going to say Yes please! I'll have it...

    Just another question....you rescue Pugs....I assume you get many from animal shelters...why don't you leave them there?
    This is now becoming almost futile.

    I know exactly what the law is. I have told you what the law is. I have told you what Act the law is from and who created the Act. Apart from reading you the Act in person I can't see what else I can do to have you actually learn something.

    Do you have trouble with reading and comprehension?

    Yes I rescue Pugs. Because I have high regard for the law and I have high morals and ethics, if I were to find a Pug wandering I would have it scanned and if an onwer could not be traced by a chip or it was not chipped I would take it to the pound and then tender for it - in otherwsie, BUY it back from the pound. That way, I follow the law and also ensure the dog does not end up euthanased.

    As for the question "why would I leave them there?" it doesn't even make sense. I rescue them... is that too hard also for you to comprehend? I go to pounds and I PAY money to purchase the Pugs from pounds. I then desex them, fix up any of their health issues and then I find them homes.

    I've had enough of this senseless conversation. You can't argue with people who lack basic comprehension or who simply refuse to listen. I hope the dog has a happy future although with your lack of knowledge and self serving piousness I think the chances are slim.

    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Oh good dog! That statement just smacks of self importance and arrogance.
