    Hi....

    Staffy Rescue can not take her as they will be breaking the law.

    The dog must be surrendered to the local pound and should have been surrendered when she was first found. I am surprised the Vet did not take her from you or instruct you to take her to the pound.

    I hope her owners were not scouring the lcoal pounds for her all this time while you have had her.

    In NSW you must take all strays to the pound.

What more can anyone do to find the owner? If the owner was responsible in the first instance and had her mico chipped, then she would have been home now. I feel no guilt in any action my son and I have done to save this dog's life.

    I fully agree with what you are saying, if her owner had been more responsible & had her micro chipped than she hopefully would be home with them now if they wanted her back...
    ( imo doubt that her owner even cares about her-considering that her age is roughy 2yrs old & seems to have had a litter of pups, too young to be having a litter & that alone IMO is bloodily irresponsible pet ownership )

    I'm glad that you feel no guilt for your & your son's very kind actions & getting her vet checked & for giving her a loving home, i would have done the same as you & gave / save a lost stray dog & i definitely wouldn't have taken her to the kill happy RSPCA

    I so hope that she finds a loving happy home....pls still contact staffy rescue, maybe Mina will be able to offer advice in finding her a suitable home or your legal rights in regards to re-homing her etc

    Its really wonderful of you wanting to take her in but as Anne said, she should and must be surrendered to the local pound or RSPCA. Also, micro chips are not always picked up first time. I have heard of dogs in pounds for months, they get transferred to new pound or foster care where they scan for a chip again 'just in case' and viola! The first vet actually missed it and the dog ends up going home. Last time the checked Leo his chip is sitting low on his left shoulder! (Not his neck where they implanted it!)

    Take her to the pound and you can leave your name on her if she is unclaimed. She does look like quite a well cared for girl from the pic, doesnt look under weight, nice shinny coat etc (Minus the ear infection but ear infections are not un-common; many dogs will suffer reoccurring infections. I have gotten them myself since I was a child, the doc always ask me doesnt your head feel like its going to explode!? Nope, im so used to them i cant actually even feel or know iv got one)

    Also, have you posted her anywhere as found? Or posted/handed out flyers locally? There are so many lost/found dogs sites, how can you presume her owners arent looking for her? Sorry, tehre are just SO many lost dogs that are loved but just never make it back to their owner for such reasons.

    Do let us know how you get on? You sound like a wonderful person just trying to do the right thing. Perhaps if you ring your local pound (In this case Blacktown) for further advice also?

    It doesn't matter who said what sadly. It is LAW in NSW that stray dogs must be handed into the pound. The Vet was worng in any case as the RSPCA does not take in strays. Stray dogs that end up at the RSPCA are sent to council pounds, usually Renbury or they will advise that the dog is taken to the impound facility for the area it was found in.

    The dog MUST be surrendered to the Pound by law.

    Aussieflyd, I am not sure why you think that Mina's version of the Companion Animal Legislation in NSW will be any different to mine. The Companion Animals Act in NSW states that wandering and stray dogs must be impounded. It is quite simple.

    I would hate to think that you were giving people the impression that Mina and Anthony would willingly break the law in regards to lost and found dogs. I would think that have higher ethics than that.

    As leo has pointed out, the dog may have a microchip that was not picked up by the scanner. Chips do migrate.

    There are laws we like and laws we don't but it is not up to us to decide which ones we will choose to follow and which we will ignore.

    If there are concerns about the dog being euth'd then I would notify a rescue that the dog was there and it will be released to the rescue when the 7 days is up. That is the LEGAL and ETHICAL way to deal with the dog in NSW.

    Anne..

    No i dont think that Mina's version of the Companion Animal Legislation in NSW will be any different to yours..

    No i was not giving the impression that staffy rescue are willing to break any dog legislation etc, i was just suggesting that maybe staffy rescue have some ideas for the op in relation what to do with stray/ lost/ found Stafford etc..

    But i will admit that i will do the same as the op..try to find the owners of dog, but they weren't to be found after endless trying, i would keep the dog if it was possible for me to do so.... i don't like any dog to suffer at the hands of rspca or pounds...

    Yes, I'm with you. I HATE having to send dogs to the pound. A Pug in a pound is a very sad sight to behold...any dog in a pound is a very sad sight to behold.

    I was once able to convince them to leave the Pug with me through duty of care. They still recorded the dog as being found and the law was still followed. Another time I simply handed the dog in and tendered for it immediately. I didnt like doing it by we are bound by legislation and I consider myself to be a responsible pet owner and an ethical rescuer.

    Being a resonsible pet owner means following the law as well as caring for your dog via desexing, exercise, love and care. That's why we chip, register and keep our dogs on leads.
