    It turned out they weren't the same dog.

    Ok, im gonna be the bearer of bad news, but its very, very unlikely you will get your dog back.

    Oh, just went back and re-read it, in one post he said it was his dog, but must have meant the photo was his dog.

    I did rung them, but in the end, what I was going against was time. The family dog was missing two weeks before my brother told me about it. He had poor English and did not report it. By the time he told me it was too late.

    There is no way to identify a dog if all it has is a collar, and if no one calls and say its missing, then there is nothing they can do.
    As far as we have been told, snowy only called the council. He didn't call his vet or shelter/pound, so that wouldn't have helped.

    You are right, Greys, if my brother had microchipped Lucky and things had been done properly, he would have returned to us with no trouble. It is a hard lesson to learn from. And I'm sad that he has not made calls as soon as he was missing to find him. Another picture of our dog - please contact me if you have any info on him.

    I found an ad in Thornlie's community paper which a kind soul has advertised that they found a dog in the area. Contacted them and they said he has been taken to a vet. Rang the vet and he has since been taken to the animal pound. Found out from the pound that he has been rehomed. They said I wouldn't be able to have him back. Does anyone know if one can get their pet back once that happens?

    Getting your dog back would probably be difficult. I think that the new owners would have to agree. There was a similar case in the USA recently and it became a bit of a news story. The adopting owners finally relented and gave the dog back. Same thing though, the original owner was slow in looking for his dog.

    If one of my dogs went missing I would be in a total flap and would leave no stone unturned, that is for sure. There was a rather sad case here when someones pet poodle with a medical condition went missing. They had massive photo posters made up with $1000 reward offered and posted these posters on every main road within 50 km of where the dog went missing. I drive by those posters and feel so sorry for the owners.
