Thread: Found.. Cattle Dog Puppy

    I thought I'd go to the vet first, as the pound is quite a way away. That way I'll know whether it has an owner and the pound won't be necessary.. that would be the ideal scenario.
    If there's no chip I'll take her to the pound and contact a local rescue bunch I know to let them know she's there, so they can keep an eye on her.
    I would love to keep her, or even foster her, but it just isn't possible at the moment... so hard. She's lying here asleep at my feet.....

    In SA and some other states, the pound won't take her unless you've talked to the council first, so it might pay to phone and check with them before you show up with puppy. But hopefully, as you say, you won't need to.

    Fingers crossed.

    I'll definitely phone first! I'll let you know the outcome.

    Thanks, everyone. I took her to the vet this morning.. no chip. Had her wormed and decided really the only way around it was the pound as someone may own her, although dumping does look very likely.

    Unfortunately once you surrender them they don't tell you what has happened, but I can check their website, and I know who takes the dogs for re-homing from that particular pound, so I'll keep an eye on her. I really don't mind giving up dogs when I foster them as I know exactly where they're going. Giving them up to an institution, and particularly a puppy, is a new one for me and I did feel a bit weepy.

    I wish everyone everywhere was educated on the responsibility and care we owe to our companion animals. I know everyone here is. I've really appreciated your support.

    Agree with Pugger. Puppies usually get adopted quite quickly from the pound. You did the right thing and kudos to you for caring.

    I know it's the right thing.. thank you for reinforcing it.
    It's just I really like to see puppies grow up in a home, especially in those important formative months.

    Thanks, Shedeivl. I kept an eye on her (her photo was on the pound site) and then found out she'd been taken by a rescue org, so all is well. I was ready to go and get her should the worst look like occuring, but it didn't.
