    Can I make a suggestion? Even though this is the internet, things are permanent... DELETE THIS THREAD IMMEDIATELY! {Google cache can be a person's worst enemy}

    You have identified the dogs in question with photos... yes, puppies change as they age... (edit)

    {But that's not to say I wouldn't act in an identical manner should I happen to find myself in your shoes}

    It is disgusting that you feel you know best (edit).

    Perhaps it would Be nicer and more legal to mail then reaponsible dog owbership pamphlets and suggest they at least get them chipped. Councils have free chipping days (but probably wouldn't work for these restricted breeds.

    Hopefully they will keep them in so nothing happens to them

    Based on your post, You seem quite affectes by this thread.

    Have you been in their shoes before? Has someone made the wrong assumption about you and your dogs?

    Tahlz....Its great you took the time to help these poor pups out before the pound or a car got them...well done.. (edit), it appears they are not responsible for their dogs wellbeing.

    Actually i hope you do find them out again... Somes times a girl just has to do what a girl has to do!

    Belinda; I didn't get their names sadly but I did hear from the bigger one and he's not as happy as he should be =/.

    Pinkest; I don't think I can delete this thread though, thats the problem

    Thanks cava. I was thinking the same thing. I love the Pitbull breed, I truly do. I would LOVE to own one but I wont because I know there chances of one being taken away. These are not one, but two Pitbulls that keep getting out, they have a THIRD that also keep getting out though I'm not sure on the breed. If these dogs continue to get out, what do you think will happen to them? If they aren't claimed, bye bye doggies. It doesn't seem the owners care enough to do a full out search. These type of owners don't seem to be the type to keep a dog till they are old and aged. I'd prefer to see a dog in a home where you know they wont be killed because the owner can't contain their dogs.

    Anyway, I guess I'll wait and see what the future holds. I just hope they remain in their yard and safe because to bad if the wrong person finds them next time.

    The owners have been very lucky this far, someone could easily steal these two dogs for fighting... It is a shame, but there are a lot of bad eggs out there!!

    I could delete the thread, but I think deleting the photos might be enough.

    I know they look like a particular breed - but given their history - it's really unlikely they are actually pure bred examples of that breed. They could be mastiff x boxer or multigeneration bitsas for all we know.

    I think the easiest legal way to get these dogs a new home would be to report them to council. Council could require they do the right thing by the dogs as far as securing them, microchipping them and registering them.

    Unless you're in Victoria - in which case if the dogs are loose again, rehoming (interstate) would be the best option - given they're not registered or chipped - there's no proof anyone owns them. I wouldn't go on the propety to kidnap them.

    And I might edit a few posts that suggest this cos we can't promote or encourage illegal activity here - no matter how well meaning.

    I have been in situations where i have not been able to afford things for my dog.
    I have been in the situation where a dog has escaped.
    I have been in the situation where i leave a dog ALL DAY LONG
    I have been in the situation where i did not microchip my dog for 8 months with good reason

    I am not a bad dog owner.

    You seem to have a reaction that is out of proportion to what you saw. And a need to steal a dog from someone. Your heart is ruling your head clearly.
