    still nothing from the woman i spoke to.. but if this is 'Nelsons' owner.. then we might have to look into adopting (legally Anne!! ) another one..
    That sounds like an excellent idea!!! What breed would you like?

    Not that I am biased or anything...but a lot of staffies out there needing a home

    i don't know about breeds.. i know very little about dogs altogether.. but you all might have guessed that already.

    probably a small to smallish dog, we tried a large one, but i just couldn't deal with a wayward large animal on my own. she was too big, poor Millie, greyhound crossed with something else very large too, cos i was told she was way too big for a girl greyhound. but she found herself in clover with a large house, a large yard, and a large rottweiler to play with, so that turned out ok for her in the end.

    a dog that won't harrass the cats..

    maybe an older one that won't need so much activity perhaps? altho this little one isn't too much, and he's very active.

    still not heard from the cat and dog home, and it's 5 now.. will have to wait till tomorrow to know now probably..

    I don't think you should secretly hope they don't find his family.

    Imagine how they'd feel if they never got him back..

    That's if he's got one, or had one, should I say.

    Look, it's very probable this dog has been abandoned, but Zen has to make sure that she exhausts every reasonable avenue in searching for an original owner before claiming him herself.

    i can imagine how i'd feel. i just didn't want him in a pound. he's too fragile. but if we have an owner to return him to, well and good. hopefully i will hear back tomorrow, about the possible owner..

    the woman i spoke to did not insist we take him in. after reading my email, and listening to me explain things, telling her how fragile this little guy is, and seeing the photos of just how he looked, she only said she would contact this possible owner and get back to me.

    i can only wait for now.

    If he doesn't have a home, they will give you priority choice to adopt him.

    You've done a good thing zen. If this little one ends up yours, then he is one lucky little dog. If he goes home to his owners, then he is still one lucky little dog and you've earned yourself some great karma.

    Everything happens for a reason. Hang in there.
