    Fingers crossed that you can take him home next week This must be so hard for you right now.... But you are doing the right thing! And after the 7 days he will be forever yours which is the most important bit!

    i just keep on trying to not think of what his living conditions are right now. and with xmas day and boxing day right on the 7 day mark, and still with a neutering etc to go after that, it will be a little longer than 7 days.. but. we can do nothing else.

    SCDH isn't too bad.... it certainly isn't as bad as some of the larger pounds such as blacktown.

    If you get really stressed, I know one of the Vets at SCDH. She has oeprated on a rescue Pug of mine when she was with the RSPCA and she is really lovely and supportive. She might be able to check in on her and assure you of her welfare. her name is Chris Cole.

    Phoning once a day should be enough. I'd go for a quiet time before knockoff when ever that is.

    What happened to the bloke that thought Nelson might have been his dog?

    What happened to the Sydney council pound - I thought it was the Sutherland shire one, based on their website and a few others. I suppose SCDH counts as an authorised/designated place.

    It's strange if this was a lost child we were talking about, there would be no question about giving it up to the authorities no matter how nice a home you might be able to give it. Trouble is, takes a while for the authorities to know that you're an appropriate person. Then again, they're a lot more careful at checking out foster homes for kids than they are homes they return strays to or rehome abandoned dogs to.

    Best of luck, Zen, I'm hoping that Nelson ends up in the best possible situation! I kind of know how you feel, after we'd adopted Molly, she had to stay an extra couple of days to be desexed, I kept calling to check up on her. Just know either way, he'll have a home!

    We found Lady running along a road.
    We took her to the shelter and had to wait 3 weeks before being given the chance to adopt her.

    had an update.. he's fine of course, he is taken for walks 2-3 times a day, fed well, and i have been assured that those other guys are definitely not his owner... all is on track for us to adopt him when it's time..
