    It may be a family member who has an exploseive temper that they can not control and the pup is sadly in the firing line.

    It may be an attention seeking thing... similar to maunchausens by proxy (spelling?).

    It may be simply stupidity and poor care factor that enables the dog to injure itself.

    There could be any number of reasons as to what happens.
    No, I doubt it's Muncheousens by pet proxy, as vets are too expensive. It's cheaper to do it to kids (yeh morbid hey?)

    I am guessing a neighbour has done this and he probably couldn't pay the vet and the vet decided to re-home her rather than get blood from a stone. He probably hasn't paid the vet from the previous incident and was wracking up a huge unpayable bill.

    I didn't think Munchausens by Proxy related to dogs, but I guess it could

    No matter what...I am glad the carer/vet had the guts to tell this guy...you are NOT getting her back!!! And I guess she would have to...she has a duty of care being a Vet )

    I guess it is hard to put yourself if the "owners" shoes...with a frame of mind like his...aarrgghhhhh. He would have had to sign over Dora, because the Vet owns her on paper.
    Ah, that could make things clearer.
    So vet is the legal owner of Dora? I have seen cases where an owner couldn't afford to pay for vet bills, and agreed to sign a dog over to the vet. But perhaps in this case the vet made it very clear she/he would contact the relevant authorities to investigate, and pending investigation, lay charges.

    As I said, there could be so many possible scenarios. You will probably find as soon as you start talking to the vet in person, and at length, the answers will all fall into place for you.

    Oh well...like I said...I was brain storming!

    This hasn't put me off Dora and I will ask carer what happened. It is always easier when you sit face to face and not on a mobile phone call

    Yeah, it's frustrating. You try and think of all the different sceanrios, and sometimes it ends up being the one we didn't consider. Lol.

    Talking to the vet who is the dog's carer, I strongly believe you will get the absolute truth.

    Cleas, did you say this puppy was in the Hornsby area.

    I live in the Hornsby area and know most of the vets here and they are pretty good, they would of crossed all the T's and dotted all the i's.

    I was going to offer to look at her for you but when you mentioned that she is scared of men more than anything I didn't think a little 5ft3" lady was going to give you much feedback on her fear factor.

    As for giving her treats, I can't go past BBQ'd herb and garlic sausages. I use it in the ring and have dogs noses stuck to my pockets wherever I go.

    Lol. I'll vouch for those. They have the same effect on my boys. And the honey ones come in a close second. Lol.
