The collar was not damaged in any way to indicate that tags had been pulled of - but they may have been on a seperate ring on the leash connector thingy and got ripped off when he squeezed through the 6 inch gap in the owners fence, or pulled off when the tradie tried to grab the dog - again conjecture either way.
    3) Was he microchipped - no micro chip showed up when scanned. Vets scanner sits on a docking station so the battery can not go flat. No conjecture here. You can have a dog chipped for $10 by council in this shire - ah! but then you have to have the dog registered.

    Just had a call from the vet to say the owners have called them and will pick the old boy up this evening. He had a broken foot and various other contusions so maybe hit by a car - if that was so then the driver did not stop.

    Hmmmm! maybe I should start a thread "Irresponsible Drivers".

    Nve, when you get to point 3, originally stated in your post as:
    "Vet and could not find a microchip" which you claim contains no conjecture. I disagree, you have assumed this means no microchip. Perhaps erroneously?, but with this added information:
    "Vets scanner sits on a docking station so the battery can not go flat" it seems far less likely of a microchip being in situ.

    Im lovin that the dog is being returned to his owners relatively intact, considering what could of happened.
    And if my dog gets run over, id like a Nev on hand to help him out any day.

    Agreed!

    Nev, hope you have some good doggie karma coming your way.

It's $10 at petbarn to get a name tag and they engrave it on the spot, I can never understand why every dog owner doesn't have one for their dog! I was getting Molly a tag at petbarn when we got her and there was a man waiting who was getting one done for every one of his 40 head of cattle!

    Glad to hear he made his way home. Both of my dogs always wear their collars with ID and council tags on them. They are also microchipped. The only time I take their collars off is for a bath or when I am home on the weekend.

    Love it. Reminds me of the time my son asked me why all the cows had price tags in their ears.

    Thanks for all the pats guys but that is something I will always do. If I see a stray I will stop and if I can, put it in the car and take it to the nearest place of safety. It's just who I am.

    They must sense it in you Nev, because anytime I have ever stopped to help a stray, they immediately bolt in the opposite direction. I usually just do my best to herd them away from main roads and danger if I can!

    After my dog managed to hang herself by the collar on the picket gate - I don't like to leave a collar on her at home. She always wears a collar and tags when we're out. She sometimes wears one at home, so I can grab her if she's doing something I dont want her to do, like barking at the saucepans (she reckons she has pre-rinse rights).

    Im the same D, last week I saw a little Cavie cross on a really busy road, I really freaked out because they no road sense, stopped the car and tried to catch it.
    It always terrifies me as im frightened i will scare it into the path of a car.

    I couldnt catch it, but did manage to get it off the road, I search for awhile as it had gone into bushland but couldnt find it.

    I probably wouldn't leave them on, but with Bella's history of escaping while I am gone I feel better with them wearing them, it has saved her a few times having her ID tag on her.

    I had to think of this post this morning when I took a wandering dog home. I saw her at the school when I dropped my daughter off (we were very late, so there was no one else out the front). Beautiful black shepherd mix. She nearly got hit by a car when this d!ckhead 4WD driver did not slow down when the dog slowly crossed the road on the school pedestrian crossing. Big black dog on a white zebra crossing!!! Could've been a child! Then I saw her at the shops and checked her tag and asked someone at the cafe to use their phone. The owner was at work, so I clipped Banjo's lead on the dog and took her home. 2 minutes after we got home, the owner's daughter in law was on my doorstep to pick her up. Apparently the dog is really sneaky and jumps over the fence when they turn their backs for a moment. She looked well cared for and was well trained.

    She probably would've just wandered back home by herself after a while, but apart from the traffic danger I was worried that one of the shop owners would call the pound. Though I do think they are all dog lovers and she was such a nice and calm dog that I doubt anyone would've felt bothered by her hanging around, but still...
