    You've not seen an 'unhealthy homeless dog'? Melbourne has certainly changed since I lived there, then! Half-starved bitsers rooting around in rubbish tips, too cunning to be caught by the dogcatcher, not quite cunning enough to keep themselves properly fed. So damn sad. I suppose in these days of covered tips, it would not be so likely.

    And here in the bush, it is not uncommon to come across bodies of dogs that have been dumped on a bush track off-highway and left to fend for themselves, they usually starve to death. People just plain suck sometimes.

    Paulg, I have a friend who has four spoodles or groodles (I forget which). The first one was, I think, an impulse buy, but the next three were properly sourced from a breeder that she considers responsible. I cannot personally vouch for that breeder, I do not know her, but I can put you in contact with my friend if you like and she can give you details.
    It will be good for you to talk in detail with someone who has four of these mixes, she can tell you of the countless hours she spends bathing and clipping them (she had to buy clippers and learn to use them if she wanted enough of her wage left to eat LOL). All four have different temperaments, but she has trained them all to be polite, respectful dogs and two of them are in the Delta programme and visit hospitals in her local area. She has truly done wonders with them.
    She is in South Western Victoria, but I have no idea where her breeder is.
    Here is a snap of her four:

    I think Bernie might have meant - dogs that are owned by homeless people.

    I know of about 6 or so that live with people who have thier own car and sleep in the parklands. The dogs seem healthy enough but they're in trouble if the police make off with the the homeless owner - which happens sometimes. Especially if Mr homeless fails to mention he's left the dogs in the not quite secure car.
