i have just spoken with a guy who thinks this could be his dog. some things sound right, and some don't. for instance, he thought the dog was supposed to be already chipped when he got him from someone else, and yet the vet we saw could not find a chip.
i can understand why the photo might not look like his dog, and he has not seen his dog for over two months anyway, as he had to work in Melbourne and left both his dogs with his partner, who left the gate open 10 days ago and lost both dogs, altho one came home after a few hours. his partner works two jobs, and isn't even home much to take care of the dogs, so i am wondering if half of the hair matting was already done before he was lost.. but that's another thing altogether. i think this dog has been lost for more than 10 days, as some at my husband's place of work said they thought they had seen this dog around for some weeks.
Nelson does not respond to the name Champ at all. not even an ear twitch.
this guy said: 'you know how you take the dog for granted, and then you're stumped to remember what it looks like after a while away' umm. no. i don't know that at all.
however.. i shall speak to this partner tomorrow afternoon, and we can arrange some way to meet up, and he can tell if it is their lost dog or not.
it won't be easy, my husband is way too busy at work this week to take time out, and could not have the little dog at work with him anyway. i'm up here and the partner is in Stanmore, with two jobs. maybe we can meet in the middle.
