My dad's sable Pembroke went missing on Thursday. He found the dogs collar laying in his yard, so he is unsure if Thumper got out and got free of his collar or what. He was last seen in Oyster Creek, a small town in Brazoria County. He is microchipped and current on all his vaccinations.
My dad is heartbroken over it. If he can't get Thumper back, he wants to find a home for his remaining two dogs since Thumper is so close to him :( I have a flyer that I am going to take to the local vets, pet supply stores, and the SPCA this week.
He is my Pippa's brother, and was supposed to be our dog, but my dad connected with him instantly and I didn't have the heart to bring him home after that. Please pass the word around and help bring Thumper home!
Aren't there any laws in Texas about the length of a stray period? Here it's 7 days before we can do anything intrusive or adopt the animal out. It simply isn't legally ours until then. Can anyone call themselves a shelter and claim ownership of a dog that they find? Someone tried that in WI, had the county contract so the sheriff kept bringing her strays, but she kept the animals for breeding or sale. She was prosecuted and convicted as a puppy mill operator among other things. Other legit shelters had to pick up the poor animals. So how can TX allow the SPCA to do the same sort of thing?
Good thing they only had that poor corgi for three days if it managed to get sick so quickly.
