hi we have taken in a male black and tan this evening another lady found him and could not keep him i will not be able to keep him either as i have three dogs already and that is my limit for karlin i am wondering about whether there are any places in rescue if owner is not found the dog seems healthy and in good condition and groomed but not micropchipped any advice welcom:p

Where are you.Did you pm Karlin.Jus.

There are a couple of things that *legally* you must do. You need to report him to the guards and the Cork pound but your are NOT required to take him there. Please do not take him to the pound as these dogs often end up being pts or can be hard to get back out to rescue -- some pounds will not work with rescue at all. If the pound tells you you have to take hi there, this is not true -- under law all you need to do is report him and give your contact details.

Can someone put up posters around the area where he was found? Call the local grooming parlours as one may well have him as a client? If he has a collar or something distinguishing (eg a bit of white on chest for example) then don't put that on the posters -- leave the owner to identify something distinctive or bring a picture.

Cork Animal Care may be able to help with a foster and/or home and I can help home him if they cannot do so. But you need to notify the authorities that you have him to help the owner to find him.

I am sure they will help you with the details at Cork Animal Care:

50 Cois Tobair
Co. Cork
+353 (0)21 455 1781

If after a week the owner cannot be found then I will try to help but I don't have any free fosters in your area. If you can hold him just for the legal 5 days then a rescue can step in, and this would help. Either one down there, or I will help. :)

PS you should also list him at lostandfound.ie

The CSPCA have a new state of the art dogs home at Mahon,not far from Debenhams(across from Central Statistics Office)
Phone 1550 200789
They have homed over 500 dogs this year and they try to avoid putting healthy dogs to sleep and they will work with breed rescues.(I think a large grant from Dogstrust came their way??)
I visited it a few weeks ago and was very impressed.
You don't have to surrender a dog to them, you can keep it yourself while they look for the owner.They may have details of someone looking for the cavalier on their database.It's now the first place you'd check with if your dog goes mising.

Thanks, I had just gone off to get CSPCS contact info then got into doing something else and forgot! I'd definitely ring them in the morning as I am sure they will help you go through what needs to be done and give advice.

Hi everyone Sorry for delay in getting back my internet has been crashing all day problems with the server

The guards where informed last saturday about the dog but no one has come forward as yet

i informed mahon dog pound this morning and the county warden but they have no reports of missing cavaliers

We are in midleton and i have informed the local pet shops but no one has enquired or posted and ad for a missing cav in either of the shops
The county warden has offered to collect the dog if i would like him to and he says they would probably be able to get him a new home easily
I :)have spoken to Ann in the animal care society and she is trying to get him a foster place
As i said all ready i wont be able to keep him for two long as i have three dogs already and two of them are female and have not been neutered and it seems that this dog is neither neutered of microhipped although the local vet says he seems well cared for he saw him on Monday the other lady brought him in though it seems another man has brought him in before that the ladies neighbour apparantlely and when he could not keep this lady said she would and then she aproached me because she heard from the local pet shop that i owened a black and tan and they thought it might be mine When she told me she could not keep him i offered to have him for a few days but after that i dont know what we will do my three have not eaten anything since he arrived I will keep everyone updated

Karlin just to let you know that i have sent you a pm with my phone numbers just in case you want to contant me

25th August 2009, 08:10 PM
I am from Middleton,know it well.Keep in touch with karlin.

25th August 2009, 08:31 PM
I'm less than 5 mins away from you. I have a foster at the moment but if he's homed in the short term I'll have a spot free.Homing a young B/T cavalier shouldn't be difficult:) If a spot opens for him further up I can transport.

27th August 2009, 02:58 PM
hi sins and everyone no luck tracing the owners yet i have notices up in the local pet shop no one enquiring about a lost cavalier hope there will be some good news re rescue for him soon as yet Ann in animal care cork has not gotten back to me

Hi everyone Great news the cavalier has been reunited with the owner in the last half hour Lovely lady from cork city college road

The dog went missing last thursday after escasping from the back garden it must have been stolen after that and brought to midleton i was on the cspca website this afternoon and saw the ad for the missing dog i rang the lady and she was able to tell me that the dog was not microchipped or neutered and she described some off his habits accurately when she arrived to see if it was her dog it was obvious that the dog was delighted to see both her and her daughter

i adviced her to at least get the dog microchipped and buy a collar and disc and he had neither when he escaped the garden she has assured me that she will do these things immediatly

So a happy ending for dog and owner:-p

27th August 2009, 05:19 PM
That's wonderful news.:) Poor little guy must have been thrilled to be reunited with his owners today. Well done for keeping him safe.

27th August 2009, 05:53 PM
Aaah I love a happy ending :rah:well done for your part in reuniting dog & ownerscl*p

27th August 2009, 08:09 PM
Great news :rah::rah:

27th August 2009, 08:49 PM
A very happy ending; thanks for being so central to a good resolution! :) Great job!!

I think this woman may have rung me as well last week just after he disappeared... and I told her the same thing -- if unneutered could easily have escaped in search of a female in heat. I explained a male can scent a female from two miles or more away and said without a chip she would not be able to prove ownership if they found he had been stolen. Though maybe it was someone else as she was supposed to send me a picture to post here and she never posted to lostandfound.ie.

He was very unlikely to have been stolen -- thieves either steal to order or steal to sell on or to breed and an intact unchipped male would be exactly the kind of dog they could have sold. They would not have released him. She really needs to asses the security of her garden, I think. people don't realise their dogs often can easily climb fences or dog under them or go right through thick hedges -- again esp. if a male scents a female in heat.

Hope she follows through or undoubtedly he will get out again if he has figured out an escape route.

He was very unlikely to have been stolen
It is odd that he was found wandering around Midleton.Perhaps someone took him and he escaped from their home?
To get from College road/Glasheen area he would have had to either cross the city and out by the river or negotiate the Jack Lynch Tunnel and eoither way face 10 miles of motorway(120 kjph) to get to Midleton.
It'll rest as one of those unsloved mysteries:p.

I am so pleased this was a happy ending, I have been thinking about
it all afternoon/evening!:)

27th August 2009, 09:39 PM
Oh I love a happy ending....I do hope he doesn't escape again.

That's great news:pi*no:and well done you for all the effort you put into helping this dog.

27th August 2009, 11:34 PM
Great job in helping this little "traveler" :thmbsup: -too much to hope that he remembers his escapade wasn't fun.

28th August 2009, 08:32 AM
Great news,just what we like to hear.
