View Full Version : FOUND - Blenheim Male approx 1 1/2 years old. Dubin
12th October 2010, 03:06 PM
I hope this is ok to post here. Yesterday I spotted a Blenheim male in my area several times(long story... he kept following my cav! ) I finally could not let it go any more when I saw him criss crossing his way around a busy crossroads in Dublin 8. For those of you who know the area he was crossing the busy intersection at Leonards Corner several times. I initially thought he was a neighbour’s dog however when I brought him up to her house, she said their dog was no longer with them.
I brought him to my vet to see if he has been micro chipped ... but both of my Vets scanners are broken. I will try another surgery this evening. I have also alerted the Gardaí in Kevin St and Harcourt Terrace, Ashtown Pound and the DSPCA.
This guy is a beauty and definitely a family pet, his coat is immaculate - I can still smell the groomers shampoo from him! He also turned his nose up at my dry food this am. He is very bubbly and giddy and extremely frisky!
If you know of anybody who has lost a beautiful Blenheim, can you let me know immediately? We are more than delighted to hold onto him until his owners turn up.

I'd ask for some proof if you get a call from a purported owner -- eg a picture of the dog. Lots of bad types would like to get hold of a dog they might breed.
If you cannot find the owner after a week he can be rehomed. I am happy to do this or at the very least arrange discounted neuter and chip. I hope he is chipped but you may well find he is chipped with no owner details -- as breeders have to chip but often don't register and typically don't transfer ownership details. :x
Just PM me if you wish to discuss this by phone or find you want to get him rehomed. Legally you need to hold him 5 days but of course you can hang on to him a bit longer in hopes that the family show up. I would not give him to the DSPCA.

There's a post on facebook that a young male Blenheim had gone missing from Donaghmeade area...link is on Regina Hamilton facebook...maybe contact her or send me a pmwith your contactdetails & I'll pass them on, maybe the same dog :)

Probably unlikely to have gotten so far as Donaghmede to Leonards Corner, but always a possibility. Still be sure to ask for a picture or other proof of ownership. :thmbsup:

Thanks Zoe and Karlin,
I was thinking the exact same thing re dodgy breeders, hence my very lame description!
I hope it is her dog, he is really too cute. Somebody must be missing him badly.:( This ladys FB page is private so I will FB so I will pm you with my details.
I will keep you posted.

This is the second time I have found a dog with no id tag, contact number or chip. The last dog stayed with us for a weekend while her owner went out of her mind with worry, the owners 7 series BMW had been stolen with her miniture Yorkie in the back seat! The thieves obviously kept the car and got rid of the little dog:mad: This little yorkie manged to make it from St James's Hospital to Griffith College overnight.
We eventually reunited him with his owner via The Gerry Ryan show!
Hopefully this guy will have a chip, I will let you know. I have also sent Zoe a pm with my details.

I was thinking maybe he was stolen & dumped, wouldn't be the first time or last time! I've forwarded your details Orla so hopefully something will come of it :)

Oh my God, what a horrible experience for the owner -- same thing happened to a friend's parents in Belfast; they'd just parked the car in the drive to bring in shopping and dogs were in the back (three springers) and thieves stole the car -- but they dumped the dogs as well.
Yes stolen and dumped is always a possibility.
I am setting up a new lost and found forum so that people can more easily list dogs that fit that definition. :)

I agree it's awful the yorkie was stolen & dumped but excuse me - a BMW but couldn't spare the money to chip their dog :mad:

Yes so true! But people always think it isn;t an issue. Then don;t even put a collar and tags, as they are LEGALLY required to do, on their dogs either... :(
I also think irish vets charge *ridiculous* prices for chipping -- on average around €45 in Dublin! Chips cost just a few euro. Why vets cannot chip for €10 is beyond me.

Apologies for not being on line yesterday. I had to visit my parents and their web access is down at the moment. The dogs had a great time, my parents live beside Lough Ree so plenty of fun was had all around.
The woman from Donaghmede never contacted me. I do however have great news, a lady from Crumlin contacted me this morning and described the dog perfectly, she has also had the issue up on her face book profile and was able to show me a photo of Charlie. Apparently he was one of the dogs, which was documented in last years puppy farm TV programme. The dogs name is Charlie and her little boy aged four let him out of the house on Monday:( , her poor little boy has been distraught. After getting the ring around from one very strange lady who claimed to have found him Nicola, the owner came down to my house this am to collect him - fantastic excitement all around:jmp:.
Of course I asked her to put a contact number on his collar and get him chipped.
Thanks for all your help guys. I don't know how I would cope if it happened to Maggie. This really is a fantastic service you provide.

Oh that's fantastic that he has been reunited with his family :D
Well done you for keeping him safe and managing to get him back home
14th October 2010, 12:35 PM
Glad he's sorted :o
14th October 2010, 02:03 PM
Glad to hear this wee got got sorted. Well done for keeping him safe for the few days cl*p
14th October 2010, 03:15 PM
Glad he's gone home - fingers crossed he'll be getting a chip soon eh?

GREAT job Órla! That will be one happy family, and also so important to have mentioned a chip and tags. Can I put you in charge of southside Cavalier Rescue? :lol:
14th October 2010, 10:01 PM
Whew! Good news and good job Orla! You go girl!
14th October 2010, 10:23 PM
Glad he is safely home.
There is always a bed in our house for a dog that needs it:).
Thanks for all your support.
