    He was not reclaimed, poor man. The pound just rang a rescue colleague, and I should be collecting him today. We are just arranging a foster; I am going to check with the vet on what his heart situation is. Very likely he just needs the usual tablets for cavalier hearts as they get older.

    So he is now officially looking for his retirement home! I will consider a UK home as well, if I can arrange a homecheck and get vet references.

    I hope you find somewhere he deserves, I would love to have him but I don't think it would be fair on him with our three, plus we are out at work for some of the day......

    Just spoke to the vet who says this dog was just reclaimed by the owners! Just waiting to confirm this is the case.

    Did these same owners throw him in the canal? If they were the ones who did it I wouldn't want the poor little guy to go back to them. grrrr....

    No I am quite sure they wouldn't have bothered to reclaim; I thought initially someone might have been trying to get rid of him if it were the family. The pound would have talked to them anyway to be sure as they knew his circumstances. To reclaim costs a bit too -- you have to pay a release, a license fee, usually a microchip fee too. So if you didn't want the dog any more you'd hardly try to reclaim. I did have a home for him though! I called to get the vet report after we'd been asked to go collect him today, and was told the owners had just reclaimed, so that's a happy ending.

    I hope that he wasn't stolen by someone and then thrown in the canal, it scares me so much that so many dogs are being stolen at the moment.
