I get feeds from various animal rescues on my FB wall and this one today really tugged my heart strings!!!
This is Jack
Jack's owner is going overseas and placed Jack with 'friends'. The 'friends' then dumped Jack at the pound on Christmas Eve after giving 24 hours notice to move him. Jack's prior owner cannot take him back as they are due to leave the country in 3 days. Can you help?
If you have ever thought about fostering now is the time. Please see the following URL for information and our application form.
If you cannot foster you can still assist by donating to these dogs. If we miss out on one then we simply move to the next one to help. We *never* ever stop assisting dogs in need and so donations are always required and appreciated. Please see the following URL to donate.
His owners will not help as they are 'going overseas". Grrr. I hope they break a leg on their trip.

I've donated a little cash.
People sh*t me to tears

Which pound did they dump him at? And it might also be worth contacting ARF, who also have a bunch of fosterers.
I'll donate some $ for the dude, he looks cute. Unfortunately no room at my inn for another.
And indeed, I hope the Universe sees fit to deal with the owners and dumpees appropriately.

I have shared on my FB, hopefully one of my Canberra friends are looking for a friend.

I've also shared on my fb, I used to live in Canberra so plenty of Canberra people are friends, including some doggy people. Hopefully they or someone they know can help. Poor Jack!
ARF is a good idea!

He's in DAS - domestic animal services. The problem is finding a spot for him. Everyone is full! Christmas is a nightmare for animals and rescuers and will only get worse over the next couple of weeks.

How can people do this? I just don't get it
He is gorgeous. Just look at that intelligent face.
I don't know how they sleep at night, I really don't.

There are quite a few working dogs at the ACT pound at the moment. Young dogs, who no doubt are high energy and in need of decent training.
Because they are working dogs, they are clever. And have no outlet for all that smarts, so they amuse themselves. What they find 'fun' is of course not so entertaining for idiots who bought a 'cute little puppy' forgetting that these dogs grow up, and need a lot of input by way of training and exercise to make great dogs.
I've had kelpies and Kelpie crosses through my classes, and it doesn't take that much effort to turn a rascal into a brilliant dog. They are easily trained - they just want to work for you (and love clicker training).
