Did you lose your dog in ZH?

Hey folks,

found a nice older gentleman? waiting for me in the stairwell of my dog-free appt. Large, curly hair tan and black. After waiting half an hour for someone to come and claim him, called the cops and he's on his way to the pound.

So if you lost your dog of the above description, call the police at 117.

All the best,
Lorraine

Thank you Lorraine for having taken the senior canine gentleman under your wing. He should be micro-chipped, which will enable him to be reunited with his owner pretty quickly.

Yes, he has a chip, but the Polizei were unable to reach the owner. They tried calling the phone number listed, but it were unable to connect. Hence, the shot in the dark forum message.

I hope he finds his people. Such a sweetie.

Re: Did you lose your dog in ZH?

I hope he finds his owners and this story has a happy end. Looking for a lost dog is not a pleasant experience...

And that is why mine, besides being chipped, has also a nametag with two phone numbers.

For future information:

Tips on How to Report a Lost or Found pet.

I entered a dog I found on the street about an year ago in the site and it was rather quickly updated. Have met people with happy stories about finding their cats in the site.

Re: Did you lose your dog in ZH?

Lfitz, did you, or did the police, report the dog to the cantonal Meldestelle?

The police and Tierheim should know that this is required, but my experience has been that things sometimes fall through the cracks. If the policeman you spoke with left contact details, you might check this with him.

One reason this is important is that the dog might not be local - sometimes dogs wander far from home, or are taken and dumped many miles away from their homes. The owners might be searching locally but not think to look farther afield. The two websites to report found animals, given in the link in Helm's post, are the easiest way to reach the broadest audience.

(That the phone number given on the chip entry doesn't connect worries me...)

Hopefully the dog will be reunited with his owners.


ETA:

Also, do you know which Tierheim the dog was taken to?


This should be a warning to all dog owners, though. Check your ANIS entry regularly to make sure that your contact info is up to date, and that the number given is where you can be reached 24/7!

Re: Did you lose your dog in ZH?

Am I the only one who is a bit suspicious of a dog left in a stairwell?


Someone had to bring him inside unless the door was left open and the dog wandered in from outside......
