Hi - I live in an one bed cottage in the city centre. Two weeks ago late on a Friday night a dog showed up at my front door whining. She had a collar with no tag and wouldn't leave. She's a lovely dog - not sure the breed seems to be a corgi terrier or something...like a corgi with longer legs - she's very affectionate, docile and house trained.
We brought her up to Ashtown Dog Pound the next day and I asked to be called if no-one picked her up in five days. The guy said that they don't put dogs down anymore there, but that if we thought we might want to keep here we would be better off bringing her home as she would might catch a disease or something in the pound.
Much as we'd love to keep her, we live in a small two-room house with a tiny yard and we are gone for up to 10 hours on weekdays. So we're going to try and get her re-homed.
Any ideas on how we should do this? We both work during the week and we are out all day tommorrow (Sat) Can I trust the guy in Ashtown that she will be re-housed if I leave her there on Sun?
Otherwise how do I get her to a shelter? As I say, Sunday is the only day we are free until tommorrow week....
