Do you recognize this dog?

NS SPCA seeking the Public's Help

Halifax, Nova Scotia, (Tuesday, November 30) – The Nova Scotia SPCA is asking for the public's help in locating the owner of a dog that was found abandoned in the woods, Saturday November 27th, 2010 on a hiking trail that runs off of the Old Sambro Road in Halifax. The dog appears to be a neutered Black Lab mix approximately 5 to 8 years old with a skin condition.

Hopefully this dog is just lost and his owners are looking for him - that would be the best case scenario - it sounds like he was found right around the corner from where I live and where I walk my own dogs all the time. And if he WAS abandoned - hopefully his "owners" will be found so that they can be prosecuted to the full extent of the law - because abandonment is of course - a crime - even with the types of animal cruelty laws we have in place in Nova Scotia currently.

  1. Joan, my guess would be that this dear old fellow was abandoned as his owners couldn't afford or be bothered about vet care.

    As they say here: "What a sin!".
