This boy was found in Donnybrook village yesterday being pushed into the traffic by an angry man. He was trying to play with said man’s dog.
I can’t describe to you how sweet, gentle and obedient he is. There’s no doubt about it – he must be someone’s pet.
The vet says he’s around 2, and he isn’t microchipped. He looks like a sheep dog with short legs, so he may be a spaniel cross.
He has a distinctive rust-coloured patch on his back, and a makeshift, battered black collar, which belonged to a bigger dog before him.
He’s quite thin, so may have been on the run for a few days from somewhere further away.
We did a knock around to nearby houses and businesses yesterday, but no one knows anything about him.
Sadly we can’t keep him after today because of allergies, but wanted to give it one last shot to find his owner. Someone somewhere is probably crying over him.
The local Gardaí and vets, the DSPCA and the pound have been told. They have contact details, or you can find me on Twitter @lucymoylan.
