Have you thought about your dog’s status within your family?
Who owns your dog?
Can you prove ownership of your dog?
If your relationship ends, who will your dog live with?
Who will be responsible for your dog after your death?
Does someone look after your dog while you go to work?
Over the past year we have been contacted by several people who have been through some very distressing experiences. ‘Spiteful’ thieves often take dogs to inflict as much pain as possible on another party. They could be ex-spouses, ex-partners or neighbours. They then dump the dog miles away from home, sell it or worse!
To avoid this happening to you:
This could be:
A registered boarding kennel
A professional dog carer
A relative, friend or neighbour
