15/05/14 UPDATE: We have had no luck in locating Thor's family. However, it is still a happy ending for Thor as he has been adopted by his foster carer who loves him to bits
But then I saw a dog standing in the middle of the road, looking rather confused and lost,as I was on my way home from the vet with my Cleo and Brownie this afternoon. And I knew immediately that it had to be the same dog that Nicole had told me about.
So I raced home to drop them off, picked Nicole Lee and Elton up, and drove out again to find him. It was raining and we were worried that the poor boy would be even more frightened than he already is.
Thankfully, we managed to find Thor after about 20 minutes of driving around, whimpering in the rain. He ran for his life when we approached him, but when he realised that we were just trying to help he came up to us, albeit, cautiously.
After bribing him with a can of Cesar dog food, he decided that we were his best buddies, jumped into the car quite happily.
We have already taken him to the vet for a check up. He's healthy except for a minor skin problem (probably from the stress of being on the streets on his own). The vet thinks he's about 10-12 months old only... so he's still a puppy.
Please call us at 016 322 8816 or 012790 1252 if this is your dog. If he isn't please share this post so that we can reunite him with his family.
