ABBA and Gavenny, named af­ter the Welsh towns loved by their owner, are 10-year-old Moo­dles. Their de­voted owner has now moved into pal­lia­tive care. This brother and sis­ter duo are great mates.They are house trained and know ba­sic obe­di­ence com­mands. This pair are in­side dogs that like to sleep next to your bed. Best suited to a fam­ily with­out small chil­dren.

We have had some fierce storms these few past weeks and we have had calls for many lost pets. Of­ten times a good Sa­mar­i­tan finds the pet and there is no iden­ti­fy­ing tags on the an­i­mal. Make sure your pets de­tails are up to date on their mi­cro-chips and that name and coun­cil regis­tra­tion tags are al­ways on and up to date .If you are at work and have a storm ner­vous pet, give a key to a fam­ily friend or neigh­bour to put them in­side with the ra­dio. Also look at Thun­der Shirts an­other help­ful prod­uct in anx­i­ety dogs. Pre­ven­tion is the key.

If you find a pet take it to a vet if you can to scan for a chip. If you are un­able to get to the vet in the first in­stance take a photo, then in both cases post it on Sun­shine Coast Lost Pet Regis­ter on Face­book. Many dogs are re­turned to the owner by this page. Also make sure the per­son col­lect­ing the dog has proof of own­er­ship. If we work as a com­mu­nity dogs can get home safely and quickly with­out too much dis­tress.
