We love it when a dog arrives identified. However sometimes things are not what they seem. This border husky cross is 12 years old (date of birth November 2004) and according to the central database is a yorkshire terrier. Sometimes this is the result of an error inputting the chip number at the vets, but on this occasion we know otherwise. Gandalf’s former owner is fairly notorious at the SPA for the number of dogs identified in her name. She is an illegal breeder of border collies, huskies and yorkshire terriers (or any other breeds that are fashionable and can make money). So this poor dog has been the result of a mix up and has presumably sired many more puppies. So even though arriving at the SPA at his age is not nice, we are happy for him! What would be even better would be a new home, of course!
