Sometimes the SPA gets things wrong. Sometimes we let a dog leave when we are not convinced that the owners are the right people. Follow ups are not always possible, especially when we rely almost solely on volunteer-power. Alarm bells rang with Capucine when the cheque used to pay for her bounced. Who rips off a charity, for heaven’s sake? This warning turned to full alert when Capucine was found at a nearby refuge and the owners were uncontactable. The poor dog had been left alone in a locked car. Thanks to two volunteers Capucine is now back with us, and we are determined to find her a better home next time. I remember her well and she is a fabulous dog. Friendly and playful and good with other dogs. Fine on the lead and just the right size. We would love her to find the happiness she deserves.
