some may recall his thread http://www.petforums.co.uk/dog-chat/102446-replacement.html a while back. I haven't seen him in maybe a month and was really becoming worried for the puppy. Found out some news from a friend/neighbor of his turns out he's been in hospital for 2 weeks, been very ill apparently stress induced. The puppy was given to local shelter by the man's daughter who said he just can't cope and should never have got her but now he's just far too ill to look after her. :frown: My friend works at the shelter he was handed in to and she is indeed there but already reserved and due to go to her new home soon :thumbup: she's 4 months old and apparently very adorable but is not house trained, she's destructive and basically needs training. My friend doesn't know who the new owners are as she never met them but apparently they are a lovely couple who work form home.
