    for those of you who missed it, a friend of mine asked me to step in as a friend of a friend was at the end of his tether with his husky and wanted shot of him.

    I spoke to the owner last Sunday and we agreed that they would bring him down to meet my dogs, today, and, depending how well that went, he would come and live with us.

    So I texted him yesterday to confirm that we're still on, no answer. I tried to call this morning, no answer. I'm hoping that he has changed his mind and is going to get a trainer in to help, so Shadow can stay with his family. But until then, no updates really :(

    Sorry to hear you can't get in touch, there is nothing worse than not knowing.

    Oh dear, I hope he hasn't already rehomed him to any old bod :( Can you ask your friend if they know anything?

    I popped him a text to see if he can find out what's going on. So waiting, waiting, waiting

    Hopefully you hear something soon, as you have been kind enough to step in to help it would be very ill mannered not to keep you informed.
    Have you looked on pre-loved, gumtree, pets4homes etc. to see if you can find Shadow being advertised?

    Can't find anything, but there seems to be loads of people now crossing Huskies with boerboels. WTF!

    Just hope he hasn't found someone else and passed him on to them. If he is a friend of a friend, have you perhaps tried them too see if they can get hold of him or know anything?

    I hope they can get hold of him and you can find out whats going on. He could a least have the decency to contact you back and tell you whats happening.

    Who in the hell thinks that`s a good idea!! Hopefully there will be a good reason why Shadows owner has not been in touch with you and it will be sorted soon, keeping fingers crossed anyway!

    I hope it’s just flat battery or too busy to reply...it’d suck balls if Shadow got palmed off onto a random person because they couldn’t be bothered to wait :( Keeping my fingers crossed!

    I also checked Battersea, but I think they have to keep them for 7 days before they can put his picture up

    Just caught up with this...

    I know its hard, well it must be hard to rehome any dog if you are a responsible and loving owner and you may get cold feet, however a reply would be nice..

    Hope you hear an update soon..and it is cold feet rather than any old tom, dick or harry has shadow.
