Dog finds a new home!

On the 2nd May I found a little lost Bichon Frise at Wellesley Woodlands and so many of you shared and liked his post, that I’ve done a bit of phoning round to find out how he’s getting on so we can have a happy ending to his story!

I contact Rushmoor Borough Council, who came out straight away with a microchip scanner to see if we could find out where he’d come from and this is where the puzzle started!  His contact details led back to a home in Liverpool and after phoning the number, it turns out he was rehomed over 2 years ago, but the microchip was never updated.

Rushmoor Borough Council then took him in to hold him for 7 days to see if an owner would come forward, but unfortunately nobody did, so he was taken to a dog home for rehoming.  He already has a new home with a family who fell in love with him straight away.  (I’m not surprised, he was very sweet).

It’s great to hear he’s safe and loved now, but please use this as a reminder to keep your dogs contact details up to date on their collars and microchips!

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
