Okay.. It's 12:40AM in my country, Malaysia. I know it's late here but I was just about to sleep when I heard a SHARP bark/yip. I thought it was Snowball but I couldn't see Snowball at the room I put her in. The door was open because I think I accidentally left it open but never mind that. I was looking for Snowball and I saw her at the window when I switched on the lights. She was barking and when she noticed me coming towards her, she ran to me and ran to the main door. I have no idea why but I opened the door and it was drizzling.
I couldn't believe what I saw... I saw 2 dogs.. quite big but not really. I think their the size of a Sheepdog puppy. I'm sorry but I couldn't stand them walking around the road and it's drizzling too.. I just opened my door and they came running in, wet. Okay.. I'm not sure if I did the right thing or not. One of the dogs was brown color and looked a lot like a Bearded Collie if I'm not mistaken. And the other dog was black with some white and gray. To my surprise, they did NOT have any collars on them. It's a little late right now so I just gave them a quick bath with water and dried them. I put Snowball and the other 2 visitors into where Snowball sleeps and put an extra blanket and also took Snowball's food bowl and filled it with water for the 2 dogs. And lastly switched off the lights, closed the door and here I am, typing this.
I'm taking 2 dogs to the vet at the morning to see if they're micro chipped. I would NOT LIKE to have other people's dogs in my home or dogs that do not belong to me but Snowball's a different thing, no collar & not micro chipped. Ok guys, I am really really sorry. I know I'm not ready for more dogs but.. I just can't stand seeing animals in conditions like that. If you're wondering where my 2 tabby cats are, they're in another room.
I don't blame you at all for wanting to get those poor dogs in out of the bad weather and somewhere safe for the night. However I would have never allowed them in contact with Snowball much less leave all three of them alone in the room together overnight. You have no idea what history this dogs have, if either of them are vaccinated or harboring an illness that could be spread to Snowball. Snowball is not fully protected yet from doggy diseases. She won't be fully protected until she has had the whole series of vaccines. Another thing is you have no idea whether these two dogs are even friendly with other dogs. They may have seemed friendly at first but you really do not know anything about their personalities and they could very easily seriously injure or kill Snowball. I think at the very least they should be kept seperated completely when they are being fed and when you are not able to watch them like a hawk. You are probably asleep right now so I hope when you wake up everything is OK. Ask the vet if he can hang on to them until their owners can be located. That would be the best solution.
Everything was OK. I took the 3 dogs to the vet in the morning and the vet said that the 2 dogs were very healthy. She checked if the 2 dogs were micro chipped and one of them was but the other wasn't. Brown dog was micro chipped. And she just said if she could check Snowball up. I told her the story and she said the same thing like what you said, scout. I was in panic at first because I didn't know but when the vet finished checking Snowball, she said everything was fine. Then, I was relieved. She took hold of the brown dog (micro chipped one) but she asked me to keep the other for a few days. The vet also said that if she finds out who the owner of the brown dog is, she'll contact me ASAP and she'll also ask the owner if the other dog belongs to the owner. I love this vet, people here are kind and sometimes they give free check ups. She told me the check up for Snowball was free because I only came to the vet recently that was when I got Snowball.
Am really sorry if I scared you of doing the wrong thing.. (Keeping the 3 dogs in the same room) The dogs were fine but one of my tabby cats weren't. That tabby cat was scratched by another cat. A quite serious injury.
