[quote=“menghsindy”]I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that you guys hadn’t already done the legwork… I’m just baffled as to how a purebred chocolate/copper husky, a coloring that does seem more distinctive and eye-catching than the usual black/white mix, could go missing without its owner noticing!
Just out of curiosity, lupillus, what are some of these lost dog websites you know of? I googled in Chinese and poked around a bit, but other than sites like www.pethouse.com.tw, pets.yam.com, the ads don’t seem to be updated frequently or they’re otherwise hard to navigate. And no, I didn’t see any missing chocolate huskies, either.
I don’t know much about finding pets through online services, but I was thinking that if that husky isn’t chipped, it makes it that much harder for online pet-searching services, like those the government provides, to locate him. So maybe its owners would try to post ads in nearby pet stores.
It’s kind of like looking for an apartment to rent… not everybody goes to Tsui Mama or e-rent.com, when the neighborhood public bulletin board still gets the most traffic.
And if all else fails… yea, there shouldn’t be any trouble finding a home for a popular breed like that.[/quote]
menghsindy, your advice is much appreciated; tomorrow I’ll go check in the neighbourhood where it was found.
