My girlfriend has brought home a male beagle that one of her friends found in Xinzhuang (Sinjhuang, Hsinchuang or however you like to spell it) in Taibei County about three weeks ago. The exact location was between Danfeng Elementary School and the place where they are building the terminal MRT station, next to what is left of the Losheng Sanatorium. The friend took the dog to check for a chip (none as usual ) but he can’t keep it.
The dog has a black body, white tummy, legs, muzzle and tail, and tan head, ears and haunches. There are a couple of small patches of white fur on its neck. There is a small bald patch about the size of a NT$5 coin in the middle of its back - could be a scar. The friend said the dog smelt very nice when he found it, so it had probably only just been lost (or abandoned, but I doubt it.) The dog is very friendly. It is used to climbing stairs and being walked on a lead, and its claws are well worn, suggesting its original owner gave it plenty of exercise.
Anyway, I have seven dogs already. They are all bitches, one of them is on her first heat right now (I’ll have her spayed when the heat is over so she doesn’t lose too much blood) and one is an unspayed bitch puppy. So I really don’t want to keep this doggy, sweet as it is. I would like to trace the original owner if possible. Please, people who live and work in Xinzhuang, look out for lost-dog notices and let me know if you see any for male beagles! Also, if anyone wants to foster or adopt him, we can talk about it. I will give priority to people living in or around Xinzhuang.
