THE search is on for the owners of two family pets found astray over the weekend.
Estelle Butters, who works for Wildlife Rescue and Information Network, is looking for the owner of an Australian terrier that was found near McIvor Road in Junourton.
Mrs Butters said her doctor found the dog running between the cars and dodging traffic.
“My doctor managed to stop the traffic and get him but he couldn’t care for him so he gave him to us,” she said.
“WRIN only deal with native animals, we don’t normally do dogs but we do try and help where we can, but I have four dogs so I can only look after him for a few days.
“He is beautiful so someone has got to be missing him.
“He is about three or four at most, he is not an old dog but he is house trained.
“Obviously someone took care of him, he has been desexed.
“He has no tags or anything.
“He is absolutely adorable.
“His tail wags and he comes running up and is quite happy as long as he is getting attention.
“He is obviously someone pride and joy.
“I want to find his family.
“If it was my dog I couldn’t deal with it.”
It comes as Chloe Brennan found a rabbit in her front yard on Barnett Drive in Kangaroo Flat on Saturday.
“Yesterday morning people said they had seen a rabbit in the street and then in the afternoon we found it in our front lawn,” she said.
“We are looking after it while we are waiting for the owner to come forward.
“We knocked on all the doors in the street and no one knows where it has come from.
“It looks very well cared for.
“It is relatively friendly for a rabbit and it lets you hold it, although it is a bit freaked out.
“When we found it, it was very tired and dehydrated, who knows where it could have come from.”
