Hoping someone will have a bit of insight on this situation. We have been looking after a dog within the community on a regular basis when ever she gets off her chain for the past 10 years. Well, recently the dog got off her chain and when we seen her she was in awful condition. We took her in (I'm pretty sure she is in the end stages of cancer and very malnourished/dehyderated) and we took care of her overnight. The dog went back home the next day, although the travel was very difficult for her. She returned two days later, and has not left our house, with exception for her pee breaks which we routinely do for her. We are not keeping her against her will. She has been at our place for 5 days now, and we have sent a message to her owner as to where she is along with our phone number.
