Yoshi the lost retriever + animal welfare

He was a sorry sight when we saw him, walking aimlessly along Pasir Ris Park, with a worn collar hanging on his neck, looking rather scruffy and worse for wear. He had no dog tag.

The owner was nowhere to be found.

We followed him to the beach, and saw him picking up dead washed up fish from the sand and gobbling it down. Then he went for a swim in the sea.

He was definitely a vagrant dog. But where was his owner? Passers-by ignored him and Muslim families shunned him. It was a matter of time before someone called the AVA to take him away.
