Although most people would love to bring their pets with them on holiday, sometimes it is better to ask a friend or family member to look after them.

A woman offered to look after her neighbour’s dog for a couple of weeks while she went away, but she has now had the pet for more than six weeks. She reached out to the owner but her calls and messages are being ignored. She posted in an online forum asking for advice and one person wrote: “Send her a message saying if she doesn’t contact you about the dog in the next 24h you will be handing it to the pound as abandoned.” But the woman can’t bring herself to give the dog away “I’ve fallen in love with the dog and could never send him to a shelter. If it comes down to it I will keep him, however, I am just extremely confused.”
