Q: Where to take a hurt dog apparently without owner in the street? (In Shanghai)

Outside my compound there is a dog who seems to be seriously hurt in one leg. Does anybody know where to take him if I go and help. I have no time to adopt him but I can't leave him there.

Too cold outside and I think he may do something stupid and be hit by a car. Anyone know about a phone or place to take him?

When you say he may do something stupid and be hit by a car are you implying the dog may try to  commit suicide?

Have we not all had our rabies shot

 

contact Doctors Beck & Stone and ask what to do. they should be able to speak English and have two locations in Shanghai. http://www.doctorsbeckandstone.com/index.php/contact I would agree not to touch it without professional advice, unless you happen to have worked a lot with dogs in a past life.

Unfortunately I don't think there's much you can do to help this dog. Since it doesn't have an owner, it's not used to people, which could be a very dangerous situation if you try to approach it. That is, if it doesn't run away. There are a lot of loose dogs out there in China. Besides, once you help the dog, what can you do? Feed it? Ignore it? You can't give it a home, and obviously no one else will. I know that it is sad to see, but don't put yourself in harm's way. As pogger said, the risk of rabies, or even just a bite, isn't worth it.

 

On a side note, many dogs that do have owners aren't getting the care they need either. I knew some people who weren't feeding their dog meat, probably because they barely ate any themselves. They claimed the dog doesn't eat, but when all you give a dog is some vegetables like pumpkin, what do you expect? They seem to think chickens are vegetarians too. Want a vegetarian pet? Get a rabbit, then you can eat it later.

Take it to a nearby restaurant. They'll know what to do with it.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
