Lousa Puppy Exchange

I'm told by a reliable source that there's a puppy 'mart' (for want of a better phrase) each Saturday in Lousa. People take their unwanted dogs & puppies to a square in Lousa for others to take.

Has anyone any experience of this? I have a 3-4 month old stray that needs a new home. He's adorable, but can't stay with us.

I would put up a photo, but can't find out how to do that here. If you'd like to see him, there's an ad for him in the classifieds. Small, black & white puppy.

Any tips? Thanks

auntyems, I believe you are refering to a Lousa camara run dog adoption idea. Yes it is in Lousa, it used to be every month on a Saturday morning, last week though it was somewhere else, and it has moved around since the back-end of 2012.

My understanding is that these are dogs that will be put down if they are not adopted on the day, all are strays collected by the camara.

I don't think they will take unwanted dogs.

Ah, I see. A council initiative rather than individuals trying to find homes for their unwanted dogs. One to miss I think.
