Pup to help teach students about responsible pet ownership

LUCKY the rescued puppy will visit schools with a Fraser Coast Regional Council compliance officer to teach students about responsible pet ownership.

Compliance officer Sarah found the six, possibly eight, week-old pup, wandering in bushland at Booral.

"He was very skinny and very timid," she said.

Sarah was able to tempt Lucky out of the bush with some liver treats.

"He was very hungry and thirsty," she said.

While Lucky went to the pound in Hervey Bay, Sarah searched the missing dog register for his owners.

"When no-one came to collect him or report him missing I decided to buy him and keep him," she said.

Councillor Robert Garland said Lucky would become an ambassador for the council.

"He will occasionally accompany Sarah and other compliance officers as they visit schools to teach students about responsible pet ownership," he said.
