“The late colleagues found the dog in the toilet of one of the trains on Monday evening. The owner was nowhere to be found,” says an employee of Turnhout station. The toilet door would not have been locked, but it is impossible for a dog to open the closed door. The police were called in.
“It is not clear to us how long the animal had been there. After the report, we took care of the dog and immediately brought it to the animal shelter Veeweyde in Weelde,” says Rudy Remijsen of Police Region Turnhout.
The owner has not yet come forward on Tuesday. “The stafford is also not chipped, so we cannot trace the owner ourselves,” it sounds at Veeweyde. “He is a very sweet and healthy dog. We are now waiting fifteen days for the owner to come forward. If that doesn’t happen, he can be adopted.”
