A BETTER DEAL HOMEWARD BOUND – Rove prepares for the 250km journey back to Barham (NSW) from Bacchus Marsh council pound, with owner Lauren and son George. Photos – Helen Tatchell
Meg Kennedy & Helen Tatchell

A 6-year old male golden retriever and


his human family have been apart since
23 January, and were last week reunited
some 250 kilometres from home.
Originally lost from Barham in NSW,
Rove was found at Bolwarrah, 15km
from Ballan and reunited with his
owners at the Moorabool Shire Council
Pound on Wednesday morning.
Lauren and Lachy Mathers were easy to
locate.
As fate has it, Lauren and her husband,
with 3-year old son George, just
happened to be in Melbourne on Tuesday
afternoon when they got the call.
Rove and his mate Ralph, a Maremma
sheep dog, both wandered off in Barham
with Lauren searching high and low
ever since, even taking to social media
In an emotional and tearful reunion
at the council pound, Rove’s tail never
stopped wagging.
“If you find a dog, take it to the local
pound or vet,” said owner Lauren.
Rove was handed into the Ballan police
station by a Bolwarrah resident where
he was then taken to the vet to treat
head and neck wounds and was put on
medication.
It appeared over the last 6-weeks Rove
suffering deep cuts to his head and
throat.
Ralph is still missing with unconfirmed
sightings in the Koondrook area.
Microchipping for dogs and cats is a
state government requirement, and dogs
and cats over the age of three in the
Moorabool Shire must be microchipped
and registered.

reunion, visit the Moorabool News
Thanks to Rove’s microchip, his owners in a vain hope of finding their dogs. had been attacked by another animal, website or Facebook page.
