I know Singapore is small, but really... Maybe a location where last seen, where the owners live, a photo of the dog, something? :???:

Just ask any terrier you meet if his name is Alfie, simples. :P
Be careful what you wish for

I really wish my neighbor's terrier was named Alfie... that way, you would come and get him and I'd never have to listen to the yappy bugger again.

This is a strange post, first post in the forum, is a lost Yorkie Terrier a euphemism for something else?

I've read about how some groups coordinate to do shady things by posting seemingly-benign messages. Pets and flower arrangement are among some of the popular codes.

:P

Can you say "Eyes Wide Shut"?

That's what I was thinking! Lost Yorkie Terrier, no further details, no further posts, not the sound of a frantic dog owner looking for their dog IMO.

But yes, sounds iffy! if the OP doesn't come back and give us information it's not as though we can do anything anyway!

Or worse... This could be the mobilization command for some militant movement. I hope Gahmen doesn't come and ISA all of us for replying! :P

What? To get the latest promotion offers of the hottest brands? Free Gong Cha or iPhone cases? Or the latest Happy Meal toy? Vouchers to Bread Talk?

This is Singapore. SINGAPORE!!!

Yeah, it's more likely a Russian brothel than a militant task force mobilisation.

Ahem, OP is not even the dog's owner...

Probably s/he's just a nice friend who wants to help the dog owner(s).

That's the most likely outcome, I was just adding some fun to the otherwise sad situation.

It's kinda daft if there's no picture thought right?

The conspiracy theory is more entertaining.

So the OP hasn't come back on here with more info, what if you did find a dog called Alfie and now you can't inform them to let them know?
