How very generous of you and your DH to take him in Shirley. He looks like an older doggy (or is he just chubby?). Hopefully his guardian is as caring and desperate to have him back as you are Sable.
And Aco22 ~ couldn't agree with you more. I'm convinced the only way Ceili was identified by Animal Services and returned to me was because of her chip. (It's a long story but the short of it is, when I got "the call" they sent me to the wrong dog at the wrong shelter which necessitated alot of sobbing on my part and alot of telephoning on their part).
