Search for owners after dog is found in Lichfield

The dog found Curborough Road in Lichfield

The dog found Curborough Road in Lichfield

Dog wardens are trying to trace the owners of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier-cross found in Lichfield.

The male dog was picked up on Curborough Road at around 4pm yesterday (January 29).

Believed to be around 18-months old, the dog was wearing a brown studded collar when wardens found him.

Anyone with information about the owners is asked to call Lichfield District Council on 01543 308725.

The pooch is just one of many dogs that are not claimed by their owners each year in Lichfield. The council displays the details of all the dogs that are found in the area on their website.

The council takes all of the lost dogs to kennels in Coven where they wait for their owners to claim them. However, if the dog is not claimed after seven days, anyone can come forward to offer it a good home. If you are interested in giving one of the dogs a home contact Sunnyside Kennels on 01902 790618.

    Another good reason for dogs to be DNA tested.

    Come on Mr Fabricant this is something worthwhile to have a go at for a change, or is your bark worse than your bite.

    “Another good reason for dogs to be DNA tested.”
    Microchipping is a perfectly good (and cheaper) alternative.

    Not if every breeder passes on the cost to the prospective new owners of puppies,
    and the new owners pay a registration fee to their authority.

    If it is worth having a dog, it is worth paying the extra to have it DNA tested.

    Micro-chipping would do nothing to trace down dirty dog owners.

    If it’s worth paying the extra to have DNA testing, surely your point about passing the cost of microchipping down is irrelevant? And this isn’t about ‘dirty dog owners’, it’s about finding the owners of lost dogs, which microchipping is perfect for.
