Appeal to trace owners of dog found in Burntwood

Wardens are appealing for help to trace the owners of a dog found in Burntwood.

The female Collie-German Shepherd crossbreed was picked up at 5pm on April 12.

The animal is believed to be between six and eight months old and is black and tan in colour with white tipped paws, tail and chest.

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.

    How sad, that highlights a wider issue of abandoned and lost dogs. The poor mutts should have dog tags!
