An appeal has been launched to trace the owners of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier found near Lichfield.

The female dog was picked up by wardens in Fradley on February 17.

The animal is white and believed to be around 18 months old.

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.
