A LURCHER found in Petworth by Chichester District Council dog wardens was happily reunited with its owner three days after it went missing.
More than 11,000 people viewed the dog on the council’s Facebook site, with many sharing the post to try and find the owner.
“We regularly find missing dogs so we encourage owners to microchip their pets and make sure they wear a tag - we can reunite them much quicker,” said a spokesperson at CDC.
“Facebook is a fantastic place to reunite dogs with their owners. On one occasion more than 100,000 people viewed one post. There are so many dog lovers on Facebook who are keen to help and we’d like to thank them for their support.”
