Ipswich: Former ITFC ace Connor Wickham reunited with beloved dog

FORMER Ipswich Town ace Connor Wickham has been reunited with his beloved dog after an anxious few days of searching for the missing pooch.

The 18-year-old, now plying his trade up north with Sunderland, was devastated by the disappearance of pet pug Louis last Wednesday morning.

But the striker, who had launched a desperate appeal for help from his Twitter followers, delightedly announced on the site last night that eight-month-old Louis had returned home.

He declared: “Wooohoooo! My boy is home!

“Thank you for all your support....so happy he is finally home and in very good condition!”

It is unclear how eight-month-old Louis found his way back home to Ponteland in Northumberland, which is near Newcastle.

However, his return followed a frantic poster campaign by Wickham.
