An appeal for help to trace the owner of an elderly lost dog has caused a social media storm.
More than 93,000 people have seen the story promoted by Mid Suffolk District Council on Facebook.
The springer spaniel was picked up on Sunday from Needham Lake by the council’s kennelling service.
He was found with stomach problems and was taken in for veterinary treatment. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Joanna Hart, senior environmental protection officer at Mid Suffolk and Babergh, said: “Sadly, this dog was not wearing a collar and ID tag, as required by law, and so we are absolutely desperate to get in contact with his family – who I would imagine will be very worried about him.”
The appeal was only published on Tuesday, but council officials are hoping it will make a difference to the dog’s future
There are signs the dog was previously wearing a collar, which may have been lost, or removed, before he was found.
