A word of advice for all owners is to ensure that your dog wears an up to date ID Disk (which is legal requirement) so it can be reunited with you quickly, alternately have it implanted with a micro chip, this can be done by the vets or a local charity and is a permanent way to ensure your dog can be traced back to you.
Please note that as of April 6th 2016 it is now a legal requirement for your dog(s) to be microchipped and the details be kept up to date, failure to do so could result in a 500 fine.
