A dog that had been lost on Mousehold Heath in Norwich has been found and returned to its owner, who is visiting Norfolk from her home in Kidderminster.

Heather Hollis and her dog Sam, a 12-year-old lurcher, have been staying with her daughter, Sarah Norcross-Robinson, of Silver Street.

The dog was lost on Mousehold Heath on Sunday though and we published an appeal yesterday afternoon to ask readers to keep a lookout for the dog.

A Norwich City Council dog warden was called with a sighting of the dog and has reunited him with his owner.

Ms Norcross-Robinson said: “He’s not starved or bedraggled or anything, so he wasn’t badly treated by whoever had him.

“We just want to say a massive thank you to everybody for all their support and help.”

Sam is a therapy dog which visits residential homes to offer comfort and support to older people back home in Worcestershire.

He is also on medication so Ms Norcross-Robinson and her mother needed him to be returned as soon as possible.

Our appeal was soon being circulated around Facebook and Twitter by our readers, with the publicity playing a big part in reuniting the dog with its owner.

  • You sound more likely to attack children than this dog that is used as a therapy dog in old people's homes, you grumpy old git!

  • Tess I couldn't agree with you more! Blister I feel saddened that you think such thoughts. Go away and think about how upsetting comments like yours may be to others.

  • this animal should have been kept on a lead and it would'nt have got lost, while off it's lead it could have attacked children and probably fouled the area it was lost in
