We are pleased to say this dog is now back with his owner.

The GSPCA are appealing for the owner of a stray dog.

On Saturday the GSPCA were called out to collect a stray dog that was found near La Mare de Carteret Secondary School.

The male, black and white husky was found with no collar and no microchip.

The GSPCA rescue and care for 150 to 200 stray dogs every year in Guernsey but it is rare for them to be at the Shelter for a single night and in the last year there have only been two dogs that have been in for two nights.

This is the first time that staff can recall that a dog has been at the Shelter for three nights and if you have any information that may help please contact the Shelter on 01481 257261.

With only a third of dogs found stray with microchips and a similar number with ID tags the GSPCA are often faced with having to wait for owners of stray dogs to come forward.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'The stray husky is a lovely friendly dog but we are all concerned as it is rare for a stray to be at the Shelter for such a long period.'

'If anyone knows of the owner of this dog or has information we are asking them to please come forward.'

The GSPCA would like to remind all dog owners that if you have a dog over 6 months of age then you need to  contact your local Parish if you haven't already got your 2013 dog license.  Many of the Parishes are offering free microchipping with your dog tax, click here for more details.
