DORA'S STORY - Dora the explorer home safe and sound

Submitted by Steve on 18:01, 25th Jan, 2022 | 0

On Thursday 13th January 2022 Dora a medium sized cross breed dog managed to escape and decided to go for bit of a walk about.

Dora was originally lost near Amherst School.

From there she went on bit of an adventure and evaded being caught for nearly two weeks.

The GSPCA had many reports in many Parishes and we know she seemed to enjoy her time in St Andrews and Castel where we believe she was for much of the time she was missing.

We were pretty confident she was between Talbot Valley and Beaucamps for much of the last few days she was stray.

The GSPCA along with the RSPCA, Battersea Dogs’ Home, and the Kennel Club (to name a few) supports a review of the Dangerous Dog Act 1991 and all breed specific legislation and policies.
