After months of wandering the south cliffs of Guernsey Slygo the stray terrier was safely caught in the early hours of this morning.

The GSPCA has been working with the authorities and other charities to capture the nervous little dog that has been stray since February this year.

We must start by thanking all of the press and public in their support as without the combined help of everyone involved we wouldn't have been able to catch him.
