Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for information about a missing 10-week-old Shih Tzu puppy in Bridgwater.
The female puppy, called Sooty is believed to have escaped from its owner’s home in the Turner Road area of the town on Friday 13 November.
A witness has said they found the puppy near Old Taunton Road between 9.30am and 10am the same day, but gave it to two men walking with a whippet-type dog to look after until the owner could be traced.
The puppy has not been handed into the police, any local vets or the RSPCA.
Sooty isn’t micro-chipped but has a distinctive birth defect – her ribs are not in alignment and stick out more at the back.
If you’ve seen Sooty or know where she is, please call PC Nicola Brown via 101 and quote reference number 5215045454.
