The council are appealing for the public's help in re-uniting an adorable collie with its owner.

The dog, whose name is not known, was found in Pack Lane, Oakley on April 21.

She does have a microchip, but the details are not up to date.

The tri-colour collie, around five years old, was carrying a pink ball when she was found.

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, who are currently caring for her, have attempted to locate the owner but have not been able to.

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s Dog Warden Laura Yeates said: “This lovely collie was found on Wednesday 21 April in Pack Lane, Oakley.

"We’ve had such a wonderful response to our appeal to find her owner on social media and I am amazed she has not been claimed yet.

"She is obedient, well-mannered and very loving. Someone must be missing her.

“She is in our care and being well looked after. She is chipped but unfortunately her details are not up to date.

"We hope our appeal will reunite her with her owner but this also serves as a good reminder to people that it is a legal requirement in England and Wales and the responsibility of the owner to make sure their dog’s micro-chip holds correct up-to-date information.

"This really helps when reuniting dogs with their owners.”
