The Scottish SPCA is seeking the owner of a dog found in Lanarkshire with a European microchip.
We were alerted after the male Staffordshire bull terrier cross was discovered at Main Street in Holytown on Thursday 18 February.
The brindle and white dog is now in the care of our animal rescue and rehoming centre in Hamilton.
Centre manager Peter Fleming said, “This dog has a foreign microchip but unfortunately it has not been registered in the UK.
“We know which country the microchipped was registered in but we would like to keep this information confidential to assist with identification should an owner come forward.
“This goes to show the importance of owners remembering to update microchip details if they move address or their contact details change.
“We think it’s likely the owner has moved to Scotland with their dog and we hope they will get in touch. If no one comes forward we’ll find him a loving new home.”
Anyone who recognises the dog is being urged to contact our Hamilton centre on 03000 999 999.
