The Scottish SPCA appeals for information after dog travels almost 400 miles

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after a stray lurcher travelled from Uxbridge in West London to Coatbridge in North Lanarkshire. 

Paloma

We were alerted to the black female dog by Police Scotland after she was handed into a station by a member of the public. The member of the public had found the dog straying in West London and drove her almost 400 miles to the police station in Coatbridge where they live.

The dog is now in the care of our animal rescue and rehoming centre in Lanarkshire.

Centre manager Peter Fleming said, “We were notified by Police Scotland of the dog who had been handed into the police station in Coatbridge. We were very surprised to hear where she came from.

“She is a very friendly girl and is in good health, the staff have named her Paloma.

“The member of the public found Paloma straying on the M25 in Uxbridge, West London and put her in his vehicle and travelled the long distance to Coatbridge.”

Anyone who recognises Paloma or has any further information relating to the incident should contact the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
