Police find dog missing since before Christmas

Nottinghamshire Police response officers were called to a job last week where they came across a dog called Cleo who had been missing since before Christmas.

The dog, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier was cared for by Response and NPT officers who were able to confirm that she had been chipped and spayed.

Police in Bassetlaw said:

‘Working with the microchip company officers were able to make contact with the owner of the dog who confirmed that her one-year-old Staffie, Cleo, went missing just before Christmas causing much distress to her children.

‘Cleo’s owner came to Worksop to fetch her causing a few sad faces in the station as she was such a lovely little girl and we were secretly hoping she could become our office dog

‘Cleo’s mum told PC Tremayne and PCSO Dixon that her kids “will be over the moon to have Cleo back”.

‘Moral to the story:

‘Microchip your pets. If Cleo hadn’t been, the family may never have been reunited with their much-loved pet.

‘You must make sure your dog is microchipped and registered on a database by the time it’s 8 weeks old.

‘From 10 June 2024, cats in England will need to be microchipped and registered on a database by the time they’re 20 weeks old.

You can be fined up to £500 if your dog or cat is not microchipped when they need to be.’
