THE owner of a missing young spaniel who has raised money for Burton’s Queen’s Hospital has been staggered at the level of support in tracing him.
Ziggy is still missing but his owner, Jo Hopkins, has been heartened by the fantastic response from the Mail readers, saying: “I’ve been staggered by the kindness of complete strangers, and had wonderful messages of support and people out helping to search.”
The dog appeared in the Mail when he helped to raise funds for the hospital’s League of Friends annual sponsored dog walk.
Though Ziggy has a collar and identity disc on when he went missing during a family walk in Alrewas on January 19, this may have been removed or fallen off. However, he is microchipped so can be easily identified at any vets or rescue centre.
Readers are urged to keep an eye out for a new dog on the block and report if they have any suspicions by phoning 07790291494.
