Nennella, a brindle and white Female Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross went missing on the 21st September this year.
Her owner Walter later spoke with the Dog Warden to notify them and he started looking for Nennella, He spent the next few weeks frantically looking for Nennella. Walter was physically looking as well and gathered a large social media following on Facebook.
He spoke with the dog warden again on 29th September. They noted no dog had been found matching Nennella’s description.
On the 13th of October 2020, Walter received a call from the dog warden, they had found Nennella. She had actually been found the very same day she went missing but for some unknown reason, they hadn’t made the connection with Walter’s report about Nennella going missing.
She had been re-homed with another family. Walter was and is devastated.
Walter unfortunately wasn’t aware of the law around microchipping and Nennella wasn’t registered on a Defra compliant database. This does not make Walter a bad dog owner. He just didn’t know about this. (It’s a huge problem all round in the UK. Many very responsible dog owners haven’t got their pet’s details up to date or aren’t even sure which database their dog is registered on.
We support Walter in getting Nennella back. You can see a few pictures below of Walter and Nennella, along with a few tips for her adopter.
