A Longford dog warden is appealing to people to make sure their details are properly registered when they get their dogs micro-chipped.
Hilary Robinson is making the appeal after she was able to reunite a pug dog with its owner in Cavan after two years, when he and two female pugs were found abandoned in Granard last week.
It’s likely the male dog was stolen for breeding purposes, but Hilary Robinson says she was only able to find his owners through the fact that their contact details were properly registered.
One of the other female pugs found in Granard also has a micro-chip but there were no details available on her owners.
Hilary Robinson is urging everyone to avail of a special offer for micro-chippings and licensing at Longford Dog Pound over the next few months.
