AN animal sanctuary has appealed for the owners of a dog found at the side of a busy road to come forward.
The female dog, described as a black and white sheepdog is believed to be about 15-years-old, and suffers from cataracts, arthritis and hearing problems.
She was handed in to the Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary, near Bishop Auckland, County Durham, on March 21, after being found at the side of the A68, near Bildershaw Bank, West Auckland.
Kays Hill volunteer Sue Betts said: “Nobody has been in touch so far, if anybody knows anything please come forward.”
Mrs Betts has taken the dog into her care at home for now, and describes her as ‘lovely-natured’.
Anybody with information is asked to call the sanctuary on 01388-834996.
