An urgent appeal reaches me via Facebook from Lee Chapman, who’s today (Saturday, 3rd January 2015) found a Collie dog near Brownhills Common on the A5.

He posted the following:

** URGENT ** I have just found a long haired tri-coloured Border Collie on the A5 between the Crown Island (pub) and the Watling Street School.

I picked her up and it’s now at my house being looked after. it looks as though it’s been missing a while and had is pretty skinny. If you know who this may belong too please get in touch.

Lee added later:

He’s doing a lot better now, she’s stopped shaking and has finally eaten and taken on water, she’s very affectionate too bless her.
