An appeal has been launched to help reunite a lost dog with his owner.

The Staffordshire bull terrier was found lying in a field in the rain near Crowlin Crescent in Glasgow.

A member of the public noticed him on November 20 and alerted animal welfare charity SSPCA.

Staff determined that he is microchipped and his name is Tyro, but could not find a working contact number.

Now he is being looked after at the charity's Dunbartonshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, and the SSPCA are urging anyone who recognises him to get in touch. 

SSPCA centre manager, Judy Button, said, “The brindle and white staffie cross came to us as a stray on the November 20, and we are appealing to anyone who might know him or recognise him.

“He is microchipped to the Dumfries area, but unfortunately the phone number is incorrect. According the microchip, his name is Tyro.

“Tyro is a friendly, older dog and is sadly quite frail. He is estimated to be 11 years old.

“We are only able to hold animals as strays for seven days while we try and trace their owners, and after this time as long as they don’t need additional care or treatment they are made available for rehoming.

“We are urging anyone with any information about this dog to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
