A beagle and Bernese mountain dog cross, Toby was missing from his home since earlier this week but at 5pm this Wednesday, he was dropped at the side of the road near his home and was reunited with his owners. Although not wearing collar, Toby is microchipped and has been one of number of dogs taken in the area in a spate of recent thefts. Gardai are still investigating the matter and indeed the thefts of all dogs in the area and are appealing for the assistance of the public who may know anything. Thankfully, this story had a happy ending as Toby is back home and John Lenihan of Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland said “the media coverage, which we are so grateful for, obviously scared the thieves or aroused their conscience.” Facebook Print
