A St Albans dog has been reunited with its owners after being found by police officers.

The animal was found wondering Colney Heath Lane yesterday morning (Sunday, August 27).

No owner was located nearby, and the dog wasn't wearing a collar.

To make the search for its owners even harder for police, officers could find no identifying features on the animal.


Hertfordshire Constabulary appealed for the public's help in returning the dog to its owners.
