Appeal results in happy reunion


An animal lover who saw a dog abandoned in Hemel Hempstead says social media helped reunite the animal with its rightful owner.

Mark Goodman of Windmill Road alerted Dacorum’s dog warden after seeing a man throw a ball for a female Staffordshire bull terrier into Gadebridge Park, and then drive off.

He said: “How anyone can do that I don’t know.

“It was through people sharing my post on Facebook that the owner was found. Someone who saw it had noticed a woman crying and shouting out for her dog, they were reunited the next day.”
