Merseyside Police has rescued a black Terrier dog that was running along the Formby bypass this afternoon, Wednesday 29th March. At 3:30pm this afternoon, Merseyside Police received a report from Sefton Council who also contacted the Dog Warden, concerned about the welfare of a dog which people had seen running loose in the woods and running along the cycle path towards the BP petrol station on the bypass.
Police were concerned that the dog may run in front of a car and cause an accident or get hurt so Police cars were deployed to various locations. Police cars were seen on the bypass, at the BP and on the Southport Old Road whilst the operation to find and rescue the dog took place.
The dog was successfully located at 5:20pm this afternoon and reunited with it's owner.
Well done to everyone involved.
