They’d be able to keep the dog for two days while she and her husband try to locate its owner, she added.

“Hopefully the boy is microchipped and we’ll be able to find the owner. I’ll contact nearby vets and groomers tomorrow in case they recognise the dog. Please keep spreading the word and help find the owner,” said the OP.

The dog was revealed to be a three-year-old poodle-Irish setter mix named MacRitchie.
