    Q248: I have lost my dog, what do I do?

    Most dogs do return of their own free will and if not most are reunited with their owners after a short space of time. The local dog warden retains reports of lost and found dogs.

    The police no longer have responsibility for stray dogs.

    If your dog has not already been micro-chipped it might be something to consider.
