The dog could be rehoused - and then would not be able to be found by the current owner - if he is not claimed from the dog warden.

He is wearing a brown leather collar with no tag.

A post by Thornberry Animal Sanctuary to help Zorro be reunited with his owner has been shared more than 1,200 times on Facebook.

Jay Constantine, a receptionist at the Hunters Bar clinic, said: "Ensure that you have microchipped your dog as early as you can do and keep those details up to date.

She added: "Spread the word about this to people who do not have internet access and may not know that microchips are now a legal requirement in England."

Please call Hunters Bar vets on 0114 266 3607 with any information.
