A black greyhound which had been missing from its home for a week and was in need of medication was found safe and well last Wednesday and reunited with its owner.

Extensive searches of the area around Toftwood had continued since King went missing after its owners took him to Dereham's Neatherd Moor on September 30 and it ran off. Concern was growing about the animal's welfare because it would have soon needed medication.

The search was co-ordinated by the Kerry Greyhound Connection which helps to re-home former discarded or redundant racing greyhounds.

The owners were so concerned about King that they placed a £150 appeal/reward notice in the Times' sister paper the EDP and distributed around 2,000 leaflets featuring King's photograph and contact telephone numbers.

But a delighted Ms Catton said King was found in woodland at North Tuddenham. He was found by owner Mandy Kingwell-Smith her partner Derek Smith.
