A chihuahua which was missing for 11 days has been reunited with his owner.

Two year old Choccy is now back with his owner, Lena Farquhar, who lives in Fraserburgh.

Lena adopted Choccy on January 10 from Mrs Murray’s Stray Cats and Dogs Home in Aberdeen. But to Lena’s horror, Choccy ran away almost as soon as she arrived at her new home. Speaking to the Fraserburgh Herald, Lena explained how Choccy was taken out of the car and managed to twist his collar before running off.

Lena, along with friends and family, spent six days searching for the chihuahua, which included a radio appeal.

Lena’s nephew, Jonathan Buchan and his friend Justin Thomson, along with Lena’s niece Arlene Buchan, all helped in the search effort. Lena also informed the police.

Commenting, Lena said: “I was really upset. I didn’t know what to do.

“I think he must have been taken in by somebody, and I’m grateful for that.

“He’d been fed as he’s not lost weight, but I’ve no idea where he went.

“I last saw him at Westfield School and that’s where he was found. It’s great to have him back home, I’m over the moon about it.

“I would like to thank everyone who was concerned and who helped to find him.”
