A tiny Chihuahua cross found on the London underground during the summer heatwave is looking for a few home.
The nine-week-old puppy, named George Michael, was found sitting alone, with no collar nor lead, on the tube in North West London. A member of the public brought him into animal welfare charity Mayhew.
Mayhew’s Animal Welfare Officer, Paul Grimes, said, “We don’t know how long poor George Michael had been left on the tube for in this hot weather. We can’t imagine how confusing it must have been for him.
“At Mayhew we are here to assist and advise on the best course of action for the animal, no matter what the problem is, we are here to help.”
George Michael was immediately given a health check, and he was found to be a little scared but overall in good health. He wasn’t microchipped, and no one has reclaimed him.
“We strongly advise all pet owners to have their animal microchipped to significantly increase your chances of being reunited should the unthinkable happen and your pet becomes lost or is stolen,” Grimes added.
“It is also important to keep details up to date on the microchipping database, and to notify the chip company if you change phone numbers, address or if your pet does go missing.”
Now vaccinated and neutered, George Michael is ready for his forever home. If you think it might be yours, visit this page or call Mayhew on 020 8962 8000.
