Lurgan dog 'Missing Millie' is found after 18-day search

A dog missing from Lurgan for almost three weeks has been found safe and well.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, the Millie's owner Lisa McCord said that they had adopted the dog about a week and a half before she went missing, and that she had earlier lived on a farm in Kildare where she was neglected.

Since arriving back on Friday, Ms McCord said that Millie has already put on four ounces, and been to the vet twice.

A Facebook page set up to coordinate the search for Millie, a Bichon Frise rescue dog, was liked by more than 2,500 people with regular sightings of the animal being reported.

Ms McCord extended thanks to everyone that had helped in the search and explained that the animal was finally returned home after being spotted by a girl out horseriding.

The news of Millie's return was welcomed by local police, with PSNI Craigavon describing Millie as "the biggest fugitive Lurgan may ever have had".
