A LOCAL residents’ Facebook group came to the rescue when a young dog went missing in Mojacar.
Little Osker was enjoying a walk on the promenade with his ‘foster mum’ Pat Weston, when he slipped the lead and ran away.
A member of the ‘Mojacar Forum’ page, Ms Weston immediately posted a description and a photo in the hope people would help find the three-month old pup.
Within minutes, plenty of people were out searching along the beach area and up side streets.
Page administrator and dog lover, Brad Swift, called into every bar and restaurant along a three-kilometre strip, asking staff and clients if anyone had seen the dog.
Despite everyone’s efforts the dog was nowhere to be found.
To everyone’s relief, three days later came a breakthrough. Osker had found himself stuck on the balcony of an unoccupied apartment.
Fortunately the owner returned and found the dog and took him to a local vet, who recognised him from the Facebook posts and returned him to a delighted Pat, who commented that the little chap may have found his forever-home after all.
