Bear, who is chipped and also has a docked tail, is the best friend of their 23-year-old daughter Ellie who has additional needs so they are desperate to get him home.

Owner Catherine Bamber who has appeared on BBC Lancashire, has set up various social media platforms including a TikTok account and a BringBearHome Facebook page, is also offering a £1,000 reward for the safe return of their beloved dog.

Posting on her Facebook page which has amassed over 1,000 followers, she said: "Another miserable day and if he is still out there I hope he is snuggled somewhere keeping dry.
