Similar dog found Wolverhampton. Vet says it is a cross between a German shepherd and a husky. Worth a look. On Wolverhampton lost and found dogs. I have also given details of who posted it. Says not microchipped but doesn't mean it is not him.

CROSS POSTED UPDATE from owner on FINN's fb group:

Liz Anne Butterworth‎ to FIND FINN - FORMBY L37 - SOUTHPORT PR8

4 hrs · Southport ·

Just for clarification:

We had two people say they saw Finn on Guildford Road last Sunday and they are both fairly confident it was him.

I believe the Ince blundell sighting was a wind up but that may just be me and it's definitely worth keeping eyes about in that area. However I am not convinced Finn would go there as it's across a very busy road and he hates cars and he's also never been further south than Formby.

It makes more sense for him to be sighted on Guildford Road as this means he's heading home it unfortunately he's slightly too far east. But if he's stuck to fields from Ainsdale then he would end up at Guildford Road.

We'd still appreciate if people are local to Formby or Aindale and looking on their walks where we lost Finn just in case but we are focusing on Guildford Road area for now xx
