Update – Found on 21st October in Waltham Forest and safely back home with owner.
“He’s back,” said Eddie. “Thank you for your support. Whoever took him, they actually took him up to Waltham Forest and dropped him out there.”
A dog warden discovered Mask and was able to track Eddie down via his microchip.
Mask suffers separation anxiety and cries when left alone, but Eddie said: “He was happy to see me. He shut up straight away. He’s quiet now. They got him yesterday.
“I would like to shame the person had done it [taken him]. It’s a shameful thing to do.”
In response to the news, Whittington Health NHS Trust tweeted: “A happy ending.”
