Sad news to report from the Hucknall Dispatch this morning.

Dutch had gone missing from his Hucknall home and owner Cory Morgan, of Charles Street, had put up a £500 reward for the safe return of the much-loved dog.

Dutch had been rescued from a puppy farm and had been with his new family for about four months.

The Dispatch contacted Mr Morgan this morning to be told that Dutch had been found on the Linby Trial late on Tuesday afternoon.

Sadly, Dutch had passed away. The family said that they would like to pass on their thanks to people who had been out looking for Dutch.
