It’s a ‘tail’ with a happy ending as a missing dog has been found 60 miles from home in the Ballymena area.
A social media campaign led to the safe return of Portavogie pooch ‘Daisy’.
However, it seemed Daisy had been dicing with death as she was spotted wandering on a slip road on the motorway at Ballymena.
‘Belfast Live’ reports that Julie Vauls was driving with her husband when they stopped to rescue the dog.
She said: “I’m glad that I was able to get Daisy back to owner.
“My husband was driving and he saw the wee dog coming towards us. We stopped and lucky enough she came to me.
“It was hard leaving her at vets but they found owners so it was brilliant the dog’s owners were found.
“The wee dog could have been killed if she had gone a few yards further.”
It is unknown how Daisy came to be in Ballymena.
The picture above shows Daisy back home in Portavogie.
The ‘find Daisy’ campaign was mounted by Mace Portavogie.
Daisy had gone missing from their forecourt.
In a Facebook post they said: ‘DAISY HAS BEEN FOUND, she was dumped yes dumped and found running towards the motor way in Broughshane!! SHE IS SAFE AND COMING HOME 🙏🙏🙏
‘I’m in tears 😭 this has made my August 😍😍😍😍😍😍
‘Super job by Michaela at the vets and also the lady who lifted this wee one and brought her to safety, could have been a different story, the amount of people who shared this are amazing 🤗👍’
