Lost and alone, this dog found wandering outside Bury St Edmunds police station is hoping to be reunited with its owner - do you know who he belongs to?
The black and white male staffy has a collar and a microchip, but the police have so far been unable to find where he lives.
He was found at about 11.15am on Wednesday, January 1 running around at the front of the Bury St Edmunds police station.
The officers have attempted to trace his chip but the alleged owner has reportedly moved house without updating their details.
Despite appeals on social media, no-one has come forward to claim the animal.

An officer from the Rural Crime Suffolk team tweeted a photo with the dog, saying: "Poor mite was found wandering streets. I couldn't see him sit out in the cold kennel.
"After some police issue dog breakfast and a walk he's decided my office floor isn't good enough. There's worse people to share your chair with!"
The department has now confirmed that the dog has been taken to the kennels for some check ups and has a lovely temperament.
They have suggested that if enquiries do not lead them to an owner he would make a lovely pet for someone.
