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.
