Blind and deaf dog's owner search
A farmer's wife is appealing for help to find the owners of an old, blind and deaf sheepdog found in a field near Borth in Ceredigion.
Rhian Williams-Watkin believes the dog, whom she has called Ed, may have been set loose or simply wandered off and was unable to find his way home.
She said Ed was malnourished and infested with fleas and worms when he was found just over a week ago.
Ed "seems to have been loved because he enjoys cuddles," she added.
It is thought he has been missing for weeks and has probably survived by eating grass and slugs.
Mrs Williams-Watkin has made inquiries with farmers nearby and the local veterinary surgery, but the trail has gone cold.
She is now considering putting up signs in the area in a last ditch attempt to find Ed's owners.
Mrs Williams-Watkin, from Dolybont, about six miles north of Aberystwyth, said: "Ed can stay here, but it would be great to find his owners especially if they're missing him and don't know where he is.
"I named him Ed and he's blind and very hard of hearing.
"When we found him he had fleas and worms and was malnourished, but he's received treatment and is now starting to put on weight.
"It's possible he may have wandered off and has been unable to find his way home or he may have been unable to work because of his blindness and has been set loose."
