Dog Found Up Highest Mountain In England

The Scottish SPCA is caring for a dog found at the top of the highest mountain in England by Scottish holidaymakers who took him home to Ayrshire.

The Scottish SPCA were alerted by the couple from Maybole after they found the male collie cross at the summit of Scafell Pike in the Lake District on Saturday (16 May).

The dog, who has been nicknamed Scafell and is thought to be between five and eight years old, is now in the care of our animal rescue and rehoming centre in Glasgow.

Centre manager Anna O'Donnell said, "The couple who found Scafell said he was petrified and nervous and it took them around half an hour to coax him over to them.

"They advised they did try and get help in England and had called the police but they hadn't been able to assist so they took Scafell home because they were so worried about him and then called us.

"Unfortunately Scafell isn't microchipped so we have been unable to trace his owner.  "We have also searched for information about dogs who have gone missing in the area with no luck.

"At this stage it's all a bit of a mystery but we believe Scafell may have been taken up the mountain by his owner and become lost. There is also a chance he was abandoned and made his own way up to the top of Scafell Pike.

"It would be fantastic if we are able to reunite him with his owner if he has gone missing. If not we will find him a loving new home in Scotland."

Anyone who recognises Scafell is being urged to contact our Glasgow centre on 03000 999 999.
