The 13-year-old Staffordshire Bull terrier, who was found in a city underpass, was due to be put down the next day but was saved by a quick-thinking vet
A South Wales family’s missing pet dog has been found ten years after he disappeared – and was just a day from being put down.
The Staffordshire Bull terrier, called Chance, literally lived up to his name after owners – mother and son Sion and Julie Coombes – got the surprise phone call.
As an 11-year-old schoolboy Sion had been left heartbroken when his much-loved pet vanished from his home in Barry in 2004.
He and his mum Julie Coombes put posters on lamp posts hoping to find the loveable black and white terrier but gave up hope and bought another dog for Sion to play with.
