Monty who disappeared from Buckhurst Hill whilst out on a walk with his owner, Martin was recovered some 30 miles away by Essex Police working in partnership with DogLost.
Monty is a very special dog as he was able to detect cancer in his owner who was subsequently diagnosed with throat cancer.
Said Shelagh Savage, DogLost Area Volunteer, East London: “Monty wasn’t in great shape when he got back and he needed to go to the vet who thought he’d probably been chained up for the entire time he was missing.”
Monty and a thrilled Martin are pictured here with the two officers who attended and recovered Monty.
