Bob is reunited with his owners after the social media hunt


A social media hunt led to the successful reuniting of an “adorable” dog and his owners.

“Bob”, thought to be a terrier mix strolled into the Grind & Co Shoreditch coffee shop and bar on Monday evening.

The dog straight away attracted staff members eyes and was not short of admirers.

But as Bob’s collar only gave his name and no address or number, a social media hunt for the owner ensued.

Staff at the coffee shop even considered finding a home for the dog themselves should no one come forward.

Fortunately Bob was reunited with his owners, from Clerkenwell, on Tuesday evening after a short stay with Islington Council.
