Lulu was spotted in a field by a female motorist driving on the A1. The escaped greyhound had a muzzle on throughout her ordeal and subsequently lost 5kg in weight.
Owner Carol Booth, 40, said: “She is staying with a friend of ours as she recuperates, they have a big garden and a few more greyhounds for her to socialise with. It could take her three to six months for her to get eating again properly and then hopefully we can get her back. She is such a lovely dog, very shy, but friendly when she is around the family – like a pet.”
