The stray dog, who has been named Arthur, is now looking for his forever home after getting medical help from Leeds City Council's dog warden and Leeds Dogs Trust.

He was extremely frightened and nervous when found by a member of public on Christmas Day, and was checked for a microchip but nothing was found. He wasn't wearing a tag and a lost report had not been made, wardens found.

A post on Leeds Found Dogs Facebook page said a warden called Nichola "immediately fell for his foxy good looks".

The post said: "Arthur was limping when he was found, and a trip to the vets discovered that he had sliced one of his pads quite badly and he needed his paw bandaged and to be kept clean and dry.

"So they drove Arthur to Leeds Dogs Trust and the staff there immediately fell for this senior lovely and agreed to help. Arthur remained unclaimed and he is now looking for his forever retirement home. With that face we don't think he will be waiting very long..."
