The young female black and tan dog is being cared for by Best Friends vets until she goes to live with foster carers who hope to help her overcome her fear.

Her owners have still not been traced, despite being posted across social media.

In the meantime she will have a temporary home with Ravenswood Pet Rescue.

Shelley Ridgeon of Ravenswood, said a member of the public called police to say a dog had been hit in the road near Tattoo Crazy.
