She was stashed away in the boot of a car.

Saved by the police after a car chase through York, this French bulldog now wants to be reunited with her owners.

Her rescue began around 9.30pm on Tuesday, 28 January, when a light blue BMW 3 series failed to stop for police on Foss Islands Road in York.


Following a short pursuit, the car was stopped by police and the 18-year-old driver from Doncaster was arrested.

Officers searched the vehicle and found the dog in the boot.

Checked by a vet

She was taken to a local vet where she was checked over and found to have no injury and be in good health.

She is believed to be around two years of age and is a brindle colour.

The dog is micro chipped. But police enquiries have not be able to locate her owner, so officers are now appealing for the public’s assistance to reunite them with their dog.


If you can help, please contact North Yorkshire Police on the numbers below.

The dog is currently doing well and remains in the care of the local vet.

The driver of the car has been charged with dangerous driving, driving otherwise in accordance of a licence, failing to stop and driving without insurance.
