The owners of Frank the missing sausage dog have paid tribute to the 'kindess of the community' after his disappearance caused a facebook frenzy.

Frank was last seen on the canalside at Lobb Mill in Todmorden. For two weeks his owners, along with dog trackers, Frank's close family and his dog walker searched tirelessly for him.

A reward of £2,000 was offered and a facebook appeal to find Frank was the talk of the town with many keeping a daily watch on social media.

Thank you all so much for you continued support. We all just want to say that none of us are being ignorant if we haven’t replied to your messages we just didn’t expect the response we have had and we can’t reply to every person wishing us good luck or asking for an update in our search for frank whilst running on very little sleep due to late nights, sleeping in cars and constant exercise in the hope to find him.

Frank's owner Jenny Baldwin says there are 'no words to describe' how thankful she is to the couple who managed to safely catch Frank, who is now recuperating at the vets.

If we were to individually tag and thank everyone who has helped we would be here all night and I am sure most of Tod Chat & That have had their fair fill of Frank posts for now.

The kindness of the community for our little dog is something to be proud of, we are forever grateful

– Jenny Baldwin, Frank's owner

And when Jenny announced he'd been found she was inundated with messages of support
