Pensioners dog goes missing – is then found stuck behind recliner 2 days later

Have you ever found yourself looking for something, and it turns out it had been under your nose the entire time?

An elderly woman was reunited with her dog after he went missing for two days, only to discover that he had been lodged under her recliner the entire time.

The 93-year-old called the police, worried after her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Toby, hadn't shown up in a while.

The concerned officers visited her residence in Matlock, Derbyshire, to see if she needed any support, TeamDogs reports.

While PC Tammy Wood, of Derbyshire Constabulary, spoke to the woman about the missing dog, she helped reach an item that had fallen on the floor.

As she got lower to pick up the item, she noticed two huge eyes and a furry figure quietly stare back at her.

PC Wood carefully freed Toby from underneath the woman's recliner and he appeared to be well – just hungry and thirsty.

The police force shared an adorable picture taken from PC Wood's bodycam showing Toby following her into the kitchen for a drink and some food.

PC Wood, from the police’s local Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Both Toby and his owner appeared to be over the moon to be reunited, and it was clearly a huge relief for the woman.

"Her family, friends, and neighbours had all been out looking for Toby, but she was becoming ever more distressed as time went on believing he had managed to get out, and fearing the worst.

“Our pets are companions and become members of the family. I’m just very pleased that we were able to put the woman’s mind at rest and make sure her dog was safe.”

PC Wood made sure Toby was fed and watered before leaving the home and checked to see if the woman and her family needed any further support.
