But as much as they love having him around, they want to reunite him with his true owner to make sure ‘Brian’ gets his home back.

Broadland Police said on Twitter: “Police want to reunite this dog with his owner. He was found early this morning on the NDR at Spixworth. [He] is currently fitting in well, loving his new role as Team Five mascot.

“For information, call 101 quoting CAD 210420-54.”
