POLICE are looking for the owner of a small dog that was found in Blackbird Leys. 

They say a little Shih Tzu - or a similar looking breed of dog - was found in the area. 

A Shih Tzu (a similar looking dog pictured above) is a small toy dog breed from China.

It was taken to the vets last night by a 'kind' member of the public, but police used Twitter to try and reunite the pup with its owner.
