A dog that was found abandoned on a train in Swansea, Wales, is still waiting to be claimed by its rightful owner.

Precious the chihuahua was found in a carriage at the city's station.

She is currently being cared for by a foster family after being taken in by RSPCA Llys Nini in Penllergaer, reports the South Wales Evening Post.

The dog was discovered in carry case by a train guard on the Arriva Trains' Manchester Piccadilly to Carmarthen service on Thursday 17 January.

The dog is thought to be elderly but seems to be in good health.

Inspector Nic De Celis told Aol Travel: "There could be someone out there who is missing this dog and is frantic with worry and we'd really like to reunite them with their pet. But at the moment the reason why this dog was left alone on the train is a complete mystery.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who has any information, whether they noticed the dog while travelling on the train or if they know of someone who is missing a chihuahua".

Anyone who has information about this incident is asked to to contact the inspector's information line on 0300 123 8018.
