A stray dog found in Scotland was traced back to it's owner and it turns out she has travelled a long way.

When her microchip was scanned, the Scottish SPCA discovered the dog, nicknamed "Carmen", was actually from Spain.

The animal charity is now attempting to find the owner of the dog.

The stray, which is thought to be a two to three-year-old Estrela mountain dog, was discovered in Deedes Street in Airdrie on 17 October, reports the BBC.

The SPCA said they believe her owners may have moved to Scotland from Spain or taken the dog with them on holiday.

Carmen is currently being looked after by the charity's animal rescue and rehoming team in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, reports the Metro.

Peter Fleming, manager of the centre, said: 'Unfortunately Carmen's microchip hasn't been registered in this country and we've been unable to find any contact details for her owner.

"It may be that someone brought Carmen to Scotland when they moved here from Spain and she has gone missing recently.

"We also can't rule out the possibility she has come over on holiday with her owner and been left behind.

"Hopefully someone will recognise Carmen as we'd really like to return this lovely girl home, wherever that may be. If no-one comes forward we'll find her a loving new owner."

Anyone who recognises Carmen is asked to contact the Scottish SPCA.
