On Wednesday, March 22, Alison’s dad, who has Alzheimer’s, went out on his usual walk around the block in Dollar Avenue with Skye.

Alison said: “A neighbour was speaking to my dad at 10.25am and he had Skye with him, on the lead, then at 10.30am another neighbour, a few doors down, spotted my dad agitated and confused holding a dog lead.
