Renegade Bullseye’s back with his masters.

This bulldog’s tail had a waggy ending as he was reunited with his owners after his mastiff adventure.

The wayward hound boarded a number 22 bus and took a ride into town – and he hadn’t even bought a rover ticket.

Also read: 

Owners Scott Maynard, Terrie Nott and their sons Jake and Jimmy, three were ecstatic to hear he was homeward bound after Argus chief photographer Simon Dack helped retriever Bullseye.

Ten year old Jake was especially pleased to have his pawsome pal home to help celebrate his birthday today.

This story is so wrong, with all the dog attacks in the UK ,The Argus is making out be some sort of HOLLYWOOD Lassie type story. Would the story have been the same if the dog a had mauled a child?

I doubt it would have been the same if someone was hurt. But no one was and the dog was returned unharmed. Happy ending :-)

Bizarre comment. In a world of bad news this is a small insignificant story that ended well and nobody was hurt. What a sad world you must live within.

Isn't it just possible that the whole thing was manufactured?

The Argus gave us three entire reports on it, one of which contained this:

"And Argus chief photographer Simon Dack helped reunite man's best friend with his owners. After taking some pictures of the paw-lorn looking pooch at Priory Vale vets in Patcham where he was being checked over - Mr Dack stumbled across a group of children looking for a bulldog in Queen's Park. "

'Stumbled'.

Mr Dack has already been exposed as someone who creates 'spontaneous' events, the latest being the 'seagull snatches doughnut from unwary tourist'.....she happened to be his wife and just happened to be holding the doughnut above her head as Mr Dack just happened to have his camera pointing at her in 'video' mode.

How did he discover the kids were looking for a dog?

I'm glad it ended well, but it strikes me that Mr Dack knows more about this than he's let on.

Only a couple of months since Anna Roberts suddenly left the Argus after attempting to interview some pupils with learning disabilities outside a special needs school, and now Simon Dack is approaching unaccompanied children in the park on the pretext of looking for a dog.

To be fair to Dack, it is possible that the encounter with those kids didn't take place because the whole thing was a set-up.

Never read about that. Undoubtedly this wasn't to be found in the Argus?

One of the school's staff complained to the paper, and she left a week later without a job to go to. She's currently a "freelance consultant" in London. Go figure.
