All dog owners have been sent a warning ahead of the sale of explosives.
In the run-up to Bonfire Night, a search organization that tracks missing pets is advising dog owners to save their contact information.
According to K9 Search UK, located in the West Midlands, supermarkets will begin selling fireworks on Friday, October 15, and pet owners should prepare their canines now.
