But it took another Beagle to talk the right language and bring Olly home...

This morning Olly was found thanks to Good Samaritan Iain Greeley (and Holly)
Iain, MD at Leyland-based SafeChoice Packaging Ltd, took the morning off work to go exploring to find Olly with his own Beagle, five-year-old Holly, after seeing the Post's appeal to find the dog.

He and Holly drove up to Clifton from their home in Chorley and after an hour and a half Holly and Olly started howling to each other
Iain said: "As a Beagle owner myself; I hope the same would be done for me. He was a little bit timid like you'd expect but I brought some biscuits with me as I knew he'd be hungry. "
"I just stayed with him until his owners arrived. My own disappeared once, only for 40 minutes, and that was bad enough."
Rewards all round: Holly and Teddy celebrating in the pub. Holly is partial to the odd Quaver
Reunited: Vanessa Whiles, who suffered a broken wrist in the smash, was desperate to locate two-and-a-half-year-old Olly with appeals to find the pup going viral on social media.
Speaking about the crash, Vanessa, a critical care staff nurse at Royal Preston Hospital, explained: Someone tried to help me get out. The man grabbed Olly with his lead but he got free."
Safe and sound: Olly the Beagle back where he belongs after his, and his owner's ordeal
