A MELBOURNE family has praised the Lost Dogs’ Home after it recovered their beloved pet and scores of others that were spooked by New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Nathalie Silva said the North Melbourne shelter was her first call when she realised her five-year-old maltese-shih tzu cross Bobby went missing during New Year celebrations at their Point Cook home.

“After about three hours sleep, we got up and went to the Lost Dogs’ Home and they told us they were just inundated with so many dogs,” Ms Silva said.

“We got there at about 9.30am and I think they’d already had 90 dogs come in. We ended up being there for a couple of hours because it was crazy.”

She thanked the shelter for reuniting her tired but happy family.

“We were worried because he’s part of the family,” she said. “I really didn’t get much sleep at all because he was on my mind.

“Luckily we found him.”
