“He was very clean,” said Cllr Ryan. “Obviously he had come from around that area, but no one came forward.”
She added: “When we got to Bow, my daughter and I were both crying.”
The driver of the car which hit the animal was said to be “distraught”.
The accident happened on Boxing Day – a Thursday – some time between 1pm and 2pm.
If you think you know the identity of the dog’s owner, call the PDSA hospital in Bow on 020 8980 5011.
