FROM riding a pinata horse to trying his paw out on the sewing machine a soft toy dog named Puppy has been having some grand adventures in a Hervey Bay store after he was mistakenly left behind by his owner.

Staff at Spotlight posed the pup in a series of creative photos and posted them online in a successful effort to reunite him with his owner.

Bella was with her mum Tara shopping at Spotlight on Tuesday when her beloved Puppy went missing.

Tara said they retraced their steps and were unable to find the soft toy which was given to Bella from her grandmother.

"I thought she must have hidden him on one of the shelves, we thought he was gone forever," Tara said.

"Bella kept saying 'puppy gone, puppy gone'," she said. 

 

Thanks to the team at Spotlight in Hervey Bay, photos of puppy going on adventures in the store were posted on popular Facebook groups Brickbats and Bouquets Fraser Coast and Hervey Bay Buy Swap and Sell in search of his owner.

Spotlight's Kerrie Gomboc said puppy went for a ride on a piñata horse, helped out with some sewing, had a little nap and even helped out at the helium balloon station.

"We found him in the scrapbooking isle," Kerrie said.

Tara and Bella collected puppy from the store on Wednesday and were very thankful for the Spotlight team and their efforts.
