If it is still alive then a more detailed ID might be possible. They tend to have numbers stored in their internal organs. Dissection however should not be necessary and really should be avoided as it might actually invalidate any service agreement.
(As you are in the area, please look out for a pair of my glasses somewhere in Borrowdale and my wife's cardigan between Troutbeck and Staveley - neither of these has been added to iSpot.)

This is not a "smart phone", but it still appears smarter than the former owner! Mind you, I can't claim to be much smarter: like RHoman, I have mislaid stuff in the wild. There is a Casio watch of mine somewhere on WIlden Marsh, Stourport-on-Severn. Moral of this tale: leave it at home when pollarding willows...
