A DEVASTATED family is sending out a plea after their dog disappeared from Redditch over two weeks ago.
Gillian Davies’ beloved pet went missing on October 24 from their home on Eathrope Close, Matchborough.
Her husband Kevin returned from a fishing trip and was putting his equipment away in a garden shed, leaving the front door open.
Usually their two dogs, Fred and Millie wait by the door, but after half hour the family realised Fred was nowhere to be seen.
Amy Davies, Gillian’s daughter says a witness then saw a young lady picking up Fred on Monday, October 25 who was running loose on Icknield Street Drive and put him in her people carrier.
Amy said: “It’s been over two weeks now and we haven’t heard anything.
“We have had had so many messages of support and people wishing he would come home.
“Someone has got our dog and we want him back.”
The family have put posters up around the area and handed out leaflets but so far, no leads have led to Fred being found.
The Yorkshire Terrier has bad arthritis and is neutered so cannot be used to breed puppies.
Amy added: “He is 12 years old, so I don’t know what a person’s motive is for taking him.
“My mom is absolutely heartbroken – she cannot stop crying.
“Seeing my mother cry so much is just awful – she is constantly sobbing.
“We are pleading to have Fred home – please give us our dog back!”
Anyone who has any information is urged to contact Amy on A.firstname.lastname@example.org.
