Olly the shih tzu has been missing from home for a week
AN ANXIOUS dog owner is appealing for help after her pedigree shih tzu went missing from her front garden.
Olly, a two-year-old shih tzu, disappeared from Helen Lee’s front garden in Alston Moor Close, off Geneva Road in Darlington at around 2.30pm on Monday last week (September 30).
The garden gate had been left open by somebody delivering a takeaway leaflet and although the dog had wandered off before, he always came back or was returned by neighbours.
On this occasion he has not been seen for a week and Miss Lee said her 14-year-old son Scott is “absolutely devastated” by the dog’s disappearance.
The family have put posters up in the area and contacted the dog warden and the police who have heard nothing of Olly’s whereabouts.
Miss Lee said: “I only hope the right kind of person has found him and is looking after him – but he does have a home and we’re desperate to get him back.”
Olly is microchipped and is wearing a brown studded collar and if anybody knows where he is they can contact Miss Lee on 01325-491904.
