A distraught dog owner is offering a £100 reward for the safe return of her beloved Yorkshire Terrier Max who went missing on Saturday.
Mother-of-four Mrs Cath Pickup, of Durham Road, Wilpshire, has erected lost posters all around the Ribble Valley, from her home in Wilpshire to Edisford Bridge in Clitheroe, after seven-year-old Max went missing on Saturday after being scared by a firework.
“He is terrified of fireworks,” explained Cath, “but it was quiet on Saturday for fireworks and we let him out for a wee as normal, but then a massive bang went off and he escaped out of the garden.”
She added: “We spent six hours that night looking for him all around Wilpshire.”
After Max went missing at 9 pm on Saturday, there have been sightings of a terrified dog that looked like Max, at Foxfields, Mytton Fold, both at Langho, and Mitton Hall at Whalley.
Cath has informed the police, local schools, vets, kennels, dog wardens and the RSPCA, but so far to no avail. She has also posted missing posters on her Facebook page.
Cath’s other Yorkshire Terrier Millie is pining for Max and her family is desperate to see his safe return.
Anyone with information about Max should call 01254 245767 or 07805 177324.
