Chihuahua Minnie is returned to her family
2:56pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
A BOSBURY family are delighted to be reunited with their beloved pet which disappeared a month ago.
Minnie the chihuahua vanished from near the Tennant family home at Morton Cottages on Saturday, September 28.
From the start, dad Jonathan Tennant suspected the little dog had been stolen. The family put out an appeal on Facebook, and contacted everyone they could think of in the search for Minnie.
They enlisted the help of Hereford-based pet detective Tom Watkins of Animal Search UK, and children Evie, aged eight, Harvey, six, and Molly 14, created a video calling for the return of the family pet.
Thanks to the contacts, Minnie was traced to the Merthyr area of South Wales, and after negotiations with the people holding her, Mr Tennant bought the dog back from them.
He said: “We’re delighted to have her back. I always thought Minnie had been stolen, and thanks to our network of contacts, we were able to find out who had her, get in touch with them and buy her back. We’re grateful to everyone who helped us.”
He urged dog owners to keep a close eye on their pets. He said: “I’m as guilty as anyone of thinking ‘It won’t happen to us’, but dog stealing is real, and ity did happen to us. We’re just so pleased that we’ve got Minnie back.”
