Fingers crossed it may help. Several years ago a collie which vanished from Hanley from just outside the front door of the house its builder owner was working on was reunited via a Sentinel ad. A young lad apparently believed it to be lost and took it home with him to Fenton, telling his parents he'd been given it! It was only when the parents then saw the advert with photo a few days later that they realised the dog's owner was frantically looking for it, and thankfully they got in touch. We always imagine people would take a dog to be checked for a microchip but sadly that's not always the case. Someone may perhaps have misguidedly thought that Myrtle would make a nice present for a relative who may be oblivious to the fact that she already has an owner. So do keep spreading the word as much as possible ... posters in pubs would be good too if not already done x
Thanks Gaynor we've done all of that apart Friday m sentinel so we will give that a go. Xx
I'm really sorry to hear that. If there have been no sightings and you've checked with the dog warden and all the local dogs homes without success, you need to get as much publicity as possible in case she's been stolen .... Radio Stoke, Signal Radio, definitely an ad in the Sentinel Lost & Found column etc. Sentinel may be happy to do a feature if Myrtle went missing in unusual circumstances. Also post on Stoke Lost and Found page on Facebook if not already done. And lots of posters locally. The more publicity the better. I do hope she's home with you soon, she looks a little treasure in her photo.
No news at all. We are truly devastated 😢😢
Any news yet of little Myrtle?
