The missing rescue dog.

First published in News

A RESCUE dog saved from a Romanian ‘death camp’ went missing on the first night in her new home.

Kate Munro is now appealing for help to trace her and bring her back to safety.

Kate supports the charity Band of Hope, which rescues dogs that are unwanted or have been mistreated.

She said: “In Romania thousands of dogs have been abandoned tortured and killed.

“It is now legal for the government to kill all dogs considered strays – even in charity shelters.

“Mine was rescued from a 'Death Camp' where she was due to be shot.

“She was starving, covered in infected bites and terrified.”

Kate’s rescue dog endured a five day journey through Europe to reach her new home but went missing in the Kingsmead and Leftwich area on her first night there, on May 9.

She has since been spotted in the Knutsford area.

Kate said: “She's a street dog and very scared and timid.

“She won't approach people in fact we will be lucky to see her – she will be under a hedge, in undergrowth, in flower beds or outbuildings.

“I'm asking for help – for everyone to keep their eyes open and report any sightings.

“Please don't try and catch her – she will run further and go to ground.

“If we can locate and feed her I can try and get her back or trap her with the help of the dog warden.

“She wont bite – she's very shy and sweet.”

Anyone with any information should ring Kate on 07766 751221.

Don't we have enough strays in this country, without importing them?

We all share this planet, regardless of species or location, I hope this animal is found soon and returned to their owners, where it will no longer be a stray and of no burden to yourself .

It's the people who buy cute little puppies and don't bother to train them, and then chuck 'em out because they mess up the furniture who are heartless, as are those that breed puppies in disgusting conditions to sell. I am an animal lover, and don't like to think of the suffering of animals being transported halfway around the world, but I do understand people wanting to help them.

I do hope this little dog is found soon and I shall certainly be watching out for it . I have had several "rescued" animals over the years and all have been well loved and given much love and happiness back in return. Stick to the saying "Do as you would be done by." and perhaps acts of cruelty would not be so commonplace.
