Tilly the Tibetan Terrier went missing whilst on a walk with her family on the 15th September in Long Hanborough, Oxfordshire
Despite over three months of extensive searching to find Tilly, there have been no confirmed sightings of her since the day she went missing. It is now presumed that she has been stolen and has been reported to the Thames Valley Police.
Tilly is such an important member of her family and they are absolutely devastated that she didn’t make it home in time for Christmas. Whilst this photo is a very recent image of Tilly, the family are urging people to keep an eye open for any dog that looks like Tilly as she may have been groomed to disguise her appearance. Tilly is microchipped. Were you sold a dog who looks like Tilly since mid- September? If so, we understand that you may already be very attached to her but her family miss her terribly.

Teddy, a chocolate brown Cockapoo went missing whilst out for a walk with his family near Ellesmere, Shropshire on 28th September 2018. Despite significant searching and an active social media campaign, Teddy still hasn’t been found. Teddy could now be anywhere in the UK and may also have been groomed to disguise his appearance. His family are pleading with anyone who knows anything, even if it’s not the good news they want to hear or has Teddy to please get in touch; their days are painful without their best friend and they are hoping for a New Year miracle that brings their beloved Teddy home. Teddy is microchipped and has been registered as missing with the chip company.

Willow, a female Sprocker escaped from her back garden in Much Wenlock, also in Shropshire with the other family dog on 17th September. The other dog reappeared in the family’s front garden but sadly Willow did not and Willow’s family are absolutely heartbroken. It is now believed that Willow could potentially have been found and kept as despite significant searching by the local community, no trace of Willow has ever been found. It is a legal requirement that any dog found, is reported to the local Dog Warden and the police. Willow is very much part of the family and went everywhere with her mum; it’s like her shadow has disappeared. The family are also asking for anyone with information to come forward and help reunite Willow. Willow is microchipped, which have been registered as missing/stolen and is spayed.
