Owner's thanks after being reunited with dog missing from Chapel-en-le-Frith
A pet owner has been reunited with her beloved dog after he went missing from Chapel-en-le-Frith.
Joanne Tomlinson had let her Pug Pedro out in the garden of a property on Ashbourne Lane on Sunday at around 7.15pm so he could go to the toilet.
But when Joanne called him in a couple of minutes later, he didn’t respond and when she went out to find him, he had disappeared.
Joanne and a group of family, friends and volunteers, had been out searching for Pedro ever since, even putting up posters and handing out fliers in the area today.
There were concerns Pedro had become one of the latest dogs to be stolen after a huge rise in dog thefts recently.
But thankfully, he was found safe well this afternoon after being discovered wandering around the garden of a nearby property.
Joanne said: “I can’t thank everyone enough for their help in getting him home.
"I met a stranger last night who walked for hours calling Pedro and looking for him. She was as wet and cold as I was and she didn’t have to help. Her name is Jodie and she lives on Ashbourne Lane, she’s a very special lady.
"I want to thank my family who did everything they could to bring Pedro home and I also want to thank Helen from Dobby’s dog walking because as soon as she heard Pedro was missing, she and her partner jumped in the car and helped look for him.
"I don’t think I’ll ever know where Pedro was but I am glad he’s home.”
