Ellie’s story

In October 2018 all was normal for Ellie & her doting dad. 19th October was a normal Friday, they were off to work together & looking forward to a weekend of adventures.

However, at the end of the day’s work on that fateful day, Ellie’s dad popped her in his van whilst he packed away his tools, and in those few minutes Ellie was cruelly snatched from the van & has not been seen since

Ellie is microchipped & there is a stolen alert on her record, dog wardens, holding kennels & vets nationwide were notified that Ellie is missing. Ellie’s family & friends continued to search tirelessly for her every day, her bowls stayed where she last used them

The help from Ellie’s supporters was been overwhelming, and whilst it was devastating that a year went by & Ellie was still missing, it was the support & help from so many people that really helped to keep the hope that Ellie could be found & every day we hoped that today will be the day!

Amazingly today was that very day & Ellie is safely back with her dad safe & well!!  There is an ongoing police investigation so we hope people will understand that we are not able to disclose any details of her recovery but I am sure that everyone will be thrilled with the happy news!
