Ghost’s tragic story featured in the Daily Mail.

A dog owner says she is ‘devastated’ after her five month old labradoodle was found dead after going missing from a dog day care centre.

Andrea Pothier’s puppy Ghost was discovered lying at the side of a busy road, just yards from the company’s enclosure.

Some 100 people had joined in the hunt for the dog and spent 10 days around the City Paws Club site near Chessington, Greater London.

But despite the extensive search, and a social media campaign that won support from around the world, Ghost’s body was spotted by a motorist on the A3.

Ms Pothier, 36, of Fulham, south London, told Mailonline that she is now seeking to take legal action against the company.

She said: ‘I was completely and utterly devastated.

‘It was really emotional. Someone else lost my dog and for 10 days I was devoting myself to finding him. For it to end like that was heartbreaking.

‘I think for a while, I have been too upset to be angry, Now I am angry.

‘We had 100 people helping with the search, I have 2000 messages of condolences on his page from all over the world. Everyone is angry and upset.

‘It is completely unforgivable. He was like my child.’

Andrea and her partner Ivor O’Toole, 45, left Ghost with City Paws Club for a trial day on March 6.
