Dog owner spends £6k on flyer printing as pet goes missing

June 21, 2011 by  

A dog owner from London has spent over £6,000 on newspaper advertising, flyer and poster printing after losing her pet dog in the Essex region.

Angela Bruce lost Pathos, her Shiba Inu dog six months ago when visiting her mother’s home in Pitsea over Christmas. Since then, Pathos has not been seen and Angela has been frantic with worry, which has led her to spend large amounts of money on measures that might aid a reunion with her beloved pet.

Miss Bruce told local Essex newspaper The Echo that she spends around £800 on appeals in newspaper advertisements each month and these run alongside the 3,000 posters that she had printed and distributed around Pitsea and its neighbouring areas. So far there have been no real leads as to the whereabouts of the dog as a result of the flyer printing. Areas like Chelmsford, Basildon, Colchester and the wider Essex region are searched every other week as Miss Bruce travels to visit her mother in the hope that she might spot her missing pet.

Miss Bruce is allowing advertising via posters, flyers and newspapers to keep her hope of a reunion with Pathos alive. She told The Echo:

“I always think if I advertise there’s just a slim chance someone will see him.”

She also has a Facebook page dedicated to finding the dog which has seen almost 2,000 people ‘like’ the page to follow her progress and help out where possible.

Miss Bruce does not have any other pets and is appealing for anyone with information on the whereabouts of her dog to come forward.
