1,500 join hunt for dogs

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple have joined the search for two dogs that have been miss­ing from home for al­most five weeks.

Buster the pug and husky Luna haven’t been seen since be­fore Christ­mas, spark­ing fears they may have been stolen.

Owner Alex Wal­ton says she and her three daugh­ters have been left heart­bro­ken – and have begged any­one with in­for­ma­tion to ‘do the right thing’.

Two-year-old Buster and Luna, three, es­caped from their garden on Alt Road in Ash­ton-un­der-Lyne, Tame­side, on the morn­ing of De­cem­ber 5.

Later that day, the pair were spot­ted on Hartshead Pike – around an hour’s walk from their home. There have been no sight­ings since.

A ‘Find Buster and Luna’ Face­book group now has more than 1,500 mem­bers.

Ban­ners and posters have been put up, with vol­un­teers scour­ing the streets daily to try and find the dogs.

Alex, 28, said the an­i­mals are mi­crochipped, but fears they were stolen. “It’s heart­break­ing,” she said. “It feels like you’ve lost one of your kids, they are part of our fam­ily. I don’t know how I’m cop­ing to be hon­est, see­ing the kids so upset.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Alex on 07526 318 310.
