Have your say

A FAMILY are appealing for information about their much-loved missing dog.

Snickers, a brown cocker spaniel, disappeared on Boxing Day from the garden of a house in Bradford Road, Pudsey.

The four-year-old was being cared for while owners Brian McCook, wife Allyn and one-year-old son Conor were in the United States over Christmas visiting family.

Dr McCook, from Headingley, has now mounted a search across Leeds with the help of friends and local people.

“We are distraught by Snickers disappearance and since returning back home we have been trying to do everything in our power to spread the word about Snickers,” he said.

Snickers has a white bib and white-tipped nose and toes. She may need medical attention. Flyers have been distributed, a Facebook group has been set up at Help Find Snickers and details are on www.doglost.co.uk. A reward is on offer for information leading to Snickers being found.

Anyone with information can contact 07900 676606 or call the Doglost.co.uk helpline, anonymously, on 0844 800 3220.
