A GENEROUS reward has been offered for the return of a dog who went missing the day he was fostered.
Emily Woolger and her fiancé Sean Restall were devastated after Corgi-cross pup Freddie went missing last week between 11.30pm on Monday and 5am on Tuesday from their home in Hampshire Street, Buckland, Portsmouth.
The pair had just fostered the two-year-old dog after he was rescued from Romania by Love4Dogs.
Emily said: ‘He was only with us for one night before he vanished out of the cat flap and now he has been missing for a week and we are so worried.’
Charity Love4Dogs, which is based in Poole, has since received an anonymous generous donation to offer as a reward for the safe return of Freddie.
Emily, 51, said: ‘Our social media appeal has gone crazy and we have over 600 people on our Facebook page.
‘It has been amazing that so many people have come out to help us search and shared the appeal and Portsmouth truly has great community spirit.
‘We are hoping the reward will entice more people out as with a week gone by people are not coming out quite so much so we hope with money being mentioned people will be extra vigilant and help more.’
Along with a group of others, Emily and Sean have spent every night searching for Freddie and received a tip from a runner that the pup was near Hilsea Lido.
Emily added: ‘We went to the lido and searched through the bushes and left food out to tempt him and just hope that we can find him.’
