Two search parties - one setting off at 6am and one at 9am - will be trying to find a blind and deaf dog after his owner believes he was stolen.

Following an appeal on our website and a special Facebook page dedicated to finding Goochie the public has stepped forward to offer their help in looking for the 16 year old dog.

Susan Harrison said: “I can’t believe the response, people have been amazing offering help. He is my baby I just want him back. He is not well and he needs to spend his last days with me. I’ve had him since he was 10 weeks old. To not have him here with us is breaking my heart.”

A special Facebook page has been set up for Goochie the male Shiba Inu which has already had sightings reported at Bretton cemetery and one at Paston in Peterborough where a lady saw a dog looking like him being walked on a piece of string as a lead by a woman in her twenties.

Susan said: “The lady went up to her and asked about the dog which seemed nervous. She was told it was a female and it struggled to walk but was reluctant to talk and walked off toward the shops.”

“My young grand daughter keeps crying. He can barely walk and has a heart condition. I am offering a reward and will not prosecute or take things any further. I just want my dog back.”

Susan and her partner left him in a secure pen in a kennel in the garden of her partner’s farm at Thorney Dyke while they went to a wedding on Saturday May 16.

A workman was at the home until 6pm but by the time they got home from the wedding at 11pm the dog was gone.

She said: “There’s no way he would have broken out. He wouldn’t have gone far as he would be disorientated. I believe he has been stolen.

“Please anybody who knows where he is, hvae a heart, please bring him back to us.”

The brown, beige and white dog is microchipped but Susan is not sure if the contact numbers are up to date. He has a mark on his eye where it seeps.

She has put up posters in the local area, has listed him on the Dog Lost UK website and also on Facebook where Goochie has his own page called Lost Dog Goochie Shiba Inu.

If you want to join the search tomorrow (Saturday 23) or have seen Goochie please contact Susan on 07702-287055.
