A MAN from Dundalk is now offering a reward of e1,000 for the return of his beloved dog who may have been stolen and put into a dog-fighting ring or puppy farm.
John Kehoe from Faughart issued an appeal for the return of his three-year-old Irish soft-coated wheaten terrier called ‘Jack’ a few weeks ago.
However, no-one has come forward with any information about Jack’s whereabouts so John has decided to offer a reward of e1,000 if the dog is returned to him.
“We have issued a county-wide appeal but we haven’t had any phonecalls or tip-offs. There have been no sightings of Jack. He seems to have disappeared without a trace,” said John.
Jack went missing from his home in Faughart on Saturday, July 23 just 20 minutes after he was let out of the house and into the garden.
“The day he disappeared Jack had been prepared for the Dundalk Dog Show. My 16-year-old daughter had planned to do the Junior handling classes in Dundalk in the hope of qualifying for Cruft’s Dog Show,” he said.
“The disappearance of the dog has caused my daughter much anxiety and upset, as it has done to all the family. The ISPCA now fears for Jack’s safety as he has not been sighted.
“They think he may have been put into a dog-fighting ring or sold to a puppy breeding farm. We are hoping someone kind found him and that they think he’s too nice to hand into the pound.”
