Dog owner thanks readers in puppy search

The owner of a puppy that has been missing for over a fortnight has this week thanked readers of for helping her in the search for her much-loved pet.

A notice was placed on's forums here within hours of owner Victoria Aldworth, pictured, placing dozens of posters around the town in a desperate search for missing ten-month-old puppy Benjy.

"Since the message appeared on's forums, the messages of support and help I have received from readers has been superb," she said. "I can't praise the website enough."

"I've received lots of helpful information about sightings of Benjy too and readers have been out searching between Brean and Burnham. Their positivity has kept me going during a very difficult period and I feel confident that Benjy will be found."

The dog is a black Springer Spaniel cross Labrador with a red collar and is described as being slim with short legs and a glossy coat. He is microchipped and has a white mark under his chin.

Victoria added: "He is a nervous dog, so rather than approaching him and scaring him away, I would urge people to give me a call if they sight him."

Victoria has already found three stray dogs in her search for missing Benjy, but hopes the next dog to be found will be hers.
