Family's desperate plea for return of beloved family dog Suki

Solihull Editorial 2nd Aug, 2021   0

A DISTRAUGHT family are desperately appealing for any information on their missing dog.

Suki the Saluki went missing on July 19 and since then her whereabouts are unknown.

A white, four-year-old rescue dog, Suki is understood to have jumped over a fence at a kennels in Hampton in Arden in Solihull.

It is thought she left in pursuit of finding her owner, but never found her.

Despite tens of thousands of shares across social media, amazing support from the local community and constant on-the-ground searches in the local area – there have been no sightings of Suki since the morning she went missing.

Salukis are extremely fast and can run up to 40mph, so the family are increasingly concerned of how far Suki could have travelled, or where she may be hiding out.

Suki is normally inseparable from her owner, Tricia Henderson, of Leamington Spa. They have been together for 18months – right through the pandemic – and she loves nothing more than being by her side.

Suki has brought much needed happiness into the Henderson family, following the loss of Tricia’s husband and it means so much to her four children, their partners, and grandchildren that this kind, affectionate dog is found and comes home again.

“We are so desperate to bring Suki home,” said Tricia.

“It’s been two weeks since she left the kennels and we are all terribly worried and missing her.

“She doesn’t know the area and is 30 minutes from home, so needs our help to find her way back.

“I’m asking everyone to be a ‘nosey neighbour’ to take a look around your local area, search in any outside buildings, sheds, garages and check your CCTV or doorbell cameras.

“We desperately need sightings to try to help us find her. Please, please, if you think you’ve seen her, get in touch. It could be through you that we bring her home to her family.”

Suki was adopted from the Dogs Trust, having originally grown up in Ireland.

Whilst with her previous owners in Ireland she ran away for four days, but the owner didn’t want her back. Suki has a number of scars from this period and has a nervousness around new people and other dogs, so it is wise to approach with caution, and in particular to speak softly and avoid eye contact. Lure with food, if possible, throwing away from you and not directly to the dog.
