A FAMILY are desperate to find their beloved lost dog and have even called on a town scout group to help find him.
Alix the cross-breed terrier rescue dog went missing form his home in Foxglove Close, Bishop Cuthbert, Hartlepool, about a month ago.
His devastated owners, the Williams family, have tried everything to find him, including searching for him themselves, visitng vets and dog pounds, ringing the police and even putting an advert in the Hartlepool Mail.
But their efforts have proved fruitless and Alix is still nowhere to be found.
Andrea Williams, 47, an NHS worker, says she has paid the 40th Hartlepool Scout Group £50 to hand out leaflets bearing Alix’s picture and details when they carry out a bag pack at Asda, in Marina Way, on December 22.
The 47-year-old, who is mum to Lauren, 24, and George, 15, says on the same day she is also going to bombard social networking site Facebook with details of her beloved pet.
And she says the clock is ticking on finding the dog as the family are moving house in the New Year. She would also appreciate any eagle-eyed readers to keep their eye out for the 10-year-old gingery-tan coloured canine, who has a white patch on his chest, is about 20 inches high, and has benign lumps on his front left leg and one on his right ribs.
