A devastated Glasgow family are appealing for help to trace their missing dog who, along with her canine brother, has become a huge hit on social medial platform Instagram.
Bella, a husky/collie cross is missing from the Newton/Cambuslang area of Glasgow after running off after a deer on the Clyde walkway last Friday (January 22).
Bella, who is two, and her brother Sausage are a huge hit on Instagram under the name ‘huskycollietwins’ and have almost 9,000 followers.
The two dogs have never spent a day apart and brother Sausage is incredibly sad without his trusted friend, and litter-mate, Bella.
Instead of being filled with posts and photos of their fun antics at home in Glasgow, their Instagram page is now filled with Bella’s missing poster and appeals for information.
Bella’s owners, Heather Ross (29) and Chris McCabe (30), have been doing everything possible since she went missing, including searching day and night, enlisting help from family and friends as well as help from a local lost dog group, leaving scent trails and food for Bella as well as having drones looking out for her.
Heather, who lives in Newton with partner Chris, said: “We just want her home, a piece of our family is missing. It’s unbearable and no matter what has happened, we need to know.”
With no sightings since Bella took off on her regular daily walk with Chris, in an area she knows well, her family understandably want to know what’s happened.
“We know that lost dogs often go into hiding, and that might be what she’s doing, but she could also have moved to a different area and we need people to look out for her. She is so well behaved, and normally sits by the edge of the pavement before crossing the road – this is so unlike her.
“She is a very pretty dog and we are hoping that she’s not been picked up by someone and stolen. She’s very distinctive though so we hope by getting her face out there for people to see we can find out what’s happened and get our girl home where she belongs.”
Bella, is microchipped, and flagged as missing, and she is also spayed, meaning she can’t be used for breeding.
“We would urge people to keep an eye out for Bella – whether that be out there on her own or if you see a dog matching her description with someone. Please let us know the details. We need her home more than anything, our family and our home isn’t the same without her.”
If anyone sees Bella, or a dog matching her description, please contact Heather and Chris by getting in touch on 07835 226027. Please don’t attempt to catch Bella as this may make her run, just call her owners immediately.
