My dog, Coco, is lost.
She went missing overnight between 30 and 31 December 2013 from the boarding kennels where we had placed her (for safekeeping) while we had a week at the beach. The kennels are in an area completely unfamiliar to her, about 15km away, and I have my doubts she can find her own way home.
Coco was lost from Sherbrooke Road, Willawong in Brisbane, Australia. We live in Kenmore.
Coco is a small/medium sized spoodle (poodle x cocker spaniel). She is black with a white chest and chin. She was clipped about three weeks ago. This photo is of her on Christmas Day.
We have listed Coco on the RSPCA lost listing. We have listed her at the pound and with the Brisbane City Council. She is listed on the Qld Lost Pet Register on Facebook, and with many other Facebook pages. She is listed as lost on Gumtree. I have friends and family sharing my Facebook posts to spread the word. The kids and I drove around Willawong, Durack, and Inala this morning putting posters along the main roads and in parks. My husband ran (in extreme heat) from the kennels to home, looking for her this morning. At this stage I don't know what more to do.
Coco is a much-loved family member. We miss her. I just hope that a nice person has taken her into their home and that they will eventually bring her to the pound, or a vet, or the RSPCA to return her to us.
Update 5 Jan 2014: We have been searching daily, we have broadened the search and still no word of Coco. I have shared more on Facebook and Twitter. I have spoken to people in the area and put up more lost notices. We advertised in the newsclassifieds and received no response. We will continue to search for our missing family member. My girls are missing their dog so much, and I'm sure that Coco misses us as well.
If you know where Coco is, please call RSPCA on 1300 36 37 36 and quote Pet ID 764791. They have her listed on Pet D Tect for us.
Our hearts are breaking.
