Pensioner appeals for continued search of missing dog

Skye is still missing.

A pensioner has appealed to the people of Wigtownshire to continue a search for missing dog, Skye.

The collie slipped her lead on October 22 near Monreith while visiting with her owners from Manchester.

And now worried local Irene Warne from Whauphill has called for everyone in the area to help with the hunt for the timid rescue dog.

She said: “Her [Skye’s] nervous nature, being a cruelly-treated resce dog, is making it difficult. Please help her owner – now staying in a caravan in Glenluce – to be on the spot if she is seen again.

“So many people were here on Sunday, some from Dumfries, and I am a 76-year old pensioner but I will stay out all night if I can hlp.”

Dog handlers, local residents, friends of owners Carole and Luke, animal-lovers and countryside rangers were all out in force over the weekend and despite several alleged sightings of Skye, she has still not been cornered.

She was taken in as a rescue dog and is wary of humans, which is hampering the rescue effort. She is thought to have been seen looking somewhat bedraggled in Glenluce, which is where the search is now being centred.
