Four months ago today, Izzy bolted out of her house – frightened by an alarm that was set off in her home when an unexpected builder opened the door.
When the builder tried to get a hold of her, she ran out of the house and the garden. And no one has been able to find her since.
She lived with her family in Radcliffe, Manchester. She has two human sisters who misses her. And they want her to come home.Wherever you are Izzy, please be safe. And we keep praying for a miracle – that one day you will find your way home to your family. They miss you.
May’s comment: We have been following Izzy’s story now for months and being in London we felt helpless – not knowing what to do to help. Her family has done everything they can think of and we all still believe Izzy is out there.
In the weeks following, there have been reported sightings of Izzy in the following areas: Outwood Road, Old Hall Road, Ringley Road, Stand Lane areas of Radcliffe (M26) and Whitefield (M45). However, she has not been sighted since 21st February.
There are many possible scenarios of what could have happened.
Maybe someone thought she was a stray dog and took her home.
Maybe someone picked her up and sold her on.
Maybe she’s still running in the fields.
Maybe, maybe, maybe – many questions remain unanswered.
And just maybe she’s no longer in the Radcliffe area, so we thought we can at least help by spreading this a little further.
Maybe she has been taken abroad. Dogs leaving the UK are not checked – only dogs entering the UK are checked.
If you have not already heard about Izzy, here are some thoughts when you’re reading this:
If you see a similar looking cockapoo that someone might have just adopted – keep Izzy in mind. Maybe ask the owners where she came from. They may not have known about Izzy.
If you know someone who has recently purchased a cockapoo that looks like Izzy, ask them to take her to the vets to check her microchip.
Or if you happen to come across Izzy when you are out and about, her family have asked that you do not approach her, due to her nervous character she will only flee again. Instead they have asked you to keep her in sight and contact them on 07961-559230 or 07956-034552.
Izzy belongs to a family. If you know where Izzy is, please let her go home.
