A family left “devastated” after the loss of their dog said they are feeling “overwhelmed” by the support of the community.

Pippa, a five-year-old pure breed black Miniature Schnauzer, disappeared from her home in Granton Avenue, Upminster, on Friday and has not been seen since.

Her owner Pamela told the Recorder work was being carried out in the house and Pippa must have escaped while material was delivered to the property before her son came home at 2pm.

But since her disappearance, the whole community has been working together to find Pippa.

A Facebook group, which now has more than 400 members, was created and residents have organised to distribute leaflets, put up posters in local businesses and contact dog charities and groups in the area.

“It’s just incredible the support that we have had. It’s overwhelming really,” said Pamela.

“People are offering to go into shops and hand out leaflets. One person, who is house-bound even offered to put posters into plastic envelops for us - it’s amazing,” she said.

Pamela added her second dog Diz, also a black Miniature Schnauzer which the family got a year after Pippa, was “truly missing her”.

“We will consider offering a reward. We are so desperate to get her back. She is part of the family,” she said.

If you have seen Pippa or have any information of her whereabouts, you can contact 07399408305 or 07508826713.
