International riders Pippa and William Funnell are appealing for the safe return of their two terriers (pictured) that have been missing since 17 December.

Pippa says she is devastated by the loss of the couple’s Jack Russell terriers, Fudgy and Toes, and is offering a £1,000 reward for the pair’s safe return.

Eleven-month-old Fudgy (pictured below) and five-year-old Toes (pictured top) disappeared from the couple’s home in Forest Green, near Dorking in Surrey, early in the morning. An extensive search of the surrounding area and the distribution of over 300 flyers and posters has so far lead to nothing.

“So far we have had no leads at all,” said Pippa. “I know everyone thinks I am mad but I have even been to see clairvoyants for help in tracing them.

“They have told me that they believe the dogs were taken by a couple in a dark car and are now living in a caravan. The only thing keeping me sane is believing that the dogs are being kept together.”

Pippa is asking for people to be on the look out andto get in contact if they have any information.

“Does anyone know someone who suddenly has two dogs who didn’t have them before – the dogs are very friendly and would go to strangers, especially the puppy Fudgy. ”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Pippa (tel: 07887 750280 or 07785 223114) or email: williamfunnell@aol.com
