A FAMILY is celebrating after a 10-day search to find their missing dog ended with a joyful reunion.
Roselyn Wragg, aged 31, led a desperate search for her one-eyed pet Odie after he escaped from her back garden on Valley Road, Killamarsh.
The mum-of-three put up 200 posters, pestered dog walkers, and set-up an internet campaign in a bid to find the five-year-old Lhasa Apso.
She was losing hope after chasing down dozens of leads when a call led her to a house a few streets away.
Odie, who had lost his collar when he escaped under the garden fence, was found safe and well.
“We are so glad to get him back,” said Ros, wife to Jonny and mum to Joe, 12, Kimberley, nine, and Ella, five.
“There were plenty of tears and the kids are overjoyed. I can’t believe how helpful everyone has been. I’ve had lots of calls from people who read the story in The Star and we got 680 members of the Facebook group.
“One woman I had never met even put a notice on her work intranet. People have been so kind. We are going to get Odie a girlfriend so he can start a family of his own.”
