39 search and rescue volunteers have entered caves on the edge of Plymouth as part of an operation to look for Pudding, a therapy dog.
The four-month- old miniature Dachshund has been missing since Sunday. The owners of the pup have put out a desperate plea for people to keep a lookout. Pudding was last seen in Kitley Woods, Yealmpton.
Pudding is a therapy puppy at Plymouth and District Funeral Services in Plymstock and puts those who are anxious and upset at ease.
Volunteers from Devon Cave Rescue Organisation have now joined in the search.
A spokesman for DCRO said: “The team were approached by UAV Lost Dog Searchas they had information that Pudding may be in a cave system in the area she went missing.”
Searches are continuing. Last night, Rachel Burnett, who has been helping in the search, said: “Another full day and evening looking for pudding but again nothing, other cave entrances have been check and other areas checked again . Sorry still no Pudding.”
If you spot Pudding, please call Plymouth and District Funeral Services on 01752 407100.
