Tess is a black CCRxGret but she looks like a black labradoodle. She went missing or was taken from Nairn in Scotland on Wednesday 23rd July.

We don't know whereabouts in the country she is now. sad

She was wearing her collar with Guide Dog tags. She is microchipped and spayed.

As she is a Guide Dog, she is very important to her owner Fraser, as well as being very much loved and missed.

I am a guide dog puppywalker, and so I am helping Fraser find her to get her returned to him as soon as possible.

Guidedogs have set up a phoneline that is staffed 24/7 so if you see a black dog with very curly fur please make a note of where, when and ring them please 0800 6888409. Especially if it is with someone who you didn't realise had a black dog

If you want further updates you can search #TESS on twitter or @gdpuppywalking

BTW if MNetters don't recognise my name it's probably cos my DS (kangaboy) is now 19 and at Uni, so I haven't been on here for a while. Incase you are wondering what the RT bit means I used to do a RadioTimes TV alerts to the best TV on each day for fellow MNetters .

Please help find Tess

Thank you x

Hey Kanga, this is shocking - poor Tess and her owner. Will spread the word.

Nice to see you but wish the circs were different! Can't believe Kangaboy is 19... wow.

Bumping. Hope Tess is home soon.

OneStepCloser Fri 01-Aug-14 22:35:08

Oh no, I hope Tess is found soon, both Tess and her owner must be fraught.

RTKangaMummy Fri 01-Aug-14 22:41:40

Thanks guys

Yes Edam it is really weird to think of him nearly finishing being a teenager

It would be really deffo brill if MN could help get Tess back home

The power of MN is very strong x

If you notice a neighbour or other person that has been to Scotland and come back with a black dog.

Please look out for a black dog with curly fur when you are out at the park, or woods with your children

She could be anywhere in the country.

Thank you so much x

Will try to spread the word, this is awful. I so hope that she and her owner can be reunited soon.

SecretWitch Thu 07-Aug-14 05:18:21

Evening bump from the US. Sending hope that Tess and her owner will be reunited very soon.

Would it help to put this on another board instead (or as well if that's allowed)? Chat maybe - does that have a bit more "traffic"?

RTKangaMummy Thu 14-Aug-14 01:12:52 This is an audioboo made from Fraser Tess' owner talking about her and his limitations on his life without her

He just wants her back safely - whoever has her will NOT get into trouble We just want her back again safely via being dropped off at vets/police/rescue centre or ring 0800 68 88 409 this line is run by GUIDE DOG staff 24/7

If a friend or neighbour has suddenly got a new black dog especially if it looks like a labradoodle please ring that number

PETS AT HOME BOSSES are offering a donation reward for information that leads to Tess safe return (more details on guidedogs website)

I repeat we do not want arrests but do want #TESS back with Fraser
