Yoda, an adult male Blue Fawn Chihuahua, disappeared with another family pet from his family's garden on February 15 at around 8.30am.

Emma Hackney, 26, a mother of three from Danefield Road, off Norman Road, Abington, said: "He went out into the garden in the morning with Maple, our other Chihuahua. We think they went out under the gate and possibly ran out onto the street.

"They normally come straight back when In call them but I couldn't see them anywhere. The kids and I went up and down the street calling for them but they didn't come back.

"This is all very unusual behaviour. They're normally so timid and would just stand there shaking.

"I worry someone has taken him."

Emma and her family put up missing posters around their area in the hope someone would bring the dogs back.

Then, on February 16, a woman called and said she had found Maple.

Emma said: "A lady found her outside her house and took her in and gave h er some dinner. When she saw one of the missing posters she called us to say she'd found her.

"It gives me hope that Yoda can still be brought home."

Yoda is still missing. Emma worries her posters have been taken down by the high winds during Storm Doris on Thursday (February 23).

She said: "He's a very distinctive looking Chihuahua. He is a tiny, tiny dog with massive ears and big eyes, with a grey stripe down his back and a really curly tail.

"I hope someone just has them in their home and haven't seen a poster yet. If we can spread the word then someone might see his picture and bring him home."

A cash reward has been offered for his safe return.
