Owner of dog missing in Bury St Edmunds 'overwhelmed' by community response

The owner of a dog missing in Bury St Edmunds has been 'overwhelmed' by the support from the community and their offers of help to find his beloved pet.

Tony Borrer, 77, has been looking for crossbreed Rhen since Wednesday afternoon when she escaped after his partner Mary fell outside Pets at Home on the Moreton Hall estate.

Rhen slipped out of her lead after being taken into Pets at Home and there have been numerous sightings of her on the estate but no-one has been able to catch her.


She was spotted this morning, not far from where she went missing, and Tony, of Thetford , rushed there in the hope of being reunited with Rhen.

He said: "Someone said she's trying to find her way back to me to where we lost her.

"I came to Pets at Home car park and stayed there for two or three hours last night and the night before I was there until 11pm.


"About 30 to 40 people have called me to say they've seen her and is there anything they can do to help.

"The trouble is I don't know the area. I live in Thetford so it takes me half an hour to get there.

"All I can say to people is don't chase her because she will run. If you can coax her with something she might come to you.

"Everyone else seems to see her but me. If I could see her I'm sure I could coax her."

Rhen, a rescue dog from Romania, is about two-years-old and is black and tan with a white chest.

Tony, who has had her for several months, added: "I've been totally overwhelmed by the response (from the community).

"I've never known anything like this. It does get me, you can't help get a bit tearful over it."

If you see Rhen, contact Tony on 07710790649.
