In my my short time volunteering for DogLost, no family appeal has haunted me more than Sham’s. Caroline, Sham’s mama has an eloquence I could only wish for and her “letter to whoever has Sham” is a soul bearing testament to how much she loves her.
Sham lived with her family in Radcliffe, Manchester and was central to the family. She was always there for Caroline through her pregnancy, loving nothing more than sitting on her tummy and eating apple and was also the reason why her son laughed for the first time.
Sadly, 14 happy years together was brought to a painful and abrupt end when Sham managed to escape through the front door of her home on 3rd June 2017 after a visitor called to see the family.
They searched the area extensively for Sham but she was never found, she was never reported as found to the local dog warden and there were no dog-related traffic accidents reported – it’s like she walked out of the door that day and disappeared.
The family know that time isn’t on Sham’s side and if she is still alive, she’ll be a very old lady now, so if by some complete miracle you are reading this and know where Sham is or what happened to her, on behalf of the family I plead with you to get in touch. It’s only fair after the years of happiness and laughter she brought to her family, Sham is returned to her family in her golden years or the family are given some closure.
