Heartbroken Hull grandad’s emotional message to thieves who took his dog

A Hull grandfather is appealing for help to reunite him with his faithful four-legged companion of 11 years.

Ray Hunt, 76, says he feels “lost” since Bramham the Jack Russell went missing from his Willerby home more than two months ago.

He has now made an emotional plea for help in trying to find the white dog, which has distinctive brown ears.

Mr Hunt said: “Bramham is part of my family. He was bought for me by my children as a Father’s Day present.

“He is such a little treasure. He doesn’t have a bad bone in his body. He would always play with my grandchildren.

“He was just a little happy dog and I feel lost without him. Every time I go out in the morning I just hope he is going to turn up.”

Bramham disappeared from the outside yard at his home in Main Street, Willerby on March 25. Mr Hunt said: “He used to love being outside and looking at what was going on.

“There were no signs of any forced entry and there was no way he could escape because of the five-foot wall so I feel someone has come in and lifted him out of the yard.”

Mr Hunt is appealing to anyone who has Bramham to look after him.

He said: “If they have seen him or taken him then please just keep him warm and fed, I will sleep well with that. If anyone has been cruel to him I will be very annoyed.”

Mr Hunt’s daughter Alex has since set up the Missing Bramham Facebook group to try and find the popular pet.

There have been sightings of Bramham in the east Hull area but he has still not been returned to his rightful owner.

Miss Hunt said: “Dad is 76 now and he can’t go wandering the streets looking for him.
