Dog snatch fears for Hailsham family: couple could hold key to solving mystery disappearance of pet Chihuahua

A hunt for a distinctive dog which went missing in mysterious circumstances has been launched by a distraught Hailsham family

The Saint family are hoping to find the couple who were last seen with their three-year-old Chihuahua in a bid to find the dog.

The dog, called Pepsi, was last seen on the afternoon of Sunday, October 14.

Mum Louise Saint is convinced the couple hold the key to solving the mystery and reuniting the family with their beloved pet, but does not believe they stole the dog.

The dog was last seen with the couple who were described as being in their early 20s, with dark hair, and being tall and attractive by the Saint’s neighbours.

The woman was seen to get in a blue car around the time the dog went missing on the afternoon of Sunday, October 14.

Mrs Saint said: “We miss her so much. She is a sought after dog. We just want her back.”

The pure breed pedigree Chihuahua is described as being tan and white in colour with a medium coat, long ears and a long tail.
