A FAMILY from Durrington have issued a desperate appeal for the return of their 11-month-old Northern Innuit puppy after he ran off in Larkhill nearly three weeks ago.

Teddy’s owner Lindsey Hiscocks says she fears someone has taken him in after he chased after something on a walk two miles north of Larkhill on August 15.

Ms Hiscocks has three of the dogs, and while they all chased off after something at the same time the other two returned.

Teddy was spotted by a pheasant farmer the day after, but has not been seen since.
