AN IRISH Red & White Setter bred from an Irish Champion sire is missing, believed stolen, after he disappeared near his Dublin home two weeks ago.
‘Cuddy’, a two year-old Irish Red and White Setter who works in the field disappeared from his home in the Tallaght area, on June 15th. His owners have put up posters, contacted the Garda, local dog wardens, vets and the rangers in the Dublin Mountains national park.
Cuddy is well known to he rangers as he did grouse counting for them this year. Information was also circulated at the recent Swords Show.
Cuddy’s owner said: "We just can’t think of anything more we can do. He is such a striking dog that people would notice him. The kind of dog that if you walk down the road with him on a lead people stop and turn round for another look or talk to you. His sire is Irish Annual Champion 2004, a very beautiful dog and Cuddy is very much like his dad, just slightly taller. That’s why its so strange there have been no sightings of him since the afternoon he went missing, other than having been seen outside the local school at Tallaght soon after he got out."
Cuddy is not microchipped, nor was he wearing a tag when he disappeared.
