Still looking out for Levi
Disabled Steve’s despair as stolen dog still missing three months on

A WHEELCHAIR-bound man’s life has been thrown into despair and chaos following the theft of his beloved dog Levi nearly three months ago.

Steve Wilford from Scarborough, East Yorkshire was seriously injured in a bike accident five years ago and was hospitalised for a year, during which he underwent two complicated operations to save his life. He returned home as a wheelchair-bound quadraplegic.

However, Steve, 50, says: "My life improved tenfold in October 2004 when I acquired a soulmate in Levi, A Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Levi is my world, my whole life, from that first moment he has been my constant companion, with him by my side I could carry out basic daily living tasks.

"But on January 4th 2006, my world collapsed again when Levi disappeared from the garden of my home. It’s my belief that he was stolen. Levi's absence is causing such grief and worry that my physical health is suffering to a point where my stomach spasms are so severe that I am unable to sit safely in my wheelchair. I am so desperate to get Levi home safely."

Levi is an 18-month-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, an entire male, with a KC pedigree. He is microchipped. His coat is black/brindle very dark with tangerine chevrons; a white diamond shaped flash on his chest, long legged. Levi is very friendly.

If anyone has any information leading to he safe return of Levi, please contact Steve Wilford on tel.no: 07971 826405 or e-mail: stevewilford55@aol.com
