Yorkshire’s furry friends unite in aid of missing Murphy

Get Murphy Home City Park Meet

Pups wear ‘Get Murphy Home’ coats in Bradford’s City Park.

Dog owners from across Yorkshire have come together today to help find a missing Siberian Husky from Bradford.

Murphy, who has been microchipped, slipped from his collar on 4 December in Scholemoor Cemetery.

Murphy is still missing.

He didn’t come back as he usually does and is believed to have been abducted a couple of hours after going missing.

Ever since his disappearance, a campaign launched by his owners named ‘Get Murphy Home’ has gathered support from people across the UK.

Murphy’s owners recently decided to take the campaign a step further.

They put a call out to other dog owners to come together in Bradford’s City Park and help find the missing pup.

Photos of Murphy were also shown on the Big Screen at 11pm.

Murphy’s owner, Andy Smith, said: “I wanted to reach people who didn’t have social media, and I wanted people to see how dog lovers pull together when a family pet is stolen.

“It was also done to raise awareness about the amount of dog thefts that are going on, not just in Bradford or Yorkshire but all over the country.”

There is a £1,500 reward for Murphy’s return.

If you have seen him or have any details about his whereabouts, please contact Andy on 07759851895.
