Charlton residents are being urged to keep their eyes peeled for an injured Bichon Frise who has been missing since February.

After being rescued from a puppy farm, “timid” Holly was given to a new family in Charlton, but disappeared three weeks later.

Her owners have been searching for her ever since with no luck - until a few days ago, when she was reportedly spotted by several people.

The pup is said to have appeared in Ankerdine Crescent, Woolwich, at about 9.30am on Sunday, April 22. Three people said they saw the pup but did not pick her up because she was dirty.

She was described as having “thick black marks on her body and a nasty neck wound.”

Witnesses also reported that she was struggling to walk as a result of her injuries.

A Facebook group has been set up to find Holly since she first went missing and people have been out looking for her since the sightings on Sunday, but have not found her yet.

A statement from the group said: “We urgently need the public’s help to locate Holly as she clearly needs vet treatment as soon as possible before she succumbs to her injuries.”

The group has urged people in the area to look out for any sightings of Holly so she can be returned to her owner.

They have advised anyone who sees Holly not to run towards her because she is very timid and likely to run away.

Anyone with any information of Holly’s whereabouts should call her owners on 07714670252 or 07702194148.
