COOLOOLA Cove woman Lisa Jones has been told by two animal psychics and an anonymous informant her lost dog has been stolen by a young woman living in central Gympie.

Ms Jones' beloved pet, Leroy, a seven-month-old Papillion dog, was stolen shortly after the carer moved to Cooloola Cove about three months ago.

So desperate to be reunited with her best friend, Ms Jones has turned to two separate animal psychics to try and track Leroy down.

The animal lover contacted one psychic two months ago and just this week had a second reading in a bid to pinpoint Leroy's location.

Both psychics relayed the same information - that a young woman in her late teens or early 20s was in possession of the dog in central Gympie.

"I feel he is so close yet so far," Ms Jones said.

Adding further credence to the information supplied by the two psychics is an anonymous caller her two weeks ago made contact with Ms Jones saying the same thing.

"I was told a woman took the dog from my yard in Cooloola Cove," Ms Jones said.

Leroy suffers from a small hernia on his stomach which is visible and Ms Jones has made contact with veterinary surgeries in Gympie and surrounding districts hoping her pet's wrongful owner had sought medical attention.

"Nothing," Ms Jones said. "This woman hasn't take Leroy to any vets that I know of."

Leroy's owner has "bombed" Cooloola Cove and Gympie in her precious free time with flyers looking for her lost dog, spending every spare cent on printing costs.

Ms Jones said she knew Leroy was loveable but appealed for the person responsible for his disappearance to "do the right thing".

"If you love him so much, just realise his family does too," Ms Jones said.

Ms Jones has asked anyone who may know something about Leroy to contact her on 0488 993 289.

"Surely someone has seen something or knows something," Ms Jones said.
