Resident draws on pet psychic to locate missing dog
CARTERS Ridge animal lover Eva Maunder has approached an American pet psychic in a desperate bid to track down her missing pet.
Ruby, a 14-month blue and white American staffy, went missing on Thursday last week on Ms Maunder's property.
The Carters Ridge resident had gone for a walk with Ruby on her 25-acre property when the dog wandered away.
"The dog disappeared for a little while but it didn't seem too worrying," she said.
Ms Maunder's concern began when she heard a gunshot.
It's unclear if the dog was shot at and possibly killed or injured, or scampered away in fear.
Since then, the animal has not been seen.
"I've walked the property many times looking," she said.
With no sign of Ruby, Ms Maunder's daughter Caitlin decided to reach out on the internet and made contact with an American pet psychic.
An online consultation followed and Ms Maunder and her daughter were told not to give up hope.
"We were told the dog was still alive and had been taken in a white van near the Kandanga area," Ms Maunder said.
"They said we shouldn't give up and put up notices - keep trying."
It's good advice and the pair has since displayed notices all over the surrounding area hoping the psychic's insight is correct.
The American staffy is microchipped and had a collar with council registration details before going missing.
