A HAMPSHIRE woman has gone viral after posting a heartbreaking video appealing for help to find her lost dog near Basingstoke.

Jo Bundy-Vickery, 41, from Yateley, shared the post on Facebook Sunday, August 2, and has received an overwhelming response from the community.

I’m dreading put this out there but I feel I need to.

On the video posted all over social media, Jo said: “I am Gizmo’s mum and wanted people to know what we are going through in the hopes that if anyone knows anything about her whereabouts, you will come forward.

“We have had Gizmo for seven and a half years since she was a puppy and our children have grown up with her.

“We are not ready to never see her again, so please if anyone knows anything at all to do with where Gizmo is, please come forward.

“I would like to thank the community for everything that has been done. Please do the right thing if you have her and get Gizmo home.”

The 41-year-old told The Gazette: “Gizmo went missing on July 16 between 5 and 6.30pm in the evening from our home.

“I was sitting out the front with the children playing and came inside and noticed the gate had been left open.

“I couldn’t find the dog anywhere and shouted around the road, and everyone came together to help find her.

“I searched the cupboards, beds and checked the shed but there was nothing.”

The mother-of-three gathered a search party of 13 to help find Gizmo in the woodlands, but they were unable to find her.

Gizmo was described by her owner as small, with grey chin hair and has rods in her legs.

Speaking about the stress of losing Gizmo, Jo said: “She is part of the family and sleeps with my son at night, who is not dealing very well with her sudden departure.

“It’s heart-breaking for all of us and strange not hearing her feet pit pat on the floor in the house.

“It’s the not knowing where she is, with no CCTV sightings of her at all.

“Deep down, I feel someone has got her,” she added.

Jo has knocked on every single door on the estate and posted adverts of Gizmo all over the internet.

The owner has created a Facebook page, Get Gizmo Home.

And there is a GoFundMe page, where Jo is trying to raise a target of £200, to find her missing pug.
