Bill has not been seen since he disappeared on Tuesday, April 12 from Harrow Road, Barking.

The nine-year-old black and white Jack Russell, which is neutered and micro-chipped, was wearing a brown dog vest, when he went missing.

Owner Vidas Sablinskas, 53, said: “I miss him so much, I think about him everyday. I have got another puppy, but he is not a replacement and will never replace him. I’m just hoping someone will find him and bring him home.”

Vidas and his friends have been posting messages on social media, searching the streets, putting up flyers and he is now offering a reward for Bill’s return.

Friend Sarah Davies said: “We will never give up looking for him, unless we are shown proof that he is no longer with us.

“We just want him home where he belongs.”

Both are extremely worried about Bill’s health as he suffers from a skin condition and needs medication. “It’s been a long time, if he hasn’t been given his medication, he could be very sick by now,” Sarah added.
