Help Find Margie and Ruby

On June 23th June 2023, Angela and Giles went for a walk with their beloved Norfolk Terriers, Margie and Ruby. They all returned home, and enjoyed the rest of the day, unaware that was the last day they would spend together.

On the 24th June 2023, Angel and Giles walked their dogs as usual. But when they returned home, Margie and Ruby were stolen from the garden.

Despite a huge effort to publicise the girls' plight, they remain missing. Giles and Angela are living in an excruciating limbo. The couple don't know whether their girls are being cared for, or neglected - or even abused. Each day offers the hope of seeing their babies again, only for that dream to be crushed again and again.

In their dogs' absence, Giles and Angela have encountered other lost dogs, unscrupulous individuals - and, cheeringly, lovely people who have supported and helped them. They remain hopeful, and appreciative of all the help they are given.
