Dozens of people have turned out to help search for a tiny chihuahua that went missing in Royston after being chased by another dog.
Heartbroken Kaz Wagland has been moved to tears by the numbers of fellow dog owners that have joined her search for the much loved two-year-old pet, which vanished on Sunday, September 28.
“I can’t believe the response I have had. I don’t know how I’m ever going to repay everybody,” said Kaz, who runs her own dog walking business.
Little Lulu bolted when she was chased by a black labrador during a walk close to South End, Bassingbourn, at around 6.15pm along an area known locally as the ‘Litlington stretch’.
Kaz, who has cared for Lulu since she was an eight-week-old pup, has been looking her precious dog every day and night and on Saturday around 40 helpers turned out to join the search.
“I was hoping that would be the day we would find her but nobody found anything,” said Kaz, of Grays Close, Royston.
Kaz said her other dogs – three King Charles cavaliers and four golden retrievers – are missing Lulu, who slept in Kaz’s bed at night.

“Night-time is my worse time because I think of her out there and cold,” she said. “It is heartbreaking really.”
The day after her disappearance Lulu was spotted by another dog walker at around 8am but she was so terrified that she ran off again. Despite everybody’s best efforts, she has not been seen since.
The search continues and helpers are still looking out for little Lulu and posting updates on a Facebook page set up by Kaz called ‘Dedicated to Lulu Wagland’, which has attracted almost 200 likes.
Kaz is requesting that if anyone finds Lulu that they do not chase her but instead speak to her softly and call Kaz on 01763 221899 or 07748 666270.
“I just need to know where she is and if something has happened to her,” she said.
