It’s been a ‘ruff’ week for Turner Real Estate managing director Lachlan Turner, as his family’s treasured pug has gone missing.
Rosie, 2, went missing in Kensington Gardens last Saturday, November 2, leaving the family fearing for the worst and desperate to find her, increasing their previous reward of $1500 to $2000.
Having recently worked on the sales campaign for the Animal Welfare League’s bequeathed Glen Osmond property, Mr Turner said it could be described as the ultimate irony.
“It’s just very weird timing,” he said.
A well-loved member of the Turner family, Mr Turner said it had been a difficult couple of weeks as they searched for Rosie.
“It’s been extraordinarily difficult for our family, especially for our kids, she’s just one of them,” Mr Turner said.
“We live right near the park and take her down there every day, everyone at the park is devastated as well.”
Mr Turner has posted her missing poster on his Facebook page, Lost Dogs of Adelaideand around the Kensington Gardens area.
His six-year-old son and his son’s classmates have even made missing posters for beloved Rosie.
Although the family have been devastated by Rosie’s disappearance, Mr Turner said the outpour of support from the community was nothing short of heart warming.
“The public response has been such a comfort and overwhelming,” he said.
“People have been searching the streets that we don’t even know, we’re blown away by the community.”
Rosie has a fawn colour coat, dark facial features and is almost two years old. She has been desexed and microchipped, and has been flagged with the database as missing.
Mr Turner said anyone with information could contact him on 0403 272 087 or take her to a nearby vet.
