An appeal has been put out to locate a French Bulldog who has been missing for more than two months. 

Franco, a neutered male dog with a distinctive white stripe down the centre of his face and the back of his neck, went missing from Netley Road, Newbury Park on May 23. 

Franco has intervertebral disk disease, a degenerative condition which is very common among elderly dogs and can cause significant pain to the animals. 

Owner Stephen Walters said: “Franco has been my paramount consideration and centre of my universe for over seven years. 

“I currently wake up at night believing I can feel him snuggling into me, then realise the hell I am currently living in. 

“Frank is my therapeutic companion and vital for independence as a vulnerable, disabled adult.”
