James Whittle is asking for help from people across the Banburyshire area in finding his dog, a nine-year-old black lurcher called Blackberry.

Blackberry was last seen around 9pm on Saturday May 15 when she escaped the garden at her family's home between Duns Tew and Middle Barton.

James said: "I was at work when she got out so I think she might have been looking for me and caught scent of something.

"She is very friendly, especially to men and has distinct facial scars on her bottom lip."

James took in Blackberry and her sister, Blueberry, earlier this year in February from a friend after she'd been living on a farm.

He said: "We have got very close during our short time together as she had barely left my side."

Blackberry has been registered with Dog Lost UK, the UK's largest lost and found dog service.
