Cape Town – A Cape Town family is reportedly offering a R10 000 reward to anyone who can help find their Boston Terrier dog, which went missing during hiking at Constantia Nek in Cape Town.
Reports indicated that Skunk, a black and white terrier with one blue eye and spots on its stomach and ears, went missing on June 16.
According to IOL, Rotem Whitehouse, the owner, said they had exhausted all avenues trying to find Skunk – involving animal rescue teams – to no avail.
Managing director of Boston Terrier Rescue South Africa, Carli O’Connor, confirmed that his team had been involved in the search and that a reward was offered, the report said.

“The K9s travelled from Johannesburg to Cape Town last week and healthy hound search and rescue team also assisted. Personally, I am worried that something happened, and that’s why we’ve not found him. We have a R10 000 reward for the person who finds him,” the report quoted O’Connor as saying.
A News24 report said that Rotem and her husband, Andrew Whitehouse, were on an outing with a group of friends and their furry friends about three weeks ago when tragedy struck.
The report said that a family friend went as far as contacting an animal communicator, who began tracking down the dog while posters were distributed in and around the area.
Skunk had epilepsy and needed to take medication three times a day. This has increased the family’s worries, said the report.
Anyone with information may contact Rotem on 082 777 7820 or her husband Andrew Whitehouse at 082 611 3988.
