A family are offering a £1,000 reward for the safe return of their precious prize winning Pug dog that went missing from their home in Read this morning (Wednesday).

Priscilla, who is three years old and pregnant,, disappeared from the house in Hambledon View at around 10am leaving her owners Sian Hindle and Shaun Abrahams distraught. A rare breed, Priscilla is black all over and a very gentle and friendly dog.

Sian, who also has a baby son Hugo who is four months old, said: "We think that Priscilla was taken from the house or the back yard and we are desperate to have her back.

"She is due to have her puppies in three weeks and she will have to give birth by Caesarian section.

"We are so worried about her and our other two Pugs, Elsa and Lola, are pining for her.''

A pedigree dog, Priscilla is a regular competitor in dog shows and has won a raft of awards.

Anyone with information about Priscilla is asked to ring the police on 101 quoting crime number eg1601109.
