Lawyer seeks help to find missing pet dog Lilo

KLANG: A lawyer and his family are desperately looking for their pet dog Lilo, who went missing on Jan 26.

R. Shanmugam, 53, said Lilo was sent to a boarding centre that day as the family had a funeral at home.

"My mother had passed away in the morning and as there would be many people coming over to attend the funeral, we felt boarding her somewhere for a few days would be the best solution," said Shanmugam, who lives in Taman Melawati.

According to Shanmugam, the boarding centre proprietor came to their home to collect Lilo soon after his mother's cortege arrived.

He said he texted the boarding centre proprietor the following day to check on Lilo but did not get a response.

"About an hour later, the man turned up at my doorstep and told me that Lilo had escaped when his worker removed him from the carrier outside the boarding centre upon arrival," said Shanmugam.

The three-year-old female mix-breed is said to have run off around the Taman Karak Utama area.

Shanmugam said what happened to Lilo had intensified the family's grief.

"She was the apple of our eye and the queen of our home. We are going through a nightmare fearing what could have happened to her," he said.

Shanmugam added he and his family as well as friends have been searching for Lilo daily.

He said that there are plans to initiate an extensive search on Saturday (Feb 11).

"We need volunteers and hope that dog lovers and rescuers will help us look for our Lilo," said Shanmugam.

Those who want to join Shanmugam, his family and friends in their search for Lilo can call him at 017-879 2012, Janesh (010-438 8943) or Surin (013-3502769).

Shanmugam is offering a RM2,500 reward to anyone who finds and returns Lilo to him and his family.
