A 43-year-old GM of General Motors in Gurgaon started an online campaign to find her pet, after it went missing from her house on the night of October 22. The campaign entered its ninth day on Tuesday.

Hatchi, a white spitz and lab (mixed breed), ran away from its house in Sanjay Gram, Sector 14, when the gate was left open by tenants.

The owner, Sudha Candran, also announced an amount of Rs.5,000 as reward to anyone who finds Hatchi. So upset was she, that she did not celebrate Diwali this year. As the physical search for the missing dog gathers steam, an online campaign is also slowly gaining ground, demanding that law enforcement authorities investigate all possible leads to find him.

“Hatchi would normally run out whenever the gate was open. I have tenants living on the first floor. He would rush out whenever my help opened the gate, but he always came back after 30 minutes,” Chandran said.

The seven-month-old dog was wearing a blue collar when it went missing. “We are overwhelmed at the kindness people showed, spending hours looking for him. I had a full time help but he left in September, so no one was there when he went out,” said Chandran.

She registered with a missing dog helpline and checked with Friendicoes, an NGO for animals, and even the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG).

“I have tried all possible places and social networking sites, but haven’t heard anything positive yet,” she said. Chandran has uploaded videos of her pet, in the online campaign and requested the help of the public to find her missing pet.
