Dubai: A Russian expatriate has appealed to the public to help her find her Siberian Husky, which has been missing since December 27.
Anastasia Kuznetsova, who lives in Jumeirah 1 behind Beach Centre, last saw Husky Kai on December 26.
“He went missing when we were sleeping between 2am and 8am. He sleeps inside the house but on that night, he managed to open the kitchen door of the villa and escaped,” 39-year-old Kuznetsova, an engineer, told Gulf News.
“He’s a typical Husky that likes to run and chase cats. That’s his target in his life,” she added.
The six-year-old dog has been spayed. He has blue eyes, light grey fur, and a black collar.
“He likes to escape into the garden. He’s been with me for a year now since we rescued him from his previous owner who kept him outside [on] a chain.”
Kuznetsova said she fears that Kai has been “dognapped” as most of her neighbours know her dogs and would have returned her pet.
“I believe someone picked him up because he’s friendly. If a car stops, he will jump into it. That’s how he is. We put posters everywhere: vets, online ad sites, Dubai Municipality, but no one has seen him.”
Kuznetsova is offering a reward for information that would lead to Kai’s return.
“I want him back because we love him. We miss him.”
