Can you help find Arthur?
posted by: M44 - Wednesday 21st December, 2011
2 weeks ago this beautiful family dog Arthur escaped out of his garden and has not been seen since.
The family are distraught with worry and there are 2 very upset young children that may be losing their loving pet at this time of year.
No presents could replace him and I am begging people within the Greater Manchester area to share this photo in the hope that someone returns Arthur.
There is a reward for his return and you could help to stop 2 young children and family from having a heart breaking Christmas.
He is a friendly dog and we have tried all the known avenues with no luck since the day he went missing. Please share if you are in the Greater Manchester Area.
He is from the M44 postcode and was last seen not far from Barton Airport on Liverpool Road.
Please help to put the smiles back into a little boy and girls faces.
Phone 07920078013 Thanks Markus De Rawkus
Defibshop aims to put heart in the community

Cadishead-based defibshop.co.uk has teamed up with a trio of firms to give away free devices to schools.
It will work with first aid training provider Imperative, life support products supplier supplier Laerdal and manufacturer Philips to donate defibrillators to 24 schools through its Hand on Heart campaign.
To do this, schools can apply for a grant for a free machine or can partner with a local business, which can offer support through their CSR strategy.
Defibshop project manager Gina Harris said: “We believe that as manufacturers, distributors and trainers that defibrillators are incredibly important pieces of equipment, particularly if you look at the statistics, where 12 young children die every week from sudden cardiac arrest.
“We believe that the Hand on Heart campaign is a very powerful way of raising awareness to the problem of cardiac arrest in the young but also a way of doing something positive about it by providing life saving solutions into schools.
“For every minute that someone is in cardiac arrest their chance of survival drops by about 10 per cent.
“If you have to wait for an ambulance it maybe too late whereas if you have a defibrillator and are able to use it, the victim's chance of survival leaps to approximately 78 per cent chance of survival - that is certainly money and time well invested.”
A defibrillator is a small piece of medical equipment designed to save someone's life if they are in sudden cardiac arrest by giving them a shock of electricity.
The Hand on Heart campaign was set up to educate and equip as many children and teachers as possible with the knowledge and skills to save a life by giving away 24 defibrillators this year and training at least 700 children in basic life support and 144 teachers how to use a defibrillator.
Businesses who want to support a local school need to visit www.handonheart.org and nominate the school of their choice through the corporate section.
Manchester City Football Club has already signed up after selecting to help out North East Manchester Academy.
Harris added: “We believe our campaign is unique in the UK and we hope it will grow over the next few years but we want some local north west businesses to support our campaign.”
