While Thailand is riddled with stray dogs roaming the street, one lost dog could net you 10,000 baht. That’s the reward a devoted pet owner has offered in Phuket for the safe return of a dog that has gone missing.

Residents of Kathu in Phuket are being asked to help find an ex-stray dog that has been missing for three days after having last been seen on Thursday. The call for help was posted on Facebook by a user nicknamed House Plants on Friday.

The dog was identified in the post as Nong Deaw. The poster described the dog as being afraid of humans. They also warned that the missing stray is affected by health issues. A reward of 10,000 baht is being offered to anyone who can help find the animal.

The dog went missing the day before the Facebook post in the area of Kathu Wittaya School. Volunteers have been searching for Nong Deaw since he went missing, but have had no success so far.

Anyone who is able to help find Nong Deaw is asked to call 093-575-3456 or 080-719-9989. If you see Nong Deaw or have any information on his whereabouts, please call the numbers provided.

Another woman recently made news as she has been searching for her dog for over 140 days. Her one year old male dog, Lucky, went missing after being hit by a motorbike in Ayutthaya province on October 30, 2022.

Despite staff at the hospital telling her that Lucky had died, Supatchayanin never gave up on finding her beloved pet. She recently received a glimmer of hope when someone posted a picture of a dog on Facebook that looked just like Lucky.

The man who posted the picture said he had been caring for the dog since it turned up in the Bang Khae district of Bangkok. However, when Supatchayanin arrived to collect Lucky, the man told her that the dog had disappeared.
