A thousand pound reward's being offered to try and find a missing dog called Burt Reynolds, who understands sign language and helps children at a special needs school.
The two year old Shih-Tzu - who works at Northampton's Billing Brook Special School - understands sign language and can help children at the school with their speech and confidence. He disappeared after a walk in Manor Fields in Fenny Stratford in Milton Keynes in June 2011.
Owner Claire Louise-Dixon has been telling Heart everyone is desperate for Burt to be found. "The teachers are all missing him as well," she said.
"Every time you walk into the school every teacher comes and asks 'any news, any news?'. We have special assemblies and his pictures come up on the wall and we can't take them down because that's just saying we'll never get him back.
"They don't understand Burt Reynolds has gone missing. They can't comprehend and ask 'what do you mean he's gone missing? why's he gone missing?' So we'd just like him back to make these children smile."
Anyone who thinks they may have found Burt Reynolds is asked to call Claire on 07912 142603.
