Munni - a pet dog belonging to the British Deputy High Commissioner to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana ran away in distress from his Hyderabad home, frightened by the fireworks on Diwali. On Saturday, the Deputy High Commissioner, Dr. Andrew Fleming sought the help of netizens on Twitter to help him find Munni.
“Dear Friends, Our beloved Munni, terrified by the #Diwali fireworks, ran away from our Residence close to @RoasteryCoffee in Banjara Hills. It has taken my guards this long to inform me so time is of the essence. Any help in sharing this/finding her is appreciated," he tweeted along with a picture of the dog.
He also added that Munni is “quite shy and timid” and also scared of other dogs. “Her fur is particularly soft. Her collar has been changed since this photo,” read another tweet. The message has gone viral with people suggesting different ways to get the pet back. On Sunday, he posted an update saying that Munni is still missing.
Missing Munni update:-
Thanks to the many who have retweeted and shared on other platforms and to @nuts2406 for the poster idea.
Morning spent checking local construction sights to no avail.
We keep hoping.#MunniComeHome pic.twitter.com/xY4d9z0cmK
