Princess sad over missing dog

The Duchess of York and Princess Beatrice

Princess Beatrice's mum has asked for help in finding her daughter's dog which has gone missing.

Beatrice's dog Max, who is a cream and sandy-coloured Norfolk Terrier, was last seen chasing a squirrel in Windsor Great Park in Berkshire.

Beatrice's mum is Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, who was married to the Queen's son, Prince Andrew.

Sarah said on a BBC radio appeal that her daughter was "distraught", and that her family was offering a reward.

"We believe he's been picked up by somebody who does not know what to do with him, but if they could take him to a vet or the police station," Sarah said.

Beatrice, who is 20, has had Max for seven years and takes him nearly everywhere with her.

Max has two front teeth missing, and a bit of a big tummy, Sarah added.
