Johannesburg – Despite her Yorkshire Terrier being missing for months on end, Doreth le Roux from Bloemfontein has not given up hope of finding her cherished pet – instead she has turned to an unconventional way of communicating with, and hopefully locating, her dog.

Speaking to News24 on Monday, Le Roux said her year-old yorkie, Lienkie, had gone missing from her home in January.

Le Roux said she had left home and instructed her domestic worker to ensure Lienkie did not leave her backyard because “she was too small to go to the front yard”.

“But our helper later told us she had left a window opened. Because Lienkie is so small she is easy to take away or even escape on her own.”

Le Roux said she walked most streets of her neighbourhood the day her dog went missing.

“I had scoured the streets looking for her. I was crying walking the streets.”

The psychic root

A few months after Lienkie went missing, Le Roux turned to a psychic, despite being a sceptic.

“I was initially contacted by a cat medium. She told me that a dog’s energy is lower than a cat. So she was limited in how she could assist.”

Le Roux said she visited a Facebook page for lost and stray Yorkies and small breeds, and made an appeal for her missing pet on the page.

Here, she touched base with Tammy De Oliveira, an animal psychic based in KwaZulu-Natal, who assured Le Roux that Lienkie was safe.

Le Roux said De Oliveira had given her an insight into the whereabouts of her beloved Lienkie.

“Tammy said Lienkie wanted to go out and explore. It was because I babied her. She has a big spirit and wanted to explore.”

Le Roux said that during her sessions with De Oliveira, she realised Lienkie was with a family of four.

“She connected with Lienkie four times. She told me Lienkie is with a man, a woman with two children. Lienkie told her she wants to be found. Lienkie advised us to let newspapers know we are looking for her.”

Le Roux said Lienkie, through De Oliveira, explained the route the family took to drop their children off at school.

“Our dog described how they took their kids to school and passed a KFC on the way. Lienkie also explained how they drive past a shopping centre.”

Le Roux said De Oliveira had described how Lienkie hoped to return home.

“She wants to be found. I want to tell the people who have her just to bring her back. I won’t get angry or anything. I just want my puppy back.”

Energy and telepathy

Speaking to News24, De Oliveira said she had been an animal psychic for eight years.

“I know people are sceptical but every being is connected through energy. Every single person has the ability to connect with an animal telepathically.”

De Oliveira said that she connects with animals on a “soul to soul” level. 

“Many people do not realise that animals also have souls. They have their own journeys. They go missing for a variety of reasons. Lots of animals know where they are but leave their homes for a particular reason. Sometimes, like us, they just get bored. They need adventure and stimulation.”

De Oliveira said when she communicated with animals she received words, images and feelings.

“I ask them to show me where they are and where they have been. I tell all of my clients there are no guarantees. We see how we can raise our vibrations and communicate with the animals.”
