This paranormal pup is the real life Scooby Doo – joining her owners on mysterious missions to uncover the truth about haunted locations and reports of spooky sightings.
Sean Reynolds, 38 and wife, Rebecca, AGE, started hunting ghosts seven years ago, but in need of a team mate with a sixth sense, they bought one-year-old Golden retriever, Trixie, last year.
The married couple and pup, who live in a cemetery in Everton, Liverpool, spend their days loading up their mystery machine-style van with a whole host of equipment ready to detect and capture on film ghouls, ghosts and other apparitions – just like the Scooby Doo gang.
Sean said: “We started bringing Trixie along because people say animals have a sixth sense for these things and we wanted to see if she could detect anything that we couldn’t.
“Just the other day we took her to a location and she was freaking out, she really didn’t want to go inside.
“When we finally got her in there she was really spooked and wouldn’t move which gave us a very good indication that she was picking up something that we couldn’t see.
The real-life Scooby Doo are well trained
“She’s very well trained to sniff around and look for clues, and when to stop walking and when to carry on hunting around.
“People call her the real life Scooby all the time and tell us we are like the Scooby gang with our mystery machine style van.”
As well as having Trixie in their armour, Sean and Rebecca use a range of equipment to detect paranormal activity including night vision cameras, devices to catch electromagnetic frequency or ionic changes, temperature gauges, and dictaphones to capture even the smallest noises.
Sean said: “During the day we sometimes just go and scope out a location that is believed to be haunted, and then most of the time we will go back at night to see what we can find out.
“Some of the locations are recommended to us, some we find ourselves or sometimes people will call us and ask us to come and get rid of a poltergeist.”
