We are all always on the look out for him and wish to thank everyone who continues to keep him in their minds and especially would like to thank people who send us information from time to time when they see a potential match for him - it really is appreciated.
Please continue to keep Taz in your thoughts xxx

Please any posts you may have shared in the past anywhere on social media could you go and 'bump' them to remind people he is still missing.

Thank you so much and keep looking. "

Thank you lynnrounders and Hectorglen - I understand details of the dog found in the Salford area have been passed on to Taz's owner to checkout.

Please check says no chip. Think Blaze is different but worth a look

Sadly it is 1 year today since Taz went missing from the Cockwood area near Dawlish South Devon. He is very much missed by his family and we all continue to look for him. xx
Taz has been missing for 8 months now and owners believe he has been stolen. Link to a post from this morning on his Facebook group for info - https://www.facebook.com/groups/123932904987392/permalink/184601205587228/
Could this be Taz? http://www.lostdogsuk.co.uk/assets/dog-reports/1521545683/30-0.SDK-ICS948301.pdf
Could Admin do a post & send out alerts for the sighted dog ?
Is it possible to set up a feeding station in a sheltered position near last sighting in case the dog returns and can then establish a routine until able to be caught? This may already have been done or may not be practical.
Black white collie spotted by basket lodge 9am up port road. Looking very thin and lost tried to coax it in but just ran so in the mamhead area

Trying to organise a search of area went missing from ideally tomorrow (Friday 20th October).
Facebook group now set up with permission of the owners - https://www.facebook.com/groups/123932904987392/
No incident officially reported following a check with 101 this morning although something did happen in the area - appears people involved must have been ok. No sign of Taz so far sadly. Met with owner who is going back searching this afternoon. They will also be postering the area. If Taz is not found today will aim to go back to the area tomorrow morning.
Still missing sadly - it is believed that he may have been involved in the accident that occurred on the A379 yesterday morning involving 4 cars near the old petrol station on the straight bit of road by Cockwood. Going over this morning to have look in the area.
