Sorry it isn't Bruce the picture didn't give a full length of him so thought I would pop it on. I have also popped the link onto G44 who have lost one just in case. A pleasure to help someone, never know when your going to be wanting the help. Sue Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thanks for doing that Keelah. Let's hope it bring some news of Bruce. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
press release and update of activity been sent to you now Emily!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Dear Bruce must be somewhere, such a distinguished boy like this can't just go from the face of the earth. Best of Luck, I so hope that he is home with you soon. Kind Regards.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
hi all, i managed to get hold of the picture ion the end but sad to say it wasnt bruce. No other leads to let you know about either but hoping to get some media coverage sorted out asap so fingers crossed and ill keep you all posted. thanks for all your help xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I looked at this Emily but I can't get into it either now. I'm sure it wasn't Bruce, as The Dogmother says, white chest markings were different. Also thought that white on feet didn't match but better if the owner looks as they can tell straight away if there's a chance it's their dog. Why don't you contact admin off that site and send them the link below. Explain that you need to look at that particular thread to see if this is your dog. The thread may have been archived etc but should still be accessible to admin.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
hi dogmother, i tried that website and the link you gave but it keeps saying that even though i have registered, i cant have access to that post as i need granted access. would it be at all possible to email me the pic so i can have a look. thank you for yor help xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Have just seen this on a rescue sight. The chest markings do not look the same but I just want a second pair of eyes to confirm that before I move on... edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi Bruces owner, I've just had a look at the DDB Welfare website and noticed you already have Bruce advertised on there, I don't want to speak out of turn but the ad reads that he has minimal white JUST to his toes but your pic on here shows he has the common white markings on his chest, I was just thinking that the other ad might be slightly misleading as anyone reading it will get the impression he doesn't have the white chest (as some DDB's don't) maybe you could alter the ad or send the pic thats on this site?, I really hope you don't think I'm speaking out of turn, I just want to see you get your boy back.

Sorry, just to add, this dog is not chipped, but nor was mine when I got her back, it's worth pursuing!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Have you posted a stolen ad on Preloved, the more he's out there the better the chance of someone seeing him. Good luck.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I looked at Ballou on pets 4 home up for stud, he did look the same as Bruce but the website was so professional that I felt that it must be genuine. I really do hope that you find him soon, he is chipped, so if he gets poorly you may get lucky.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi I not the one to give any advice, just concerned for you and your dog Bruce. Why don't you PM your area co-ordinator for advice she may be able to put you onto the person that dealt with the recent case of the DDB put up for stud in Croydon. The owner made an appointment to take a bitch along, met the police there and got her dog back, she was 99 percent sure that this was her dog. I have seen your ads and look out for ads selling ddb's or ddb up for stud. I wish you the very best of luck in finding Bruce, he can't just have disappeared off the face of the earth, such a handsome boy. Kind RegardsLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
hi, still no news on bruce but looking for a little advice. ive posted adds all over the internet and am constantly looking for adverts selling male ddb or studs which sound like they could possibly be bruce. however, im struggling with finding out if its him or not. when i ring, i dont know what to say without scaring them off or offending them. ive even had people calling me quite angry for insinuating that they have my dog. dont want to give up the search but like i said, how can i do this without causing problems. thanksLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks for the update Bruce's owner. Can't the paper give you any details about the ad?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
hi all, just to keep you all up to date. still no news on bruce. had a phone call saying there was an add for an adult male for sale in linconshire lout local paper but cant seem to get hold of the add so if anyone has heard anything there, could you please let me know. thanks xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Just to let you all know. I checked with the rescue centre. The DDB in there was on holiday. He belongs to one of the helper / fundraisers there. I hadn't realised it was the same BIG puppy I'd met at the christmas fayer early december. So it's not missing Bruce. I'll email his details to all teh people I know to jog memories though.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thank you for doing that The Dogmother. Have you heard back from them yet?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I saw a dog de bordeaux in a bording kennel near Northampton at the weekend. I've just emailed the kennel to ask them to scan and check the microchip to make sure he's not your boy. It occurs to me that if you were to steal a dog to keep for yourself, then paying for a boarding kennel for a couplke of months would keep him out of sight until the dust settles. It's probably not him - but it's worth asking.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
please please please, everyone keep looking ot for bruce no matter where you live. its been so long without him now and i havnt heard any news or anything. let everyone know and get them to pass it on. someone has to know where he is xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I can't understnd how such a big, beautiful dog like this can go missing, someone must have seen him, I wish you all the luck in the world in finding this beauty.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Please don't give up Bruce's owner, he's out there somewhere, I keep looking at my Bordeaux Harley and wondering how I'd feel if he went missing, all I can say is I know I'd be devastated, they (to me) are the most gorgeous and comical breed of dog and although not exactly rare, you don't see too many of them about, keep going, keep postering, keep badgering the police, don't give up on your boy. Debbi xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Sorry there is no news on Bruce. Keep postering and keeping him as high profile as you can so that everyone is still aware that he hasn't been found yet. Hoping you get some good news soon. SueLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
still no news on bruce at the moment. The police rang for an update but im sad to say it doesnt look like they have really taken it that serious. as more time goes by im starting to feel its less likely we will have him home soon but im still keeping my fingers crossed. We all really miss him, its not the same without him xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I am too far away to offer any help with posters but I am sending very positive thoughts your way and hope you get your boy back very soon. Do make sure you take all the advice given to poster as much as you can ! It really does raise public awareness and gets results ! Also try to get press coverage. I fell in love with this breed of dog when i was involved with the theft of 3 puppies locally. They are such a fantastic dog and true gentle giants. Such a striking dog that just cant go unoticed and you will make him too hot to handle with lots of posters! Good luck and i truly hope you gtet som e news of handsome Bruce very soon !

I'm too far away to be of any help but wanted to say I hope Bruce is home safe and well soon, it's sad when any dog goes missing but when you own that particular breed yourself it just gives that one extra tug at the heart. Be safe Bruce, you'll be home soon xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks everyone for your help in putting posters up!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
All it will take is for BRUCE to make his get away from these boys, and it is good he is chipped, good advise from BuffysMum about posting get them up every where you can and if they do see them as buffysmum says they may just get frighten, hope BRUCE will be back soon. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Make sure that you flood the area where Bruce has been seen with posters. Make sure that everywhere these foolish lads go they are faced with a picture of 'their' dog.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Our dog went missing in december and we luckily got him back, we'll help in the little billing area. hope he comes back xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
