I have been in contact with Rio’s owner and sadly there have been no recent sightings of Rio, there are plenty of posters up in the area and I have suggested contacting the local newspapers to ask them to do an article on Rio as this will reach out to more people.

Any chance of using his brother in the area he went missing (on lead obviously) to see if he can pick up scent or draw him out?Last edited: 2018-01-11 11:55:01

Rio is a rescue from Spain - anyone advising the owner?
This is not an Italian Spinone, lots of GWP in Spain, looks to me like a podenco/GWP cross. Have shared xx
