We finally have Luca contained safe and sound :)
Tracy Benjamin
thanks, he is seen daily in the area and is fit and well and being fed but until he can be confined in a garden or shed etc he is too wiley to be caught
Seen 2 hours ago seen alone by eagle Croft! Walking towards monyhull grange estate, B14 area of Birmingham, didn't want to phone you as just seen the post myself and it's so late, there is a photograph I can share with you if needed which the poster took?
Seen early morning last week in field adjacent to your land. Watched my dog playing ball then headed down towards walkers heath park. Sorry didn’t let you know sooner.
Tracy Benjamin
there is nothing to be concerned about, we know of his where abouts, he is being fed and is ok but he is covering a large area and will avoid traps and enclosed spaces so containing him is proving to be a challenge (he is very street wise and clever!) We will update when there is something to update.
A bit concerned we have not had an update re Luca,especially since the last comment. Can anyone update please.
Samantha Franks
Just seen a post on the only way is whythall and Hollywood facebook page about a lady spotting a white dog covered in mud and thin, running loose by becketts farm at 9:45pm tonight.

Good luck, sounds like you have everything under control & hope to hear that you have Luca safe x
Tracy Benjamin
He is back on our land, we are working to contain him back into his enclosure
Are there any more updates on Luca please? I have been away but cannot see a recent update.
Tracy Benjamin
We know where he is and is being fed in the location, hopeful we will have him safe over the weekend
Any updates on Luca?? xx
Tracy Benjamin
Samantha Franks we know Ray well and he is already aware and onboard ready to help. We need Luca to stay in one area before we can attempt any trapping

I have seen on Facebook that a local man (Ray Dedicoat) is very experienced in helping to catch flighty dogs. His methods helped to catch an extremely nervous dog from a rescue that I volunteer for. His details are:
01564 823 244. Hollytree boarding kennels and cattery, packhorse Lane, Hollywood, Birmingham, b47 5dh
There has been a Radip appeal re: Luca on Wets Mids radio, a few minutes ago, so paws, and fingers xd.
Tracy Benjamin
Please keep an eye out around the Coughton, Studley, Alcester areas Warks for our lost boy please, this is where he has been sighted PM on 1st March, he is heading South and is travelling significant distances every day/night. DO NOT APPROACH OR CALL BUT CALL US IMMEDIATELY ON 07999546593 if sighted
Tracy Benjamin
It is great there are sightings being reported but PLEASE CALL US when he is spotted and DO NOT call, chase or try and go towards him, because of this last night there was a missed opportunity to get him and he has run further south.
Samantha Franks
I have shared on Facebook and have seen details on the Spotted:Redditch Facebook page of possible sightings.

Really hope that he is found soon. It sounds as though some people are trying to call him, so need to be informed to not approach him and To phone instead.
Shared on FB..Hope Luca is found very soon xx
I think that I have a sighting of this dog on Spernal Lane, about 2 miles south of the Spernal Ash garage and about 1/2 mile south of Purity Brewery. the dog was seen by passing motorists who tried to attract the dog, but he ran off. Described as being of retriever type with a patch on the head. A search of the area revealed nothing, but this was in very wintry conditions. Good luck!
