That is absolutely brilliant news! Del is obviously a resourceful little dog. I've only just discovered this site but it was great to take part in the hunt for missing Del especially with the positive outcome.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Brilliant news! So glad for his owners they were so worried. Fancy him getting all the way to Knowle! Was he heading for Crufts? Lol Great news another day of de-postering 2moro..... Thats my favourite job. Welcome home Del Be a good boy and stay with your mom and dad : ) Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Welcome home Del. stay safe now. xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I think he must still have had his collar and tag on Jayne as I think all the postering was done around the area he went missing. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
He must have run for a long time! Thats quite some way for a little dog-had he seen posters then to contact owner?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
LOL Jayne. Owner did say that Del hadn't growled at him once since coming back home, so maybe this experience has changed his mind about men!! . Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks to everyone who has helped poster and search for Del. I would never have dreamed he would be found in Knowle!! Thanks also to the man who braved the freezing cold water of a lake to capture Del and get him safely home. Welcome home Del XXLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Aaah bless him-it did say he was nervous of men-but how kind of the man to jump in and save him-maybe Del will now reconsider being scared of men?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Message from owner.....I have great news Del is home!! We had a call off someone in Knowle. Del walked across their patio at 9pm last night. When they went out to investigate he was so scared he jumped in their large lake, the man jumped in and caught him took him inside fed him dried him off and called us. I must thank you all at doglost for all your support and help you gave us at a very bad time, you guys do a fantastic job.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Great to see Del is now back home with his family. Jan xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Del is home!!!! I will update with a message from owners very soon.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi Millie1 Firstly it would be good if someone could double check vets etc re Del. I think the owners have limited resources. I think the dogs name on its disc is one for personal preference, there are, in my experience, fors and againsts. I know of dogs who have been called away by children because they know the dogs name. But if its a choice between a dog wearing a tag with just its name and a contact number or the owners not bothering to tag, chip or tatoo at all then I suppose its the lesser of two evils. Also many people who produce these tags are not aware of the legal requirements and often wrongly advise well meaning owners. Hoping to see Del in the blue soon x Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thought I'd ask a general question about pet ID. My dog is microchipped and has a brass tag with my name, address & phone number. What's the general feeling about including the pet's name also?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi Thanks Tara9. That clears up the confusion then. Other dog walkers in the park had mentioned the nature centre. I have been looking for Del also but no sign as yet. I presume the local vets have been contacted? Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi Millie 1 I spoke to owners and they told me about the sighting of Del running outside Lloyds chemist on the day that they lost him, they didnt mention the sighting by the Nature Centre to me.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I will not be in B'ham until Thursday but will put poster up at our dog training class which is in the Kings Heath area. If any sightings around the time I am there will obviously go out looking.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi I saw your poster in Kings Heath park. I heard your Westie ran down towards the nature centre. But this message board says he was seen walking by Lloyds Chemist on the High Street (which is the opposite direction). Can you confirm last sighting? I live in B14 and will also print off some posters. I presume you've tried the local vets? I will ask my friends in Kings Heath to look out for Del. Good luck in finding him.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I am at work today and Crufts tomorrow so won't be able to do anything so if any local folks can lend a hand sure owners would be grateful. When I spoke to them on the phone they were grateful for any help anyone can offer. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
There is a 2 yr old westie on the Blue Cross website called Bailey - may not be Del as is up for rehoming but link is edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Have there been any other sightings? If not, would think that he has been picked up. The area is highly populated and very busy. Has owner tried Hollytrees Kennels on 01564 823244? They are not too far from Kings Heath. Keep safe Del and show yourself if you can.XXX.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Been out postering back of Kings Heath and around Highbury park. Put poster in sainsbury's too. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Just spoken to owner, still no news. Del was seen running down the main high street in Kings Heath on the day he was lost, just past Lloyds chemists. Owners did not get Del locally so does not know area. Owners feel sure someone has picked him up. Owners have postered Kings Heath area. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
If owners have only had him 5 weeks what area has he come from?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks Jayne. Owner doesn't have a printer but is going to get some help from a friend in IT today and get some posters printed now that the photo is on site. Del has gone missing in a busy area very near to one of the main roads into Birmingham. Any helpers in this area? Would be really glad of your help. Thanks. SueLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks Sue. Will e mail poster out to local helpers.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Have spoken to Del's owners and we are hopefully getting a photo sorted soon. Del has only been in his home for about 5 weeks and is very nervous. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
perhaps the posters of barkley that are no doubt still being taken down can be replaced with posters of this little one?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
come on del show yourself and come home soon x xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
