Beautiful Willow bumped for 5th anniversary
Always looking x
In reply to SS21 comment. Does it look like the dog has had puppies to you, in this gypsy camp?
I have seen a dog just like Willow in Kent. There is a Gypsy site at Ridham Dock, near Iwade in Kent where I live and where I walk my own dogs along the estuary. This dog is chained up and has only a small little kennel. I saw it only yesterday. There appears to be lots of other dogs just wandering about the site or chained up. Obviously I can't be sure 100% it is Willow but I remember seeing on facebook about the search for her and this dog looks very much like her.
Female found please check FB post
Thinking of Willow and her family, and always hoping for good news x

Beautiful Willow bumped for the three year anniversary of her being stolen

Time to go home x
Thanks Cockers2 for your message. Yes I have shared this to my group page on FB. Sadly the dog has been heavily bred from so not Willow as she is spayed. Thank you for thinking of us though & glad to hear this dog is in a loving home now.
Hi Freya have you seen the Facebook page for hopes new road to recovery. This is a brown spaniel purchased at a horse fair in Kent. The new ‘ owner’ says she is 6 year old and originally came from Wolverhampton. She is chipped but to the breeder. If you haven’t already it might be worth a look. The new ‘ owner’ is open to reuniting if stolen.
83 suspected stolen dogs have just been seized by Suffolk Police - see their fb page

Commented by mistake. 😞
Due out in December - CD booklet of the new Live Hawkwind album features ANGEL (Id 137732), NALA (Id 141670), WILLOW (Id 134537), ROBIN (Id 135356), ZALA & ZEUS (Id's 109088 & 109087), and ALBI (Id 135260)
Confirmation through Willow is not one of the 17 dogs found during Operation Medusa
With regards to dogs seized in raid in Kent. I have emailed Met Police with reference to Operation Medusa. Awaiting a reply but don’t think either brown spaniels in photos are Willow but not ruling out until 100% sure

Brown sprocker found. Post on Lost Pets Telford Shropshire
Willow is featuring on BBC1 Rip Off Britain on Monday, 20th January at 9.15 am.

Find me on the BBC 9:15-10am on 20th I am talking about how heartbreaking it is to have a dog taken, how the law doesn’t fit the crime & how little is done to help.
I just hope the more publicity on TV & in papers will mean people will start to think more & if laws are changed they become strict enough to deter thieves from stealing our family members. Fingers crossed this Year Willow is home #letsgetwillowhome . #fernslaw #tukslaw & the #pettheftreform become law 🀞🏼🀞🏼🀞🏼 #stolendog #dognapping #bbcshow #ontv #tvshowondognapping #checkthechip #scanme #comehome #2020fingerscrossed #VetsGetScanning Last edited: 2020-01-19 08:32:28 by VetsGetScanning

Yes I have Trish, I tried to put Willow’s poster up there but they won’t have 3rd party things unfortunately. I did put posters up by road at Mutton & Mermaid for people to see once they left. Probably removed now or got water damaged??
Freya have you been to Attingham at the weekends. Lots of dogs there. I could spend all day there at the cafe just looking at all the dogs. Worth a try.

From Freya x "Just received a phone call from a man saying that he’d seen a brown spaniel 10 days ago from the footpath from Homer to much Wenlock please let me know if anyone else saw this dog!!
he said there was another man present the dog looked agitated to get to the kissing gate but the other man didn’t seem to be with this dog"

On sale now. Fullstoru on the blog for dogs ( link in quick links on LHS of this page.
Willow’s chip is definitely up to date & registered as I only changed her details in April 18 as we moved then. Crawley is also about 3 hours away, so I doubt this dog is her.
Copied fromFB 1st Feb. "Yesterday evening a deceased dog was bought into Harvest Vets- Maidenbower, Crawley West Sussex by police. Was described as a liver/brown spaniel type dog. Is microchipped but hasn't been registered to database. No collar. Was found on M23 (unsure exactly where) Police and Harvest staff have advised not to view dog due to injuries sustained. Also unsure of gender due to injuries. We have the chip number so hopefully can be ID'd this way. Police CAD number is 890 31/1/19" Possibly dumped after being made too hot to handle ? x

Devonnade the dog you have mentioned is long term abuse for it to have got into that state. Last edited: 2018-09-29 19:56:37 by ClaireC
There have been NO sightings of Willow & I note that there is a Reward offeredLast edited: 2018-09-28 23:00:09 by Reynard
devonmade this is the link to that post.
HI, I have seen a similar dog on Facebook. long shot maybe but thought it worth adding. it does say on the advert via Jenny Wright Doglost Hampshire - cant copy pic. it shows on Facebook under a lady called Sarah Jane Sinden but she has shared it with several people.

Found Fareham Hampshire. Female poor condition. Has collar but no tag. Swollen face and not eating . Have advised finder to scan and inform dog warden


Chipped but chip not registered. Aged approx 6 based on chip date and vets best guess. Filthy dirty, very short dock, her mouth is swollen as her teeth are bleeding, falling out and the smell is like death, weight 6.7 kg. We have given go ahead for immediate vet work on her teeth as she is at risk of sepsis or worse, small amount of white on chest. More pics added. We have called her Wilma :)
Any questions regarding Wilma please contact Spaniel Aid as I am just cross posting for reference xx
