So this dog is not a recent stray who might be straying around lost but has been missing/stolen for nearly a year, is that right? So we need to be aware of a dog matching Riley's description appearing locally March last year?
There are 2 Vets in RG31 on Telephone: 0118 942 8240,and Telephone
0118 911 7548 so if the person tried changing chip in that area then they might be registered at one of those Vets and recognise your description of Riley. I hope you find him soon.
Thank you for all the comments, I had spoke to the Wiltshire police but they said they can't help me and RSPCA said I need to contact police again. My vet told me that someone tried changing Rileys chip details in Tilehurst. But I am trying to find out the address so I can drive down to see if my boy is ok. If been fighting to find my boy since march 2018 and If im honest I am starting to think that I will never see him again :(
Melanie needs to ring Doglost and ask to speak to the police co-ordinaror...and email all the info to stolen@doglost.co.uk. Hopefully doglost can bring some pressure on the police.
I'm shocked as SP11 is my patch and I know nothing about this dog. I have just messaged my DW to see if he knew/knows about it. Although SP11 can also be covered by the Basingstoke DW.
But reading everything that is on FB I would get a dog specialist solicitor to advise you. Unless someone from DL can jump on it straight away and advise as it needs someone with knowledge and experience.

When was Riley stolen and are there links to Reading? Where in Tilehurst was he seen?
Do we know roughly where this dog was seen in the RG31 area?
