I told John not to give up as it's still early days, even though it might not seem so. PLEASE, is there anyone in the immediate area (Tottenham, North London) that can help to find this young Rottie boy (still only a baby at 20 weeks)? I've told owner to particularly concentrate on local pubs, cab offices and to ask the local sorting office. Is anyone close to John and who also knows the area? I've emphasised that he MUST keep in contact with Battersea, just in case whoever has him, makes mistakes and that Gunner takes the opportunity to run for it! Keeping everything crossed for Gunner.

I sent John, Gunner's worried owner an email asking for an update and here is his reply:
'No news for 10 days. He has been missing now for 3 weeks and we have come to the end of hope. No sign of him in the local area, I think he has been moved out. Just hope he is being treated well and is happy, although I suspect he will be a guard dog instead of part of someone's family, due to the circumstances in which we lost him. Stolen to order, we think.
If he comes home, I promise I will let everyone know in great detail!!!
Thank you for your help - John

Hi John! We've had 3 Rottie boys reunited in the last 6 days - Storm, Georgie and Tank and so I hope it won't be long until we see Gunner in the 'blue area'. Let us know how you are getting on with the postering and whether you have been successful in getting a crime number from the police.

John please check your email for my message. SueLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Still missing Gunner had a few reported sightings but nothing that I could say was absolute gospel. Missing him growing up. Thank you, all of you for your help - John  Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

John, thanks for posting on Gunner's page and for updating us on the current situation. Have you been in contact with your local police, both the Met and your Safer Neighbourhoods Police Team? This little lad is far too young to be away from home. Are you still postering? Are there any Helpers nearby who can help John in any way? I do hope it won't be too long now until your Gunner is back home with you.

I'm so sorry to hear that Gunner has been stolen and in such awful circumstances. As others have already said, postering is the key here. Make sure you get as many posters out as possible - at least 100 for starters! Place the posters in plastic pockets with the opening at the bottom (you can also seal the opening with weatherproof clear sellotape). It is essential that you visit ALL local pubs. Try to go along at lunchtime or early evening when they tend to be quieter. Ask the manager to display a poster of Gunner both inside the pub and on windows facing onto the pavement. Ask if you can leave a small bundle of mini posters and hand them out to pub customers and just about everyone you come across. That way when someone spots Gunner or hears about someone who has recently acquired a young Rottie they will have your contact details to hand, rather than having to return to a poster. Make sure you visit local cab offices and, as with pubs, ask them to display a poster and leave mini posters for the cab drivers and customers to take away with them. These don't have to be in colour as just about everyone knows what a Rottie looks like. When we were searching for a Staffie round our way (now reunited!) I printed the mini posters onto BRIGHT ORANGE paper. Also visit your local sorting office and supermarket car parks. Simply make Gunner the hottest and best known Rottie in town. Please keep us posted on what you have covered so far. Hope it won't be too long until Gunner is back home. Best wishes from a 'fellow' Rottie owner!

Just to emphasie on what has been said- make sure you have a crime reference number and get posters out as much as possible- maybe local press would run a story?? As said before make this dog too hot to handle. CJ Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

John so sorry to see Gunner has been stolen especially at knifepoint.  I've emailed some smaller posters and an A4 large one, you need to poster around the area and make him too hot to handle.  Good luck.  Jan xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Main markings are his tail about 8 in long, black but looks there are highlights in there. His tail curls up when resting. Coat looks wavy on his back. Long legs for his body. At the moment, his head is not stereotypically Rotty, more shaped like a labradors!  Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

this is so terrible, i do hope you find your dear boy soon, there are some evil people about, stay safe  and good luck xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Try and get some publicity with local papers and/or radio. As has been said, poster everywhere. Tell dog walkers and local dog walking services. Check and poster anywhere that dogs are sold in the area. People looking definitely need to know any distinguishing marks, anything to help them spot your dog. Good luck x
