Very very well done indeed to Millie's owners who did not rush this operation at all , and are a shining example to others in the same situation. Such gentle patience and persistance has paid off again. Thank you for a wonderful update. Welcome home Millie xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Email from owners: (Millie, the Capture!!) We shall sleep well tonight, so will Millie. She was very cold and footsore but otherwise seems ok. She has warmed up sufficiently to growl softly at the grandchildren as usual. Four an hour we thought she had reformed. We had a call at about twelve, just after getting back from a search of Bleakhill Park, to say that she had been spotted late afternoon and then at 6am today in the back garden in South Road which backs onto the railway. The couple allowed us to tour the garden with Millie?s siblings and had already put some food out. They have two cats and no dog. The man went out into the garden at 6 and Millie ate some bread he threw out. She was quite close but having read our flier he did not try to grab her. He reached slowly towards her and she went to the bottom of the garden and stayed for a while before going through the fence onto the railway embankment. My son in law and daughter trespassed to leave some food, while Jen and I stayed close to number the house. My son-in-law went for fish and chips and he had just returned when we had a phone call that Millie was on the railway embankment at Summer Road. We ran down the road and exchanged a few words and realised she was going towards the broken bit of fence at the end of a gully that we had explored last night. I ran up the road towards the gully, stopped before I got there and walked a step into it. Millie was there, interested but very wary, with a parked car between us. I slowly turned and walked away, dropping some tinned food and turned on to the road so out of Millie?s site. I gestured to Amy who was coming up with Max and Flossie, Millie?s siblings, that she was there. Amy took charge and walked in with the dogs down the gully past the car. Millie had gone to the gap in the fence so Amy turned the two dogs on the lead and told me to walk away back to the road because it was the dogs she was coming for. She joined the pack and we walked down the road until we met Jen. Millie moved towards her, tail wagging even more and Jen hugged her. Amy said go and open the car and Millie jumped straight in. She still had the halti collar and ordinary collar with name tag on. She settled immediately in the car with the other two. She stinks but we will not disturb her with attempting a clean up for 24 hours. Luckily my sense of smell is very poor. We are going to have a combined Boxing Day New Year party tonight until about 9 then to bed for a long sleep. We met lots of very kind and helpful people during the week, and had tremendous support all round, especially from you.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Is Millie home? xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Someone has contacted the owners to say that Millie was seen being put into a Fiesta car on Tuesday evening. Would explain why no sightings yesterday and the food in the shed untouched. Such a same as they were so close to catching her. Hopefully whoever has picked her up has done so with the best of intention and she'll be scanned and home soon. In case this doesn't happen I've sent the owners lots of suggestions and info to start from square one again!!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

So pleased to get this update from Sue, here's hoping that Millie will take shelter in the shed again tonight, she will be petrified of the fireworks poor girl. Fingers crossed for good news in the morning from Milton Keynes OESLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Fingers crossed shes home soon xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
There were five sightings of Millie yesterday. She's moved on about five miles to where she went missing. Twice a man has found her in his shed but she's run away. The owner of the house is kindly letting Millie's owner use the shed to make her a bed and leave food and hopefully catch her that way.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Stay safe and come home soon Millie xXxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Owners have contacted the dogs wardens, local kennels also put up posters in the park. Her coat is slightly longer than in the photo.
Millie went missing out on her walk in Sutton Park with her family on Boxing Day. She was scared by some thing and ran off. Millie is a very nervous dog who had a very bad start in life she was rescued by the RSPCA several years ago out of a house of 224 dogs in very bad conditions, unfortunately this has left her very nervous of strangers and so if spotted please can you call the numbers of the family rather than approach as she only trust a few people. Owners are desparate to have some sightings of her as she has seemed to have disappeared. Please contact Robin or Jenny on 0121 353 6308 / 07933788544 /  07999810257
