Email sent to owner requesting a photo. Have exlained we could use a similar one from the library, but seems a pity, and time is marching on. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks alfmar - we could use a similar photo, but owner has definitely got photos, and he wishes to use these specifically as he says Sam has a very distinctly shaped face.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Have spoken to owner on Ashmarks' request, as she is busy getting ready for a holiday. Sams owner has been working away today, which is why no photograph, but we will have one tomorrow. Quite honestly they could not have done more than they have done already, as far as notifying people and publicity. Its as if Sam has just disappeared off the face of the earth and its very out of character. He was on a walk near to his home when he ran around the back of a large house where there are a couple of ponds. He does this regularly and then comes back almost traight away, but this day he did not return. The ponds are not deep. The area is very rural and secluded and there are no regular dog walkers, fishermen, cyclists etc. The people in the house have labradors themselves and have also been out searching. All the farmers in the area have been notified. The area is so quiet, there is not even a pub, but owner has put notices up in post office, andshopps, and villages either way. Dog wardens have been informed in adjoining counties. Sam is a very fit and strong dog, but also very friendly, and would have gone in someones car or van quite easily if been picked up on the main road. Owner and family are very upset and will not stop looking for Sam. There have already been appeals on the radio and he is due to go in the local papers. Any suggestions would be most grateful. It really is most odd that he has not returned home. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Just spoken to owner son. Still no sign of Sam. Have texted owner at work and asked him to call for a chat later. Will update once I have spoken to him.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I have now emailed scenting and postering guidelines, Lincolnshire dog wardens and pounds, East Anglia Rescue centres, an information sheet, and Lincolnshire vets list. I have also requested a photo be sent to admin as soon as possible. Just about to send text also, to alert owner to the info. Hope there is good news after the weekend when the authorities are back on duty. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thank you so much for your help Steph and alfmar. Have just altered the area from Central, as Lincs comes under East Anglia on doglost. Co-ord for Lincs has been alerted and will be available to help out tomorrow. Hopefully we will have a photo of Sam by then. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Just spoken to Sam's owner. Vets , DWs have been informed as well as the microchip company. Photo of Sam will be up on site shortly. Poster suggestions are going to be emailed. It could be that Sam has been taken out of the area.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
please please please send in a photo of your dog so posters can be printed. xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi I?m sorry to hear your dog is missing. Firstly contact dog wardens, vets and local rescue centres?local council stray dogs holding kennel give them all a detailed description of your dog with any distinguishing marks/scars.., If you can go down there each day to check for your dog that is the best thing as they only have to hold a dog for 7 days before it can legally be rehomed or in some cases destroyed. It is also worth contacting the local police as if someone has found your dog they may well have contacted them. email admin@doglost.co.uk with a photo please if you haven?t already.Posters can be printed once a photo has been added by selecting Dog Poster 1 just above Dog Information (you must be registered and logged in). Get postering now?..as quickly and as many as you can physically manage. POSTER POSTER POSTER!!!?I cannot emphasize how important this is, from the posters you will get sightings and lots of extra pairs of eyes looking out for your dog. if your dog is tattooed or microchipped, then of course state so in your posters, but remember to phone the tattoo and microchip people... get them to look up your details and confirm they have the best and most current contact numbers for you. And a backup if possible. Poster bus stops, train stations, supermarket/retail park car parks, pet shops petrol stations, lay by snack vans, service stations, bins, poo bins, shopping centres, take away outlets, pubs, lamposts, caf?s, leisure centre?s,??.basically anywhere people go you need to poster like mad so nobody misses them? ask in as many places as you can if they will display a poster for you. Tell postman and binmen and give them a poster so they have your phone no handy? look up and call all local dog walkers and email them a poster if possible. in fact tell every single person you meet while searching as the more people know the much better chance of getting your dog back quickly. Contact the local newspaper and radio stations? take out an advert with a photo in the papers pets section lost and found. If you believe your dog has been stolen then it is very important you contact the police for a crime reference number?. And the postering publicity should have the aim of not only getting your dog home but making it too hot to handle,also check the area that your dog was taken from?..are there cctv camera?s that could have captured whoever took your dog?.
