Hi Paul, I will be amazed if that isn't Dave, i cant stop comparing the piccys, ive even got laminating sleeves(cos i didnt have any tracing paper) and put them on the screen blown the pictures up and drawn around the shapes! and to me they match , there are some very slight differences but only slight and that could be becuse of wieght loss ,how mad is that !its driving me crackers if its not him he has a double!!! please let me know how you get on , fingers crossed!

thanks again guys !Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi there , so sorry it wasn't Dave , What a shame, but like you say hope he is looked after. I am sure one day your Dave will come home safe good luck and all the best with your search . Christine P.S. I shop in rhyl so if i ever see that dog i will be checking to see if he has his bits!!! I convinced myself it was him.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
hi chris i have spoken to paul at the rescue centre and the dog they found was not castrated as you can just about see in the pics whereas dave had just been castrated when he went missing. i have studied the pics together and as you say they are very similar although i can spot some slight differences. i really appreciate your help and i hope this boy is well cared for.apparently he was claimed and has gone back to rhyl. i still feel dave will come home one day.hopefully the tattoo will help trace him. thanks againLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi there , He does look so much like your Dave , I saved the pictures and put them side by side and i was amazed at how the markings are so much alike . You said on your message that Dave was not castrated ,he could be now ? if hes been picked up before the animal rescues usually have them castrated . I cant believe they didnt check him for his tattoo! I do hope its him and that he can come home . If you need any help this end please let us know you have our number we dont live far from the kennels and perhaps we could go and check him out for you if they could arrange that for you .Did you say he had a scar on his foot? good luck !let us know how you get on . ChristineLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I am sorry I dont't know your area but there a site worth checking out as it has pics of found dogs and have a few boxers. There are a few districts within it so ensure you check all including Cannock district which is in very small print and could be missed! http://hometown.aol.co.uk/ianwebblara/myhomepage2dog.html. Good luck x Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Have you contacted the breed rescue's? Perhaps he went through one of them? There is Essex and Lincs Boxer Rescue, Thames Valley BR and London and Home Counties Boxer Welfare. I'll put the word out on the chatty UKBoxerdogs yahoo group. Hope Dave soon comes home. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Paul, I'll change the poster to make it more obvious.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Dave does have very distinctive markings & he seems to be really big for a boxer hopefully this will help identify him more easily, Dave has been missing a while now so whoever has him won't be hiding him away, I really hope you find him Paul Dave is absolutely stunning boxer & looks quite a character xxx yvonneLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
dave has got very noticeable markings indeed !!! come on dave show yaself fella Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
hi there, to clarify the situation dave has been missing since nov 4th 2004! despite extensive postering and publicity at the time including the bbc inside out programme i never had any news at all. i know he is out there somewhere, he is tattooed and has that distinctive mark on his chest. he is also big for a boxer and very lively!he would be about 3and a half now. unfortunately i discovered dog lost a week or so after he had gone. the secret is to get on there straight away and publicise big time to deter the thieves. thanks to all the dog lost team and never give up hope. paul the cabbie.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
You say Dave has been missing since November, but there are posts dated January 2005. Has Dave been missing since November 2004??Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Saw a similar dog at Battersea dogs home yesterday-but the very efficient staff had already checked and markings were different. Good to know they check this site daily.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Really hope that Dave is back with you very soon. Thank God you got Ralph back.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
paul the vegan dog lover
I'm sorry to see Dave is missing, and I hope he comes home safely soon. Have you tried putting something in your local news paper, sometimes that helps to locate lost dogs. I'll store your number on my mobile phone just in case, I'm always in that area so I'll keep a look out for him for you.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi I dont know Essex too well but I recognise some of the places because of a friend of mine who is involved with a league that is held most Sundays with teams from all over Essex and London so I have sent Dave's poster to her to display at the venues they are to use this Season. I know some of the players and they own Boxers (as I do) so I know they will take an interest......Jan Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hello Paul, I'm so sorry that Dave is not back home with you yet, i live on off Bread and Cheese hill and am always looking at the boxers that i come across, i even asked someone about their brindle boxer once! I agree with the lady above, perhaps Poster etc again to Jog memories? I will put another poster up in Tesco's, you never know, it just might help. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
max's mummy
Paul has there been any news? I think you should start postering again, a hurtfull and grulling process (Maybe ask Jayne to re word it with still missing etc) but i think worth while just to jog peoples memories and try vets etc maybe in a 20 - 30 mile radius they might think you have him back by now!! lol daisy xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hope you find Dave soon. I don't live in your area, but it looks like you're going to get loads of help. Take care. xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
dear dave hurry home p.g. I have friends who live in Vange area so will print off poster and ask them to do their best for Dave.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
max's mummy
Paul i have found your page and what a beautiful boy he is!! Fear not we will find him!! I need to look at a map to pin point were he was taken and try and work out realistically which areas are worth looking in. Are there areas with large council estates near you or gypsie camps?? I know someone who knows alot of people down the Essex way so i will start to spread the word! lol Daisy xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hello, Have you found your Dave yet? Would you like me to put his poster up in Tesco at pitsea for you? Kind regardsLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
When i was taking my Dog to my Vet at London road Benfleet, I took this Poster with me, but you had beaten me to it! The Nurse told me what had happened, cannot imagine what you and your family must be going through, we will be looking at all Boxers we come across from now on. This shows that this site really works. We do hope you find your Dave. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Thanks Paula!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
work in a Local vets in Vange will put his poster up on our Lost board and in our book, keeping my fingers crossed PaulaLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
