Hi, I was Borris' owner I just came across this I know it's very late haha but we never managed to get him back unfortunately! I was very hurt at everything that was said but due to being under 18 I wasn't in a position to do anything apparently
I believe that my Shar pei may have been stolen I have his chip number he was advertised on gumtree as free to good home
boris's webpage no longer exists!

mmm - just read the bit about the ship address being contacted, but dog had been sold on...so I guess not likely to be Borris. :( Sorry!
Black Male Shar Pei picked up in Salford last friday - chipped to an andress near Bury? Owners not contactable. check out the 'Dogs in Salford' facebook page - finders are trying to contact owners:

Owner is having to go to court. Borris has a webpage with the full story and to try and raise funds towards the court costs. Wishing his owner lots of luck and look forward to seeing Borris back home with his owner. Jan x

This morning are doing an appeal for lost dogs on tomorrows show. Their email address is thismorning@itv.com, they need a picture of the dog and some back ground info about where it went missing etc. It needs to be sent to them by 6pm today.
I hope that you have some good news soon x
This is so heartbreaking :-( everything crossed here for him to be back with you asap. I know which kennels this boy was in, as I saw him come in & was checking several times a day in case he was listed on here as lost. GOOD LUCK.xxxLast edited: 2011-07-18 22:14:36 by Witchy-poos

Thanks Ade. :)

When speaking to owner yesterday advised contacting the papers in the area where Borris is thought to be, keeping everything crossed they will put something in.

The support on the Facebook page has been great, thank you again to everyone. Jan x
I'm going to email this to the M.E.N advertiser. Its disgusting you should have him home

Thanks everyone for helping spread the word. Borris was not chipped with Petlog but another Chip Co. Jan x
Petlog should not have changed thechip details without contacting you first, especially if you had already reported Borris spider missing. I would get your solicitor on to the chip company and demand to know where he is. Good luck in your fight to get Borris home.
This situation is appalling. How can Boris's new owners call themselves dog lovers if they won't return him to his real owners. I have had a rescue Whippet for 5 months & love her but I would still return her to her real owner& if it was proved she had a genuine owner who loved her. I'm disgusted & will join the FB page

FACEBOOK page has been renamed to 'Reunite Shar Pei Borris The Spider With His family'
Cannot believe this. Outrageous on pounds poor handling of Borris and appalling attitude of the new owners. Genuine "dog people" could never behave like this as certainly not in the dogs best interest! Would be understandable if we were talking years not a few weeks! Joined on FB and will share! X

Thanks lesleyjane for posting the details greatly appreciated. :) doglaw details are given to owners in cases when they maybe needed.

The word is spreading fast on Facebook, a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who is sharing and supporting his owner. Jan x

There is a great website, doglaw.co.uk, they have a solicitor who specialises in dog related matters, the number is 0906 515 1108 (office hours) and solicitors name is Trevor Cooper. Good luck, I think his new owners are acting despicably but don't know about the legal position. Also, big boos to the vet concerned.

Update from owner posted on Facebook:

More info on Borris - The MP of our town is going to help me get him back!! He is going to do whatever it takes because he believes it's sickening and sympathises all in all we should have Borris back within 2 months!!
hi again, thanks for your lovely responses, going to speak to the kennels tomorrow, have no idea of new owners names, just the area they live in.
If they dont resolve it with me I will be starting aa protest!
So sorry to read this, if there is anything we can do to help please shout up. Good luck with the solicitors xxx
BorrisTheSpider...I am so sorry to hear what you are having to go through to get your boy back! Do hope that all the action you are taking brings a positive result. It is such a shame that the family that now have Boris will not give him back to you. I am just wondering if the 'public' could help in any way!! If we knew the family's name or address or even if they could be contacted online! Boris is a much loved family dog and they need to know jut how much he is missed. If the public could get this point across to them it may help. There are so many dog lovers on here looking for their own dogs, all with differant circumstances and they are all willing to help one another. I am a member of a doglost group on fb and have posted Boris's page onto it - hope you don't mind. Ade Brandwood is admin. of this page and he lives in Oldham - he himself just recently has been reunited with his loving dog Suki, who was also rehomed. His story is a lot differant to yours but i do feel that you can get alot of support and help...
There was a dog on D/L a few months ago,same situation..they took it to vets to b chipped..but vet found it was already chipped....but the vet refused to hand the dog back...we were all saying...Well done Vet...Why carnt all vets do this!!!!
Yes, definitely get onto a solicitor!! You did everything correctly, they had no right to rehome your dog. Can't imagine what you are going through. As far as I knew, if someone wants to change the chip details they get in touch with the chip company who then try and contact the registered owner and ask permission. It's worrying if the vets can make this decision. Hopefully your solicitor will be able to help, but may need to involve police. Wishing you every luck in the world.
hello, I'm the rightful owner of Borris.
I have now found more information. He is located somewhere in Accrington.(CLayton-Le-Moors) THE VETS HAVE ALLOWED THE NEW OWNERS TO CHANGE OUR DETAILS ON THE MICROCHIP, KNOWING WE ARE FIGHTING TO GET OUR DOG BACK!
I've gone through everything else. i've also contacted RSPCA and they are behind me 100%. I am going to see a solicitor tomorrow morning to get my dog back! Thank you for your positive commentsLast edited: 2011-07-08 17:41:34 by BorrisTheSpider
Mark and I read on the net that the original owner is the legal owner and can claim the dog back even if found years later, they have the proof of ownership in the microchip.Worrying i know that yet another kennel hasnt detected the dogs microchip! Wondering yet again if at best some kennels arnt up to the job or is it actually something a little more sinister!Read Mollylollipops recent posts.gail xxx

Agree mojomoment, a horrible situation for Boris' owners. Surely this can be resolved amicably? After all the original owners can prove he is their dog via the chip.
Ok, so what happens next then?? Surely the original owners are entitled to get him back? I can not even begin to imagine how the original owners must feel - I live in Burnley so it is very worrying to think that this can happen even though I have my dog chipped. :-9
Sorry to see that BORRIS SPIDER is missing.
