Dog found http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog_blog.php?dogId=46077
Is George still missing? There is another lookalike on the strayaction page picked up in South Durham - ref S54 Ref 78/12 SOUTH DURHAM

I know George is microchipped but this 2nd strayaid dog (Bob mentioned below) is worth checking before he goes up for adoption tomorrow. I will text owner x
just spotted the same dog on stray aid as Hayley - logged on to comment but found she's got there first. I'd agree - definitely worth a look
Another dog similar to George gone on strayaid.co.uk today (17/5/12) Please check, dog looking skinny and slightly longer coat but certainly worth a check.x

Thanks owner for looking after found dog 39069 and managing last night to get it safely to a kennel space...not the easiest thing on a Sunday evening to do...so have Bumped George still missing...
yes she was very certain, she said she was very experienced with dogs so made sure she looked.

Oh what a shame it wasn't George !! I presume she was really certain that the found dog was intact ? X
Just to let you know I had a call from the asda staff member who had the black dog.

She had taken it to the police station but there was no one there so she brought it back and a man took him and said he'd contact strayaid.

The dog she had was an intact male so it wasn't George but she said he looked very similar to the photo.

So no joy there x

Hi KERRYSHOME the Asda store must have a staff canteen, rest room or staff notice board and it would be a good idea if you make a notice saying you have reports that members of staff picked up a similar dog to George on 10 th April and that you need to find out what happened to this dog afterwards. Then ask a member of management or team leader if they will display the notice in one of these staff areas. Don't just leave it with a cashier or at the cigarette kiosk though as it may get forgotten about. I hope you have some news of George very soon x

Thanks for updating.
If this area falls within the remit of a different dog warden then report George to them as well.The person who picked up the dog may have told the dog warden they were happy to look after him until his owner came forward.
they may also use different holding kennels.
As you said ensure you poster the area. The manager of the store may be able to tell you who was the duty manager or supervisor on the day/ time he was possibly sighted and picked up. They may then be able to give you more information.
they may also have CCTV
Also check with the vets around the area in case he was taken to any of them.
If he has been picked up for safe keeping he should be reported to the dog warden as is required by LAW
Fingers crossed that George is home very soon

possible sighting at Asda Peterlee on Tues evening 10th April.
Dog fitting George's description was picked up by Asda staff, no one sure what happened to him after that.

Thanks to all keeping their eye out x
Not sure if this could be George but might be an idea to check it out just incase.

Have spoken to the owner.Photo requested.
George escaped from the garden yesterday early evening by jumping over a wall. He is wearing a collar with ID tag with owners contact details and is microchipped.
Owner has contacted the microchip company and all relevant authorities.
George is around 5 years old and is a rescue dog.He is normally walked on the lead as he has a history of running off.
Fingers crossed this much loved family pet is home soon
