Any news?

some of the posters i put up on weds have been taken down. the ones next to the play area and fields immediately behind abbeydale community centre were removed when i checked yesterday. all the other ones further away were still there. havent been able to look today but will go back tomorrow
Phoned the highway agency and they said they had nothing to report. He usually walks in a loop from beckford road around upton and back again, or along the stream and sometimes around the back to tescos express. I don't think he would still be out on his own by now as he is definately not an outdoorsy dog. I keep checking people walking dogs incase they think he's a stray and have decided to adopt him xLast edited: 2012-11-09 14:09:43 by KatJ

Hi KatJ, where do you normally walk Heff? is there anywhere he visits regularly on foot, just trying to think of possible places to keep an eye on whilst I am out and about. It is worth contacting local taxi firms, they are driving around all hours, extra eyes are what we need at the moment, we need sightings x
yep, called them yesterday and they took my details and said they would call me back, but they didn't?x
Hi Katj , did you speak to the motorway peeps as I sugggested
Hi KatJ it would be quite difficult for Heff to get on the motorway, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.thinking of putting more posters up today over Upton
Thanks for all you're help with posters. Still no word. I phoned the council on Tuesday morning..glad to see they are getting the word around...Have phoned Cheltenham dog shelter again and still nothing. We are worried he may have run into the m5 cuz of being frightened, but hopefully not!He should be in the citizen and glos echo today x
I've put some posters up on other side of Upton lane,red admiral and damson close tonight. No sign of Heff hopefully now fireworks have calmed down he might show himself.

Well done all - great work Jack Russell!! Posters are so important in getting the word out there.
Hurry home Heff.

today i put posters up along the brook, in abbeydale community centre, i gave a poster to postwoman who will put it up back in the depot, i stopped to chat to some council workers and turned out one of them actually works for dog warden services and lives near where heff went missing. he didnt know about him, if not done already can owner ring council 396396 and report dog missing (or remind them that dog is missing)? he took a poster as well. i spoke to all the dog walkers i met and some of them had already seen the posters so word is getting around. a few people asked how big dog was so maybe a full body pic would help? a local office did some extra photocopying for me but the suggestion below of printing a bulk order is a great idea. the printers by kings square in town are very reasonableLast edited: 2012-11-07 16:09:23 by Jack Russell
Thanks everyone, still no news. Have printed more posters and thank you to everyone who has been having a look and putting them up too I really appreciate it! Fingers crossed we find him soon. Am ringing around the vets/wardens/cheltenham dogs again this morn to see if anything has turned up x

Check if your insurers will cover the cost of printing some posters. We have just been through this trauma, so thoughts truly with you. We got the poster to local print/copy shop who printer it onto a bright yellow background. And the word Missing in red. It caught everyone's attention and showed up more than all other posters And notice boards etc. laminate them, tie them in posts. We did 500 ( 100 A4 and 400A5) they worked....cost about £60, the best £60 ever spent. Get the poster onto Facebook and twitter, also onto vets, local authorities website and Facebook. Put a poster on your front door with a note to the postman to take back to the sorting office, give poster to the bin men...... Its amazing how people want to help, but you need to tell them what you want them to do. Good luck and thinking of you. A good map showing all fields and bridle paths and farms helped us, I think it came from rural England, a kind farmer printed one off for us, ask your local farmers.. It helps to coordinate searching. Thinking of you x
i didn't see him well i was out today :( but i keep on looking. I got this on my facebook page hope you find him soon.
Hi KatJ I met you this afternoon,had a look around earlier but too dark and still quite a few fireworks going off. I've printed some posters out and will put some up tomorrow for you.

Keeping his info "bumped" on FB on my business page and Lost and Found in Glos: https://www.facebook.com/groups/333888613287842/ KatJ please join the page if you're on FB so you can reply to people trying to help :-)
Hope Heff is home safe VERY soon.
He's usually quite friendly and goes up to most people and their dogs. Yes please the more posters the better. Thank you
Jack Russell
does he like other dogs? will it help to search with our dogs or will that scare him? do you need more posters putting up?
Hi guys, thank you for all your help so far! Please continue the search. I have been out having another look and am going out now to put some more posters up. Have left numbers with all the vets, councils, dog wardens, police and rescues. Hoping something will turn up x
Thanks !

Thanks Maria, they dont im afraid, but I have a list of all rescues in SW, SE , Mids, etc, which I pass on to owners if their dogs are not chipped.
Animal Magic Chelt
Just thinking - when you send alerts out do they also get emailed to the Rescue Centres in those areas? :-) x
Animal Magic Chelt
Ah so glad the owners got him on here! We were sharing info via FB last night and friends went out looking too. Do we know exactly where he went missing from?
Fingers crossed someone took him in for the night and will be in touch today. x
Thanks Jayne

Heff went missing when a firework scared him, he got out of his collar and bolted.Lots of fireworks going off so he could have gone anywhere. Owner has started postering and searching. She has called, Cheltenham Dogs home, Teckells, local councils and all the vets, Ive suggested the highways people, and she is next to the M5 . Im sending out advice sheets now. And I will ask for alerts to go out
