One year yesterday since Jethro went missing. I still look out for him when walking round Ranmore. I hope one day his chip will bring him home. xx

There has been a fox terrier found in the kingston area today - could this be Jethro?
Hi, my Chihuahua has been stolen from the same area as Jethro, I am putting posters on the same fence posts! Any news? I have some CCTV footage of 3 cars going past my house at the same time that Kizzi was taken. It would be good to pool information. Good luck in your search. x
Thanks Sue x I have text the owner about found dog 49097 x
Could it be dog ID 49097 is Jethro as says Fox Terrier type?
Is there any news on Jethro. I had a brief glimpse of a lady walking a fox terrier this morning on Chalk Pit lane in Dorking. She turned into one of the allies as I drove past so it was just a quick look. The dog wasn't wearing a coat.

POLITE REQUEST from a local home owner....

Dear Jane,

Thank you for your call. Please find attached a photo of the notice attached with packing tape to our white gatepost at the end of Pilgrims Way in Westhumble.
Please could you organise for it to be removed without leaving any marks or removing any paintwork. If the owner of the dog lives in Westhumble then perhaps you could forward my number for them to call and I can explain the best way to attach the poster if they don't live in this parish then they are more than welcome to post on the allocated notice board near the bridge near Boxhill and Westhumble train station.

Many thanks for your help and cooperation.

Have reported Jethro missing to Network Rail as Dorking to London line and Dorking to Guildford lines are in the area, although quite a distance from where he went missing. Last edited: 2013-01-29 12:53:34 by Patsy
Hi Shereen - yes, have just been speaking to Barley, Jethro's owner, who is very grateful and will pass advice email on to her family and friend, Jenny, who is helping in the search. ADMIN: Barley agrees that we have to accept that he may have been stolen and that a reward should be offered. Please add 'Reward offered for his safe return or information' on poster. Also could email alerts be sent out to all areas around M25 (Kent, Sussex, Essex, Herts, as well as Central London) in case stolen. Thank you all helpers and Jayne for your support . . and thank you Shereen. Px
Patsy...I have sent you advice email to forward on to Jethro's owner...could you put a quick message on here to say you received it ok please?
I keep checking to see if there is any news. I wish I could offer more help but i work full time and its dark when I leave. I will keep checking back in case there is any thing else I can do. Hope you have some news soon.
We have a dog walking business in Dorking and have alerted all our clients about Jethros disappearance and also members of the agility club we attend.. the more people that know the better. Hope he's home soon, we're always on the lookout when we're walking up there.
No luck today, covered Woods west of St.Teresa School, Back of Randmore farm and top part of White Downs. Going to take Ella out again tomorrow to see if she can find her little friend. Barley if you could pop that bit of bedding over that might help Ella hunt for Jethro. Beverley and Neil

Thank you very much, Nells, for looking. It is so good to know that people who don't know Jethro are so kind. We have spent every day looking all over Ranmore Common, and calling, but so far he has not been spotted, except for the possible sighting reported three days ago by someone near Stoneyrock. We will keep on looking!
We walked up round Denbies and the woods at the top this afternoon, I'm afraid we didn't see any sign of him. I hope he's home soon.
Jenny D
Thank you to everyone who has been out looking for Jethro. The woods on Ranmore have been searched every day but they are so extensive it is impossible to look everywhere. Hopefully there will be more walkers etc out now that the snow is thawing, and perhaps he may be sighted again. But please look out wherever you are, as he may have moved further on. He is very much missed and we do hope to find him soon.
I have forwarded the info to friends who walk up and around Polesdon Lacey. I hope you find him soon.
Dorking Museum @dorkingmuseum have kindly retweeted to their 1,101 followers. Locals circulating link as well.
Possible sighting at NT Stonyrock Car Park on Ranmore Common yesterday afernoon (Weds).
Have told Polesden Lacey wardens who went up to check and poster - owner had already postered area. All Polesden Lacey staff have been emailed posters and aware (thank you Jane at Polesden!) and posters on all staff notice boards etc. Owner has put up lots of good posters in West Humble, back of Denbies area. VERY IMPORTANT: Barley and Jenny please notify DogLost immediately of any poss sightings so that we can update Jethro's page quickly. Thanks so much.Last edited: 2013-01-24 17:25:09 by Patsy
Still no news. Had long telephone conversation with Jenny last night (friend of owner). She and Jethro's owner spent all day postering the area. they've done a great job - I saw posters in Attlees and Wolvens feed stores yesterday and lots of locals are aware. doing more postering today. I'm working at NT Polesden Lacey today so will spread the word . .
Sorry false alarm sighted dog more likely to have been a staffie :(
Possibly seen yesterday near Holmwood by friend of friend who saw post on Facebook. Info passed on, waiting for more precise details and time

Chip update requested for Halo Scanner
Still busy emailing posters to useful local contacts. Just received nice message from Nina at Stepping Stones pub in West Humble: "Have printed copies off for you - good luck - let us know if any results. Our wishes and hopes are with you. Kind regards. Tina". So, local helpers, please email posters if you cannot get out postering yourself - it all helps in the search . .

Denise Dff: yes, he is very friendly and will come to strangers.
Sadly, no news yet. I've just been speaking on the phone to Barley, Jethro's owner. It is Barley's phone number that is on the poster now. She and her family have been busy postering and searching, but no luck so far. Have advised Barley to call Jayne for advice on scenting and also to give Jethro's chip details to DogLost as suggested by CJ on here. The chip company has been informed. Jethro has been off hunting in the woods before, but has always come back to Barley after about 20 mins, He goes go to ground, so could be down a rabbit hole/fox hole. It is very sheltered in the woods and plenty of rabbits so he could be hunting for days . . . . there was a reported sighting on Sunday down by Tanners Hatch, NT youth hostel cottage in the valley south of Polesden Lacey, but we are not convinced it was him - similar dog, but with no coat or collar, a bit like a small Airedale. Snow is melting now around here, so riders and vineyard estate workers will be out and about more which will help in the search. Have advised Barley to poster outside schools, sorting office, doctors surgeries, railway stations - all places where lots of people will see. Also to contact Dorking Advertiser for next week's issue, but hopefully he will be home by then. Last edited: 2013-01-23 10:05:13 by Patsy

Saw a poster for this dog whilst catching another dog in the snow yesterday in the bottom end of West Horsley. PLEASE can DOGLOST also copy in the GU and KT24 postcodes as both are close by... The more people aware the better. Now going to put some posters up in the Guildford Area.

Maybe Jenny can pass on that it would be great if microchip number was quoted? only owners or those with admin access can see this but it is so very important as it then is linked with the Halo microchip scanner

I’ve found that it helps to print out an A4 sheet of paper cut into business-card size slips, each with brief details and your phone number on. Give them to all the local dog walkers, postmen etc. you meet. Then if someone has news when they’re out and about they don’t need to find a poster or log on to the site to contact you. Glad he's chipped.
I will pass on to others that I know walk this area too. I can't walk until after dark tonight and dont have a torch etc with me at work, but could help poster Burford bridge/carpark on the way home if that is helpful.
Have also emailed Polesden Lacey wardens who cover Ranmore as well.
Jethro is still missing. I've just been speaking to Jenny, a friend of the owner, whose phone number is on the poster. Jethro ran off on a walk in woods above Denbies Vineyard. The walk started from the car parked in Denbies Vineyard car park. Jethro lives in Dorking, but probably does not know his way home as usually walks from the car. He is wearing a brown dog coat and also a collar, so we are worried that he may have got caught up in branches in the woods. So Jenny says could people please look in the woods on each side of the paths if they are out walking up there. He is also tagged and chipped. ADMIN: PLEASE PUT INFO RE TAG, CHIP, COLLAR AND COAT ON POSTER. Jenny and her friends know the area very well and have alerted local stables, cottages, dog warden etc. I've also emailed poster to useful local contacts this morning. Have advised Jenny to poster in Dorking town where lots of people will see poster as well as in the hills where the walkers go. There were lots of people out walking the snow yesterday so our hope is that he has been picked up and maybe taken out of he area. Many people come down from London at the weekends to walk around here. So let's hope someone comes forward with good news soon . . Keep safe little Jethro . . .
