What a fabulous thing to see Ray so happy in his new home...beautiful boy and sure he's forgiven quickly for his chewing! ...ok maybe not the log book! Stay safe Ray xx
Lorna
Lovely news Rottie. Wishing you all much happiness and non-chewed belongings!
DogLostOwl
I have bumped this so that Ray's supporters can see the photo of him in his forever home with rottie & co.
Esther
Great news rottie. By now it would have been a big upset for him to have another home and he obviously adores you and Paul (and various belongings)I have a rescue dog and as someone put it, by doing that you really help two dogs, the one you take in gives a space for another dog to be rescued .I am sure you have made the right decision
zena
So so happy you have decided to keep him,lucky boyx
rottie
After lots of discussion we have decided to make Ray part of the family for good, he has really settled and although we dont have probably all the time he deserves he gets atleast 1 good walk a day and several good runs loose around my garden which he loves!! not a massive garden but big enough for him to really get some speed up,he has alot to learn but my other boys are helping with that too, he does on occasions get alittle telling off from my eldest 3 legged rotty. Hopefully we have made the right decision, just so many others looking for homes, and he is so loving to us now and is begining to trust alittle. Does like to chew and collect things, did eat Pauls mot and log book for his car and a remote control, wasnt popular that day, everything now is very high out of harms way! Thank you for thinking of him.xx
Esther
Has he been found a new home yet? Or is he still asleep on your sofa rottie!
zena
Wish you could keep him rottie!x
rottie
he is fine thankyou, several welfares looking for suitable home for him, want to get people who know what thet are doing to hopefully find him somewhere, they will do home checks ect, i can keep for the moment but feel he could find someone with more time for him. Will be heartbreaking when he goes though. X
Esther
How is he getting on now rottie?
zena
Lovely photos so happy to see him
janiejewel1649

Well done to all involved in catching this dog.Thank god he is safe now.
Carol
Yes a home with Rottie sounds good :-) xxxxxxx
lunasmum
Sad but hopefully he'll get a home where he's wanted <3
cindy
lunsmum apparently the owner showed no interest in trying to catch the dog and now is un-contactable. So I guess he is not a lost dog.

Rottie, you are a real super hero, to travel 100 mile round trip on numerous occasions to help this poor dog is really fantastic. So pleased that your efforts and those of all the other helpers had a positive outcome. Thank you to all of you and I hope that this poor dog has a bright future ahead of him. Would also love to see a picture when you have time.

rottie
no not king 46284 sorry that would have been nice, thank you so much for all lovely comments,has been a long one this time as distance from home, thank you so much to ray who loaned us bigger trap and lots of advice that finally caught him, also to cat ladies and cafe lady for lots of info and food supply to keep him in the area, he is in a bit of a sorry state but nothing he cant bounce back from,nothing a few vets trips cant sort i am sure. Thanks again to all that helped, and onto the next probably!

Just took the call from rottie to tell me this boy had finally been caught. Absolutely fantastic news! Vicky- you have worked so hard for this boy- you are an absolute star and it was a pleasure to meet you. Can't stop bawling- have been so worried about him. Thank you everyone that helped him xx
Esther
BRILLIANT !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well done to you all, especially rottie and Paul. You have all worked so hard for this dog. All of you must be so thrilled. All of you, the cat group, the residents, dog warden, council and all helpers, rottie and Paul should be heartily congratulated. Well done.
DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
Well done!
DogLostOwl
This hound, who appears to be a saluki lurcher, has at last been trapped by rottie and her housemate Paul, after several long vigils, and with the help of some ripe Stilton! He has just been to vet. He has an injury to his back leg which could be from RTA, also various uncomfortable sores, and 40+ ticks were removed. He has no chip and the person who claimed to have just bought him showed little interest in trying to catch him and is now I am told uncontactable. Hound is now being fostered by rottie while he recovers and has treatment for his injury, then he will be neutered and homed. Thank you everyone who has helped with this long campaign to catch him, not only dog rescue volunteers but also feral cat group, local residents, dog warden and council.
Esther
Keep looking to see how things are going. Keeping everything crossed
rottie
slow steps,have been monitering from a distance, he looks ok to be fair, as soon as he hears anyone he is gone so not surprised no sightings, is being fed regular, my trap not tall enough so waiting for bigger trap from rescue in birmingham.Dont worry i am on the case.xx
Carol
Rottie how is this poor sweetie any chance of trapping it yet I can't stop thinking about it , makes me cry xxxx
rottie
food still going, due over to moniter nxt day or so
Carol

duffs54
So pleased he has someone watching out for him fingers crossed xxxx
Carol
Thank you to the local lady ur a star xxxx
Esther
Many thanks to the local lady.
rottie
local lady who lives near to restaurant is helping out, she had been feeding anyway and food has been going ,last seen on the 4th by her, she is going to keep me informed of times approx food going so i can go back over with the trap.She is so near can check food every hour or so,so not being left down and attractiing vermin.Restaurant bins raided on the 7th as she was late putting food out, we dont know is definatly our hound however worth a go i think. x thank you again to this ladyLast edited: 2013-12-10 10:59:58 by rottie

Good to meet you this morning Vicky. Sorry I had to rush off to work. You had a very long cold day - a real shame there was no sign of this poor boy.
rottie
No luck,will await sightings,lots of local help who will keep me updated.Thanks very much to ladies today for watching trap whilst i had breaks.xx
Myhal
Also to add, it is thought to be micro chipped.I am checking with local bus depot on Monday as a bus driver nearly caught it a few weeks ago. Need definite confirmation of size and colouring.Last edited: 2013-11-30 17:55:10 by Myhal

Been out today and met lovely Vicky, who has spent all day at castle with a dog trap in position. Various children have seen it many times going between Tolney Lane and town centre. Apparently it is a Brindle brown Saluki, either worse for wear or rough coated. It is wearing a tan/orange collar with part lead hanging down. It is called Rocky, according to one of the boys. It is in an emaciated state. Trap was set with smelly sardines, awaiting an update as I left at 3.40pm. Vicky was staying unti 6pmish and Lilli Teauge was going to walk the park area either side of the river later. dog was last seen by a local lad a week ago last Wednesday. Two children said they saw it a few days ago, but not sure how reliable this is.Last edited: 2013-11-30 17:54:30 by Myhal
Esther
Glad rottie now has local help. Best of luck to you all
DogLostOwl
We now have some local help for rottie, thank you.
rottie
please also any sightings must be reported as dog warden not getting many sightings now,the more sightings the better as will keep trap set hopefully.
DogLostOwl
Thank you, will get that done.
Lorna
Worth sending alerts to Newark and surrounding areas? Can't see that any have been sent looking at posts below and it might be some local doglost helpers aren't aware.
DogLostNinja - Area Volunteer, Lincolnshire
The comment below from Owl needs posting on the lincs fb group as im positive there was somebody on there that is local....
DogLostOwl
If there is anyone local to Newark who can assist rottie by leaving food for this hound? It's a long round trip for her. If you can help, please call or text me on 07772 432366.
Esther
Keeping everything crossed
rottie
if dog warden no luck this week i will be going over again first thing saturday with my trap as he is unable to trap at weekends, have been over a few times and left food. Last edited: 2013-11-27 12:09:34 by rottie
DogLostOwl
Dog warden is back is touch with rottie, he is still trying to trap this hound.
DogLostOwl
Both Rottie and I have spoken with people at council, awaiting call back. Will post as soon as we have news.
Carol
Any news on this poor dog yet Owl xx
Esther
Any luck Owl?
DogLostOwl
I can give them a call on Monday, thanks for trying and I am sure the hound will appreciate the food.
rottie
Been hear since around 6pm, no sign,will leave food before i leave,need to speak to dog warden re plan of action but struggling,might see if owl can get any news out of them.Different person calling might help.
DogLostOwl
Sighted around 3 this afternoon, same place as last Saturday and following same route. Many thanks to the 2 young lads who called me. They said the hound looked very thin & ribby. I think they had a better view of him/her as it was daylight, and the 2 guys who saw him last week were there after dark. Have passed info on to rottie.
zena
Thank you for updates feel so useless living so far away,have been speaking to nice lady at the council,but not managed to speak to Eddie,must be getting food OK if looks ok
rottie
they are trying to get this dog as quickly as possible however as with everything else they only have so much time, if i was closer would take a trap myself however it is still a waiting game and the dog warden has already got a trap set as far as i know, i am sure the dog warden is doing everything possible. If you wanted to try to get an update the gentlemans name is Eddie, these dogs do not make themselves easy to catch, the good thing is people are not now trying to chase it and looks as if is taking the food as saturday sighting was of an ok looking dog. Atleast keeping away from the roads. Last edited: 2013-11-19 11:27:25 by rottie

Can't believe they haven't caught that poor dog yet!
rottie

Sighted this evening in same area by a couple of people who saw him running loose then saw a poster. Too late to call the dog warden, greyhound was staying well out of reach but is now looking in reasonable shape and moving ok. Thank you for your call, sir.
rottie

Esther
Keeping fingers crossed
DogLostOwl

zena
Its not looking good is it!feel so sad
rottie
just chased dog warden again, no new sightings as far as i can tell,have left a message for him to call me again,can only hope that either someone has managed to get this dog and hasnt reported it, or that we get new sightings, warden is aware will update as soon as i hear anything good or bad. Vicky
zena
Any news on greyhound?
zena
That's good fingers crossed,hope good news soon
rottie
Thanks esther thats very kind of you,have postered around the town and castle,as quite a drive will now keep intouch with the dog warden who seems very keen to trap this dog,can take a while with a trap but i am sure dog warden will get him/her! Also called in a police station and spoke with a very helpful police lady.
Esther
Good luck with this one rottie, you did such a brilliant job with Velvet
zena
Hope its soon!
DogLostOwl
The longer a greyhound is out on the run, the smarter it gets I am afraid. It is going to be a question of time, patience and teamwork.
zena
I rang council in my lunch hour today still have not got dog poor thing why can't it see we are trying to help it!Last edited: 2013-11-08 17:18:41 by zena
rottie
struggling to get the dog warden, do know he is trying to get this dog but might take aliitle time, i am going to poster tomorrow hopefully to try to get as many sightings repoted as possible, this will help us in positioning of trap in correct area, just incase anyone has postered already please let me know as 100 mile round trip.Thanks everyone for help.
rottie
apparently dog warden is aware of the owner,will update as soon as any news, will chase dog warden again this morning but as council offices number is office hours. x

DogLostOwl
Have changed numbers on poster, also updated some of the info. The landline is the one to contact for the council, to get message to Eddie the dog warden. The second one is my mobile. We appreciate everyone's help in this.
rottie
thanks very much for all help,need to keep dog warden informed of sightings as may need to move the trap, if anyone is in a position to put posters up so people know to ring dog warden that would be great.Owl i am sure would not mind taking all info and letting dog warden know or updating this site. DOG WARDEN NAME IS EDDIE ON 01636 655571. i can come over on saturday and poster if no one local available, i am ashbourne so approx 50 miles away. if anyone could poster please could you update on here. thanks very muchLast edited: 2013-11-07 15:52:34 by rottie

Saw the dog in the Church Grounds at Newark yesterday and blocked it in an alley but couldnt get anyone to help secure the gaps and it just got by me. Went out for 2 hours last night with partnet at tea time for 2 hours but presume it had gone to ground. No sighting this morning but that was 6ish. Dog is petrified and was quite frantic yesterday. Very Very thin. Will look out for it today...and update Dog Warden if sighted

Hope this one is caught soon especially with fireworks etc.xx
DogLostOwl
I have just spoken with a very helpful lady at Newark Council. She tells me that this dog has been running around the same area for at least a week, and several people have reported sightings. The dog warden is keen to catch and kennel it, as it looks to be in very poor condition. If you see it, please notify the council on 01636 655571.
