Your never forgotten beautiful boy and leaving a hug for your Mum xx
I have just seen an item posted on Facebook about ten dogs that have been found. Some appear to be Spaniels but all ten dogs are not shown. It has been copied by Kerry Hartwell from Julie Johnson's entry on Facebook's Hesketh Buy and Sell Swap Shop Hesketh Bank and Tarleton. I am hoping that on of the dogs may be Red or if not that some of the dogs pictured are missing and may have a chance of being reunited.

I knew the 1st anniversary of Red going missing would be hard but didn't realise just how hard it would be today. I think a nice long walk in a pretty spot to clear the mind and think about our boy is in order.

Could this possibly be Red? Is also being advertised for a price and with a different reason for rehoming on Gumtree. Hard to be sure from photo but tail may not be docked at all but needs to be double checked to rule out Thanks
sorry, post says about 12 mths of age xx
photo is very similar to Red x

Been contacted today with possible sighting in Banks and not too far from home. Please keep your eyes peeled more sighting needed to help us define a smaller area to search. There is just so much open farm and marsh land around here.
The link to the dog found is definitely not Red but thanks for keeping your eyes peeled.X
Is this your dog, I know it states female but could be wrong. http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog-blog.php?dogId=81430#.VLq_iICzXIU
Maybe worth getting in touch with k9 tracker Jenny and Tiga are fantastic at tracking his movements upto two weeks since you last saw him, worth an email at least and she will tell you if she can help.
Definitely search anywhere with brambles, fencing etc... a relative's springer went missing and was found a week later,
with her leg stuck in barbed wire... she was eventually ok, but thank god she was found..Lots of good wishes in your search for Red
Sorry no where near to help with search. Try to get some media coverage if you haven't done so. Local papers ,radio etc.

Walk the the bank and tracks end of Dib lane, Hesketh Bank, most days, been keeping a look out for Red after seeing your many posters. Hope he's back home soon.

Shared Red on social media - also e-mailed advise and info to Red's owner Kay.

Hope to see this lovely boy back home very soon x
DogLostClaire Gresty - North West & Police Liaison Coordinator
I have been in contact with owner Kay, and also Taffi :)

They are all doing a fantastic job in the search for Red.

I will start circulating details tonight once home from work x
Extensive searches of the neighbouring fields and ditches are ongoing but we need to share his poster far and wide as he may have been stolen :(
I'm Red's owner, we (hubby, my sister and her partner) and a group of brilliant volunteers have been searching for Red since he went missing and have delivered around 800 leaflets to homes so far. There are laminated posters now spread across Banks, Hesketh Bank and Tarleton. The businesses and shops in these areas have also put posters up of him and they are spreading the word too. We are offering a SUBSTANTIAL REWARD for the safe return. As a rescue dog he has only recently had major upheaval in his life and was loving his new life. It's so cruel he is going through more trauma now.
The search goes on and orders for leaflets and cards made to continue spreading the word.
More people are taking their dogs out specifically to look for him too and there's a 100 strong dog group spreading the word and looking out for him.
He has been registered as missing with the just about every appropriate organisation and the Police.
If you're reading this and have Red please be aware we were advised by the Rescue Center that Red is wary of children so is not a family dog. We however love him and have shed many tears since he went missing.
Please Please let us know if you see our boy.
As for the wonderful people who have and are helping us YOU ARE AMAZING SELFLESS PEOPLE. Words cannot express our appreciation for your assistance and support.
