Had a big push on social media (now have a twitter page open for Luna) but sadly no leads despite lots of sharing.
jennyb
Very much back to the drawing board with Luna. There have been no possible sightings since 1 June and the handful before have been hard to confirm. Taking a step backwards the areas which would be good to focus on are Fairwood Road area of Dilton Marsh and the area around Wiltshire Way and the Mead Lakes, Westbury.
jennyb
Hoping to meet and flyer the area around Centre Parks this week, no more possible sightings x
The dog like Luna sighted on 1 June was also seen by another member of public half an hour earlier, there is some confusion about the colour of the collar but the description sounds very like Luna, but again can't be 100%.Last edited: 2017-06-12 09:27:12 by jennyb

Another possible sighting of a dog like Luna in the entrance of Centre Parks Longleat at 6pm last night. The dog was mostly black with tan legs and came from the Crockerton woods, another car stopped but they were unable to catch the dog and it trotted off into the woods. It had a bright coloured collar on, possible red and the lady thought she saw a tag. At the moment we are following it up as a possible sighting until we can rule it out x
jennyb
Spent this morning in Brokerwood and have flyered the farms, gave some leaflets to some tour guides at The Country Park, left flyers at the church, pub, garden nursery and as many houses as possible in two hours - we spoke to quite a few people - no one has seen Luna or a dog like her and no one was aware of her. But they are very aware of her now x
jennyb
Currently following up a dog matching Luna's description who has visited a farm in the Brokerswood area (BA11) on three occasions and has also been seen wandering around Rudge in Somerset. Maybe a local dog but it's skinny and without a collar. Reported to have been 'hanging around' for a while. Going to flyer the area tomorrow.
jennyb
Thank you Jools32 - will make sure we get some posters down there. I have emailed bothe longleat and centre parks the Luna poster as well as the local parish to see if they will put the poster up in their area x
jools32
There's a new Bike Park opened recently at Longleat. Might be worth postering their car park between Longleat entrance and Heavens Gate because the place was teeming with cyclists at the weekend! They might have a good chance of spotting Luna if she is in the woods around there.
janiejewel1649
Hope Luna is home soon. Pawsxd
jennyb
Really need helpers in the area to poster, Tash is heading out there later and I have emailed posters to two local people who have offered to help. I have also re-emailed Longleat and Centre Parks x
jennyb
Another possible sighting two weeks ago on the A362 near Corsley Heath/Cley Hill area. She has been sighted here before around New Year. Very close to the Heaven Gate sighting on Sunday. Last edited: 2017-04-18 11:06:55 by jennyb

Great that these sightings are coming in, Luna will be living completely on her wits by now so will run as soon as she sees people. I hope she will settle in an area that is comfortable for her so that feed station etc can be set up.
jennyb
Another sighting of a dog matching Luna's description in the wooded area by Heavens Gate between Longleat and Centre Parcs. Maybe a dog being walked but sighter said the dog appeared frightened and ran away from her dog - she couldn't see anyone else around and didn't hear anyone calling. This was just before 9am this morning.
jennyb
There has been a sighting of a skinny black dog wandering along the pavements in Chapmansland at 9am this morning - trying to find out more info.

All gone quiet about this dog ?

Dog seen at Southwick country Park at 5.45pm. Large red collar easily seen. Was heading towards car park but turned off along the animal park fencing towards allotments. Moving at speed but at closest was about 10 m away.
jennyb
Another possible sighting of Luna in the Steeple Ashton/Great Hinton area - a dog like Luna was seen running across a field on its own at around 5:30pm today. Last edited: 2017-02-19 19:08:59 by jennyb

We have had another possible sighting at the beginning of the week in the Penleigh, Dillon Marsh area around Westbury - sighter didn't know Luna was missing. It's been followed up but we still really need more sightings to come in. We haven't been able to confirm this sighting as of yet.
jennyb
Luna is a Jura Hound, but could be mistaken for a lurcher, 2yrs old and micro-chipped. She bolted from an address she was staying at in the centre of Westbury on 10 Dec whilst her owner was away, and sighted many times in and around Westbury that evening and the next day Sunday 11 Dec she was seen heading towards Bratton across the fields above the Lower Westbury Road around 11am.

She was then sighted 17 Dec in Clanger Wood and then the next day (18 Dec) in a field close to the road which leads up to the White Horse Carpark from the Upton Scudamore side. (Photo of location below)

Since then we have had a run of possible sightings all which have been hard to confirm or rule out.

21 Dec Frome Road, Southwick (two sightings)
21 Dec Sherrington, Codford
24 Dec Fairwood Road, Penleigh
31 Dec Westbury Rd near Warminster Golf Course
2 Jan A36 Longleat roundabout and again on the Frome road A362 to Coresly Heath

The above sightings could all be Luna but we can't be 100% sure, so please if you have seen a stray Black and Tan dog in any of these area please contact us and give us details.

On Tuesday 25 Jan I visited the BP garage near Warminster (A36) and a lady told me someone had visited the petrol station on Sun 22 Jan and had said Luna had been seen on Friday 20 Jan but didn't disclose the location of the sighting, we really need to talk to this lady.

The recent sightings in Westbury have now all been ruled out sadly so Luna could be further afield.

Photo of location of last confirmed sighting is available on FB page 'find Luna'
jennyb
Just to update you that the Penleigh Sighting (sat 21 Jan) of Luna has more or less been excluded - managed to track down the other people who saw her and they are certain it wasn't Luna. The man who saw her on Warminster Road didn't notice the colour of her collar so hasn't been able to say, but I think he knows Luna and seemed certain it was her. So back to just one sighting of Luna in Westbury over the last 2 weeks.

Thank you to all in the area who are keeping a look out for Luna and especially to Jennyb who is doing a brilliant job at keeping all informed and updated.

Hi Jools32 - I have texted you Tash number - she is out putting up A3 posters at the moment but if you could call her she can go through which areas are covered and where is best next - thank you very much x
jools32
Am just up the road in Warminster and will print off some posters/flyers. Text me on 07547134326 and let me know where you would like them put.
Juls
Keep watching posts , really hope you find her soon fingers crossed for you best wishes x x
jennyb
No worries ClaireC! Seens she may have returned!
Jools32 are you near Westbury and do you have access to a printer or need to be given posters flyers? I can put together a small area you could help with if you are able to. We do have FB page with updates (try to update both) but if you are in FB the page is 'find luna' x

Thanks Jennyb thought it might be another area not sent alerts, but see the area has already had them.
jools32
Happy to help out this week - just let me know what I can do.
jennyb
That's her description, she's actually a Jura Hound and rescued from Cyprus. That was the closest DL could get to her description.
Hollieberry
I really don't know how she is surviving the winter Dobermann x Whippet are not built to live outdoors .
jennyb
BA13 - very close to where she went missing from.
DogLostClaireC - Area Volunteer, Buckinghamshire
Anybody know postcode for sighted areas and we can let admin know to send out further alerts?
jennyb
If anyone is able to help flyer or poster sighting areas that would be helpful.
jennyb
At the moment she's moving areas still and is very nervous. She been missing for 50 days now.

Most sightings of Luna have been at the weekends which may mean she is being disturbed by more people out and about walking, or just more people around in the areas. Rural locations she has been sighted in are Clangers Wood, near the Church at Bratton, the track leading up to the White Horse car park from the Warminster side, Mead Lakes, and Penleigh. Possible sightings are also Fairwood road close to Brokerswood and the road to Coresly, although some of these sightings aren't confirmed and only possibilities.
DogLostPoochpal - Regional Co-ordinator, South West
Such a shame this sighting has only just been reported but at least we know she is still safe and staying close.
Thank you for keeping us updated Jennyb.
jennyb
Luna has been sighted on Mane Way running off towards Fell Riad on Saturday 21 January at 2pm ish
jennyb
More flyers handed out today - the garage on the A350 roundabout said a lady came in on Sunday saying she'd seen Luna 2 days earlier (Friday) - desperately trying to find out where she saw her.

So much going on in the search for Luna, she has to be spotted again soon and then all plans can be set in motion again. Her owner and local volunteer worked so hard with feed station, drag scent to safe place etc. but then work started in the area and she decided to move on. At the moment it is not known where Luna may be, hence the renewed appeal for sightings. She is still likely to be fairly local but with so many possible hiding places it is impossible to know where to start so please, if seen please call the poster numbers as soon as possible with time, location and direction she is heading but DO NOT TRY TO CATCH OR CALL HER.

More sightings of Luna are being reported almost daily at the moment and she appears to have settled in one area. Owners are following all advice given by Ray Dedicoat in similar situations, we just need public to resist calling or trying to catch her as this will just cause her to move on. Please just call the poster numbers if seen.

* Sighting * of stray dog Frome Road, Southwick, BA14 today at 1350hrs. Witness was driving on the Frome Road towards Trowbridge when he saw an 'anxious' dog running around looking lost, seen going onto driveways, into gardens, then back onto the main road. Dog described as predominantly black with 'whippet' about it. On seeing a Doglost poster at the Westbury Health Centre witness believes the dog could possibly be Luna. Owner is aware.

I've just made a call to owner to see if any news on Luna, lady is out of County at the moment but has just had a call re a possible sighting. I will follow up with a phone call and update shortly.

Tash was told that someone in a sign written van may have picked Luna up, she has contacted the driver of the van and he was unable to catch her but another Lady present told him I've got this and was trying to catch her, the van driver isn't sure but doesn't think she was successful.
