At least she is safe for now. Are the previous owners trying to keep her? Have you spoken to them, or are you unable to contact them? Perhaps they are not aware of the situation and just keeping her safe? Good luck xxx

Sadly the police have not been very helpful at all & the owner has suffered a great deal of stress over the whole situation. I think now she is just going to wait to see if Max ever gets scanned & returned.

I had spoken to owner a while back now. The police were not very helpful & owner was struggling to get anywhere. I did speak to a supervisory officer who assured me that the officer in case would look into it, however we were no further forward. I did advise owner to take it further & make an official complaint & also see if she could get a solicitors advice to recover her dog. Have sent a text asking for update.

Is there any news?

I am still trying to resolve this matter with owner. I have sent a message to the officer in the case asking for an update.

Sadly there is no update as yet. Have asked for officers details so I may assist by speaking to them, but not got reply yet.
Vets will not get involved either, I asked if they could contact the person who they gave dog to & their reply was 'contact the police, they are dealing with it'
Max, I know all that, my point was that is taking a rather a long time for something that is basically is not a big job!! Police get details, old owner gets rung, gives details of who he gave dog to. Even better, vets have a record of person they gave dog to and ring them up themselves.....

Skywalker99, the owner does not have the details of the person still registered on the chip. he is abroad. The info is subject to data protection, so only the police will be able to get access. So far we have had no update as to how far they are in their actions.
I have spoken to vets & they will not give me any info, nor are prepared to discuss it, as it is in the hands of the police.Last edited: 2017-01-27 15:30:05 by Max - Area Coordinator, Cornwall
If the chip still has details of previous owner on it it should be simple to contact them? 2 weeks in and not reunited?
DogLostCJ - Police Liaison Co-ordinator
Agree would have been better if chip updated however those that collected knew they had not had possession of Max for past 5 years. In law microchip helps reunite but does not prove ownership.

Please check out this link .Found in Welland Peterborough taken to Belhan Kennels Glinton Peterborough still looking for owner. .
Surely police have the power to request details of the chip, from the chip company or from the vets as to who they handed the dog over to? I'm not quite understanding where the problem is here?
If the new owner had updated the chip details,this poor dog wouldnt be missing. The police shot an Akita in Barnsley ( hope not this one). and this beauty is soon home where belongs xx

We now have a crime reference number. The police are now taking it more seriously, thankfully. Have now asked admin to update status to stolen.Last edited: 2017-01-16 21:22:34 by Max - Area Coordinator, Cornwall
Thanks Max. Very worrying for the owner who has had Max 5 years.

Mary, I can only assume they rang the number on the chip & he said he would send someone to collect on his behalf.I understand they use different vets.

How do the vets know he was a representative of the previous keeper. Did he produce documents etc?
Does the owner and the previous keeper both use the same vet?Last edited: 2017-01-13 19:32:30 by Mary
Thanks Max....he could still be in Spain and rang someone and asked them to get the dog....I hope the vet has details...I would have been camped out at the vets surgery until they rang the 'owner'!

I have been informed that the dog was handed over by the vets to a representative of the keeper shown on microchip! Police are making enquiries in an effort to trace that person.

Skywalker99. I have already checked with the name I have been given, not listed/not on fb etc. He was believed to be in Spain, but not known if he came back or not (must have for dog to be handed over) vets now shut. Am waiting to re-contact owner who is currently talking to police.
Surely the vet can bloody well phone up the person they gave the dog to and explain the situation...and give the person they gave it to the owners contact details if owner agrees. That would not break data protection rules. Owner could also try looking on to see if the person with the dog is on the electoral roll (assuminmg they know their name).

I am waiting for details of the microchip number.
It seems somehow, despite owner informing local vets of her lost dog, they gave it back to previous registered keeper ( who owner thought was living in Spain!) She has no contact details for him.
