Any updates? It seems ELSA's FB page has not been manned since Aug2017... No response yet to 31 Oct 2018 pm
The dog on this link has now been shot by the police/RSPCA due to aggression apparently :(

Hi, I highly highly highly doubt that it is the same dog, or even the right breed as you can't see the whole dog, but I was just watching http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p053fdjq/sex-drugs-murder-life-in-the-red-light-zone-9-bad-for-business this on the Iplayer and at 8:52 on the show is a dog that looks like a dirtier version of Elsa? I can't see any grey on the muzzle, but you hear they do all kinds of things like dying the fur. I doubt it is and don't know how long ago it was filmed. But it made me think of her, so I thought on the very off chance it could be a lead, that I better say something. I really hope she gets home soon, I can't imagine what you're going through.

Tilly - Good spot but she was posted 25 days ago the one on gumtree
There is a female leon for sale on Gumtree in Thornton Cleveleys. Has this been ruled out??? Good luck 🐾
I find this strange no sightings such a big dog couldnhave gone to far
Has the fields been searched ?
Keep watching posts , hope you find her soon bless you take care x x
No sightings and she's wearing a tag and microchipped. The assumption is someone has taken her.
