Benedict has been missing for a year now x
Hello everyone. Thank you for this lead, I have had a look and it is sadly not him. We still hold out hope that one day we will find him. If you try to contact us on the number on the poster and there is no answer, please leave a message, we will always call back. Thank you as always for all your support.

Thank you, have all of the information from Debbie123, the dog was stolen from Worcestershire Animal Rescue Shelter so they are likely busy tending to the dogs, I will check if there is an additional number that can be used, information can always be emailed to quoting Benedicts page ID or in an emergency called in to our helpline too x

I work at the shelter where Benedict was stolen from. i have seen images of the Tibshelf stray and the Medway stray. Sadly neither are Benedict. Thank you to all who keep looking, we do check every post in the hope that one day we find him.

Bumped due to possible sighting.
I saw a dog like this running loose with a leash today very skinny and timid at Tibshelf services on the m1 south bound in the woods. I tried for two hours to catch it but no luck. Rspca informed but not interested. I have emailed Bolsover dog warden and put on FB. I left it a bowl of water and some food. My dog seemed to scare it so that didn't work. It needs help it's very scared. Fawn lurched type but looks more greyhound. About the size in height of my standard poodle at 25" high. Could be whoever stole it abandoned it.

Is this Benedict ?
Please check this
Male dog with Mutts in Distress /
There is a dog that looks very similar to dear Benedict called Harold who is with the RSPCA Essex South, Southend & District Branch that is for rehoming.
I know Benedict is chipped but these can move or be removed.
Please can someone check that it is not him.
Always thinking of Benedict & hoping that he is found safe & sound x
I think this is the same dog as commented below -
Sharing in hope...
Could this be Benedict found in Docaster. Sorry for images
Georgy Porgy
Wondered if found (not caught) cream lurcher 123023 might be a candidate? As night time colour may not have been that clear. Coventry not that far from Worcester.
i have RT's Lisa x
Someone DOES know Where gorgeous distinctive Benedict is don't they ?
