Cannot believe it is 3 years since BROOK went missing.

He has touched a lot of hearts and it would make everyone's day if he was back home where he belongs.

Sending him a big hug wherever he is, hugs also to his mum and dad. :)

I've not forgotten about Brook. Used to breed choc labs years ago and have a huge love for them. Would love to see him home with his family and I'm always on alert when I see a lookalike. Fingers still crossed for you.

we are all still on the look out for Brook and still praying that missing piece of information will come to light that will bring him home to his family. xx

Great to see another one reunited while searching for Brook. Thanks for bumping up Jumanji. Brook's owners and everyone helping in the search have been amazing, would make a lot of people very happy to see gorgeous Brook back home where he belongs. Big hugs to Brook wherever you are. xxx

lovely to see Brook at the top of the page :) we will continue to look and one day it will be his turn xxx

Oh thats great news that another dog was helped home....I never tire of seeing Brook bumped as owners have done so much...
DogLostJumanji - Regional Co-ordinator
I am BUMPING Brooks page because one of the friends of his owners has been instrumental in reuniting a north east dog today !!! She matched POPPY TS6 ( ID 57642 ) who was missing in an area away from her home from her doglost link to a post for a found dog whilst she was scanning pages for Brook. So I feel Brook deserves to be bumped as in a way he has helped another dog to be reunited. Now let's hope it's Brooks turn to be found !! Xx

Mackwok
How awful, I do hope you find him. Strangely he looks very similar to that picture of a dog on FB who recently took I'll, after being fed too many grapes! I felt compelled to mention this, just in case he has been stolen and turned up at the vets. It's probably not him, but may be best to have a look at the post to rule it out. xxx

agree Belle.Some people are just sad losers who need to get a life.If this person is a foreign student I don't think the university will look too kindly on it.

As Caroline says the search goes on xxx
Caroline Hoyles
Thanks to everyone for all your help and comments. To be totally honest I thought something wasn't right from day one, hence why this 'Vincent' bloke hasn't build our hopes up about 'Brian' being our Brook. The search goes on........xx
Belle
Like every sane person here, I would love this to be Brook. But if this is a hoax then the hoaxer is probably getting as much pleasure out of all our worried posts as he did at the thought of upsetting (or conning) the poor owner. All we're doing is giving him attention. If he has the dog he knows how to make contact. Nuff said.
Bonnies' mum
Would it be possible for an 'official' from Doglost to contact Lancaster University or University of Cumbria(which is also based in Lancaster) and see if they have a student by this name?
angi
lots also in the Philippines where the name is common.x
ravenette
Lot's of Vincent Deleons/De-Leons on FB mainly in the US or with blank profiles. I must admit when I first read this I thought it odd that the dog was found sitting outside a bank in the dark and now with the contact details being suss.....I just wonder why someone would single out Brook and then go to the trouble of creating a found listing though xxx
DogLostJayne - Head Office
AAH I stand corrected...saw the initial found dog report but have only been monitoring Brooks page since....As you can all understand how busy it is at HQ....Okay track him on facebook crew...his name is Vincent Deleon...though his email address ...which I am not allowed to put on a public forum does have an Hyphen between the de and the leon....
angi
I just don't understand why he posted he thought the dog was like Brook and he would be happy to give him back then doesn't get in touch at all. It doesn't add up :/ x
reggiemollieros
Jayne, he does know Brook is missing as he posted on this page - see down below. I am not saying this means a hoax just letting you know in case you had not seen his post on this page. QUOTE: 2013-02-28 21:45 Vincent2303D
I found dog that looks just like him :0 and in the lancaster town center too! i have posted hi on the found dog's part of the web site. let me know if it sounds like him and send me a e-mail or somthing, i'd happly give him back to you :) UNQUOTE
DogLostClaireBearG - Area Co-ordinator Bolton/North West Areas
I hope you're right Jayne, lets keep everything crossed for Brook's safe return :-) x
DogLostJayne - Head Office
I dont think its a hoax...hoaxers do usually approach owner directly...he has simple registered a found dog and as he is new to site probably is unaware of Brook being missing....Ange has his email and full name and as it looks as only 1 digit is incorrect maybe he made a mistake...as only 5 minutes away from owner it may be a good idea to go to the pub and ask if they know him....
DogLostClaireBearG - Area Co-ordinator Bolton/North West Areas
I was thinking the same last night, if it is a hoax, some people need to GET A LIFE! I really hope something comes of this and it is Brook x
bazil
I am praying this is not a hoax....If it is a hoax then the police need to be informed...I am seething, do these idiots not realise the pain and heartache a dogs owner suffers when their dog is lost/stolen/missing. Not sure if the address will be correct but if it is, I would get the police to that pub to sort the irresponsible students out x Last edited: 2013-03-02 18:47:30 by bazil
angi
Sadly it looks like that to me too :( and yes I hope it's wrong x
HelperSpringerMad
So 'vincent' has given the wrong number, not replied to emails, had the dog for god knows how many days, not uploaded a photo?

I am sorry, but it all sounds a little odd. Hence my hint earlier about checking the cctv outside the bank. I would be most surprised if the bank does not have cameras outside.

Hoping I am wrong about the above, and woiuld love to stand corrected.

I think it said somewhere LA1 so I assume it must be this one? 35 Market St Town Centre LA1 1JQ x
DogLostScoobster, Area Co-ordinator Salford and Manchester
Anybody know where the HSBC bank would be (No street name goven on found page) Might be worth asking bank if they have any CCTV
angi
we have the pub post code, a telephone number almost identical and a bunch of students. Don't think it takes Sherlock Holmes to deduce a solution from that! x
angi
ha ha Lissy we came to the same conclusion at the same time!x
Lissy
OK, after a bit more sleuthing everything in that postcode that I can find (farm, british waterways, the pub) has a 751 or 752 start to the number. As 4 is directly below 1 on a numeric keypad I wonder if it might ne worth trying 751 for the firt three digits, not 754, if that makes any sense. Will copy this to found post,might make more sense there (or might not)
angi
funny the telephone number given is almost identical to the pubs which is full of students.x
Lissy
well a pub's got to be a good starting point, they might know of a choc lab that's appeared very locally... the number is very similar to the one given on the found page 01524 752357 is the pub's number. And they have a FB page. http://www.facebook.com/GreenDragonGalgate?fref=ts
DogLostJayne - Head Office
The full postcode he registered is showing up on google maps as either the green Dragon hotel or Lodge Hill Cottage both on Lancaster road, Galgate.
angi
unfortunately the number Vincent gave does not exist and he has not replied to Caroline or got in touch with her or doglost :( x
bazil
I am waiting too re the Vincent2303D dog that he has, fingers crossed x

To be perfectly honest I'm in a permanently confused state with all these lost, found and reunited dogs it beggars belief. Nevertheless, that aside would love it to he Brook x

2 separate chocolate labs found yesterday - Northampton dog has now been reunited with family
DogLostScoobster, Area Co-ordinator Salford and Manchester
Your both right to be confused, There is 2 found chocolate labs, The Lancaster one (No pic) and the one in Northamptonshire (Pic)
I was unaware of there being 2 when the link was posted.
I believe the found in Northamptonshires owner has been located.
ravenette
I am confused too....are there two choc labs been found or has the one found in lancaster been taken to nannas? either way so hoping Brook has been found xxx

hi Caroline,
It is Sam, Teddy's mum here. Missing GSD bitch from Christmas Common on the 13/12/2011, who was thought to be running with Percy, chocolate Lab at on stage. ID No: 35377
I have been reading about your post office campaign, which is a great idea. The proof that it is working as Ellie spotted Brooks poster in the post office in Woodstock.
I just wondered if you would let me know how set about it, as I would like to do the same for Teddy.

sam.stapleford@btinternet.com

I am so very sorry that gorgeous Brook is still missing. I know that your heart must be breaking as mine is over the loss of my little girl.
Please let me know if there is anything that I do to help from down here. Any post offices in Oxfordshire/Bucks that you would like me to target. Or anything else?
Thinking of You. Sam and Teddy xx

Hi all, this is a long shot suggestion and I am sorry if it has already been suggested , have you asked people who have "chocolate" labradoodles. If he was stolen for this purpose the first lot of pups would be approx 1 yr old. Some of the litter would be chocolate . Also if you think this is a good idea then I am sure you would be able to check old copies of ad- mag,local papers who advertise pups.Hope this helps. I live in northumberland and am helpig search for KIP, who is a blind SPRINGER. Good Luck. Jackie xxx

Re: Post Offices. Could I suggest that any helpers going into Post Offices with Brook's poster tries to get an email address (or fax). If that information is then inputted on the spread sheet, then this can benefit other dogs as well.
Caroline Hoyles
Thanks for posting Claire - I have checked the dog and I'm afraid it isn't our Brook x
Thanks for the bump :) The post office campaign we are currently running is a huge task - everyone uses a PO at some point whether it be for paying bills, collecting pension or sending mail. Our aim is for every PO in the country to have a poster on display, in hope that the 'right' person sees it and gets in touch with us. He could be anywhere in the country by now and we feel this is a good way of spreading his name everywhere.
There are many kind people helping us out with this mission, and should anyone wish to help too, please get in touch.
We are accompanying the poster with a well worded letter, which should persuade all postmasters to help us. Both the letter and poster can be emailed to helpers or I can send some out to you. Quite a few areas have already been covered but there are plenty more to go at - in total there are 12,000 Post offices!!!!!

Thanks again to everyone who is looking out for our Brook, all the help and support we are receiving is greatly appreciated.

Hi, this time I was looking for a Springer Spaniel online (can't imagine who?!) when I came across this chocolate labrador in an interesting photo pose. I know it's miles away, this dog's fatter and it says he's older but if Brook was sold on, they may not know how old he is (differs between title and advert contents BTW). If he's not ruled out by Caroline, he's in my area so I could go 'white fleck hunting' if required! x

This morning tv programme have posted this on their website....

This Friday we’re intending to feature an item on missing pets. So if you’ve lost a pet, or think you’ve had one stolen, let us know and we might be able to feature them in our missing pets gallery. Email thismorning@itv.com with some good shots of your missing pet and a few details that might help: when you last saw your pet, any distinguishing marks, habits or characteristics. Maybe it was wearing a particular collar. We need your emails by 5.00pm Thursday the 10th May. http://www.itv.com/thismorning/life/reuniting-lost-pets-with-owners/

Thanks for posting Claire and Jasper, I have checked the dog and can confirm he isn't our Brook. Thanks very much for keeping an eye out for him x

Thanks Angi - I know the one for adoption isn't as glossy and dark as Brook's pictures but a year's a long time for a dog. Anyway, I'll leave you to it x

Dear Caroline

I often check Brook's page when I come on here.

I've been looking through the dog adoption ads to see if Ben the elderly lost collie is on there and I spotted this six-year old chocolate labrador. You can't see his tail properly and I can't tell whether there's a white flash on his chest, but I thought I'd let you know as the age could be wrong. I did a Google map search and whilst it's clearly miles from you, Cannock is pretty much straight down the M6. I've tried to compare their pictures as I don't want to get your hopes up or waste your time, but I just find myself staring at them both...wondering! Hence why I've posted it.

There is a dog called Tyler on ebay classifieds for sale, it looks to have a white mark on it's chest in the second photo. Maybe worth a look. I will keep searching!

Extended thanks from Aubrey and I for everyone's continued help and support over the past 12 months.
It's been a heart wrenching year and we miss Brook as much today as that terrible day he was taken.
I know he is waiting for us to find him, and the search will continue until that day.
DogLost is an amazing organisation, and many dogs would not be reunited if it wasn't for you x
My thoughts go out to all the owners of dogs that are currently missing.

Hi Jan, have you got some A5 poster? I've postered in the BD10 and BD18 area, but some smaller ones would be useful for shops with limited board space such as post offices. Thanks

By the way Brookies, I think you're doing a fantastic job, keep it up and keep positive. NEVER GIVE UP on Brook, many dogs have been re-united after a long period of time, he's out there somewhere.

Why oh why won't someone in the media help with this appeal? all it will take is for someone like BBC Breakfast to run a general feature in stolen dogs with a special mention of Brook, and someone somewhere will see it and realise that the dog living next door or across the road is him!

We are missing a huge part of our family, and we are desperate to know what has happened to him.
There really is a £5000 reward...no questions asked, for his safe return, and we would really appreciate any information that could lead to him being found.

The help and support we have received since Brook disappeared has been overwhelming and we would like to thank each and every one of you xx

Published on Thursday 27 October 2011 09:13

Caroline Hoyles has tried everything to find her beloved pet dog Brook.

The four-year-old chocolate labrador was stolen from their home six months ago, leaving Caroline and her family frantic and desperate for any glint of information.

Caroline, 37, and husband Aubrey, 42, put up a £5,000 reward for his safe return, created a ‘Find Brook’ page on Facebook, registered him on lost pet websites and used the services of pet detectives.

But their efforts were to no avail.

But now they have given hope – after an animal psychic claimed Brook is living in Preston.

The psychic spotted one of their lost dog posters and got a sense he is living in the city.

Caroline, of Bay Horse, Forton, near Lancaster, said: “I know a lot of people sit on the fence when it comes to animal communicators, but I must admit, after hearing some things she said to me, I have no choice but to believe her.

“This lady first saw a Brook poster six weeks ago in Blackpool and immediately she saw ‘Preston’.

“Two weeks ago, she was driving near where we live and saw the huge sign on the Galgate roundabout, and again Preston came into her head.

“This urged the lady to ring me, although she doesn’t normally offer help.

“The lady is certain he is in Preston, and has given us a lot of information and links to follow up.

“On Sunday, a few of us went to Preston to talk to dog walkers on parks, to see if there were any new chocolate labradors in the area, and to post and hand out leaflets, as well as putting a few posters up to make the public aware of Brook.

“Brook has lived with us from being just a few weeks old, he will be so unhappy without his family, and will be missing his lifestyle.

“We cannot tell you just how much we miss him, and want to find him, although the reward does reflect just how much we want him back home with us. He is a huge part of our family.”

Anyone who has any information is asked to call doglost.co.uk on 0844 800 3220.

It's over six months since he was taken, and we are still awaiting that one important phone call! We can only hope and pray for some good news soon.
'Lover from Pembrokshire' we checked Chan out before he was re-homed, but funnily enough I got a phone call about him a couple of weeks ago. Chan has been re-homed for three months now, and his new owners saw a Brook poster, and rang me to make sure their new dog wasn't Brook!!
The posters are doing their job! x

Not sure if I am going over something that's already been posted, and not wishing to raise false hope, but I just wanted you to know that I have seen a Choc male Lab on the Aspen Valley Kennels, Oswaldtwistle website http://rescuecentral.webs.com. He is under the heading "April 2011 onwards" and his "name" is Chan and they say he is 3. Unfortunately he is sitting down so impossible to see tail or white fleck on chest, but I think he is entire. I obviously don't want to raise your hopes, but felt I had to run this dog by you, just in case it is Brook.

Hi Please check with the Calderdale Dog Wardens, there was a chocolate lab waiting to be collected by them in Luddenden Foot, Halifax this morning. I know its a way from Lancaster but still worth a look I think. Sorry I can't be more helpful but I just remembered seeing something about a lost choc lab on the RSPCA halifax animal centre website. Hope you find him soon. They take the found dogs to Fleet Kennels at Queensbury, Nr. Bradford.

Great stuff AJD, the more people that are aware of Brook, the bigger our chance of finding him! xx

Just to say have e-mailed all my contacts with a link to facebook, and asked each and everyone to do the same. Lets "pyramid sell" until everyone in this country who has a dog knows about Brook. Someone, somewhere knows where this dog is, someone sees him out walking, or at a Vet. I will poster ALL my local Vets, and ask everyone else to do the same.
Maybe that kink in the tail will prove to be the key. Lets hope so!
Caroline Hoyles
Thanks to everyone for helping with the search for our Brook.
PA, Angi and Gilly, I have checked the labs and I'm afraid they aren't Brook.
We're hoping and praying that the reward will bring him home...It's been the worse four months of our lives, and it's time Brook was back with his family x

Recently neutered. maybe just the way the dog is sat in the pic but the tail looks a bit kinked. its in Coalville, Leicestershire. Good Luck. PA.

Caroline I am really impressed with all you are doing and you truly deserve to get your gorgeous Brook HOME. The support you have is amazing and we cannot thank everyone enough, WELL DONE to all the Brook Team. Various size posters have now been updated with the new reward. Come on Brook we want to see you in the BLUE. Jan x
DogLostMajorjet (Jan) Area Co-ordinator Liverpool/Merseyside/North West Areas
Caroline's update from Brook's Facebook group:

WE HAVE DECIDED TO UP THE REWARD TO £5000 FOR BROOK'S SAFE RETURN.
Hopefully this will bring him back home!

Emma is going to alter the video for us, which will need re-circulating.
The posters that are already up are fine, as they are doing their job, and making the public aware of Brook. The next one's will be printed with the new reward.

Thanks everyone for all your continued help and support xx

Keep thining about a lab i saw weeks ago. Was on canal at woodhouse lane, wigan. I got on at martland mill lane crossed the little bridge then left past the gypsie farm heading toward crook village along the canal. Across the canal theres some waterside appartments (Mews)theres a security gaurd there for some reason and i saw a chocolate labrador in the box with security guard. its been on my mind ever since. However i watched brooks video now and know i would recognise him by his tail. Im away till Monday but i will check the dog out asap. I just wanted to put it on here. Chances its Broook are slim but i need peace of mind. Wishing a speedy return for Brook. Bless him. Love Gail xx

Just rang the ad from the Preloved site and it sounded suspiciously like brook but the man said he was only four. Might be worth chancing up!!!
Caroline Hoyles
Thanks everyone for your help and comments.
The posters are being displayed all over the place, and we're hoping that it's only a matter of time before someone recognises Brook, and he is moved into the blue.
The Lab advertised in Yorkshire has been checked.
We are remaining hopeful, that with everyone's help we will find Brook eventually x

Hi just seen on preloved on page 4 a tiny add (half way down page 4 atm) selling a male choc lab, £150. Posted by Cavanagh & in East Riding of Yorkshire. Bit sus maybe? Have sent you a text also.PA.

I hope it brings some news of Brook. Fingers crossed for you Caroline that you get him home soon.

Keeping everything crossed for Brooks safe return. Noticed his poster at Stanah Nature reserve over the weekend. I'm sure someone's keeping an eye on preloved but I have noticed a peculiar advert for a male choc lab for sale from East Ridings area and a stud advert with no piccie which I thought was odd.

I was at the Gastang show yesterday and noticed lots of people were stopping to read the posters that someone had put up and they were talking about Brook.

Caroline Hoyles
We are getting phone calls every day and have a huge following on his fb group 'FIND BROOK' but still no news.
The Lancashire Magazine, have very kindly put an appeal in August's edition, so we're hoping that may bring some leads.

Really hope there's some good news for Brook & his family soon; spent three years living close by to where he was taken from so have a soft spot for the area. Come on boy, hurry home!

Thanks JeffandAlfsmummy, this has already been followed up, sadly Brook was not one of them. The search goes on for him. Jan x

The lancaster guardian is carrying a story about a raid on a barn in lancaster containing pedigree dogs. It might be worth getting in touch to see if Brook was one of the dogs they seized.

Thanks for posting Bonnies' mum, we have made a phone call.
The search is getting bigger and harder, with now having to check out pups for sale, but we will never give up looking for our Brook.
The DL posters are fantastic, I have now posted out well over 1000 plus many leaflets, not to mention the ones that other people have printed out....the word is spreading further about Brook.
A very special thank you to Jan, who is always there when I need her xx

Funnily enough I spoke to 'Many Tears' yesterday, and she will hopefully be putting an appeal on their website for him. Lots of DL posters are also making their way out to Wales as we speak, as the puppy farms have been mentioned on Brook's fb.

Long shot I know but just seen that someone has listed on Gumtree that they have found a labrador in Chorlton cum Hardy area a couple of days ago. They don't give any other details as to colour or gender and don't give their number, just contact through Gumtree. Know it is a distance but if he has been stolen he may have been taken out of the area.

Sorry I have been out and only just got back. Hope you hear good news soon Caroline. Liz xx
angi
thankyou I have passed on to caroline. you never know it's only 50 miles according to google so very possible if he's been dumped. Whether Brook or not I hope this poor dog stays safe x

Contact no for animalsearch is 01432 761 406. If you phone them they will get in touch with finder of this dog to get more details

Lizzy do you know any more details you could text caroline as she hasn't been able to get on line today . She says Brook has no road sense as they have so few where they live :-( x

There is a chocolate lab in Chorlton-cum-Hardy (Manchester) running around in the road, no collar and people couldn't get close enough to see what sex it was. This is quite a distance from you but it is on 'Animal Search' website.
angi
oops! will check my posting on lab forum.
I expect you are already doing this but please ring,send/take posters to every vet you can find in the book. Someone here had their German shepherd pup stolen recently when it escaped for 5 minutes while visiting. It must have been sold on that day as a few days later the 'new' owners took her to a vet to be checked over and it was picked up. x

Thanks angi and everyone for looking out for Brook. angi, I've just tried the link you have put and it takes me to the News Feed page on Facebook, the link I posted for Brook's page took me straight to his page on Facebook.

Caroline you are doing all the right things, we know the hardest thing for you is the not knowing where he is and if he is o.k. Great you have now started a FB page up for him this will also help spread the word. The photo/s of him are lovely. Jan x
angi
can't get the facebook link to work :-( had to do a search with find brook. That worked ok.http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/home.php?sk=group_104217123000692&ap=1 this is the link. A bit was missing off the end! :-)
I have posted the link on lab forum and bumped the link to this page.
Don't lose heart Caroline we will keep looking xx
angi
just text you an advert link and have just seen this on Alfies lost dogs.
http://www.alfieslostdogs.com/bb/index.php/topic,30507.0.html
an entire lab and a patterdale stolen in Feb ( there was also a Patterdale stolen same day as Brook in Lancaster) coincidence maybe but who knows? may be worth speaking to the people involved. May be a link.If he was stolen because he was still entire suggests someone who has had access to your house or garden ( through a workman perhaps)and met Brook or has met you on a walk. How else would they know. It can't be random.

Well done Carolne setting it up.

Hi, I've followed up the ads, no luck but thanks for looking. I've also got the contact details of local breeders to chase up tomorrow x

I have been on preloved and there is a dog for stud in Doncaster - only shows pic of his face but no papers - due to house fire - heard that used before on other breeds on there - wearing red leather collar with brass bones on.
DogLostLizzy - Co-ordinator Central
I know you have said he is entire - have you tried contacting breeders in your area. I know there is one in Lancaster and also one who breeds chocolates in Morecambe.
Caroline Hoyles
Has anyone got any more ideas in getting Brook back home. It's been 10 days since he was taken and we are terribly worried for him.The house isn't a home without Brook......who ever has got him, please, please bring him back, no questions asked! With some of the reward you can go and BUY your own dog!

Caroline, Mel has said she will poster for Brook while putting posters up for Digby which is great. Jan x
DogLostMajorjet (Jan) Area Co-ordinator Liverpool/Merseyside/North West Areas
Caroline, I've swopped the photo/s over and updated the various size posters. Depending how the details have been put on Facebook they can be edited and the right link put on. You did register him twice (see comments further down the page). Jan x
Caroline Hoyles
Hi Jan, would it be possible to swap the image on the posters, as the extra image is the better one of Brook. Also there is a problem with the facebook link as Brook's details aren't coming up? It's my fault as I think I have registered twice! Sorry and thankyou x
DogLostMajorjet (Jan) Area Co-ordinator Liverpool/Merseyside/North West Areas
Caroline and Mel, if you could team up with each other and look out for Brook and Digby that would help. I will email the various size posters to each of you just in case you can. Jan x
Epona
Hi. Thank you for you comment about Digby. I hope you find brook soon. Have you tried putting a poster up at Langley lakes down langley lane just of whittingham lane? They have alot of fishermen comming there and they are the sort that might hear about gun dogs etc being stolen. Also the vets down there wil let you put a poster up as well. I hope you find him soon. Kind Regards. Mel.
Caroline Hoyles
Thanks for the posts.
We are following up the lab found in Manchester but they can't give us any information until tuesday. We will let you know if we have any good news.

I originally posted this comment the other day but for some reason its not appeared on here.
On Saturday 16th April I saw a dog matching this description trying to board the tram at weaste tram stop in salford, apparently it had been following people about all day.
He looked as though he had been shaved and was quite wide. I would have took him home but I had a trolley full of shopping and a toddler with me. I know there is cctv on the tram stop if that helps. x
Good luck hope this helps x

Thanks everyone who has posted on his page, greatly appreciated. :) Jan x
