I wonder if you should contact Dog Theft Action Group? You have so much info they might be able to take things further for you. http://dogtheftaction.com/ I am so glad you have offered the little stray dog a home. I will keep an eye out for you. I have posted on Vets Get Scanning page xLast edited: 2012-09-23 19:17:00 by reggiemollieros

Ellie has been missing for over a year now - her owners are still actively looking for her and went to see a possible today which sadly was not Ellie

- owners have now offered this little stray a home - bumping Ellie as a reminder for those checking pounds & rescues etc

Awful. Remember she is chipped, so there is always a chance. We have had dogs come back home after a few years, so you just never know. God bless. x
Becky
Police have closed the case, they didn't really do anything and were very unhelpful. They treated the whole thing as though it was a cat stuck up a tree
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
At least she's chipped, so always a chance. Never give up. Any news out there? x
Scrappy2010
any news on this little one please. ??
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Anyone know what happened with police? Did they do anything after the initial visit? I would hope they would still be pursuing this.

There is also an email address for the rescue info.rats@gmail.com I note they also have a male wesie entered as accepted on same date. Regardless of what background information the rescue has on these dogs it is important to see the dog for yourself. Although Ellie is chipped they can be missed.

Can't the dog warden go to the address and check all the dogs?
TerenceT
Circulating again on Twitter. Shame police didn't check out all the dogs in the house - chances are that a number of them are stolen too.Last edited: 2011-07-28 17:14:08 by TerenceT

I think that this extra information will help you get Ellie back, what Kimmybear says is true......so good you know where these awful people live, it's the breakthro' you needed. Keep positive, poster again and hope that the doglost co-ordinator has more advice to help you.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Becky, Ellie is always in the list - there are just hundreds of dogs on here that the list becomes longer and longer. Right now she has been bumped up the top because of this information, by a Co-Ordinator. x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Becky, you have NOT lost Ellie. This is a fantastic lead - it gives us all something to work on. It is against the law to not call the dog warden and to simply leave a dog tied up somewhere, so if that is what they are saying then that is what you can bargain with. You can maybe threaten to sue them unless they find the dog. It could work, but you need the police to work with you. DogLost and its supporters are a fantastic bunch and will continue to work with you to get Ellie home. I am sure a DogLost Co-Ordinator will call you soon, if they haven't already. Mission for helpers out there, and for you, update the posters and poster everywhere all over again, even more than before - REALLY poster heavily. Get hundreds out there. Can you notify the local papers - it may be a good story for them? Let's make Ellie far too hot to handle! Ellie, your mummy's coming to find you sweetheart. x

please dont give up hope becky,x

Last week I was contacted by the lady who was seen picking Ellie up near the A1. She had seen Ellie running in the road and was worried about her getting run over, so stopped her car to get her. She told me she'd wrapped her in a blanket as she was cold and wet and was about to take her to the vets when a white van pulled up and 2 people got out claiming Eliie was their dog and they'd been looking for her. She handed Ellie over as she believed their story, as soon as she saw the posters and realised she'd been conned she contacted me. This lady is very distraught about what happened, however she remembered where these people lived as she'd driven behind them and seen where they went.

This lady and her husband went to the home of the dog nappers to make sure it was them, they recognised each other straight away, the dog nappers claimed that they'd mistaken Ellie for their own 'identical' dog, when they realised their error they passed her on to someone else. My lady and her husband asked to see the 'identical' dog they wouldn't let show them.

Then very unexpectedly the dog napper phoned me, he said that he'd taken Ellie believing her to be his, but as he was driving home he realised that she wasn't, so he turned his van round and went back to find the lady who'd picked her up in the road. She'd gone and he didn't know what to do so he put the dog on a piece of string and went and stood outside G&M growers with a sign saying 'lost dog' within a couple of minutes an old lady aged between 50 & 70 came past and claimed the dog was hers, so he gave her Ellie. I personally think this is utter bullshit as my lady followed him home that's how she knew where he lived. I have passed all this information onto the police, this morning they went down to the dognappers with a microchip reader, there were lots of dogs, but none matching Ellie's decription, they didn't ask to see the identical dog as they didn't think it was relevant.

It's clear to me that the dog nappers have moved Ellie somewhere else, probably to some other family members. The police won't charge them with anything or investigate any further as they say there is no evidence of theft and there is nothing more they can do.

Sadly it seems we have lost Ellie for good and frustratingly can't do anything about it. It seems that you can commit a crime and make up a lie that a 5 year old wouldn't believe to get away with it!

theres a female westie on the animal wardens website found in st albans may be worth a phone call!!,x
Becky
still no sign, on Tuesday Ellie will have been missing for 1month. No sightings since the day she went missing
Becky
How come Ellie doesn't appear in the dogs lost list? I always have to do a search to find her listing.
Becky
Still looking, still no news. Might replace some posters over the weekend.
Becky
had a piece in the Biggleswade chronicle this week, but heard nothing from it yet. Hopefully will have something in the Comet and on 3 counties radio
hamish&katy
any news?
Lossie
Hi Becky, I often see you in the mornings walking early, Im the lady with the two jack russells(Jack and Dave and the grey car parked next to yours).So sorry to hear about Ellie. Just to let you know, we(dog owners) up at the common, have been passing the word around, great to see loads of leaflets around, but the board on the A1 has gone missing! I assume you know about the dog show this weekend up at old warden, be good to get some posters there.
Becky
thanks guys, hopefully something appearing in Biggleswade chronicle tomorrow, also sent something off to Stevenage comet so hope they put it in
cookie
i will poster around bedford will take one into vets in area aswell,have informed local rescue centres.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Well done to all of you lovely helpers out there! We need loads of posters, not just where Ellie went from but further out too as we don't know the distance she could have travelled, but suspect it may still be local. We need to make Ellie so famous, whoever has her gets scared and let's her go.
Becky
Rang highways agency to see if cameras on the A1 had picked anything up, after a lot of persuading, they finally they agreed to look, but weren't overly helpful. Oh well anythings worth a try
Scrappy2010
Oh well it was worth checking out, just in case. Onwards and upwards, you mustn't give up, Ellie needs you now more than ever. Have shared on Paddys people and Alfies lost dogs. Fingers crossed she will be home soon. x
Becky
It wasn't Ellie dog at the vets it was a Jack Russell, (but at least it was reunited with its owner) False alarm, back to searching
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
All paws crossed here! x ESSJ - thank you. Please keep covering Herts too! I need you!!! :-) Come on Ellie girl, let's get you home! x

article on Biggleswade Today with a picture of kids and Daisy, Ellie's mum. Hopefully will be printed in paper edition on Friday
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Kimmybear- no worries- its fairly close to Baldock and our areas will often overlap(i pick up in Herts too)- we probably both have fairly local knowledge so it all helps xxx
Becky
Posters now in Sainsbury's petrol station and in the co-op one at Sandy, hopefully might jog a passing motorists mind

been over to gnm's carboot,round biggleswade,caldecote,no sign atall,x

more phone calls to rescue centres, still nothing, called Herts police incase someone reported a found dog to them, but nothing.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Sometimes people are unsure what to do, so they look after the dog for a bit till they figure it out. So here's hoping.....
Becky
Posters up around A1 roundabout and in shops through Biggleswade
Becky
Thanks Terence, She's micro-chipped, so I think if she'd been taken to the vet we'd know by now. The day she went missing was very stormy and it was around the time it rained she was seen being put in the car. I'm guessing she was wet and thats why she was being picked up in plastic.
TerenceT
Is it possible the white dog was injured since was using a plastic sheet and it has been taken to a vet / PDSA etc.
Becky
Latest dog news. - A woman was seen by the A1 roundabout putting a white dog in her car at around the time of the storms on Tuesday. We are pretty certain that this was Ellie. She was stopped on the road and other cars were having to drive around her, she was driving a dark blue car possibly an estate. She was slim, aged mid 40's and had her hair tied back. She was picking the dog up in a dark blue plastic sheet. Other people must have seen her. She hasn't yet handed the dog in as the microchip hasn't been reported. It is a crime to pick up a dog and keep it. Please re-post.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Sorry ESSJ, I thought this was Baldock in Herts! I'll butt out now! :-)
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Advice has been given on who to phone etc but most of this has already been done. Owner has my number if she needs any other advice- posters are being put up and the word spread in the area. Have advised contacting vets and kennels/dog wardens further afield in case this woman was passing through. Owner is trying to get more exact info on which direction the lady who picked Ellie up was heading and any other pertinent info.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Oh! Okay Lizzy - no probs! Its not hard to confuse me! x
DogLostLizzy - Co-ordinator Central
Sorry, keep thining todays Saturday for some reason, thought yesterday was Friday.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Lizzy, I don't mean to sound dim, but why Monday? Don't they work Fridays over there? That's a nuisence. Hopefully, she'll be safe. Come on little one. x
DogLostLizzy - Co-ordinator Central
Hopefully she will contact warden on Monday. liz xx
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Sorry only just seen this. Owners, if she was picked up at least she is not in the road and should be safe. Keep postering for more information as others may have seen more or seen something different. Poster. poster. poster! VERY important. Do this where she was lost and outwards for a few miles - the public is your eyes and ears. As ESSJ said, contact as many places as possible - all vets and rescues and dog wardens. If the person is looking after her, you need to make it known who/where you are (via poster) so that they can return her - sometimes people do that (see other pages on reunited). Good luck and let us know how you're getting on. x

DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
She may take her to Margaret at the holding kennels at Baldock on the A1 where they would scan for her microchip. please call 01462 730464 in the morning. If she hasnt been handed in get as many posters up as possible in the area inc at G&M Growers and the Post Office in Upper Caldecote and Elizabeth Smith & Deepdale Vets. Too late to call now but will phone in the morning- sending more advice by email now. Last edited: 2011-06-30 23:54:04 by ESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire

Apparently Ellie was last seen being picked up by a lady in a white car on the A1 roundabout at Biggleswade, we still haven't heard anything, she probably thought she was doing the right thing by 'rescuing' her.
Admin
Sorry to see that ELLIE is missing.
  • If your dog is microchipped please let the microchip company know that your dog is missing and at the same time, check that all details held are up to date.
  • If you have not already done so contact dog wardens, vets and local rescue centres, and in Scotland, contact the Police.
  • Give them all a detailed description of your dog with any distinguishing marks/scars or send them a copy of your DogLost poster.
  • You can find vets in your own area by clicking here.
  • A photograph of your dog is essential - if you have not already uploaded a picture, please do so by clicking on 'Update Details' above, or you can email admin@doglost.co.uk with a photo of your dog, quoting the dog's DogLost ID number.
  • You can also add comments and update your dog's status by clicking on the title bar at the top of the comments list. You will need to be logged in to upload photos, edit your dog's details, or add comments.
  • You can obtain a 'MISSING' poster by clicking on 'View Poster' above. POSTERS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. Start postering now!
  • If your dog is picked up and taken to rescue kennels, they can be re-homed legally after 7 days, so please try to visit rescue centres to look for your dog and give them a poster. Do not rely on checking by phone alone, as other people may not recognise your dog by your description.
  • Please keep us updated by keeping your dogs page up to date and check for posts from helpers that may have suggestions and possible matches or sightings.
  • If your dog has been stolen please inform the police immediately and obtain a crime reference number (CRN) for the theft.

  • DogLost is a public site and believes that postering / crossposting on the web site, together with informing relevant authorities and using local media, is the best way of getting dogs back.
