I heard that Maccabee Kennels rehomed a dog described as beige and white Greyhound. I have been trying to contact them for nearly a month now but they won't answer my emails. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Glad Louie has settled in! Let me know if you need any help postering anywhere, have you tried to get a story in the News Shopper? That would cover most of Kent?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

There hasn't been any more phone calls or sightings for nearly two weeks now. I am going to put up some new posters close to home, just to jog peoples memories. Louie has settled in well, and most people in the park have thought that Willow was back, because he looks just like her, but a lot bigger. It's nice to have a dog back in the house, but I still want Willow back.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Sorry computer been acting up for a couple of days. the lady in Croydon said she had seen a dog in Bridle avenue, Shirley. Have not been able to contact her yet. will try again over the weekend. Willow's brother is coming to stay with us, his current owner says he is a bit of a handful and keeps chasing her cat. So hopefully we can get Willow home in time to see him. Thanks everybody for all your help.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi, newcomer Bob at Croydon. Just printed some posters and will put some along Purley Way- Sainsbury's , DIY stores ,Local garage, etc. We do get Travellers moving in and out of this area. Is there any more info. as to where seen in Croydon,etc? With enough people looking out, we must get a result. Good luck.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thanks Milliemoe, I went to South Ockenden yesterday, there is a massive gypsy site there. Postered all along their road. And I spoke to a couple of them on a smaller site where there had been a report of a similar Lurcher. Turned out the man had a lurcher himself same colour as willow but they were kind enough to take a poster and said they would keep a look out. also had a call from Shirley in Croydon!! But I can't get all the way over there. But will investigate anyway. I have reason to believe that she is not on star lane anymore. But am going to Swanley town centre tomorrow to put up some posters around Asdas etc. also its market day there so more people will be in town.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
MillieMoo
hi viki - hope you had a good weekend. Anything more calls or news? Want me to do anything? Just a thought I had, if she was being walked around star lane, maybe gipsies on star lane site sold her on on local pub to someone on council estate in star lane? Went round there yesterday, no sign and no posters left. Do you want me to put more up? Ann xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Went to Swanley Park on Thursday, have posted that part. I will be away for the weekend. Will try Asda etc on Monday. I was going to take Willow to the show at Windsor. Good LuckLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Want to say thank you to Charlie on Radio Kent for talking to me, I was a bit nervous. But a strange thing happened later. About 10.45 that night I had a phone call and a little boy with an Irish accent told me he had seen Willow in Swanley with 2 boys being walked up a lane, near St Mary Cray, yest it's Star lane again. I thought he was going to say he had the dog and wanted money, but maybe he will ring back. He probably saw the posters near star lane. Now I'm totally at a loss as to where she might be. I saw someone yesterday who has contact with someone on Star Lane and she said that he told her the dog is definately not there.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Great mention on Radio Kent/Solent/Berkshire/Oxfordshire/Southern Counties yesterday! Presenter wants to hear when Willow comes home! Owner following up tip off at the moment - fingers crossed today folks. Have sent Willow's poster to a friendly policeman who deals with illegal coursing in the Essex/Herts/Bucks areas who may see her on his travels... lets hope eh.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

A lurcher like Willow has been seen outside a gypsy camp in south ockenden. I am going to drive over on Monday and have a look, apparently the dog has only been seen in the past two weeks. Fingers crossed. Maybe Tazzy's mum was right about essex!!!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Millie thanks for posters in Star Lane, no news yet not a phone call or anything, Police called but are unwilling to go on site, and say they cannot arrest the boy in question. Have e-mailed Bromley council but have not had a reply.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Brilliant MillieMoo! Don't forget by garages, they have to put copious amounts of petrol in those big 4x4s... and see if you can find the local pub?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Mentioned Willow on the BBC London filming today, can't guarantee they won't edit it but hopefully if Willow's not home by Sept they might show it.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Millie put posters up in the nearest roughest pub and make sure you put ?100 reward in figures-as not all can read and write. I say ?100 because they always say they want double what you ask and petrol money-the going rate now is around ?200. Also target the fish and chip shop and local garages-as they all drive hungary 4 wheel drives!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

To millie Moo, thank you for the offer but please don't attempt to go near the site , it is Star Lane, apparently not a nice place at all. Maybe a few posters nearby would help. I had another false alarm this morning, Radio Kent said yesterday that a Lurcher had been found near Sevenoaks, but when I phoned it was only a pup about 8mths old, is there any more lucrhers missing in kent area. Contact Radio Kent for info.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thanks Millie moo! I am sure owner or Sherlock bones will get in touch with you shortly. Sherlock Bones is being filmed right now for BBC London so her phone is switched off. Many of our reunited dogs are to be featured in tomorrows Daily Mail-unless they suddenly get a breaking story!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi, I am in Sidcup/Orpington area, and am willing to visit/look at the gypsy site you were talking about - any idea whereabouts it is? Also, a good tip, a friend of mine lost their dog a couple of years ago and was informed that a dog same os hers was on a gipsy site by her childs health visitor. Turned out is was her dog. Health visitors have to visit these sites on a regular basis to check the children, and would see any dogs that were on a particular site. Worth a phonecall to them? You never know. Let me know if you want me to look or put up any posters. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi All, I've been computer-less for the last week so only just seen the email about Willow. I'll spread the word here in Chatham and keep a look out around any gypsy sites, though I can't think of any to go to. My partner has several friends in Dartford/Gravesend so will get him to ask them to look out too. We have a lovely Lurcher ourselves, they seem to be so commonly stolen, it's awful. I'm sure that if we all pull together, we'll find Willow soon. Sara. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Please guys - seems like a credible report on the Orpington area - need help with posters though.... Willow was lifted over her garden fence - ironically she was rescued as a puppy from travellers... only for them to steal her back now... let's get her back!!!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Jayne - because Danson Park/Welling is on the A2 do you think you could please do an email to helpers in the SS and CM postcodes (to cover just over the Dartford Tunnel and also ME to cover the other direction on the A2? This area is similar to where Tazzy's Taz went missing in terms of proximity to the A2 - i don't want to see any angle missed. DeexxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Had a call from Battersea about a Lurcher brought in Saturday from Bexley area, but not Willow. So if anyone has lost a Lurcher in Bexley area, apparently a sable/cream colour with a funny eye. Approximately 2-3 years old not speyed, they should contact Battersea in London.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
