- hi all! still no joy ;/ police are saying it is a civil matter, civil solicitors say it is criminal and therefore police should pursue. we have had meetings with different police officers, including sergeants; been to see our MP Roger Godsiff - all say dog theft is low priority and won't move a finger ;/ we are so frustrated and angry - been in touch with DDA Watch, Wheldon Law, vets in the area and beyond and still nobody there to help us. we know Heston is a high maintenance dog as he had aggression issues in the past and therefore do not want to find out he has been dumped somewhere and pts. any ideas please and we are scared mad!! thanks xxx

- @ why would Heston go to rescue centre and be killed? he has a home - with us. we can't wait for his return!!

- Please don`t misunderstand me as I also help with a breed rescue and understand the fact that the dog had been signed over, but could it not be possible that the family members involved actually do love and want to care for this boy? I hope that with the rescue centres being full to overflowing it would not be the case that if Heston is returned.... and then no home is found, that he may in the end face the threat of being PTS to make way for more dogs coming in? This is an unusual set of circumstances and I do hope Heston is not the one to suffer ultimately when he may possibly already be in a good home, even though it has been done the wrong way. Perhaps the family were not aware that the dog was going to be put into rescue until it was too late? Heston looks like a well cared for dog who has been microchipped and to my mind that shows he has been cared for responsibly. Threatening/warning off from Australia is a bit much though.... this needs to be handled with Hestons interests at heart at the end of the day.

- Think this is classed as a civil matter. Dog had been signed over as owners going to Australia, they asked to walk the dog one more time and it vanished. It is believed they gave the dog to a mamber of the family. Rescue has had phone calls saying don't look for the dog but police are not interested but solicitors said it is a crime and police should persue. A facebook page has been set up already but they are considering the paper and checking sites on the internet.

- Sorry to see that HESTON 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 on the green 'Find Any UK Vet' graphic near the top right hand side of the page under the 'latest missing dogs' photo.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 free – anyone asking for money to return your dog is not working for us, and may offer fake photos as 'proof'. If you think we may have called you but aren't sure, please contact us on the phone number or email address at the top of our homepage. We can't stop criminals from trying, but we can confirm if we tried to contact you.
