Is a similar dog on Leigh - doesn't say if dog or bitch, has a little white patch on chest - can't see if that is a match or not from Annie pics

I still look out for dear Annie all the time, i cannot believe those two years have passed since she went missing its so very sad. Also Irish Terriers are not often seen about & i have always said to myself if i did see one i would question any owners that have one with them. Coming from not far from this area in Essex its heartbreaking that people can do this as you feel you know your community but obviousley we sadly don't as these people exist everywhere & anywhere in the country who would steal someones beloved pets & makes you realise how things like this can so sadly happen. I hope & pray that one day Annie will turn up, she was the one that brought to my attention about missing dogs which led me to follow 'Doglost' & twitter just to try & do something to help them be found. It opened my eyes to the dangers of the dreadful crime of dogtheft. Stay safe dear Annie where ever your are sweetheart xLast edited: 2014-10-02 14:48:30 by Kinsally

Kimmy, I have been sent a pic on fb - I think the dog is too short in the leg for Annie, but isn't Rags, Todd or Sally, and there is a head shot which looks like the bottom picture of Annie, so will try to pm it to you on fb to check out - I haven't got a direct link, only through Ragsie's fb page. This dog is in Belfast, and sex isn't given, but I'm not passing up any chance yo get any of these home.
Kinsally
Annie's details have been posted on the HelpFindThem Facebook page. I hope this will bring some long awaited news of dear Annie & many others on there x

Sadly not Annie, as owner has been located via chip. Pls keep looking though - you never know which one and when - thank you. x
Charlotte
I found 64092. She was definately docked (half tail). Her coat was a real state, but she looked quite well fed. I don't think she had been on the run for long as she came over to me all happy, but wouldn't take a biccie. Anyway, i took her to the vets and they were going to check her for a microchip.
wensmum
Would Annie grow a medium curly coat? There is a ginger bitch found looking so sad 64092, looks as though she has been out sometime, but she is docked
Kinsally
I hope too this will bring some very long awaited news. I really hope this dear girl is found very soon, its been too long come on sweet Annie come home xxx

This dog http://www.gumtree.com/p/pets/dog-found-near-aldi-snapewood/1011626605#1? is described by the finder and gingery all over - did contact them in case it was Rags, but they say no white x

Pinked means someones clicked on the "Report This" which is most of the time done in error
annie
What does pinked mean?I went to Dee's after the possible sighting and the vet and put more posters up in lower Rd
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Oh, Annie's owner, you've been pinked. Am texting you. xxx
Debs
I rang Dee for dogs groomers in Hullbridge to ensure she was aware of Annie and staff informed me that she has a poster stuck on her door for all staff to see.
annie
Thankyou to everyone keeping their eyes open for Annie
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Sighting of dog like Annie being walked on Lower Road, Hullbridge. We need to find out if this is her, but discreetly, as it may be a genuine owner. This is apparently, a very possible lead. Please do what you can. Many thanks. xxx

Can we get a body picture of Annie back on here too, please? If you have a problem, just send it direct to me and I can pop it up. x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Oh my gosh. Bumping Annie up again for sighting. Okay folks, can we get some posters out there? What newspaper covers that area - worth a contact - people do give up on others if they've seen missing dogs. Obviously we don't know for certain if it was Annie, but its the best lead we have for the moment.x
Debs D
I drive along from Church Road to Rawreth Lane most days so will definitely be looking for you. One of my work colleagues travels down the whole length once a day so I shall ask him to keep a look out.
Lets hope this sighting could be the beginning of good news.
Dee for dogs is in Ferry Road I think.
annie
An assistant that works in Pets at home,near the airport phoned me Saturday night.He said somebody was looking at the poster, and said they had seen Annie being walked down Lower Road.He said he had no more information!!!!!
annie
Where is Dee for dogs in Hullbridge?
Debs
Have the local groomers been given posters of Annie? Dee for dogs in Hullbridge is very vigilant and now new hands at the Rochford dog wash just outside Rochford square
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
It's always right to check every lead. Sometimes dogs can look a bit different; they have hair cuts or get matted, dirty and even tails could, in theory, change, (although I'm sure Annie's tail is just fine) so you are right to check it all. Well done. We have to keep it in mind that dogs are turning up all over the place because of their chips. I know right now it isn't enough, but one day it will be Annie. Hopefully, a soon day. Keep up the publicity whenever you can. Until she's back home, we keep on looking. xxx

Hi, Saw this post on FB the other day and the vets called us but the microchip numbers were different. So disappointed it wasn't Annie. Someone else has just contacted me about one on an Irish website but that has no tail and just doesn't look like Annie. Thanks to everyone for still keeping their eyes and ears open x

Oh I do hope it's her.

Annie, it was probably Sue from Doglost, otherwise it was a helper. SarahJane, absolutely well done on that! We have a great team out there. Scoobster, that would have been very possible too. Please keep looking. Can we all pop Annie on our face books and twitters for the Devon area as well? Worth a try. x

Just had a post on facebook by a friend concerned about a dog being sold/swopped by travelers and it looks like Annie ...we know his name and area he is in, what can we do?
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Okay, I know you've done it before, but I really think you should go again and speak to those new age campers and find out what you can at the sites, with care. You cannot believe what most say, so keep trying. Remember money talks so drop hints about rewards. Someone may well have her, but then again, some are just real clever at living wild. I'm inclined to think someone has her and at some point she may get loose and picked up and scanned. I know it must be so hard to carry on like this, but they really do often appear many weeks later. Praying Annie does too. We never say never. Come on Annie, where can you be? x
annie
Thanks Paula Griffins Mum.Its been 8 weeks and no sightings. xx
Paula Griffin's Mum
As we live in Hockley, we're always keeping an eye out for Annie, so if there's a planned/organised search where you feel 2 adults and a springer could be of any help then please post on here, we'll keep an eye out for instructions and will help whenever we can...
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Wow! Just goes to show how well you have done, Jane. You are amazing! This is one of those times where we just have to keep watching, waiting, working on thoughts and ideas and keeping our eyes open to anything and everything. If ever there is any news, do let us know directly as well as a post on here, as we may not see this page immediately and we'd need to bump her up. This girl is chipped and as many helpers know, chips do often bring these fur babies home. So, we will keep waiting for that call along with you. Annie will remain on here and we will keep looking, even behind the scenes, until she is home! Come on precious girl, let's get you home. xxx
annie
Annie is so famous.We took some posters to Discover Dogs and gave them to the irish terrier booth.They already new about her and were surprised nobody had approached them,when walking their dogs.7 weeks now,cant believe how the time has gone.Thanks everyone for still being so supportive x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Betts, thank you! It is very possible she is living wild, or with someone in the area. So appreciated.x
Dot2Dot, I am glad Annie's poster has been seen by lots of people as you just never know where the call may come from. x
Dot2Dot
Thats good news from betts there.
I was at discover dogs yesterday and saw Annie's poster on the Irish terrier stand.
So sad that she is still missing. Hope she will be home soon x
betts
We also farm the arable field adjacent to Woodview Boarding Kennels at the start of Lower Road and will keep a look out for Annie there now we have read previous postings. Will also put the word out to local farmers we know in the surrounding area as they will be happy to keep an eye out for her.
betts
We farm the arable land at Betts Farm and also own Marylands Wood and Crabtree Wood . We will keep an eye out for Annie when working on the fields and walking the woods in an effort to help you find her.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Okay, Jane, can you get word out again to the travellers/gypsies. Word of mouth if friendly or posters if not, as before. Try saying there is a huge reward (not a specific amount). If someone has her it should flush her out. We'll face what to do, if anything happens, but remember what I said in that first email on how to handle this. Sometimes owners have to keep reminding them before there's any movement. I know you also have some people living outside nearby as well, not the traveller, travellers. Please do this again with all of them if you can, but take care as before. If they think you've gone away, they might now have her out. x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Love the photo of Annie! What a truly beautiful girl. Owner giving out publicity flyers at show so bumped a bit. Well done, Jane. Thank you DebsD re farmer. That was an important thing we needed to know. Okay, anyone up for a brainstorming session? Let's try thinking outside the box, as they say. What could have happened to Annie - where could she be now? Is she right under our noses but hidden, has she been taken in by someone, could she still be living wild - it is very possible. Think, think, think. All thoughts welcome.
annie
Thought we would put another photogragh of Annie on here

I have found out it is just pigeon scarers not pheasant shooting.We are off to Discover dogs next week.We are taking some posters to the Irish Terrier stand.
Debs D
My O/H went to the kennels opposite this farm to buy some dog food yesterday and while there made some enquiries with the owner. She said nothing really goes on the farm, no shooting just some bird scarers. I've also asked other peope in this area and they have said the same thing.

Have checked it out and not Annie.Thanks everyone for still looking out for her xx

Theres a dog pictured on http://leighdogsandcatshome.co.uk/straydogphotos.html that looksa little like Annie (If it is Annie shes been shaved) but looks very similar, You may want to rule it out

You have to click through the picture until you find the right dog
Ref Salford area - B71519
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Well done, Jane. Keep getting the word out and reminding people. I'm sorry, but I keep asking about this farmer. Do we know anything more yet? What does he farm or is just a landowner/gamekeeper? This may be important.
Debs D
Put a poster up in Battlesbridge last week. Also have posted to all my facebook groups which include musician groups and motorbike clubs so quite far ranging but heard nothing back yet.
annie
Went for long walk in Hockley Woods this Morning,very strange without a dog.Everyone we spoke to knew about Annie and they are still keeping an eye out incase.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Annie's owner been in contact today, still no word. Please keep sharing her page. Thank you. x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Thank you, everyone. Okay, sometimes people don't know, or even if they do know, do not have evidence that a dog has been stolen, therefore, police will not issue a crime number. Sadly, not everyone knows what to do if a dog goes missing and that is why Jayne made this site. DebsD has kindly passed this on in case anyone can check this further or in case anyone knows about these others dogs. It could have been recent, it could have been a while ago, so unless we can speak to someone who does know, it's just thought put out there, in case it helps. Sometimes the smallest clue does help, so thank you DebsD. I am glad Annie is not close to the rail line and yes, Lilylouise, that is exactly what I texted Annie's owner this morning when we heard Rocky was home. Thank you. I am hoping this will give Jane the boost she needs right now. If anyone can help with more posters, please, please do so. You can never have enough and owners have done so well so far. We just have to keep pushing with this. Annie is somewhere. It's good to know others are out there watching out for Annie and your help and advice on here is greatly appreciated. x
lilylouise
Kimmybear, the area behind Jane's road is vast woodland and farmers fields, these stretch from Hockley to Hullbridge/Ashingdon/Rochford. It is very possible that Annie is living rough just like Rocky (40133) did for nearly 5 months before being reunited with his family today. x
Debs D
The lack of posters bothers me too but I thought I should mention it anyway x
annie
Hello,No we dont back on to the railway line.If other dogs have gone missing,where are the other missing dog posters and adverts in the paper? I have not heard anything!We checked with the railway and Know a train driver that has double checked.If other dogs have been stolen,would this be a matter for the police? x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Well, this may present us with two scenarios. Have these dogs been nabbed by someone who has accessed their gardens or have dogs escaped via the railway line? Yes, that would be a good idea Debs. Jane, does your home back onto the railway? If so, can you re-read the email I originally sent. If you need help, please text me or post on here. Is there anyone local to Annie that might be able to assist owner with this? Maybe some door knocking as DebsD mentions? Many thanks. Jane, I'm going to text you. x
Debs D
I was chatting to a fellow dog walker Sunday morning and mentioned Annie. She said she's not the only one, two other dogs have gone missing from back gardens in Marylands whose gardens back onto the railway. Would it be worth knocking on some doors there and A. find out if it's true and B. if they have any info. that may be of some help. Good luck.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Jane, hang in there. There's a caravan site at Hockley, if anyone could help postering around it, if not already done so and also try postering close to the food superstores. Everyone has to buy food and someone knows where she is. x
annie
Posters were up at the dog training at the community centre in Hockley.Thanks to people still keeping there eyes open. Guess someone has got her somewhere.Been a bad week.
sparkyS
Just to say I'm a local dog walker and am keeping my eyes peeled in Cherry Orchard and Ashingdon area where my mum lives. Have also put a poster out at Southend on Sea & District Canine Society ringcraft as we get a lot of people from the immediate area who walk regularly around there. Hope Annie comes home soon.
Paula Griffin's Mum
Not sure if this will help but every Sunday morning Benfleet working trails, a dog & puppy training club meet at Hockley Community Centre, Westminster Drive, Hockley, SS5 4XD - Tel: 01702 201515 - If this area is not postered it may be worth a go, good luck & come home soon Annie

Just to let you know there are still people looking, i have been scouting about several times. Im horse riding through the triangle area on friday so will be keeping eyes exceptionally peeled! x

DogLostJo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Hi Jane, so sorry there has been no news or any more sightings, it must be incredibly tough for you but hang in there. Keep going with posters, and as much publicity and coverage as you can get. There is an 'Apple Day' being held at Cherry Orchard Country Park next weekend (organised by the Friends of Cherry Orchard Group), may be a good opportunity to hand out posters etc and I am sure you will be most welcome to. Here are the details http://www.friendsofcherryorchardpark.org/events.html
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Jane, have a think about who may have been in the area? That farmer still bothers me, what can you find out about what he does there? Is there a game keeper? Please ask around for info on this for me. What does he farm or is he just a landowner? This could be a link. Thank you. Now remember she is chipped, so no matter where she is, she could well crop up by her chip. I really thought she would she would be home by now, so either she is living very well in the wild or someone has taken her in. You have done extremely well in making her famous and I am so upset that she has not yet surfaced. Hang in there, as they do get home after many weeks, even years, but we want her back home now. Keep up the food thing, often early morning or evening when its gone quiet, they pop out. We've had collies living wild for months and months and terriers are just as good at this, so she could just be hiding or doing a large triangle. Hopefully she'll be in Countryman's Weekly soon, thanks to Sue, and that often helps. x
annie
Annie is very famous in this area. Where on earth could she be?
Paula Griffin's Mum
I'm new to doglost, but live in the Hockley area, we've seen the posters & will keep our eyes open, so hope Annie finds her way home soon, her family must be in bits, stay positive x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Okay, don't worry as she is probably doing a triangle and is on the other part of it. If that was her, and it sounded like it was possible, she should come back to that place. So do keep leaving food where the foxes food was and check to see if it's eaten a few times a day. Then you know when to stake it out. Leave something that smells of you at that location as well and do a bit of scenting daily at that point too.
Secondly, this farmer, is there a game keeper there? Is it that sort of farm, or what does he farm? Arable? Livestock? I'm guessing its arable hence the shooting. I am wondering if they deliberately breed the phesants and have a game keeper. Can you find out, Jane? Not necessarily from him, but others? Thanks. x
annie
Nothing X
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Anything? x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Can you make friends with this farmer? Would be good to get him on side. No matter how horrible this is, you need him on side. Do your best. I don't like this shooting going on (and I love phesants) but you need to make him your friend, if at all possible. He may well see Annie. You are doing so well, Jane. Keep leaving food there. AS Jotty says, patience and time may be needed. You are doing fab! x
annie
Hello.We have been back there several times,,as have our friends.They were there tonight when the farmer started to shoot pheasants! Today we feel very tired.We have put more posters up and walked many miles.Tomorrow is another day xx
DogLostJo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Well done Jane. I will make sure Katies K9 pet shop have a poster and are aware of sighting, my sister works there so will ask her again to spread the word.
Just to mention re. Lashes, as lilylouise suggested, her and owners have emigrated! I remember the search well though as she was to thank for getting me involved with Doglost! It was a long and patientssearch, lots of posters, then the sightings came but she was very nervous, then with the definite sightings owners spent a lot of time in the area, bbqs etc, and eventually someone managed to catch her. Hopefully with loads of posters in the area you may get some more sightings and have an idea of what routes she is taking as she will more than like stay around the same sort of area.

Jane, I've been away and just got back to see this. This could well be Annie! Long legs? Yes. Go back to that email I sent you and do the scenting and leave food and water in that area in a safe place daily. Once she knows its there she will keep coming back, albeit foxes could eat it, but she knows where to go for the foxes food anyway, so keep doing it. Maybe hide and watch for a few hours, in turns. Remember she has gone a bit wild so if you see her don't chase. Call her quietly so she comes to you. I have high hopes of this long legged dog! Sounds good to me! x

Have you popped into 'Woodview Boarding Kennels' as they are at that junction? The owner/staff can keep a look out for Annie. It might also be worth you contacting 'Lashes' 18794 owner for some advice as Lashes went missing from Hockley twice (2007 & 2009).
annie
Went down before 6 this morning,kept calling her name until it was light.Will go back later with more posters for that area.Keep looking pleasexx

Bumped due to possible sighting! Fingers crossed.
Debs
Can we bump Annie please due to a possible sighting at the bottom of Ashingdon hill at the junction of Lower Road. I saw this myself and contacted owners who were there within minutes! this was definitely NOT a fox it came from the hedgerow to try and cross the road, by the time i parked my car to run to area, another vehicle stopped in the road, i couldnt see if it ran across the road towards Lower Road but we believe it did as my friend saw something, possibly a dog (NOT a fox). Unfortunately light was not on our side and after about a hour had to give up searching. Im gutted, gutted, gutted!! i didnt just pull up on the roadside now instead of pulling over around the bend. I have advised owners to go back with a bbq tonight and at 1st light to have a good look about. I will join them if im up early. Come on Annie, it's time to get snuggles little one
annie
Railway have been contacted.Someone walks the line once a week and they will contact if anything found.Thought we had a sighting in Eastwood Rd,Rayleigh area in week.Brown dog with long legs seen eating foxes food.We went and searched but nothing.
Debs
Word is spread amongst the small holdings in Beckney woods, my daughter helps out in one of them and rides the horses through the woods so eyes are peeled there. I travel through Hockley and down lower road and watery lane every day and have been vigilant. Good to see plenty of posters still about. Im free this weekend if anyone wants to come and walk the railway lines, just as a process of elimination.
Spangles
Jane, just to update, Essex CC Highways have acknowledged my email and they have informed the South Area Team to keep their eye out, also Neighbourhood Policing Team for Rayleigh, Rawreth and Hullbridge are aware and have her picture and details xx
annie
Yes,she probably would go down a fox hole!We had a call last ni8ght to say an Irish terrier had been found in Hayling Island.For a short while we were excited and then heard she had been reunited with her owners.So pleased for them but so wanted it to be Annie.That was seen on facebook.Well in paper today,so you never know.X
Dot2Dot
Jane, being a terrier is she the type of dog that would follow a fox into a hole or investigate a Badger set? Chin up...lots of people on the lookout. pray you have some luck today. X

Well done. Come on Annie! x
annie
We have done cabs,post lady.Out again today covering another area x
lilylouise
Jane, I have shared with dog walking friends and on my fb and also on Southend-on-Sea fb page. As well as your posters hand out small fliers to those who are out when the roads are quiet, postmen, milkmen, cab drivers etc. I found them really helpful when my dog bolted from Hockley Woods (was spotted at Hockley Primary School) but was eventually found days later when she walked into a house in Lower Rd. It is also worth giving the Southend Dog Warden a call 01702 215005 as our boundary meets theirs in Cherry Orchard Country Park. Good luck, with us all looking I hope she is home soon.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Absolutely well done Jane! Spangles is spot on re Network Rail. Let us know how you get on with them - you cannot believe what they say unless you make them check, or you will need to get as close as possible yourself, or a friend, without actually going on the line - it's dangerous and could be "live". If this line is close, as Spangles says, you do need to rule it out. Another dog has just come back today, who was missing for months, so this is more proof for you, okay? Hang in there, you are doing fantastic! Come on Annie, home time! x
annie
Called Acres way on the first day.My friend was at a dog show in Colchester.She took posters there.My Sister in law has posters up in Upminster.We covered miles today and out again tomorrow with more.Will call Railway x
Spangles
Jane, I have emailed Rochford District Council and Essex County Council Highways and asked my contacts there to circulate around all departments so that if a call comes into them they can relate it to Annie, this will include street cleaning, parks and open spaces,and also their animal welfare. Debs mentioned earlier about contacing Network Rail, its a horrible thought and one we don't want to dwell on but, unfortunately given the close proximatey of the line it would be good to ring them, 08457 114 141, you need to insist that a worker walks the track along the distance of where is she normally walked. Also give Acres Way Kennels in Burches Road Thundersley a call as Rochford use them to collect strays......lets get this little girl home soon, hopefully she is chasing rabbits and got carried away and lost all track of time and where she should be xxx
SanBarn
Thanks Jo, was just about to do it but saw it was already done. xx
Spangles
Thanks Jo you beat Sanbarn to it!!!
DogLostJo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
I have added spayed to her info and poster. X
annie
Thanks Spanglesx
annie
We normally walk over plumberow mount,marylands nature reserve, rochford hundred rugby club, infact all round hockley
Spangles
Jane I have asked Sanbarn to alter the poster description to include this so it will appear on all posters printed from here x
annie
Can anybody printing off the poster write SPAYED on it please so they know they cant breed from her.
Spangles
Jane, when you have time read on the reunited section about Archie, 37984, Archie went missing from Eastwood Road/Prince Avenue area, he was gone for about 8 days, but he was eventually spotted in Lower Road and his owner got that long awaited call. Don't give up hope, you have so much woodland and open countryside around where you live, she could run for sometme and not be seen, unless there is evidence to back up that she has been taken work on the theory she got out, how, will be the mystery, but she may just be relishing in a bit of rebelious freedom and once she realises she's been gone longer than she thought she will try to find her way home, the poster will help you and eventually someone is going to spot her, she is very unusual so she is going to be remembered. Keep positive, you've got lots of support on here. Where do you usually walk her? x
annie
Bramley,we have been to Ashingdon today,but if you could poster more it would be great.We have been out for 6 hours to Rochford,Stambridge,Ashingon
DogLostJo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Jane, are you any closer to knowing if she got out or was taken, or is it a case of you really don't know as she's never got out before, and equally there's no signs she was taken (other than her not being there i.e. no forced gate etc). Just thinking of the best strategy depending on which but at the end of the day, either way, publicity and postering is the best bet as you are doing. If you have not already contact the PCSO's for your area and neighbouring areas. They are out and about so good eyes and ears and are often a great help. x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Owner, has contacted me to advise they have put up loads of posters and postered around sites and whilst postering someone advised owner they already knew she was missing as they saw her in the School newsletter! Well done for the publicity, you are doing so well. As I said in email, we never, ever give up hope - we even have miracles on this site. I suspect if someone does have her, they are starting to shake a little in their boots. xxx
DogLostJo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Put some posters up by Gusted Hall and a few in Cherry Orchard park....more to put up tomorrow too. Jane, don't even start to give up hope.....there are lots of people out looking and postering.....you were responsible and she was tagged and chipped so you have that on your side as well. Keep spreading the word, putting posters up, telling everyone and anyone and figners crossed that long awaited call will come very soon and Annie will be home.
BRAMLEY
I live in Ashingdon so if you need any help postering let me know. Have you checked with Woodview Kennels at the bottom of Ashingdon Hill and Ashingdon Heights Kennels incase she is handed in to them.
annie
Will try there today.I am so low that I am begining to give up hope xx
Dot2Dot
Hi Jane, have you thought about checking with the eco-warriors that camp out at the back of Beckney woods? They maybe would just take her in if she wandered near to their dwellings.
Or even check the smallholdings off of Lower road.
keeping our eyes out and asking everyone we can. Good luck, she is a sweet dog, Carol
Debs
Have noticed lots more posters up today and many dog walkers stopping to read them too :-) my daughters will be riding her horse through the woods at the end of Branksome tomorrow so she said she'll keep her eyes peeled and spread Annie's disappearance with other riders
annie
Advert goes in the Echo which covers all this area,Basildon,Grays etc and Southend Standard middle of week.Comes out in morning but we dont get ours til the evening.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Jane, are doing really, really well! If a dog gets out of it's own accord, it will usually come back. So we have to think of all the reasons a dog may not be able to get back and work thru them. Sometimes, a dog will relish a bit of freedom to run and may go too far and simply get lost. If something has happened where she can't get home, we need to think of everything that may have stopped her. If she has been taken, we make her too hot to handle. As soon as she is in the paper, please tell us and we'll bump her page up so she can be easily found on here if anyone reading the paper looks. Are there any of the people mentioned in my email near you? If so, gets some posters near that area/s. The fact that she is spayed will help us tremendously if she has been nabbed. Let's hope someone has found her and simply doesn't know what to do about it. The paper and posters will hopefully fix this. You are doing fantastic!xxx
annie
More posters up today.Have already contacted Insurance,all ok there.I am begining to think somebody came in and got her as garden secure.Have contacted neighbourhood police,waiting for call back.In local paper all next week,mentioning reward as do all posters Jane x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Jane, as Annie's insured they should pay for posters and advertising - get on that now as it takes a while to come through. You can't wait though, you need to poster now as time is of the essence too. Come on Annie, where are you sweetie? x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Jane, I second Spangles thoughts re the police. If she has never got out of garden before and your thought is that it was secure and gate shut, you must tell police. If need be let them come and view the garden to prove it was secure. Unless she can jump or open the gate (has she ever before?) we need to assume this is a high possibility. Whatever has happened you really need to make Annie the most famous dog in the land. You CAN do this and you CAN find her! You will need a crime number from police, if may be hard getting them to give you one, that's why I suggested they check your garden to see it is secure. Incident number is not the same thing, you need a CRN. Call local radio, call local papers, check out the email I sent you and re-read the bit about rewards and calls. This is where your clue may be, IF she has been taken, okay. We need to leave no stone unturned. Also, should it be possible she has got out by herself then you really do need to check out that railway line! Network Rail does not scan dogs and rarely reports them to owners, so if this is possible you may need to be quite firm with Network Rail to elicit assistance from them. We can help you and support you if you need anything. Let's get those posters up everywhere! x
Spangles
Hi Jane was there any sign she could have been taken, ie was gate open when normally closed, are any side gates padlocked? Do you back onto other gardens or open land? Does Annie have a regular route she is walked on and does she know her way home from that walk, if she's been taken you need to report this to the neighbourhood policing team, might be worth checking with neighbours to see if anyone has noticed anything moved or missing from gardens. Alos do any of your neighbours have CCTV, worth checking and see if anything shows up, you may see her walking down the road, or you may see something else from around the time she went missing. If she's by chance just found a way out then we need to guide her home, if she is familiar with the area and walked in the area she should be able to do this, scenting is the key, great you've let her blanket out, follow the scenting instructions that you've been sent and scent regular routes you walk back to your house. Also ask the local cab firm if they will give all drivers a poster, and poster the train station as you are quite near and a lot of people will walk there. Also ask the school for help, its Friday, do they do a newsletter, if so ask them to put something on it, or will they use their email list to email out to parents just with a little note about Annie, you live very close to two schools so well worth a go. Also you have a main sorting office near by, pop in there and ask them to put a poster up, ask them to alert the posties that deliver to your area and poster like mad in every public place. Really hoping we get your baby home soon xLast edited: 2012-09-28 11:20:12 by Spangles

I'm in Hullbridge and several contacts in Hockley. Facebooked twice today. Will keep a good look out. Very local to me. Good luck everyone.

Thank you everyone. Heard from owners immediately. They are very distraught. As yet I don't know the exact circumstances of Annie's disappearance, so please do help to find this fur baby. Thank you, Sue, good move. x

I've put Annie on the list for an advert in The Countrymans Weekly magazine. It will be a few weeks before it's published though. Hopefully she'll be home by then but if not it will get her some media coverage.
annie
Thankyou to everyone that is helping us look for our Annie.x
Debs
Circulated this little lady on my fb lost and found page, also notified the local dog walker after i got a text this morning from a friend highlighting Annie's disappearance, she too is on doglost as a volunteer. Have noticed a poster up on the village noticeboard. As Jenny has said, would be nice to know if Annie escaped or was she possibly stolen? There is also a railway line very closeby so would be good to highlight Annie to the railways staff
Vittoria
Posted to my FB profile - fingers crossed x

Lots of woods around where Annie is missing from....needs lots of scenting home, owners follow the scenting instructions from Kimmybear, and poster like made around the area, especially the school and entrances to all the woods and fields, sharing on FB and spreading, lets get this pretty girl home quickly xx
Jenny
Sorry to hear - I live in Rayleigh and walk my dogs in Hockley Woods - will mention to fellow dog walkers. Did Annie escape or stolen?
