Possibly too old but the black spot in the middle of his white chest made me wonder.
He could have been chipped since you lost him.
Sorry if its not him, will keep looking.
There is still No News on Dippy, but have updated the poster and page in the hopes we will find him one day soon xxxLast edited: 2013-07-25 11:27:01 by Liz

we have a sighting of a black staffy running up and down belvoir road last night at 9.45 ive just had the confirmation of this, the only difference is that it was wearing a white necktie, so if anyone is in the coalville town area please keep a lookout even if its not him we can still make sure that another lost dog gets food and a warm place to sleep as soon as possible. Thankyou everyone Im feeling excited that maybe he is ok and trying to come home x x x
thats brilliant news, fingers crossed dippy is home soon x
got his picture in the Coalville and the Ashby Times on page 13 which is brilliant, i am very hopeful we might get a little more news now.
fingers crossed he will be home very soon, all you can do is advertise him out there as much as possible. i wish you every luck with the search and safe return of dippy. i have sent a friend request. then we can talk more. X

I will ask about Liz, our driver does head that way somedays.
I also included some posters in with the invoices to our customers. As you never know
They may have some information x nice to hear of some
Possible sightings, I'll post on my twitter and Facebook x
After a period of silence I have had 3 possible sightings yesterday but 2 were discovered not to be dippy however we still have one sighting of a dog answering Dippers description seen moving towards the estate behind the coop in Measham, it is a place i personally have little knowledge of but if there is anyone or you know of someone living in or around measham would you ask if they might have seen Dippy or heard of a dog fitting his description loose in the area. thankyou all for your help and keep sending me any possible sightings as you just never know. x
I've had a drive around hugglescote again this morning and been up
Ellistown, have you thought about dropping posters
In to the Roberts coaches depot, there always out and
About and also back onto the fields. Just an idea as
You may of already done this.

Thank you jules1971
Hi we run a business on south leicester industrial estate
Ellistown, we will keep an eye out!! Been up bardon alot
Recently as we found another dog up there, I will continue
To keep looking. Im always looking out for him whilst
Driving around. And I've informed people who live in your area too.
Have you took posters in to all local vets. As I know from finding
This dog they are extremely helpful. I hope he's found very soon.
Dippys owner will be at Greenhills Comunity Office this morning to discuss leaflet dropping and a search.
Last sighting on the 9th on farmland off Grange Road

Liz tells me that both the farms are being helpful.
Still circulating on twitter...
Bumping Dippys page due to new sightings. I wonder if either of the farms would be agreeable to setting up a field station to try to keep him going back?
Just to update, we have had several sightings of him in the grange road fields, either near the louella stud or near the grange farm. All is positive and if i can i will be scouting that area along with friends as often as i can. Thankyou and do keep an eye out x

Thanks rottie, very useful. Sorry we didn't catch up with him yesterday but at least we had a scent only an hour old so it wasn't too bad to follow, except on the top of Bardon Hill where he had gone round and round in circles a few times exploring. But eventually we found the trail leading away down through the woods to his home area. There are extensive woods, and Dippy can hunt rabbits and small rodents so he will be able to survive. Hope he will be home soon, and we are all relieved that he has moved away from the dual carriageway.
we have a concrete manufacturing works in bardon,will send copy of poster now as lots of lorry drivers in and out. really hope he turns up soon. x
Shared on Facebook. Come on dippy. X
Update... We met Pheobe and whisper who is gorgeous,at the Bardon road Chapel whisper almost instantly got a scent and was off i had to slow them down as my walking speed is slow lol. but off we went following dippys fresh scent all round bardon hall then up bardon hill and then down the other side following the fence, down into the woods and back round to the back of agar nook and green hill. we didnt find him but it is good news he is heading home to bradgate drive. im hoping to see him trotting round the corner very soon i have everything crossed in the hopes he will be with us soon, and thankyou to pheobe for bringing such a wonderful dog as whisper to the aid of another i cannot thank her and your team here on doglost for all that they have done for me and my dippy x thankyou x
Update, ... Another sighting this morning up in the fields behind Bardon Road Chapel., close to where owners were searching yesterday.
Please keep away from the busy dual carriageway Dippy.
Owners are meeting Pheobe and tracker dog Wispa shortly. Good Luck on the search everyone
There is a dog on fb lostdogs uk, found in mansfield he is black with a white chin, it maybe the same dog, i have suggested they post his picture on your found section, hope its your boy.
Thank you Owl, really appreciate it.
DogLostOwl- Area Co-ordinator, Sherwood Forest
Wispa and I have arranged to join the search tomorrow, hoping to find which direction he took through the scrub.
Update from owner. They were within shouting distance of Dippy yesterday at 5 pm but people tried to catch him and they said he looked terrified and ran into scrub bush and lost sight of him. This was South Lane near the Charnwood Arms.
Owners are scenting and leaving food as well as being out with in season bitches .
Bumping due to sighting
circulating on twitter
Have spoken to owners. Dippy escaped from the garden when gate left ajar. He is wearing a black collar.
He was sighted about 2 hours later on Bardon road near the Jet Garage where he was hit by a car and ran away limping into fields near the Birch Tree pub.
Owners have already rang DWs and rescues.
