Have you got a picture of this pups parents to see what colour they go when older. We have a 7-9 month old that has been found near Coombe Abbey which isn't very far from where this girl went missing.
Hello, a 9 month old female GSD has been sold on Preloved - apparently found 6 months ago - could it be Star?

Hi, There is an 8 month old shep that looks like Star but down as a male on the Cefni German shepherd website, picked up as a stray, called Ace.Last edited: 2014-03-01 21:43:36 by lizzielops
Is there no news of Star? I keep trawling Gumtree and net ads - she must be starting to look a little different now.
Thank you LisaK for checking the found puppy. Just so sad it wasn't Star & that there is no further news of her :(

Sioux.There are travellers at the 'over the bridge' side of Woodway Lane/Shilton Lane. I tried to have a look but couldn't see anything.

Are there posters in all local pubs, Pet City etc? I don't have printer. I haven't seen any at traffic light junctions or onlamposts yet.

Apparently posters have been removed from the area so I have been and put more up tonight. Spoke to lots of people and surprised that so many were still not aware even though they live less than a mile away from where it happened. Noticed it was on BBC teletext two nights running. Have got police to update the age as their press release stated she was seven months and she is only 15 weeks old. More posters going up further afield tomorrow.

There is a female being posted on facebook that has been found in Camarthen yesterday
markings look very similar - not sure if you can get the photo from the link - haven't posted a photo here before so not sure if I am doing it right

Article on the BBC website

Was able to talk about Star's situation in particular on BBC Cov & Warks, so I hope this will help. They also repeated Steve's audio from earlier.

This little dog is known to my daughter-in-law and her family are all spreading the word. Really hope she is made too hot to handle and will be back home very soon.
BBC Cov & Warwicks have asked me to go on drivetime today to talk about dog theft in response to Star's theft. I'll make sure I mention her.
Checked out 3 local travellers sites today Brandon lane, woodside & the Mgann site near the airport. Spoke with travellers on all 3 sites, none had any knowledge of star.
Hope she is found soon - shared all over FB
What an awful thing to happen to Star and her owner. I would just like to say thank you to everyone who is helping to spread the word by postering and keeping their eyes and ears open xx
Have shared with all contacts on FB. Does anyone know the location of the 'people' referenced by Nikkidog below??

If they went on road up towards toll bar there has to be CCTV at some point - was the owner and Star by Little Chef park zone??Trying to visualise. I am staggered and appalled in equal measure at the lack of regard and general vile behaviour of the amoral behaviour of such scum. I will do all I can to help.

BBC Cov & Warks running story on their breakfast show tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who has pulled together to help find Star. She is definitely hot right now.

posters have been put up by a kind lady - "Have put couple posters up Brandon woods , posters off Rugby rd ( Binley woods by allotments ) and given out and talked to people / dog walkers , who will pass it on within their community .... x " just in case anybody else goes out postering. I have also been informed that there is a traveler site just set up off Torrington Avenue in Tile Hill and have passed the info onto police.
Outrageous that this sort of theft ( or any dog theft ) is becoming more common. I really hope that Star is home soon and in the interim is being looked after. I know it is rare that prosecutions ensue in these cases which is probably why they continue to occur. I am too far away to help but am sure the owner is getting lots os help from doglost and that Star is being made really high profile. Local radio and newspapers always a good idea. A reward may well help her to be "found" too? Good luck.
Could be travellers. We have Irish travellers locally at present so will keep my eyes open. They have numerous terriers,a poodle and a pug x.

Is there any cctv in the area?
I've been sharing on FB also and joined the group! on the police news/press release below it says she is 7mths old not 4mths old! :(

It will need a co-ordinator to change the photos around, I have tried but it just keeps uploading the original pic for some obscure reason.
