Three separate people have contacted me today confirming that they believe the Dog seen with the deer carcus is Bragi please keep an eye out if in this area contact me on 07745715616 if seen there have been sightings on its own and also with another dog try and get a photo and let us know exact location please help xxx

Update coming soon from owner...help appreciated in sharing...tx
charlie and sooty
This is been shared on face book..Please can anyone local to the 'Haldon Hill, Devon' area, please keep an eye out for Bragi. The recent 'wolf' eating a deer carcass sighting could very well be the stolen Bragi, an eye witness has confirmed the likeness, Bragi is a Norwegian Elkhound and would have no trouble with a deer! I am tagging some 'local' friends into this post so the audience is widened. If any one has any information, please contact myself or go to the facebook page 'findbragi' or contact Nicola Cree direct. Thank you in advance.

dog found on Ruth Whelan's post - Pets Forever - Lost, Found and Re-united. Found on a road in Sraffan? no idea where that is but this dog looks like the same breed but shaggier hair. Said not in the best condition but not skinny. Could it be Bragi? i have posted his doglost ID so somebody can take a look

There's a similar looking dog in Ashton pound Dublin but I think has white markings on chest but worth checking anyway. Will try to find dog I mentioned in previous post and get back to you.

There is a dog with a similar face colouring to Bragi on animals lost and found bedfordshire and Hertfordshire facebook page. Can't see his tail though but does have white on his feet. Please have a look. If this did turn out to be home I do live in Bedfordshire if that's where he is.
sophiesuds
Saw a poster today saying that She was at Crufts and that's where Bragi should be too, so may not be able to contact this week if she is.

Another possible sighting of a dog matching Bragi's description running loose and looking terrified near Robin Hoods Airport in Doncaster only 8 miles away from the previous sightings. Please keep an eye out in the Doncaster area and if u see a dog you believe could be Bragi take a photo alert the authorities and follow until they are in assistance xxx
Toast Master
Sadly its not Bragi Sophiesuds but thank u for alerting me xxx
sophiesuds
There's a dog featured on Deerness kennels for rehoming called Ryden. Not many details but similar colouring although says Akita but not sure. Please have a look for peace of mind.
Toast Master
Will phone them Sophiesuds thank you xxxx
sophiesuds
Maybe worth making rspca in doncaster aware too as someone may just drop him off there if they find him, how about the police too as they may see him on their travels, or even fliers to the post office mailing centre for postman to keep a look out too.
Toast Master
Still no further forward am intending putting an ad in local papers in Doncaster to see if that can shed some light have had a good few volunteers out looking for him today but no sightings since wed xxx
Elaine Tinker and Hemps mum

May we know which area of Doncaster please...ie nearest village or area of Doncaster city so we can send alerts out.
Toast Master
Two possible sightings of Bragi in Doncaster can everyone in the area keep your eyes peeled and if you see a similar dog let the authorities know so it can be caught dog looks to have escaped or been dumped and has been living rough second sighting stated it defo had an ear tattoo. Really need locals help here so please if you see it contain or call the dog warden thanks
Elaine Tinker and Hemps mum
Hi Toast Master, we will keep searching, I'm sure it will soon be our turn to turn Blue. We just have to keep believing xxxx

Hi thank u for alerting me and thinking of us but its not Bragi I'm afraid xx

Have you checked Dog ID 76276 on here. Listed as Husky Cross but looks very similar to Bragi. Most people would not know the difference between many of these 'husky looking' dogs. Hope you have him home soon.

Possible sighting received this message today : I have just come across your page.
I was out walking my dogs today and I noticed a man walking an Elkhound on an extendable lead today at 12.30pm at a place called Barons Haugh in Motherwell.

I wish I had paid more attention, I know the dog wasn't young and he had a bit of grey on his face.

I will go again and try and get a photo if I see him again. Hopefully he is local and goes there regularly.

Any dog walkers in the area please keep an eye out and contact me if you see anything I will be driving down for a look about next week

Elaine Tinker and Hemps mum
Have got fingers crossed for you xx

Please check missing dogs Scotland Facebook page a dog found in Ireland looks similar but you would need to check it xxx

Since then, I have contacted dogtheftawareness, I googled it, sent them an email with information of my girls, when they replied I sent them a copy of my missing poster, along with photos of Tinker and Hemp. They sent me a really nice email saying they will put my posters up on their stand at crufts, worth an email, fingers crossed we get news soon xx

My New Years resolution was to do everything possible to find him will check out lostdogsuk.com I don't know if anyone said to you to join located pets apparently the RSPCA check that site it costs £12 to join
Elaine Tinker and Hemps mum
Hi toastmaster, I have been told of another website today, lostdogsuk.com
Free to register on, every bit helps, I have registered my two girls on it xx
Elaine Tinker and Hemps mum
Still here, search every night. I was told about dogpages a website with all rescue kennels etc all over the country. I pick an area every couple of days, I then send an email to every one on the list for that area, it's amazing how much response I have had, also means a lot more people aware and looking out for them. I send every one a copy of the poster along with a few photos, well worth doing. It only takes one person to recognise them xx
Toast Master
Thanks Elaine keeping my eyes peeled for yours too.
Elaine Tinker and Hemps mum
Still looking for your boy, along with my two girls and Kizzy. I'm sure we will have them home for next Christmas, we just have to stay positive and Believe xx

Had to call 999 about a dog on the fast lane of the M8 in Glasgow, between junctions 11 and 12 (near the Fort shopping centre). This was just after 5.30pm. The dog was picked up by the police, but it has been injured and taken to PDSA. It was a big dog, looked a bit like a husky crossed with something but I couldn't be sure. I hope it's okay... THATS THE COMMENT ON THE POST XXXX On FACEBOOK WORTH CHECKING XXXX

Nicola has put together a video of pictures from Bragi's life. If you have him and you are keeping him from his family, shame on you. Please return him to the people that love him. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=917563574924715
Raidersmummy
Nicola has checked and the dog in Dornoch did not belong to the lady in Dingwall. Are you able give a description of the person with the dog?
Raidersmummy
Many thanks for this report, which I'll pass on to Nicola. I know that there is a male elkhound resident down the road, near Dingwall. We can check if it was him. Maybe the owner would put some posters up too. Thanks agan!
Lynn
Maybe totally unrelated but whilst visiting family in Dornoch, highlands, last week I saw a woman walking a male elkhound. I noticed it as you don't see many and I am a lover of spitz breeds. May have been a tourist rather than local.
Raidersmummy
This week has seen Nicola driving from one side of Scotland to the other, and beyond, as a lead led to the Berwick area. Nothing concrete discovered, but the area has been postered. The search goes on.Last edited: 2014-08-01 11:12:05 by Raidersmummy

Two possible sightings in the same area. Nicola is going to check them out tomorrow.

Three weeks today since Bragi went missing. Missing my boy so much the pain I feel is unbearable hoping that he will be back home soon where he belongs. Think I'm doing ok then it hits me again. There has been around 5 possible sightings in the Shortlees area of Kilmarnock which would indicate that someone has him. Please whoever has him let him come home to his mummy, there will be no questions asked regarding how you came by him we just want our boy back xxxx

The search for Bragi continues. He may no longer be in the area. The word is getting out nationally, but we still need people everywhere to share his poster and the link to the Help Find Bragi page: https://www.facebook.com/findbragi If you see an older elkhound male that might be him in your area, and you haven't seen it before, please ask the owner where it came from. It could just be Bragi.
Toast Master
Have been going out searching on a daily basis with the girls and also phoning every organisation known its really got so bad that I don't need to give mine or Bragi's name when I phone. Karen and I laid a trail today of old baby clothes , nappies etc my daughter has been out and about round Ayr and Girvan putting out posters. Tonight I will be printing off more for tomorrow when myself and Karen are planning to visit all local farms, pet shops, pubs, riding schools etc and get his posters out everywhere you could imagine xxx
JoJo is sitting drawing pictures of Bragi just now her way of helping by making wee posters shes desperate to find him xxx

Message from Nicola, Bragi's owner: "Now one week today since my beautiful boy went missing, we just want him back. My 6 year old is crying in her sleep for him and sleep walking I'm worried what effect the stress of this will have on her immune system and I don't think we could cope with a hospital admission at this time. Please, please, please if anyone has information about his whereabouts or if there are any sightings then get in touch he is a much loved member of our family and its not the same without him".
Raidersmummy
A possible sighting at Craigie Woods near Ayr had Nicola out, hoping, but it turned out to be a female akita, possibly just off a litter. The word is getting out there.
Happiness yorkie lover xxx
Hope he is found soon what a lovely dog xxx
Raidersmummy
I've spoken to Nicola again this evening, and she is now offering a reward for Bragi's return. If someone is holding him, I would ask them to consider that Nicola has three daughters who are missing Bragi very much. One of the girls, two of whom are very young, has a serious illness and her condition is not helped by the stress that Bragi's disappearance is causing to the family. If you have Bragi, or know where he is, please, please contact Nicola, I beg you. Someone, somewhere must know something! A Help Find Bragi page has ben set up on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/findbragi

Hy have you checked all the animal rescue centres in your area? As he is tattooed and not chipped they may not have noticed.....keep onto the Dog Warden also

I have spoken to Bragi's owner Nicola and given as much advice as possible. Also made up fliers and emailed them to her to print off and distribute.

Day 2 and no sightings of Bragi anywhere. Thanks for updating/enlarging the photos. The word is being spread via social media. I will check that posters are going up. Nicola is finding this very difficult. There are small children involved too.
Raidersmummy
Another photos of Bragi here: https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=911893662160962&set=p.911893662160962&type=1&theater His owner confirmed two hours ago that he is still missing, although they have been out for most of the night searching for him. This is sheep country, so it is deeply worrying.
Raidersmummy
Checked with owner and he is tattooed, but not chipped. A visitor let the dog out of the gate and he bolted before the owner could catch up. I can't believe this - I only registered my own dog a couple of days ago, and now I got a call that a friend's dog has gone. She's distraught. I'm finding it difficult to share this more widely, as it comes up with Newfoundland instead of Norwegian Elkhound.Last edited: 2014-06-22 21:43:26 by Raidersmummy
