A search was started straight away and we found her sister a few streets away. As they were in a kennel and had been in the habit of chewing each others collars off they were not wearing one. There has been no sight nor sound of Bracken. We have phoned all the appropriate Wardens and posted on internet sites and someone told us of your site, so we are trying here..

Update from owner - Bracken is still missing
I am afriad this isn't Bracken. My husband has confirmed it. Thank you though for thinking of us x
Hi Veronica, Bracken could have been described as a Greyhound, but I am also not convinced about the markings. I will show my husband when he comes in and see if he can recognise better.. Thanks x

Not convinced about chest markings though and is described as a greyhound.
Could you just look at this found one? Its very like your girl but doesn't say the sex and dif head angle xx

No, none at all, its like she never existed. :-(
Any news of you lovely girl? xx
Sorry Lesley Brown, we had already checked this dog out, even phoned Leighs dog rescue, but no she isn't Bracken. After the one sighting of Bracken on the 31st there have been no other sightings of her xx

Woke up to a phone call that a Lurcher was seen on Bar Lane, Nottingham early hours of this morning. Have got family searching that area now , fingers crossed x
Thanks to all of you, Bracken is still missing with no sightings whatsoever, we can only hope xx

Sorry skynincha, That isn't our dog, thanks for thinking of us though...

Lovely Bracken has also got a Thunderclap xx

Thanks for all the advice, we are hoping that all this works and Bracken is returned to us as soon as possible. Her sister is pining as much as we are x

The crucial thing is to poster everywhere. Shops, filling stations, parks. Take a poster to the sorting office so the posties know about her. Talk to anyone who is out and about e.g. crossing patrol and recycling workers, milk delivery. Looking at the satellite map, there are a lot of green areas not too far away so poster on footpaths. Hand flyers out to dog walkers. Get on to the local community sites e.g. street life.
Sending advice sheets contact numbers etc
