7 stolen spaniels recovered - owners not yet identified - u should follow this up
Amazing news that some of these gorgeous dogs have been found, but wonder what they have had to endure, since they were stolen. Don’t know the full story, and I am so sorry that you have lost Bentley. I prey that Carol and Fudge are found safe and soon. I hope the evil scumbags that do this kind of thing, get what they deserve. Karma xxx
I am very pleased to let everyone know that Bijou has been found and reunited. I will leave it to those who were involved to post the details. The 2 still missing are Carol and Fudge.
Contact numbers and email have been changed on request of owner.

A post on Facebook showing a gold cocker spaniel that someone was trying to sell in the street for £2000 pounds. I’ve screenshot it if you want to check.
A dog who may look like Bijou has been found in Taunton. I have sent a message via your Facebook page with a link to the post and picture. The dogs coat is not good so it's hard to be more definite.... The post is also on the Lottie''s Legacy Facebook page. Hope this helps.... x

Please send photo to ref 6 stolen spaniels and we can forward to owner...Tx.
I can't add a screenshot here. Is there an email I can send a photo to? Relating to fudge and carol: Facebook post is set to friends only so can't link here. Someone I know in Stockton has just taken two female Cockers on. They're not in show clip and I'm aware blue can change, and they'd have aged. Last edited: 2019-08-18 07:24:20 by EsarosaUK

Please can you check the cocker spaniels that we’re found at a puppy farm in Grosmont near Whitby. The farm was raided by the rspca for dogs being kept in terrible conditions. There is a golden cocker , orange roan and various other colours. Not sure which rspca centre took the dogs but there were many cocker spaniels as well as other breeds seized. Please can someone enquire. Coverage of the dogs was on gazette live Teesside news. Fingers x’d. Xx
RIP Bentley 💔
Storm Reunited ❤️
Cilla reunited ❤️
Fudge, Carol and Bijou are still missing.

Worth a look - bottom left?
Has the stunning looking dog found in Ireland been checked out ?
There is a sighted but not caught spaniel similar to the top left one, it is on fb YorkshireDogs Lost and Found
Stunning dog like this found in Ireland 126483. Looks more than an average cocker. Sex not know at this point as dog is frightened. Good luck
bentley in the news yesterday
Can you look at found 126125 just in case.
When these THINGS called humans are found,
they should chop their B...... hands off, they won't be doing it again
my heart breaks for Bentley's know someone must know who these things are
but I can tell this Karma knows you, and one day will be calling on you, you can count on that.
I am so sorry to hear this. It breaks your heart so goodness knows what you are going through. Why would people steal dogs and abuse them like this? There are so many sick people around, the law needs to come down heavy on them. A civilized society cannot let this thing happen, and it seems to be happening a lot more lately. We had a lurcher stolen from us back in the 1980s and that was a rare occurrence back then. I hope you find some comfort in the fact that Bentley is at peace now. XXX
Bentley? I'm so sorry for what you were put through - and I'm so ashamed of the humans that hurt you. I promise, if I ever meet your abusers, I will torture & kill them very slowly until they scream for mercy.
It's time to stand up.
I understand if you have children you need to protect. But, if like me & your babies are grown - please speak out!!!
I'd happily go to prison for attacking & killing a furbaby abuser.
Just send me the name, address & details of this retard & I'll kill the mother fucker.
I always wanted to make the world a better place for our dogs - so bring it on.
I sincerely hope I'm arrested for threatening to kill someone over a dog.

Run free and sweet dreams BENTLEY ❤️❤️❤️

The Rainbows Bridge Poem Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Update on Bentley. RIP 💔.

It is with a very very heavy heart that we have to break the unthinkable awful news that sadly our Bentley has succumbed to his injuries that were inflicted on him by these wretched thieves, who stole him with five other cocker spaniels from their beds on 1st November 2017.
Bentley and Cilla were recovered on the streets of Darlington weeks later and whilst they were excited to be home it became very apparent they had both suffered terrible abuse and torture and consequently underwent extensive treatment at the vets. Cilla has hopefully made her way through these injuries with no lasting effect but unfortunately the repercussions of Bentleys injuries came back to bite which had resulted in his brain being damaged by infarcts of scar tissue breaking away in his artery and hitting the brain. Within a matter of two days, he became almost unresponsive and semi comatosed. There was nothing further the vet could do to help, they couldn't even get a line in as his veins were collapsing. Poor poor Bentley suffered one final twist in this awful situation and Sunday morning, lost his fight for life.
We are all lost for words and our heart goes out to Julie who loves Bentley with all her heart . There are no words as to how we feel as to what these thieves have done or put poor Bentley and Cilla through. When we find out who you are, god won't even be able to help you!!

We are going to miss Bentley and in his honour we must continue to search for the others. Please share share share the poster far and wide and help with everything in your power to bring these babies home. Storm, Fudge, Carol and Bijou, we are coming for you as quickly as we can to bring you home where you belong.

Bentley, we all love you and are going to miss you and we send our deepest sympathies and love to Julie who is obviously absolutely distraught. Please don't contact Julie direct at this time, feel free to send your condolences on this post, then she can read when feels strong enough. RIP gorgeous Bentley 😰😰😰

We will see that those who did this sickening crime pay for it, one way or another!!

Sadly bentley who was found has succumbed to his ongoing injuries caused by the abuse he suffered at the hands of the free bentley x
Lisa reports: Anyone know if someone is missing some spaniels? Three were running loose in fields in and around Old Royston, Chevet and Newmillerdam areas? My dad has managed to get one of them the other two wouldn’t come to him. The one he has is safe, warm and looked after. Ideally he wants to find the owner and reunite them with their dog rather than take to Cliffe kennels. Please share, share, share as far as possible they could have come from anywhere. - This message was posted on Facebook on the Barnsley Community Page
