Sighting at Luton Hoo- NOT Ruby
Report of a dog matching Ruby's description yesterday morning near the golf course/ Victorian greenhouse at the Wedding Venue section of LUTON HOO. If any locals walk that way, please keep a look out. ๐Ÿ™If you spot the dog, please take a photo and contact us ASAP. Don't chase, just keep it in your sight. Even if not Ruby, this dog needs to be caught safely. โค๏ธ Venue are aware.
Thanks @Dogfinder, had a lovely reply from Drone SAR, they can’t help in wooded areas as can’t see through trees. Let’s hope poster can be found ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ
Have messaged Nicky McCarthy DL Berks as a few of us think that the sighted dog mentioned below must be in the Reading Bowsey Woods area, Anne Green has contacted Drone SAR to see if anyone in area to help ๐Ÿพ
Just posted in Ruby’s group incase Lindsay750 is on there to make contact with more info
Hello @lindsay750 please can you clarify a postcode area for Bowsey Woods - perhaps admin could send some alerts out to volunteers in that area. I think it may be Reading RH9/10 area or could be the one in CW3 near Crewe but wanted to be sure as the Bowsey Hill in Reading area would be closer to home. Thank you for posting ๐ŸพLast edited: 2019-10-06 15:42:34 by .
There is a dog similar to this dog running loose in Bowsey woods. It has just attacked a deer (looked hungry). We tried to catch it but it ran off. Sorry if it’s not yours but just thought I’d let you know.

I’ve contacted the lady who saw dog in her garden with Ruby’s pics, she’s just replied that it looked very like the dog ..even looked like same collar.

A dog fitting Ruby's description was spotted yesterday at 12 noon running along the perimeter fence of Pinewood studios on Seven Hills Road. Owner was notified and went to search but had no luck spotting her.

CRN issued, status changed to stolen & CRN detail added x
Hi. Thanks we called the kennels and whilst it’s teally similar it’s not Ruby. Thank you for your message and please keep looking. X
There is a similar looking dog at Doesn't say whether male or female but worth a look.
Shared to face book group _ Hughenden Valley What's Going On HP14_hope Ruby is home soon.
sighting of a brown whippet this morning in Widmer End towards Four Ashes around 8.45am this morning. It was light brown and had an orange harness on. there have been a few sightings of this dog. This is not far from Great Kingshill - where we had a sighting last week. Please keep a lookout if you are in the area.
Ruby was mentioned on Mix96 today. I’m sure this has raised Ruby’s profile more and hopefully will bring in some much awaited news of her.

Sadly this turned out not to be Ruby but another local dog who had jumped a garden fence after a cat and is now safely back at home. Have confirmed with photos and the owner. The hunt continues for Ruby, focusing back on the Hopper's Farm / Cockpit Lane area, but she could realistically be anywhere.
I'll go for a look around later today. Interesting as this location and where she went missing from are linked by railway line, so it's possible she has followed the green way sidings?

The search for Ruby has taken a major step forward this morning. At 1am this morning Lauren Deane and her partner Paris contacted me having seen a dog matching Ruby's description - seen searching for food in ...........Aylesbury! She was seen on a green outside the Southcourt Baptist Church which is Penn Rd, Aylesbury HP21 8HW. They got very close to her (enough to take the photos) but she moved away each time. She was calm but nervous and obviously very hungry. We are now concentrating the search to that area. We have just returned home but will return there later today. Please share with the Aylesbury community. We are getting closer ... hopefully x — with Sam Brooks and 3 others at ๏ฟผSouthcourt Baptist Church.

We are now presuming that Ruby has been stolen - 'theft by finding' - although the police will not give a CRN, she hasn't been seen since she went missing. So if anyone has seen her with 'new' owners or hears a dog barking in someone's house or garden, that didn't have a dog before, please let us know.
Thank you x
Still missing

Update from FB page - Have spent 4 hours this afternoon with my collies, Rae and whippet Louie walking from Whielden Street, through all the fields following the A404 to Winchmore Hill.
We have searched all round the fields and woods on both sides of Whielden Lane, around Whielden Gate Farm and the old picnic area.
Neil then joined us along with Jeremy from Drone SAR who was kind enough to fly his drone on a search over the area. Neil is now with Jonathan and his search dogs to see if any scent can be picked up.
We are all working incredibly hard to try and get Ruby back home, so please keep sharing and keep looking.
She must be out there somewhere.
Thanks all xxx

Just back from Winchmore Hill. We didn’t find anything. But Louis our other Whippet was going crazy at times. So we have to treat this as a sighting. Keep looking. Xx
Just had a call from a guy in winchmore Hill who saw a brown dog matching Ruby’s description at an old picnic area this morning. His dog was running with it and he thought it was a dear. But it barked and ran away. Could be our first sighting!!! On our way
DogLostNicky - Area Coordinator, Herefordshire & Shrops, Volunteer Bucks
Owner aware & on the way. From Ruby’s FB group-

Has anyone looked in the woody areas around Hill Farm Lane. I heard a dog barking last night near my house (I know that could be anyone’s dog) but my daughter said she was walking our dogs yesterday and there was a dog barking in the woodland area in the quarry. I might be able to look about there today but if you are going to hodgemoor woods walk back down next to kiln cottage and have a look.

Possible sighting at 1230am sat night/Sunday morning of a whippet running at speed down the A413 towards Chalfont St Giles. Sighted between Old Farm lane and Willow Lane.
DogLostSam99-Area volunteer, South Bucks
Just spent 90 minutes walking the fields with owners sons, but now too dark to continue. Hoping she hasn't ventured down onto the A413. Hoping she will find her own way home as went missing on a regular walk, so area known to her with easy access through the fields back home. Advised to place her bed outside. Will head back out again first thing tomorrow.
