Please look on Kent live page. 20 dogs seized by rspca from kennels in Folkestone. Spaniels and various other breeds. One spaniel looks very much like Ellie who was stolen PLEASE LOOK AT THIS SITE. Thank you so much. Fingers x’d and praying too xx
Please look but especially at picture 7

Thanks Jean the found dog has since been reunited with owner.
Could this dog be Ellie? No gender given.
Dog been found on fb looks a bit like Ellie Swindon lost and found pets - same markings but not sure of gender - been handed to vets an hour ago says chipped to breeder though so not sure that is right - but my so similiar - could even be related - been told it’s a boy sorry Last edited: 2019-07-10 23:21:08 by Debbie123
Ellie ?
Please check this found dog in Swanmore near Southampton, many people have suggested it could be Ellie, it doesn’t say sex or breed, looks more ESS to me (copied from Facebook & I put breed in as ESS) - markings / ears not quite right but as there are similarities and people are saying, thought it best to let you decide rather than skip past the post and rule Ellie out. I’m always looking out for her and truly hope she will be reunited with you soon 🐾- edited: 2019-06-24 20:37:47 by .

Ellie is still missing, thank you to everyone who has sent details of dogs theyve seen they think could be Ellie, sadly none are Ellie but the support is amazing, Ellie will be found! x
Could this be ellie ?
Was there any CCTV in the area, where Elie was taken?

If anyone has any knowledge of where Ellie may be (And she has to become somewhere), And is reading this please call the above number, or if you prefer contact Doglost. It will be treated in the strictest of confidences. You may have seen someone with a dog that resembles Elie. Just because a person seems legit, doesn`t mean they are. Some people can be very plausible. THANK YOU X
Georgy Porgy
Wondered if Ellie had been spayed or is that info you don't want to reveal? I check in every day in hope of some news & keep her picture in my bag everywhere I go. Still hoping. Don't give up X
These thieves only think of three thing, apart from gain, and that is"Me, Myself, and I" My heart goes out to her owner. She keeps being made "TOO HOT TO HANDLE" Poster around the area, and surrounding areas. Post flyers through doors too. Ask around, especially those with children,as they cnm be very observant. Post in shops;l post offices too. Hand out as many posters as you can; where, and when you can. Ask family, friends, and neighbours to share as well as DL. Twitter too. Post a STOLEN DOG in a National newspaper too, saying there is a reward for her safe return. Post on other sites too, such as Missing Pet Register, and Animal Search UK. etc. Good that she is microchipped. . Hopefully her microchip will works it`s magic.

Listen to Ellie's dad talk about the devastation caused since she was stolen last October

"I've been ill, I couldn't drive for a week. Her bones are still on the seats and in the front of the van, and in the house, her toys are still laying around. I just can't get over it."

Ellie was stolen from Towcester #NN12 on Friday 19th October. Ellie had spent the day working with her dad on the new Persimmon Homes development near to Towcester Racecourse. This was near to the neighbouring Bloor Homes development and Ellie was stolen as her dad popped he in his van whilst he packed away

Northamptonshire Police are checking CCTV footage from both developments, if you have dashcam footage and were in the area anytime between 2:30 & 4:30pm PLEASE PLEASE would you mind CHECKING DASHCAM FOOTAGE incase anything was caught on this that may help us find Ellie?

You can either send us footage or contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 to send directly or email quoting Ellie
Sharon M
Keep checking traveller sites. Also check donedeal, dragondriving and preloved. Somebody reported dogs had been advertised on Shpock. Fingers x'd for your dear girl. Xx
Have to ask but has anyone been checking Catavan sites. Spaniels, especially pretty ones, are one of their favourites!
Sharon M
I am praying for the safe return of dear Ellie. I do feel now that dog owners will become vigilantes as the police do not have enough resources and manpower to look for these so called dognappers ( I call them evil scum of the earth!!!!). Don't give up I'm sure she will soon be home. Make her too hot to handle and contact local radio stations, local papers and TV stations . I attend many dog shows and will be making cocker breeders aware. Keep strong Iain we are all thinking about Ellie xx

From today's Sun article x

Devastated Iain Edwards, 48, had his beloved two-year-old cocker ¬spaniel Ellie stolen from his van just two weeks ago.

The landscape gardener, from Northampton, said: “It was a typical working day. I was at a house on a new estate and the owner wanted the garden sorting out.

“Ellie had spent the day in the ¬garden with me. The site was busy and it was fully of builders and noisy.

“I put Ellie in the passenger seat of the van as I was loading up to go home, but when I came back I noticed the side door was open.

“I put my head in and thought, ‘Where’s Ellie?’ Then I noticed my wallet had been taken from the dashboard and I knew then that my ¬gorgeous dog had been stolen.”

The police arrived within minutes, but Iain was so upset he was unable to speak. He recalled: “An officer had to cancel my bank cards for me. The police said that people are now ¬driving around building sites looking for unattended dogs in vans to steal. It’s shocking to think that this kind of dognapping is happening.”

Ellie’s picture has gone out to 7,000 vets, she is chipped and Northamptonshire Police are still investigating.

Iain added: “My hope is that someone will drop Ellie off at a vets. She is my life. Pease bring her back.”
