If there are any members/volunteers in the areas of Stonehaugh, Bellingham & Otterburn areas who could help poster/leaflet in public areas for Ruby & Beetle that would be great. There is a suggestion they could be in that area.Last edited: 2019-12-03 10:41:13 by Max - Area Coordinator, Cornwall, Volunteer Durham & Ireland

Ruby & Beetle’s owner thinks there is a possibility that they are not together - therefore please all keep looking at any single Border Terriers you see. There is a long description of Ruby on the web site www.findrubyandbeetle.com - also lots of photos of Ruby on her own - you can zoom
In - one particular distinguishing feature is a band on her tail and also a pea sized lump between her eyes which you can feel under the fur, but can’t see, she’s now 6 years old. Please keep sharing for Ruby. There’s a huge reward for info leading to the safe return of Ruby and / or Beetle x

Ruby & Beetle now have their own web site - it pulls together all the photos, newspaper articles, support on Facebook & Twitter, videos, you can listen to Georgie’s voice describing what happened when they went missing. Please share this web site to new places, the aim is to reach people who are not on social media and may not have seen them before - some people use the internet but don’t have Facebook & Twitter for eg. There’s a YouTube channel where Georgie has put a huge number of photos , there are also pages which show just Ruby and just Beetle - this is to cover the possibility that they may have been separated, which of course, we all hope hasn’t happened but every possibility needs to be covered. There’s also links to this Doglost page for posters to be printed & a selection of other posters to share too. Please share to someone new today. Please help us find these girls - their family are broken x www.findrubyandbeetle.comLast edited: 2019-10-06 08:46:31 by thedogfinder

New information on FB

The information that I’m about to tell you has played on my conscience since I received it on Sunday. You may understand my Monday Mornings post after you read what I’m about to tell you...
A very proactive group member was filling her car with fuel on Sunday in Cumbria, her vehicle like many others has the Missing Ruby and Beetle posters on the windows. A man approached her looking at the posters and asked her if these were the 2 Border Terriers that the travelling community was talking about, she replied with maybe, he told her to bombard Wales with leaflets and posters, she asked him if he knew something and he turned as he walked off and told her to BOMBARD Wales with the leaflets..
We still don’t have a huge following in Wales, I have sent out some leaflets to a few who asked after Monday’s gentle post but I think this Man may know something, he didn’t need to approach this lady or even talk about Ruby and Beetle but he did...
I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place for what to do for the best, I just want to find my little dogs and without this groups help I can’t...
we need their profile spread throughout the Wales and the country..
£5000 REWARD JUST TO HAND THEM BACK!!
No repercussions, just tell us you found them...

There are some walks planned to highlight these two on March 10th - see events page on their group

Missing 33 Days... WE NEED TO FIND THEM !!
I have been up since 6.30am and spent nearly over an hour answering messages, sending emails and shouting at kids to get ready for school, and I forgot I hadn’t wrote this mornings update...
I spent yesterday talking with magazines about Ruby and Beetle having been stolen and placing ads in classifieds. 🤞
Reaching out to those who may not be on Social Media is the reason behind this.
I also answered lots of calls from people having spotted two Border Terriers running or with people, describing them to me etc..
Ruby & Beetle were the same size , no difference in height, equally matched, very similar. My good friends struggled to tell them apart..
Thank you and again my PLEA AND REQUEST...
KEEP SHARING POSTERS... KEEP IT MOVING..
Thankyou.. 👌👍

I have just read the Southern Reporter article too .
SURELY the local Police should be investigating this account of the 'unusual gentleman'?
They need to be asking if There is any cctv at the Visitor Centre etc .
Plz Ask the police for a CRN ( Crime reference number ) so that an Officer will be assigned to investigate the Suspected theft . Article reads:
There were reports of a really unusual gentleman on the day of the disappearance at Harestanes visitor centre – we just live along from there – and this lady sent me a message to say he made them feel very uncomfortable by making a big fuss of their dogs. The timings would link in with that.

I did report Ruby and Beetle as stolen to the Police, they weren’t very supportive.
Any advice from others..?

Just read the article mentioned below, can Ruby & Beetle be reported stolen, given what the local lady said about the guy making a fuss of her dogs and making her feel uncomfortable.
