the dog found in pangbourne was not our missing Goldie. So please keep your eyes open for him/her. I am Honeys foster mum hence the sign in name. She is looking great now and is fine indoors with me and the reat of the family,but she still will not walk on the street and is very scared of anyone that comes in the house. I have decided to keep her there is no way I could let her move on she has a long recovery ahead. I just cannot think how the other dog is now he/she must be somewhere. please dont forget keep looking.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Just to say we are still waiting to hear about the found Retriever. We have left messages but it appears they are not there this week. But we will keep on to it. Still keeping our fingers crossed and hopefully we should hear soon.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thanks, we have called about the found retriever and we are waiting for a call back as we had to leave a message. Sounds a little promising but trying not to get too excited. I think the dog will have a really bad case of mange like Honey did. But being disorientated maybe!!! Will sit on the edge of our seats now until we know. I will post as soon as we know. As for the area is it a very large open countryside and we have told horse riders and dog walker to please be alert. We have had people telling us they have seen a dog like that but they havent been close enough to catch it. I am praying he is still ok and by now he may want to be caught. Honey is still traumatised and we cannot think what people have done to her to make her so bad. The fosterer sofa is her Security if anyone enter the house and she has been brave enough to venture away from it she is in real panic to get back, and she has been with us 5 weeks now. Thanks for all your encouragement, we will keep you posted.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thank you Emmalou, We have check that one and thankfully he was claimed and back home with his ower so one happy end. Thank you for the newspaper details I will be on the then and see if they will give it a little space to help. I dont think anyone has asked the RSPCA there so will be on to that as well as the Surrey Advertiser Group. We really want to know this boy is safe somewhere thank you for posting for him/her.There has been a caravans seen there and because of the mange we wonder if they were travellers dogs and they wouldnt mind losing one. The dog warden has been and search but as yet not found any dogs there. Honey the female is slowly making progress with the fostercarer but straight into hiding if anyone visits.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I saw an advert on National Pet register website of a golden retriever dog found in whitchurch-on thames, pangbourne 4/08/06. I know its a bit of a way off but thought it may be useful to check out. Here's the link. http://www.nationalpetregister.org/fpi.php?fp=103 Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thanks Shellyc for your help. We are still trying to find if any vets or anyone has had a dog taken to them. Just maybe someone has picked him up and not said, although he would have been difficult to catch if still able to run. Can anyone in the area tell me the local papers you have and how to contact them. They just might ask for us. Honey as we have called her is doing well in the foster home and beginning to move to other rooms and even the garden if no one looks.or she will rush back into 'her'room. The one she first felt safe in. Her Mange is getting under control and she is getting to know what a treat and a kind hand is. I would just love to know what someone could have done to her to make her this way. She isnt just scared she is absolutly terrified of everything. Thanks everyone for you support.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I have emailed all helpers and organisations in the GU area 200 in total!! Hope this helps and he/she is home soon. I hope the girl thats been found continues to improve in the foster home. Thanks for keeping us informed Scotsmist and keep up the good workxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi. We are still looking for this retriever be it girl or boy and havent had anymore sightings. Even if he is finding food and water the mange will be working its way around his body which must be terrible for him. The bitch was taken back to the vets this morning and had to be carried. She is walking in the house and garden now but still drops as above to noise or sudden movements. The vet is to treat her as much as possible from the foster home so as not to stress her anymore than we have to. Is there anyone that can help with the search even more posters if we have missed a spot, or ask local vets if a dog like this has been seen by them someone just might have picked him up and not told the dog warden. Please help if you can Thank you.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I also feel it is very sad these people chose to dump this beautiful pair of dogs. The bitch is still so frightened but very gentle and sweet and beginning to trust again if you move slowly. Dumping them close to the A272 which is a busy road and such a wide open space couldnt really have been much worst. We are trying all people have suggested to get the other one to show himself but we are wondering how much longer he can survive. There hasnt been any sighting for a week now that we know about. Please keep asking friends and relative in the Midhurst area to keep an eye for him.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Reading the latest on these two dogs make me feel really sick. How on earth could someone be so cruel to innocent animals is beyond me. There is no need for it when there are plenty of places who would have taken them in. By the sound of things they have also been ill-treated in other ways too. Bless them, I hope the other dog is found quickly so they can be cared for accordingly. xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

That is so incredibly sad. If the bitch was in a state when she was found you can only imagine that this poor boy is the same, if not worse by now. I can never comprehend why people do such awful things to dogs when they don't want them anymore. It would be so simple just to hand them in and say they just found them but this seems to be too difficult for them. Why, I just don't get it. So, so desperate for this poor guy to be found safe very soon. We're all thinking of you baby, please show yourself xxxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

We really hoped to have some sightings this weekend but sadly no. It is very hard to think people dump dogs when there are so many places they could leave them as you say. They dont even have to say they are their dogs. Just hand them in for safety. If they had handed these in questions would have been asked because of the state of the girl we have. She had dreadful mange and ribs sticking out and so frighten of every move, ducks should you go towards her quickly or pick up a broom to sweep with. Easy to see they havent been treated kindly. The girl is now standing up and walking when someone is in the room before she sat like her picture and didnt move only at night in the darkness. If anyone is in the area pleas ask dog walkers and horse riders to keep a look out for him. We really pray we find he very soon we are very concerned for his safety now. Thank you for your kind thoughts.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I'd really hoped over the weekend that you'd have got him by now. Poor, poor boy. Why dump them, why not just tie them to the gates of dogs' home in the middle of the night. Because they just couldn't be bothered to go to that much trouble I suppose. Presume they must have been stolen originally. And retrievers are so loving and affectionate. Thinking of everybody trying so hard to help him and hope he shows himself again very soon. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

From experience we know feral dogs tend to roam in a triangular route... so if you can plot on a map the sightings you may well find his trail. Keep looking for watering holes/stables which are the two places they always seem to head for.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thank you very much for the offer of the dog trap. I think the Dog warden has one but I will ask and get back to you if I may please. She has said if they have a sighting so they knew where to put it they would do that,but it is a very big area that runs both sides of the A272. I am hoping if is is cooler this weekend he will move around more and be spotted. We did try the local radio but they dont have enough 'airtime' for lost dog. Thought more people would know about him then. Please everyone in the area pass on the message to anyone to keep an eye out for him.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

What a shame for this poor little one, how can anyone be so evil as to dump them, I do hope he is caught soon......Just a thought and may have already been tried, but what about trying the pee scent of the bitch. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Dog Lost has a dog trap available now - deposit required and you must sign to say you will be with it 24 hrs a day (due to them being expensive and stolen by theives constantly). If it is of use, please let me know. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

What a crying shame for these two young ones. If someone has just dumped them they must be completely heartless - what have the dogs ever done wrong. So sad to think the dog has lost his companion now too, he must be so very scared. I wish I had some pearls of wisdom but I all I can think of is to try looking for him at night and like others have said, keep very calm and very quiet if you see him and lie down or something - he'll be far more likely to approach that way. I really, really hope this poor boy is found soon xxx Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

The picture is of the golden retreiver (female) that was found with this dog. Can anyone in the Stedham/Midhurst area look out for a similar dog please.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

We will try some of the fur from his companion, no owner in sight for their smell sorry to say. Having had a Goldie that is correct about food. It is hard knowing where to put food down though it is a vast area, but we will try the spot where the Dog Wardens saved the bitch. They have put up posters and asked horse riders and dog walkers in the area to watch for him, and we had a possible sighting earlier this week. But if he is as nervous as the bitch he will probably only move during the darker hours. She just stayed right down and didnt move when anyone was around. Moving only at night in the kennel to eat etc. What has happened to them to make them this fearful we would like to know.Thank youLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Put some pilchards down in area of last sighting or where the other dog was found. Nothing better to draw him in and keep him there. Perhaps put some of owners smell (urine is good)or fur from doggie companion for him to recognise. If you see him, lie down and whimper, his curiosity will bring him to you. Dont chase him. Good luckLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thank you all for your wishes and help. The Goldie was last seen on the Stedham side of Midhurst. The bitch was picked up there unable to move due to brambles. We dont know if he has crossed the A272 the last sighting was last weekend. We are extremely worried for him due to the terrible condition of the bitch. 'He' maybe another bitch as no one has been close enough to be a 100% sure. He/she was heard calling for the one we have and we tried taking her there but it didnt work. It is believed this pair were dumped.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I hope this dog is reunited with his owner soon. What a shame - he'll be very confused and scared - like seh said, trick is to stay calm and hopefully that will calm him down. Hope to see this one in blue soon xxxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Oh dear. Poor laddie, not only lost but now without his companion. I hope you get him soon, and remember the singing trick to show the dog you're relaxed and happy and he's not in trouble. And food. Apparently 95% of retrievers will do anything for food. Fingers crossed for him.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
