I would poster around the are she went missing. Post flyers through door too. Ask around; you never know . It`s a small world. Post in shops; post offices too. Hand out as many posters as you can; where, and when you can. Post in National newspaper too. In can she has been taken. Make her "TOO HOT TO HANDLE". Paws, and fingers xd.

I've just been down Oxford Street today - there were TWO Romanian ladies playing accordion at separate spots, each with a chow same colour as this, each dog having to wear a union jack and reflective sunglasses. I saw RSPCA rescue 2 St Bernards (on Dog Rescuers) a few years ago - they went and looked at them to see if they were OK and decided they were being kept out in the heat and not cared for properly and took them. Fairly sure they would think these weren't being best looked after either, if they went and inspected them. I wish they would take some action. Comforting though, that one of the dogs was leaning affectionately on its "owner"'s legs while she played and seemed quite relaxed.
JANJAN
Thank you botaniq I am aware of this chow , sadly not Lexi .. I think it's sad that they use the chow to beg money . They travel around and have also been seen on the south coast . Bless you for caring about Lexi xx

Hi, I know the chances are tiny and I will most likely look like a racist... But I've seen a chow chow yesterday on Oxford Street in London. The dog was with a romanian looking busker playing the accordeon, and may as well have been hers. But the doggy was quite edgy and was constantly looking for someone in the crowd. RSPCA said they can't quite investigate or check the dog's microchip, unless the dog is harmed. But just in case you pass by there, could it be your stolen girl?Last edited: 2018-05-18 09:57:32 by botaniq

Sadly it looks like I will be seeing the 4th anniversary of Lexi missing 12/05/14 as her still missing . I would so love this anniversary to be the day she comes home . I feel I have done everything to find her to no avail . My common sense says she has crossed rainbow bridge as I don't see how she has never been scanned at a vets in the 4 years of her being missing ? I always suspected that she may have met her demise very soon after going missing as it was as I'm led to believe it was just after lambing time . The NOT knowing is the worst . Will today , tomorrow or anytime soon be the day I found out what has happened to Lexi ? I try to hold on and be strong in the hope my precious one will be home and meet her little sister . I live in hope to at least KNOW xx
JANJAN
I am aware of this Chow being used for begging ... Moves around the south a lot ... Sadly not Lexi . Thank you so much for caring about Lexi xx

Just seen a chow chow same colour as lexi on Oxford St near bond st station, with a Romany gypsy lady playing an accordion. Thought this was rather an expensive breed for a beggar to have. She had put sunglasses on the dog. Sorry I couldn’t see if it was male or female as it was sat down.

I saw a chow chow in Durrington, Wiltshire, on Friday afternoon, being walked down the high St. Sorry but I don't know if male or female, but it is such an unusual dog to see that it catches your eye. Im not always there but I will ask my daughter who lives there to keep her eye open for more sightings.xx

I had a message to say that someone saw a Chow Chow at the Perranporth Christmas market, however they didn't realise the importance until their son said the dog looked like Lexi. I was around that day & didn't see a Chow Chow, however the market went on until late evening. It could have been a visitor to area. I will try to check with owner of Bungle ( Chow Chow), who lives not far away, if she was visiting that day with him. I have passed this info onto Jan.

Just a suggetsion JANJAN, and it was Sarah's use of the Mousehole lights that made me think of it---
People come to Mousehole from the whole of Cornwall to see these famous lights. It is heaving from the switch-on, through Tom Bawcock's Eve, to Christmas.
What about emailing or posting the businesses there to ask if they would display a poster.
The Ship Inn is a good start-
https://www.facebook.com/shipinnmousehole
That is their FB but they also have a website.
If you scroll down on the Ship's FB you'll see a video of Tom Bawcock's Eve and you'll see just how busy it gets here.
Just a thought x

Thanks Baydogs ... It's a fab new poster , Thanks Sarah xx let's hope for my best Christmas pressie ever 💜💜

I think I saw a chow chow on one of the videos of walkwithwalnut on Porth Beach yesterday morning.
Kinsally
I know this is a long shot but I was recently staying near Porth beach in Cornwall & remember seeing a Chow Chow similar to Lexi being walked by a lady a few times up the hill that leads away from Porth beach. I think this road is Porth Way which leads to Porth & Padstow. This might just be a similar dog but I've just seen Lexi's post on here & that she went missing from Bude in Cornwall. The Chow Chow caught my eye as you don't see many about. If anyone is local to that area maybe it's worth keeping an eye out its the TR7 area. Good luck x

JANJAN have you given your story to Mail on Sunday in the last 2 weeks and waiting for it to be printed?

I am waiting and thought you would have been put forward too?

If so, I have sent an email to the editor today to see what's happening.

I hope and pray you get Lexi back soon, it's so hard without them isn't it.

My two were stolen a few weeks after Lexi went missing. xxxx

Have posted on Spotted Torquay re recent sighting in Wellswood , Babbacombe , Ilsham Road , in the hope that they remember the sighting of the Chow in Jacks Waterfront Bar approx 18 months ago .. seen by Hazel Richards ! & can possibly make a connection ... also contacting Vets In the Area , and Vintage Café Ilsham Road to hope of details .. have to be realistic that It may be a visiting holiday maker but worth a try !! so need my little one home
JANJAN
Thank you all for caring about my Lexi ... I follow through with all comments and Chow sightings that are posted ... Get lots of Facebook comments again all of which are followed through ... Will keep you all updated with any info that I come across ... One day ... I so hope Lexi will be home . Big hugs to you all 💋💋💋

A male red chow called Robbie was recently re-homed by Gables Cats & Dogs home in Plymouth.
It couldn't have been Lexie as it was male but may account for a new adult chow in the area.
DogLostGeoffA - Area Volunteer, Cornwall, Scotland & Northumberland
Jayne, JANJAN - would it be worth revisiting the posts and comments still on the Spotted Torquay fb page re the Chow Chow sighted in Torquay December 2014 and mentioned again on the anniversary in December 2015 (search for Chow on the page and the posts pop up). There are comments about known Chow Chows in the area- the names could be good people to tag about the most recent sighting in Babbacombe.

There is a chow on the Leeds found Facebook page, found in Methley. Doesn't say which sex and that microchip details are out of date but may be worth a look - there is a photo

By a very weird co-incidence...and we believe in these dont we ladies? the sighter was born in Crackington...where lexi went missing from!

If money could buy Lexi home she would be home now ... Paul and me offered £1000 days after Lexi went missing . NO Lexi ! After months of no news but 100,s of people caring and sharing , we had a Devine ! offer of another £1000 from T A (you know who you are ) ... Still no Lexi 😥 25 months on i despair , still no Lexi .... If money was the answer to getting Lexi home I just know she would be back here playing with Kona . The support she has is amazing and I'm sure money would not be the reason she is not YET home .. I still in my heart of hearts think she has gone to rainbow bridge , you cannot hide a Chow for this long ! Gut instinct as time goes on . Just to know would be an immense relief and end this dreadful , painful time in our lives .... Please I beg for news to end our pain . You can contact numerous groups anonymously if you prefer . Please !!Last edited: 2016-06-26 16:03:34 by JANJAN

Hi Jan. I'm still quietly keeping my eyes peeled for your girl, as I suspect many others are too. I added a comment about this the other night - when the website crashed- and it appears not to have been posted.

This is an extremely long shot but would you take a peek at the dogs at Birkenhead Kennels,(98438) particularly second from the right, top row. Is that a chow? It is hard to tell...and I cannot read the name underneath to see if it sounded male or female. I've tried to find this dog elsewhere as it says "Various breeds and locations" but haven't managed to do so.

Hope you are feeling a bit better lately xLast edited: 2016-02-12 11:13:48 by Baydogs

I was reminded that tomorrow 29/12 was the sighting of a Lexie lookalike outside Jacks Waterfront Bar in Torquay ....sadly the CCTV was apparently too poor quality to say if the Chow was Lexi . In case this group revisit Torquay over new year is it worth bumping her and alerting volunteers in the area/visiting to look out for this Chow . The lady ,Hazel who alerted us this time last year was very sure that the Chow sighted was Lexi .... Do they visit Torquay every New Year ? Please look out for Lexi ...

Oh my days ... Joined animal search.co.uk ...This is their match to LEXI .....Hello Jan

There is 1 new potential match with your dog you lost on Mon 12th May 2014 which has been reported to us since we were last in touch.

COLOUR MATCHING - PLEASE NOTE
Our website does NOT take colour into account when providing matches for you. Read on to find out why.

WHY IS THIS?
We are working to make the site more intelligent so that it provided the best possible matches first then ranks them according to whether the colours match in any order. This development will cost us a significant amount of money so please bear with us. It's better to match cat with cat, dog with dog etc. like we do at the moment rather than miss a potential match because one party puts chocolate coloured and the other puts brown.

PERFORM A MANUAL SEARCH IF YOU WISH
If some of the pets below are obviously not the one you lost. - Please bear with us our matching criteria are deliberately broad, to maximise the chances of finding a match - You can perform more targeted searches for specific characteristics at any time manually here .

We know at the moment it's not perfect, we working hard to make sure that it is as quickly as we can with the limited funds we raise from donations and our Missing Pet Search Team work. Please consider helping us by making a voluntary donation if you haven't already done so. Thank you.

Here is a summary of their details, you can click on the links for full details of each pet, and also to contact the finder if you think the dog that you have lost may be theirs.

If you feel you are getting too many or too few matches by e-mail, you can log in to the website , and alter the "search radius" you would like us to use for this pet (you have currently opted to receive alerts of pets lost within 100 miles of Cornwall, United Kingdom, EX23 0JG).

I'm so sorry to hear you're not well JANJAN. Really feel for you. Hope life starts to improve soon xxxx
Shared your calendar to local vets etc. Always looking out for her xx
JANJAN
We are a group of long time missing/stolen dog owners that have joined together to offer each other support we have become very friendly as we are in the same boat and devastated having tried everything in our power to get our dogs home some days we have to rely on each other to get through the despair and turmoil we face. We have tried to make our dogs as high profile as possible via use of social media but we have been racking our brains as to how to take this further whilst also raising awareness of dog theft, the devastating impact this crime has on families, and look at compliance in laws surrounding stray dogs. During our discussions we decided to produce a charity calendar called Missing Dogs I Call Your Name. in an attempt to spread the word and get our dogs everywhere including Vets Surgeries and Police Station we want to help as many dog charities as possible starting with Harvey's Army who do a fantastic job with their voluntary scanning of live and deceased dogs. We plan on selling these calendars which are non profit making at £5 each which includes a £1 donation from each sale to various. Dog charities / rescues. . We are a very committed bunch of devastated dog owners who want to get our missing dogs calendar out there in vets police stations etc and we need your help. Please please please would you consider including us on your show to launch this calendar and show the British public who are meant to be a nation of animal lovers how far we are prepared to go to get our fur babies home . Please will you help us? Kind Regards Missing Dogs I Call Your Name; Julie Evans (Hansum) Nicola Cree (Bragi) Val Nield (Archie) Mandy Holder (Kiki) Tracy Davis (Lady) Nicola Walters ( Conker) June McAleese (Amy) Jackie Veal (Poppy) Jan Jurczuk (Lexi) Sam Causer (Buster) Caroline Key (Rags) Dawn Purvis (Izzy)

Lesley (ID84584)
Hope you can use the contact I gave you on FB for photo manipulation ...
Just a suggestion but what about a new take on posters:
Stray Dog headline to fit with an image of a matted dirty lexi. the brain will think in an alternative way.

if people read 'Missing' with a fluffy Lexi the brain will expect to see afluffy dog. if they read the date but still see a photo of a fluffy lexi the brain will tell them to look for a fluffy Lexi. if you add 'stolen' with a fluffy lexi then everyone sees a fluffy chow being walked on a lead. But what if she is a stray? She may have been seen but people have not associated this matted dog with the fluffy Lexi in the posters, hence the new angle.

I think it worth a try. the thing is, if she was stolen but escaped she is probably people scared. I am not saying scared of her owners but would be apprehensive and if her location is found, the owners would need to gain her trust. Time.

I think a new angle wort a go.
JANJAN
Thanks Ellie .. Just checked it out online ... Sadly it's NOT Lexi ... Bless you for caring xx
Ellie
There is a dog just like this one on the Hive.com advert!?
JANJAN
Bideford Chow ( a Male ) now reunited
Lesley (ID84584)
I left this on FB and has been received:

You know, if Lexi was stolen but escaped she would have bolted in fear and living rough. Can you find someone to manipulate her photo to a Lexi looking matted with fur clingy to her? Run this alongside her fluffy photo. People will 'look' for a chow in this picture and may not register with the dog they see at a distance as Lexi if she is looking more like an outdoor stray, matted, unkempt. And perhaps she hides because scared.
Not on FB:
I would like to add too that if a new image is created to run alongside fluffy Lexi, that may be a new poster campaign started at perhaps remote pubs - there will always be someone (local or visitor) that won't know about Lexi. Perhaps try around villages surrounding CH? Those quieter spots. Someone may have seen a matted dog and if they had seen the fluffy Lexi poster may not have registered the same dog, or if a dog at all. Or maybe they are in an area where there are no posters.

Just a thought x Last edited: 2015-10-05 13:55:47 by Lesley (ID84584)

Just had a link .....There is a report of a Chow wandering around the Torrington Lane area of East the Water, Bideford on the public group Items For Sale In Bideford Better by Rach-louise Llewellyn.
CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE ???
DogLostBobble - Area Co-ordinator, East Devon temp covering East Sussex
So sorry the Bideford dog wasn't Lexi.

Someone, somewhere must know something. Please come forward if you do.
Rose
Is it worth trying national newspapers again as its been so long now. Someone must know something, a neighbour getting a doggy like this a little after Lexi went missing. There cannot be many of this breed about. If u bought a doggy like this in good faith surely you would get her m/chip details updated and this has not happened. x

Hi. I posted ages ago on fb about a foreign lady having a chow up Devonport park Plymouth well they were up the park yesterday and we saw them again today. They didn't want to say much the dog is call leecie and they say shes 4 1/2 years old . We do have a pic but its not very clear the sun was shining brightly and the dog was plodding along behind was hard to take a picture without them knowing what we were doing. They arrive to the park in a black cab so he must be a taxi driver. Very distinct as he had long hair. Xx

Bless you Seeks ... xxxxx

You hang in there my friend and know we (Pup's lot) will keep looking and wont ever desert you for as long as you need.

I live in Greenock in Scotland and I know it's a bit of a long shot but there has been a chow straying up here for a year or more and i know from one of their officers the SPCA have tried to catch it and failed, I myself tried to get a pic but could not get close enough before the dog ran off. I have seen this dog on many occasions roaming around and it is obviously wary of people. I did report this sighting to one of the phone numbers on the poster after seeing the poster on Facebook, that was at least a couple of months ago.Last edited: 2015-07-12 21:18:26 by rosie

One year on from the day Lexi went missing which is so sad. I totally appreciate you want closure, but with respect, is it now time to perhaps bring in another little life to share. I so feel a puppy Chow might help heal the wound you clearly and quite understandably still have. Not to replace her, but to help you .... you might still find Lexi, in which case you'll have two to love. I just know I'd not be able to continue to live without a dog around?Last edited: 2015-05-18 11:27:04 by MamaBas

She didn't want me to take a photo of her dog but let me know that her chow was 8 years old and she has all the relevant paperwork for her. I just needed to reassure you that the Helston chow can definitely be eliminated

Well the Easter holidays are here !! Whilst you are out and about could I ask that you please look out for Lexi .. she has been missing now for nearly 11 months .. We really do miss her so badly .. The REWARD is in place , ample enough to buy your very own puppy ! Please let us have Lexi home ... My birthday is over the holiday time , wouldn't that be the bestest present anyone could have ?? PLEASE xx
lhasagirl
The Chow advertised on Pets 4 homes in Crawley has been checked and is MALE , thanks for bringing to our attention.

Possible sighting of red chow in GROVE GREEN , MAIDSTONE , KENT, today 27th March 2015, being walked by elderly man. Slim guy / grey hair. aged 60 - 70 yrs walked up by the Studios and took a short cut down an alley way to GROVE GREEN. May / may not be Lexie but needs following up please. Apparently didn't seem as fluffy as Lexie but may have been clipped for whatever reason .Anyone in that area that could follow this up ? Thank you.Last edited: 2015-03-27 20:51:43 by lhasagirl

Please can I ask that any of Lexi's followers print off her poster and display in their local area ... Vets, Schools , Supermarkets , Car parks , Bus stops , railway stations , local shops , Ask your Postman/ Postwoman to help , Your own cars !! please help to find Lexi and bring her home ..... thank you x

Hi Fergals thank you. Yes I have seen this ... Scary that an owner is seen to be deliberately pushing the head , hate that sadly not Lexi but thanks for caring ... Please keep looking for our little one xxxxx

Jan, you have probably already checked this one but adding it just in case. Seems odd how they are pushing the hair over the face in two photos.

Sadly Kit'sMum .. The people who think they saw Lexi were just walkers on the coastal path & sadly cannot be contacted .. we still have No positive leads . We are gutted that we have no info to go on ... We just need help PLEASE xxx
Kit'sMum
I think it might be worth back-pedalling too. In the posting by Red Alert on 29/08/14 "someone said that they had seen her". It might be worth going back to this person to see exactly what they saw. And I amm wondering about a Chinese connection, because I believe this breed is well-known in China and Chinese people have been mentioned on this page in connection with Lexie. Sharing on FB now.

Hi Claire ,, Hi Bobble, well an amazing reaction to Lexi's new video .... Thank you again Claire for your brilliant interpretation of Lexi's up to now status .. you have captured the esscence of our life with her from 8 weeks of age until 5+ years when sadly she disappeared from our lives.. we will never , ever be able to come to terms with that sad day 12/05/14 . We have up to now tried in vain to find her .. with the amazing support of many , many friends from around the globe and I promise you she is well known. Sadly no further forward now than then ... totally gutted but I believe I/ we have done as much as any human beings can do to locate there missing one , and will continue to do whatever we can to find Lexi ... Our little sugarlump , just know we have tried our hardest to find you & you remain forever ours ... I / we will always try to find you ! Stay safe sweetheart

Well , we made it to Crufts on Sunday & met loads of peeps who were aware of Lexi and that she is still missing for what is now 10 months ... probably the worst 10 months ever ! people were so , so nice to us and made positive comments to us NOT to give up the search for Lexi . They believe as we do that someone must know something of Lexi's whereabouts and that hopefully it will just be a matter of time ( not too long we hope )and of course that because we Micro chipped her too that that will help bring her back home to us . paws are crossed here ! what a fantastic Mother's day gift that would be for me .. Please help us to find her x

COPIED FROM FACEBOOK POST X

4 March at 14:27
At 7.35am this morning (4th March 2015) as I was coming from Newport Bridge way, I spotted two small dogs mooching around Riverside Park Road roundabout. looking a dirty and lost bless them. One dog a typical dark ginger cloloured Chow Chow and the other looked to be a white/grey shih tzu, west highland terrier or pomeranian. Didn't look like an owner/dog walker was with them. I didn't get a detailed look at them as I was driving. Thought I would communicate this sighting, of course to go through moderation and editing if needed.

I am sorry to see this happening on Lexi's page as I find it upsetting , after all we should all be working constructively together to help find Lexi please x
Scoobydoo
I agree Jayne....but when a helper accuses someone of plundering a person's profile...it is way out of order and needs to be removed from doglost....and as for comment I need to ask that someone...I have asked mamabas on here for all to see. If this continues...I will no longer remain active on here.

Fergal's I do not have a clue what you are accusing me of...as I have done nothing wrong and I would suggest you get your facts right before accusing me of doing something I have not done....I have not plundered any persons profile and what you are doing is slander and I have never asked for your help for anything. I have also taken a screenshot of your post before you have now edited.Last edited: 2015-03-01 20:05:05 by Scoobydoo

Then ask that someone! Not plunder some random person's profile, and post links to all and sundry! Apparently, because lhasagirl joined a breed lovers group and found someone who happens to live in the area, this MUST be one and the same individual??? As I said to her, when asked for my help - I do not know either of them, and do not agree with these methods. I am well aware of facebook rules, it is the irresponsibility of these actions I find disturbing. I will not be taking up any more space on Lexi's page with this argument.Last edited: 2015-03-01 15:30:15 by Fergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall

When facebook changed their rules...it included that all photos become property of facebook and can be shared by their users if not copyright protected on the picture or photo by a watermark..this is why members of facebook have the right to make their profiles private....if someone keeps saying you should go back to point of loss,then anyone would like to know why.Last edited: 2015-03-01 14:18:07 by Scoobydoo

For the record, I do not agree with you lhasagirl. Or the way you have gone about posting personal details of someone on local public facebook pages, with silly cryptic comments added. I have tried to reason with you but you have blocked me. We do not need a witch hunt. Thank you for removing your posts.
DogLostFergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Many people make observations on Doglost pages, express opinions, and try to help the best way they can. Long term missing is a heartbreaking situation and unbearably wearing - it hurts like hell. Please lets not allow paranoia to slip onto Lexi's page. I am local and having been through the nightmare myself (albeit a lot less time) I know there are a lot of other locals willing to go that extra mile. It is the least I can do to return that favour. MammaBas, I have searched many times with my dog over these months. In fact it was one of my posters that you first saw at the Golf Course gate. Please call me (admin have my number). Fergal has died and I no longer walk much, but will be happy to join you or anyone else to keep up the momentum here for Lexi.

lhasagirl
Upon looking at an earlier comment of yours mamabas I have to disagree with you that it is unlikely that Lexie would have been taken by someone as she is not a puppy. It is just as viable for someone to steal lexie thinking that they could breed from her and make some fast money little knowing at the time that she had been spayed
lhasagirl
As you no doubt know I am very heavily involved in helping Jan and her husband find their missing dog, So please instead of posting cryptic comments why not either call Jan direct or myself - 07903619757 and really tell us what you know. We both fully understand the situation with any farmer a that time of year and that it could very awkward for you to name the farmer direct on here or on face book, this is why I suggest you give either one of us a call and discuss whatever information you can give us in confidence, it is time to come forward and speak to us direct. It has been 9 months now since the fateful day, Would you not want to know just what information someone had that could help get your dog found whatever the situation. So come one lets stop playing games and lets get this sorted once and for all. It is difficult for Jan and her hubby to keep coming back down to Cornwall so we need someone living there to give us their help. Both Jan and I await your call. Thank you
JANJAN






MamaBas I would be more than interested in you airing what you think happened to Lexie and what you think the farmers involvement could be. This may give us some clues! If you can help please feel free to contact me direct xxx

Mamabas I have re -read your last comment but can't understand why you keep saying " rather than chasing shadows" and that Lexie may be happy with those who have her. I honestly can't see anyone in the area having her all this time and her not having been seen. Unless you know different? I pick up from your words that you are animal lover and that you want some "closure " not sure what you mean?
lhasagirl
I must say I agree Scoobydoo. You do seem to dwell on the " den" and the "farmer " surely the search need to move from the area this dog went missing as by now she could be anywhere, That's my opinion. Last edited: 2015-01-31 18:58:25 by lhasagirl

Mamabas..everyone is entitled to an opinion but more often than not some views we keep to ourselves...you mention this farmer,why would you think lexi may be around near the farm,apart from the fur and the den been in the area? X

DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
Point taken BUT Owners need to know...and as we have seen will not rest until they do know so any continued sharing is appreciated and is working...we get lots of possible matches coming in which must be so heart breaking for the dedicated owners who check out everything...Even if the dog is happy...they are not and no one has the right to keep someone elses dog.
MamaBas
Scoobyd - It was not my intention to cause offence (I note my recent post has been 'amended' !)but I am a realist and again PERHAPS, rather than race around chasing shadows (?), maybe it's now time to step back and reassess. And of course her owners want her back, who wouldn't, but equally IF she's been with somebody now since she first went missing, perhaps she's now made the adjustment and is 'happy'? Just my view fwiw. It goes without saying that at the very least, I pray her owners have closure. Last edited: 2015-01-30 12:56:04 by MamaBas
Scoobydoo
MamaBas all these questions have been looked at and the point is lexi is still missing. People need to share lexi as far as possible as someone knows where lexi is...that person may not have Internet but know someone who does. Lexi's owner just wants lexi back home...no questions asked. Lexi should be with her owners and not a complete stranger and as the law states a found dog should be reported to the local warden. XLast edited: 2015-01-29 18:33:55 by Scoobydoo

MamaBas
I'm wondering whether now is the time to 'revisit' exactly what happened on the day she went missing? The undergrowth has now died down so might going back to the 'den' could be worth considering. I'm also, looking back at the start of all this, wondering whether the fact that farmer put his cattle into a field, preventing leaving food out (why?) was significant and again, worth looking into further. What would make Lexi take off? Was she in the habit of doing this? Would anybody REALLY grab her? And if so, why? People tend to take puppies, whether by order, or for ransom. Thinking about the dog.

I realise you are concentrating your efforts in the Torbay area but just to make you aware that there are currently a few red chow chow bitches advertised on pets4homes website. Just have a check of them please to cancel the possibility out.
Twitter is read by lots of people so by Kym Marsh retweeting to a total of 500000 people that's great news as they will also pass the message on to their friends etc and so it snowballs so that it becomes common knowledge. Here's hoping it helps.

A lovely young lady Chelsea Murphy contacted me today and asked if she could do twitter for Lexi ! I told her that I didn't do twitter and she said I didn't need to , she would do it for me . Well she is keeping me updated and my niece is too ! Apparently Kym Marsh from Corrie has retweeted to 500000 whatever all that means lol ! I can't follow as I have no twitter account ? It is @findlexi_ Chelsea is hoping to go viral

I have spoken to Jan, she has been told to ring the bar again tomorrow & speak to the owner with a view to making sure the cctv footage is saved. The staff there at the moment are aware of Lexi & will keep an eye out. The police are also aware that cctv footage is in existence. (Hopefully they will be able to get hold of it & copy it so Jan can check it) Good Luck.

Bobble ... I spoke with police yesterday and was advised to email the neighbourhood team which I have done , no reply as yet . As this was only a " possible " sighting of a Chow & not positively Lexi it will be up to them if they follow up my request to check details ! As you can see from the comment below from Chuffa Chicken , once a chow is seen it is potentially Lexi . Hopefully one of these sightngs will be Lexi & we will get her home . Thanks again for all of your help & I will try to keep calm & carry on ! B R E A T H E ... MARTIN 5252 thanks for message , I have looked at the advert & it's NOT Lexi but thank you for caring x

Never seen a Chow before and saw one on Sunday 28/12/14 at Saunton Sands, North Devon about 3.30 pm with 2 girls walking it towards the beach across the dunes. It wasn't til I returned home to Oxfordshire today that I thought about Lexi and wondered, just maybe. But I'm afraid I have no pics and although I stroked the dogs and the girls were very friendly I have no idea if the Chow was male or female. Not much use I know but it definitely was a striking looking dog and looked very much like the pics of Lexi.
JANJAN
Zennie's Mum I am sure that most dog owners would not feel hounded if they thought they could help eliminate their dog being Lexi .... and would hope they were never in the same position of having their dog missing .. we are waiting to see if the Chow can be identified .. Thanks from me Lexi's Mum x
Zennie'sMum
I posted this on Spotted Torquay a little earlier this evening. People have already come back saying that there is a male Chow in the Torbay area, but also a female that is not KC registered. I would hate the poor owner to be hounded if it genuinely is his dog, but could this be Lexi?

I have just left the bar having spoken to the manager ....she did not see anything herself but the staff on duty yesterday are not in until later today. They do have CCTV but say this is something only the police can look at :(
I have left my details as well as mobile on this page along with website details. I have ask if bar staff would call me, no matter how insignificant they feel the info appears. Please be vigilant if you are in the area....they could have been visiting Torquay for the Sunday but even so, there's a strong possibility they will revisit xx

JANJAN
MamaBas Thank you for your concern .. I agree That the last 8 months have probably been the most stressful in all my 60 years but it is also strangely what I need to do .. I feel that by actively keeping the search for Lexi going it somehow helps day to day ,, we are deciding whether or not to have another Chow puppy , not ever to replace Lexi ( that could never happen ) but to have a little one for Lexi to love & play with when she comes home xxxxxx
MamaBas
Jan. I know you don't want to consider this (I've suggested this before) but I am concerned about what this is doing to you mentally Of course you need and deserve closure, but surely having to react to all these false trails, can't be easy. So, without shutting the door on getting Lexi back, why not start a project to bring a new little life into your lives in the Spring. If Lexi is found, that doesn't mean she can't come back, but again I am concerned about your overall health with all this. With respect.
JANJAN
The possible sighting of similar dog has been ruled out as being Lexi ! also possible sighting of Lexi in Oxford Street London seen with man collecting for RSPCA has also been ruled out ... Again the search goes on .. But it does prove that sharing on Facebook is alerting people to Lexi being missing & any Chow Chow being seen is potentially Lexi ... So please keep looking & KEEP SHARING xxx Thank you

Not a great worded advert, in Birmingham. There is also another advert showing photos reason for sale now has three children and no time etc, worth a look at least.
On the subject of Elstree I think Harry Potter world nearby huge car park maybe worth asking about pestering or leaflets on counters to make people aware. On another website there is however a breeder of chows mentioned near that area so maybe it's one of hers that's been seen. Hope all this info helps anyway.

The Village Hotel is Elstree not Borehamwood. (And to be precise it's on the business park built on the old Aldenham Bus works adjacent to the A41.) It's isolated from the village itself and not really dog-walking territory because of it's proximity to the M1 and A41. Nevertheless I'll get the message out to some dog walkers and to Lesley the dog warden

If you see a 'found' Chow Chow anywhere in the country please check it out, it could well be Lexi. She could be anywhere by now, specially as she went missing in a holiday area, someone finding her could have taken her home with them, so don't just check Chows in the Cornwall area. Good luck.

I've just looked at the one on Preloved JeanT, at first I thought it didn't resemble Lexi but she looks like she's been clipped fairly recently and her coat is growing out. Worth a look JanJan. Very odd that she wouldn't know whether she was spayed or not since she's had her for a few years, hmmm.
JeanT
There's a red bitch for sale on Preloved, £500. They don't know if she is spayed or not, as she came from a friend. This is in the Bolton area. I don't think we've seen this one before. xx
Red Alert
Mamabas your questions are ours too, despite media coverage (again in this weeks Cornish Guardian) radio pleas, posters, searching and anything else that can be tried we may have to wait until Lexie is scanned. In terms of value, she would be valuable as a breeding dog however if she has been taken by the finder they will wait a long time as she is spayed! Equally Lexie is a valuable pet as she is a lovely dog. The final link just may be her microchip Last edited: 2014-08-30 09:03:29 by Red Alert
MamaBas
Thank you from me too Red Alert - it seems Lexie had been there long enough to start to learn the area a little - so had she just taken off, for whatever reason? she might have been able to find her way back to where her owners were? Reading what you say, it would appear to be a complete mystery and perhaps points more to her attaching herself to some walkers passing along the paths, for some reason and waking with them perhaps towards Bude here, or even in the opposite direction? But what about that 'den'? That was odd too because unless that's a significant distance away from the cottage, why wouldn't she try to find her way back to her owners (again)? Or perhaps the den had nothing to do with Lexie at all? This does rather point to stealing (why) or maybe some tragic accident. The coastal paths here are not the safest places. I will continue to keep a look out in and around Bude and of course, every good thought that even yet, she may be found/returned to her owners. Again closure is needed!Last edited: 2014-08-30 08:43:56 by MamaBas

Hi Mamabas, On the 12th May Lexie was with Jan and Paul at the holiday cottage in Crackington Haven. They had been there 2 days and had walked Lexie out on her harness to various places in Crackington Haven. On the 12th May Lexie was in the front area of the cottage in full view of her owner, he went inside to pick up her harness (minutes) and on his return Lexie had disappeared. Jan and Paul searched everywhere frantically asking people if she had been seen. At the top of the footpath, which is at the side of the cottage, someone said that they had seen her. This was not however confirmed by anyone else and as it was a busy period, this is very confusing. Due to this sighting the path behind/above the cottage was concentrated on. This has dense undergrowth and is difficult terrain. There are lots of walkers covering the coastal path towards Widemouth Bay and Bude. Jan reported Lexie missing on the Monday 12th May and as I was away did not pick this up until the Thursday. When i asked Jan if she had been given a dog id by the Dog Warden she told me she had not received anything. She rang again and was told this wasn't necessary as they were aware that Lexie was missing. We were therefore horrified to find out that in fact Lexie had not been registered formally as missing and this was then completed by the manager of the Dog Welfare Service. Over following days and weeks we and others searched the area. There are many posters in the area and as a close community many are aware that Lexie is missing. There have been no sighting since this date. The National Trust who own the land have rangers that travel throughout this area but she has not been seen. Local farmers, campsites, shops, postmen, delivery drivers were also made aware. Bude is quite a way from Crackington Haven but it is another area that tourists visit when visiting North Cornwall and local people also visit Crackington Haven as its a dog friendly beach in a cove. Jan, Paul, myself have revisited what happened that day many times and there are no answers. I decided to write this as I know how painful it is for Jan, more so because that missing link is still missing and so is Lexie. Frustration and trying everything possible has included the bus shelters at Bude because this is where the company advertise and is as near to Crackington as we could get x
JANJAN
Just heard from the man who sighted the dog in the park ! He and his family have been back to Brockwell park today armed with leads & food but sadly have not seen the dog anywhere. Can only hope that the dog in question will be seen again & helped whether it is Lexi or not . We are so desperate for Lexi to be found ! Thank you all for helping & sharing .x

MamaBas
I've been thinking about this whole situation with where Lexie might be after such a long time, and I think it's time to revisit the start of all this. I realise you are stuck on Bude, but even going across the fields or coastal path, Bude is still a significant distance from Crackington Haven so why would she have headed off in this direction? Was she in the habit of running off, from your permanent residence? What would have taken her away from where you were, other than to be stolen. But why would anybody necessarily steal her? She's not a puppy and so would have limited appeal to anybody just passing? If you got back to basics with all this, it might help you (and me to be honest) understand more about what might have kicked all this off, and so lead to where she could still be?

Clearly you need closure but it's all too easy to start running up blind alleys when perhaps the answer is there - right back where it started?Last edited: 2014-08-29 16:43:25 by MamaBas

I was in Plymouth today and saw a woman with two chows. I went over and secretly checked out the chow for black hairs in tail and just chatted with her about dogs generally. I then asked if she'd heard of a missing chow and she hadn't so I gave her the details. She had two (one much darker - almost chocolate) but the one the same colour as Lexie was very clearly a male, so not Lexie but at least someone else in the 'chow' world is now aware and has their eyes open for any 'new' dogs about.

I can confirm that the National Trust Rangers,that are responsible for the land, have been informed. In addition I have spoken to the tenant farmer who farms it, a local farmer has also spoken to the son of the tenant farmer in the area Lexie went missing. They have confirmed that they are aware of Lexie missing but have no other information. This is a community that is very aware of anything unusual/different and word would spread very quickly if there was information regarding Lexie. Two days ago I also spoke to the farmers wife just above where Lexie went missing, she told me that they were all at a lose as there have been no sightings. She did tell me however that some years back her own dog went missing which sadly has never been found. The area Lexie she went missing from is dense bracken, making searching extreemly hard, as the seasons change it will become easier to search. The area has a massive amount of walking/tourist visitors that use the coastal path and surrounding area. We need now to think 'outside the box' looking at old wells, there are no shafts, and generally regenerating interest to continue the search. Last edited: 2014-08-24 13:56:12 by Red Alert

Came over all hopeful when I saw she'd been bumped. Geat idea to revist the area where the original nest was found. Also speak to people and try and establish who is leaving food out for hedgehogs or badgers. Also, anyone had their bins knocked over and rumaged through? I know its going over old ground, but time feels right to be revisiting these places. Remember she may well have lost a lot of weight and at a quick glance may even be mistaken for a fox at a distance. You're doing great Jan and we are all rooting for you and Lexi.

Hi... I saw a Chow as I was driving to work through Highbridge in Somerset a couple of days ago. I have never seen it before although I do not live close enough to notice when it arrived in the area. Thought it was worth a mention anyway. The dog was with a Chinese lady I think, on the main road through the town near Lakeside. There is a Chinese takeaway in the town I think so she may work there?? Good luck finding Lexi

Sorry, of course they're shut until 2 September.

Thanks Tiana . Are the schools closed at the moment for summer break ? I can send to the schools when they re-open ... Do you know when they go back please ?
Tiana
Dear JanJan, met some ladies from the school nearby in Delabole (12 miles south of CH) and they weren't aware of Lexie. Suggest you email some posters to them to share with the parents/staff, may help keep awareness high down here. In fact you could consider notifying all the schools in a 20 mile radius?
Good luck.
MamaBas
As I suggested before, YES, this search needs to come back to Crackington Haven. And I think you need to contact the farmer on whose land the original 'den' was found especially. Bournemouth was most probably a red herring although it's odd this person and Chow have vanished? I'd suggest, sadly that there is a farmer down here who knows what happened to her. It was LAMBING time when she went missing and farmers don't hesitate to deal with dogs if they see them on their land with livestock around. I hope this isn't the case, but at least you need to know, whatever the outcome.

Jan, My gut feeling is Cornwall too. Revist the farms and good people around Crackington Haven, Rosecare, St Ginny's and so on. If she is still loose, she will be in survival mode and coming out at night. Who is leaving food out for Badgers or cats?
JANJAN
So many viewings of Lexis page ? Please bring your search back to Cornwall! My gut feeling is in Cornwall ? Please keep sharing Lexi we are sure someone knows !!

Talk to local posties - both in Crackington H. (which you probably have already done) and now in Bournemouth because they know where all the dogs are, and where new ones arrive. I do think the Bournemouth idea is a false trail sadly much as it would be nice to be able to locate this man if only to rule this possibility out. Again next time you are down here, talk to the local people about this Bournemouth connection - these are close communities and usually everybody knows everybody else's business!!
Also vets in and around Bournemouth - eventually dogs do need vets!Last edited: 2014-07-31 09:53:23 by MamaBas

It is the only home I have known for 5 years & I want to be back there cuz I love them & they love me .. PLEASE , PLEASE let me go home xxxx

I think there's a possibility that Lexie could be hidden by someone in the holiday area, though you'd think close neighbours would notice or hear her in a garden.A bit of a strange thing to do, I know. We'd notice because we're interested in dogs and cats but some of our other neighbours wouldn't. Or, someone on holiday at that time could have taken her home with them. But to where?
MamaBas
I agree Jean, considering this Chow was being seen a lot ... if the guy is 'foreign' he may have his own reasons for not wanting to be approached!! I still think it might be worth investigating around Crackington Haven to see if anybody knows of someone (like this man?) with a connection to Bournemouth. IF Lexi was picked up (by him?) he'd have had to be down here ...?
JeanT
Have there been no more sightings of the dog in Bournemouth? It is a bit suspicious if it has disappeared completely after all the discussion on here.
JANJAN
Thank you for all help offered sadly to our knowledge there is NO positive news on Lexi please if anyone has any information ,, anything , however small please contact us in complete confidence ! Thank you xxx

Myself and my family were going to watch the fireworks in Bournemouth on Friday 18th July. When we were walking into Bournemouth from Durley Chine along the promenade we saw a man with a Chow Chow just outside the amusements by the Oceanarium. I don't know if it's Lexie but Chow Chow's are not a common dog so i felt i had to post this. The very vest of luck finding Lexie
VetsGetScanning
Messaged from a lady in Bournemouth:- I see one but it's fur is light, around the same as in the pic. It's with a foreign guy who seems very genuine. He walks it it Bournemouth Gardens. Various times. Will keep my eyes open. Got a feeling it's male though.

Would recommend that posters put up at entrances to the beaches and perhaps in the beach info and lifeguard stations. The expanse of beach runs from Sandbanks in Poole through to the area where a chow has been seen from Alum Cine, Durley Chine to Bournemouth beach
Also Bournemouth gardens which runs from the main Bournemouth town centre down to Bournemouth beach.
If there is a similar Chow walked in the area hopefully the owner will come forward to let us know
DogLostGnasher - Area Co-ordinator, East Dorset
Not wishing to discount or disappoint that the earlier comment may or may not have been Lexi and am trying to get further info , but have been sent this message......
"I've seen a chow around Bournemouth a few time but I have seen it with the same man since it was a puppy. The mans description is similar to the above. I think my friend took a picture I'll see if she still has it and I can get the date and the image "

Jenny, Durley Chine shows on google as a car park and a beach, the car park has a map with it. This is the link for the beach, also it says there is a permanent RNLI Lifeguard Watchhouse. They would be a good place to start and may help keep a look out for you. http://www.bournemouth-beaches.co.uk/durley-chine-beach.htmlLast edited: 2014-07-23 21:24:27 by Fergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall

Another sighting of a red Chow, again on the prom in Bournemouth on the same Friday night. Reported to me as being walking in the direction towards Durley Chine by a woman (no description) ....
"I honestly don't remember didn't take much notice at the time it was just so unusual to see a chow and the dog was really pulling so much it caught my eye but if it helps it was around 8.15pm walking towards Durley chine xxx "
MamaBas
Going at this from Crackington H. - does anybody down here (Crackington) know of anybody with a connection to Bournemouth who might have picked up Lexi and taken her back there? It might be worth asking around?Last edited: 2014-07-23 07:55:32 by MamaBas

I have spoken to the chap who saw a Chow Chow in Bournemouth last Friday. He was with his own dog (a Husky) which went over to the Chow & was being friendly. However the man with the Chow didn't want to chat & pulled the dog away, he was later seen chatting to other people down on the pier. It was the next day when a friend pointed out Lexi's poster & they think the Chow was very very similar.
The man is described as in his 40's, slim build, about 5'11, possibly dark european looking, although no trace of an accent. He apparently didn't really look as if he owned the dog! (at first glance the people thought he may have been homeless). They will keep a look out again in the area, posters will be distributed locally when some obs' have been completed. Local police will be made aware.
janeb
just a thought have any posters gone up in animal feed merchants both agricultural and domestic. I've got friends in the BH11 areas so will contact them now to keep their eyes peeled as all 3 have dogs and walk miles a day.

Over the weekend we were informed that Lexi could be in the Bournemouth area, this has not been confirmed so I have not bumped the page as we still need news from Crackington Haven. The alerts were sent out to BH postcodes in the hope that helpers in the area will keep a look out especially in the Gardens and Pier areas.

Hi I've seen your search on fb earlier and this evening a chow chow has been pictured in Cyprus queried abandoned. I no it a long shot but I have saved the photographs as you will be able to tell straight off by the face shot if the dog is Lexi ! Cannot see an option to add photographs on here but feel free to contact me 07909881161 or Hayley.rosario321@sky.com dogs can travel as quick outside the uk as it can in so you never know

Jan I'm sure that all the good people writing to you will understand if they don't get an immediate reply. Maybe you should announce your thanks to them and explain this, at the same time asking for anyone who has information regarding Lexi to make that clear in the title so that it has your immediate attention?

It really is heartwarming to see all those shares and good thoughts isn't it.

Oh, and a glass or two of chardonnay sounds a great idea :)

Hello I am from portsmouth and have seen this dig (could be same breed) but we are a small community so this type of dog stood out from the crown! Never see uf male or female as was in a van panting out the window with a grey/blue toung (southsea seafront) a large male in a white van parked up to get an ice cream and see this stunning lion if a dog.

Was just looking at this on Facebook's Help find Lexie Jan. Impressive poster! No-one could fail to miss it. Well done to Red Alert, Paul of Fernbank Advertising and Gavin from Kenetic clothing for making this possible. Any idea when space may be available?

On a similar theme (but much smaller!)would the local bus company (Western Greyhound?) be willing to put posters up on their buses?

This is also a sure sign to anyone who may be concealing Lexi that you are NOT going to give up looking for her. She will be found!

Stay strong Jan x

I have updated Lexi's Facebook page with an image of a large (5ft x 3FT ) poster that will be displayed in Bus Shelters in Bude & surrounding areas as soon as space is available ... This has been made possible with the amazing help of our Guardian Angel J D (Red Alert ) , Paul of Fernbank Advertising & Gavin of Kenetic Clothing .. Thank you !

Baydogs
Jan, you may already be doing this but in light of what happened here-
http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog-blog.php?dogId=71773
it would be advisable to contact all dog wardens and rescue centres again, and keep doing so on a regular basis.
MamaBas
Here again this morning in the hope ....... I just wish somebody woul 'fess up to what happened. Trouble is I seriously doubt any farmer would come here/bother to let you know if they were involved. Tragic because if nothing else, you do need CLOSURE. I'm sorry to bang on about farmers, but otherwise I can't see anybody just keeping her - she's going to need a vet at some point and most vets in the area know about her. I just keep seeing dog/field/lambs..... and a farmer.
JANJAN
Bless you Baydogs for your input ... We just want LEXI home , however , whatever it takes ,, Life is so sad without her ! but we also know it may not be good news ... At least knowing would be a closure of sorts xxx
Baydogs
Hi Jan. I view this page regularly, hoping for some positive news, and I don't expect that I am unique in doing so. There are also all the new people from FB shares and the like who will be visiting this page for the first time. This is good, because it shows that the numbers of people aware that Lexi is still missing has increased and will snowball.

As for someone viewing this page because they have Lexi in their possession, I can't personally imagine why - unless their conscience is pricking them. After all, you have repeatedly stated that there is a substantial reward available with NO QUESTIONS ASKED as long as Lexi is returned. What more would they need to know?

This not knowing must be incredibly painful for you, and the last nine weeks a waking nightmare.

To anyone who has ANY information at all, please make contact. This can be done anonymously if you prefer.

Thinking of you x
JeanT
There are a few people looking for Chow Chow males for stud for their red girls, on StudYourDog.com. One of them says they haven't the proper papers for their bitch. I know Lexie is spayed but people wouldn't necessarily know that, especially if they have no computer or if she's been sold on. Just a thought.
missy
i have seen that a few people have.been reunited after number of years, so its.good that you have her microchipped. stay positive
JANJAN
Lexi has had nearly 16000 views on here which is amazing!! It is 9 weeks tomorrow since our lives were turned upside down . truthfully we don't know what has happened or is happening to Lexi and that is painful. We hope that it is people who CARE about Lexi and NOT people who MAY have Lexi that are viewing her page .Please come forward if you know anything at all !! contact doglost if that is easier than contacting us directly ...Please just let us know Thank you

Thank you for that link Max. Great that Bungle was found, also that Lexi had another mention. I was taking to someone today who, although aware of Lexi, assumed she had been found by now. Perhaps this article will alert others to the fact she is still missing if they assume the same.

Jan, it is bad enough to lose a beloved pet near one's home, so I can't imagine how heartwrenching and frustrating it must be to live miles away. Remember, you have many helpers here who will continue looking and sharing until your return. xxLast edited: 2014-07-09 18:59:45 by Baydogs

This is an article in this weeks Cornish Guardian saying how Bungle was found, but also mentions that Lexi is still missing.
JANJAN
Baydogs. Thank you for your advise which I have implemented .We have done as much as humanly possible to find out where Lexi is,albeit difficult from being 250 miles from where Lexi might be. Anymore feasible ideas are gratefully appreciated if I can do from our home here in South Derbyshire.Please continue to help us any which way you can .. We need to get her home ASAP xxx
MamaBas
Baydogs - thinking back to the start, there was a point at which a 'den' was said to have been found, with fur matching a Chow's there. Also some whimpering. Since then nothing. I also believe the clue lies with the local farmers - who had fields with lambs in at the time she first took off. As most of the often freely delivered newspapers here in Bude do carry a piece on Lexi being missing, I just wish if some farmer KNOWS what happened to her, he'd at least have the decency to come forward and let her owners know. At least they'd have closure. I can't imagine not knowing, if one of mine went missing. I also suggested physically approaching the local farmers round Crackington H. would be a good idea. Not sure whether this was ever done. Finding a barn, after all these weeks - unlikely although if she has a food source it might be possible. The longer a dog is out, the more they 'revert' so expecting her to show herself would be a slim possibility. If she had a canine companion she might come out then - I wonder if coming down with the daughter who normally looked after her, might be effective - calling her? IF she's still out there. If she's been stolen, there's no doubt she could be anywhere by now. I still come here every morning to see if the best has happened though.Last edited: 2014-07-08 11:12:54 by MamaBas
Baydogs
JANJAN, not only is Lexi an ususual breed, she is hardly the sort of dog one can smuggle underneath one's coat. She will be seen somewhere!
Having just read this whole thread from start to finish I agree with others here that farmers are often the people who spot lost animals in the area. I expect you've already done this but I'm going to mention it just in case- What about contacting agricultural suppliers in Cornwall
http://www.yell.com/s/agricultural+supplies-cornwall.html
There are also smaller feed stores too that supply smallholders and stables. A list can be brought up via Google.
If Lexi is the sort of dog that doesn't care to over exert herself, do you think she has found a barn somewhere and is waiting for you to come and get her? This may be especially true if she doesn't care for the rain. Would she eventually bark if she was shut in a shed/barn somewhere?

Very strange. I've just looked again and she has disappeared! She was only £100 and looked to be a beautiful girl. Snapped up I expect and perhaps someone wanted to get rid of her quickly.I wonder if pets4homes will give any info?
JANJAN
JeanT I've had a look on there and can't see one in Halifax .. Am I looking in the right place ??
JANJAN
Hi Baydogs, When it rains Lexi usually comes in but if she's out there somewhere she'll have no choice but to get wet! There has already been a couple of articles done by the local newspapers. Everyday we try to think of ways to reach the people of Cornwall in the hope that someone will know where Lexi is. IF ? she has been taken by someone she may not even be in Cornwall anymore ... We still hope that because she is an unusual breed that she will be more noticeable . Thank you for caring xx
JeanT
Hello Jan, There's another red chow chow bitch for sale on pets4homes, this time in Halifax ( says due to a marriage break up ).
Baydogs
JANJAN, I have to commend you for your mighty efforts in finding your girl. I know that you must be concerned but there have been some really heavy showers down here today so maybe she is sheltering somewhere. Does she mind the rain? One thing about a missing Chow in this area is that there aren't many seen. With everything you are doing, I'm sure that you'll be reunited soon.
Like many others, I saw the advertisement. Have you considered approaching one of the local newspapers (West Briton or Cornishman) about running a little feature?Last edited: 2014-07-07 16:26:23 by Baydogs

DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
We had a call to admin today from a gentleman who saw a Chow Chow in Bude. I have passed the details on to Poochpal who is going to forward them to Max.
MamaBas
I have just checked and it's 10 miles, by road admittedly from Crackington H. to Bude. Probably slightly less across country but WOULD Lexi have left Crackington and headed out to Bude - unless she was picked up and then dumped. She could equally as easily, if so minded, have gone 10 miles in the other direction, or inland. Also, and I hate raining on any parade, but the two areas she might have been sighted in are, I think, on opposite sides of town so would she have crossed the busy town? I'm here should there be a pos. sighting in or immediately around Bude.
Add - Her notice is in the N.Cornwall Advertiser, just delivered free. I so hope anybody who knows what happened to her comes forward.......Last edited: 2014-07-04 08:27:18 by MamaBas

Getting some replies from a request on Bude Banter. Seems this may be a local dog, often out, possibly grey. But interestingly the sighting they seem to be talking about was on Ocean View Road. Hopefully someone will be able to help confirm. Just so coincidental that it was described as a 'Husky' type, like Bungle was.
DogLostMax - Area Coordinator, Cornwall, Volunteer Durham & Ireland
I have had a reply from the person who gave the info. The dog was a white-ish coloured husky type dog, seen in Berries ave,Bude, so from desc possibly not Lexi, but would not discount it.

JANJAN, perhaps if you speak to Alison, the owner of the other Chow Bungle, she hasn't got a computer up & running. Maybe you can help her with phone numbers etc of papers who have given you free advertising. her mobile is 07807 881505. Thanks
MamaBas
JJ, looking on Pets4Homes I see there's a breeder in Barnstaple with puppies for sale. Not on the doorstep, but I've taken the liberty of emailing her with an alert about Lexi and also about Bungle. I've asked her if she happens to notice a 'new' Chow in the town/surrounding area, to contact you.

Update - breeder has emailed me back and is now 'aware'.Last edited: 2014-06-28 10:14:32 by MamaBas

I have put an advert in 3 Cornish group newspapers in PETS section saying that Lexi is missing and that there is a reward for her safe return . I cheekily looked in The Cornish Guardian today (without buying) and the advert is in... Hopefully it might be seen and we will get Lexi back.I also contacted North Cornwall Advertiser the free newspaper who are also putting an advert in very kindly for free ! Red Alert has been ace in providing a photo for them , bless you RA . We just have to rely on everyone to keep doing what you're doing to help get Lexi back to us ..love to you all Thank you ☺ xx

JANJAN, have pestered the reporter to contact you, he had a deadline for this weeks paper which unfortunately we weren't in time for. He has all the links for info.
I have given Bungles owner (the other missing Chow) a poster of Lexi, she may ring you, she will also spread word along with hers. I have posters of Lexi to put out tomorrow.
DogLostMax - Area Coordinator, Cornwall, Volunteer Durham & Ireland
Spoken to a reporther from West Briton newspaper, have given him this ref & also Bungle ref 70813. Hopefully he is going to do an article (fingers crossed)
JANJAN
You know when you feel you are in the right place ? Not sure why we feel its right to be here but hopefully we will get Lexi back here or we will have closure here!! Please let it be cuz we are here to take Lexi home
JANJAN
I have been in touch to make enquiries too young to be Lexi. Chipped and has papers ... Thanks for sharing x

There's a red Chow Chow bitch for sale on Pets4Homes (Manchester area).

MammaBas... if there is (a connection) at least both are spayed/neutered so no use for breeding. They both need to be publicised widely just in case someone decides to let them go (as with the latest collie Poppet 70799 on here). People must not give up looking.Last edited: 2014-06-23 12:32:12 by Fergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall

Hi - If you are still down here, have you been, in person, to any of the farms immediately around Crackington? I'm still sadly thinking about the fact some trigger happy farmer could have thought she was in a field with lambs.......... It's so odd that after the first 'sightings', the den and fur thing, that nothing further has been heard or found. I also wondered about her trying to find her way home since she wasn't really familiar with your holiday location. And add to that WHY she'd take off in the first place (unless she does this back home?) I'm still mindful of her being missing but as the weeks pass, not too hopeful - I wish I could give you closure at least and you are owed that.
Mmm - BUNGLE Chow gone missing from down here now - could here be a connection?????Last edited: 2014-06-23 10:56:50 by MamaBas
JANJAN
All these thoughts have been ours too ! How do you narrow down who, where, when? We contacted holiday parks to be aware but still no info .. Just don't know what to do next.. We really are in the hands of that awaited phone call!
JeanT
I just wondered if someone who was staying near you at the same time took Lexie home with them. It would be a help to know where in the British Isles they came from so you could target those towns. She could be well out of the West Country.xx
JANJAN
I have contacted vets in Cornwall & Devon in case she was taken As I have said many times it's a complete mystery where she is ?? Thank you all again for your support, It is so good that we have the help we have xx
DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
Tx JeanT and all of team Lexi.....we are totally behind you JanJan....
JeanT
I am always keeping a look out for Lexie down here in South West Cornwall. Have you thought of contacting holiday places/owners where Lexie went missing to find out where other holiday makers at that time came from? You wouldn't need to have their names but just their areas and then you could target vets in those towns or get posters put up. Let's face it she could have been taken away right up North. Another thought, would she have attempted to walk back to her home? Some dogs do and cover hundreds of miles. Anyway, I so want to hear good news about her.xx
JANJAN
Well we should be back home now but as we could stay in the caravan we decided to stay another week . It sometimes feels comforting to be near where LEXI got LOST !! We are trying to relax a little after nearly 6 weeks of stress and sadness . Hoping we might get that magic call while we are still here! Last edited: 2014-06-21 17:25:35 by JANJAN

We seem to have had a lot of hits 12000+ on LEXI'S page. Can I plead that if you log in to see progress or non progress and you have information on where LEXI is. PLEASE. . PLEASE contact us for the reward is in place and ready to pay out for the safe return of our puppy dog LEXI who is so precious to us !!

Thanks for your comments MAMABAS ..We arrived in CRACKINGTON on 9th May & LEXI went missing the morning of 12th May . We have contacted the RSPCA in Exeter & St.Columb.We also phoned their National base & they now use pets located.com to register through which we have done. It's just such a mystery ! We don't know what else to do that hasn't already been done!We have postered Wadebridge & Camelford today in the hope that someone may have information regarding LEXI .As said before why hasn't she been positively seen anywhere?? Even the REWARD OFFERED has not produced any positive information.
MamaBas
Wish I'd known you were in Flexbury ...... but I keep coming back to the question WHY would she make her way from Crackington to Bude in the first place unless somebody picked her up and then dumped her. You'd know why she might do this, but it really doesn't make sense to me?? Clearly you have to follow any and every lead but perhaps rather than try tramping fields over such a wide area, I'd still suspect she'd be closer to where you are, even if she didn't know the area .. how long were you down with her before she went missing? Have you been in touch with the RSPCA Exeter and the one at St Columb - and there's a private Shelter the other side of Launceston - if she's been picked up she could yet be in one of them. The one in Cornwall say they have no Chow in there at the moment - I emailed them.Last edited: 2014-06-19 12:45:05 by MamaBas

JANJAN, it must be so frustrating for you. I really hope there is some positive news soon. Getting some posters done for Perranporth, as we get lots of tourists here with dogs.
JANJAN
Just returned from Redruth after receiving a phone call from a lady who had seen LEXI'S poster .. One of her neighbours had just acquired a Chow recently & it was an adult ! We went to see them in Redruth ... The Chow is 2years old and a boy . At least we know that the posters are working .Perhaps the next call might be LEXI !! X
JANJAN
Moogie thank you . I contacted NFU this morning Launceston & Halwill branches and they took all details off me ... Also had a phone call to say that the Chow in Lewannick belongs to a elderly lady who has lived there for many years so I think we can assume to be eliminated but I know that Simon the dog warden is supposed to be going tomorrow to confirm although I did text him to say was probably okay to eliminate ! Had no reply from him as yet. We have been to Flexbury area of BUDE today to follow thru on possible sighting 2 weeks ago .. The area is very wooded & lots of fields that are almost impassible but we did poster the area as we could see that it is used by dog walkers .I also visited the lady who phoned on the possible sighting 3rd4th June & she still thinks what she saw at approx. 2am could have been a fluffy dog which is why we did the Flexbury walk today with gentle talking to Lexi but the area is vast ..like looking for a needle in needles! Must keep hoping for a miracle

Not sure if you saw this reply on Facebook:
''Jan, what about trying to get in touch with someone in the National Farmers Union(NFU) in Bude and CRackington Haven to see if they can spread the word to the farms in those areas in case they see Lexie out and about, she could be hiding in barns etc, good luck''
DogLostFergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Postie was great when Fergal went missing, and the local recycler lorry carried a poster for me. Oh and it was a farmer who found him, lying in a field with his sheep - he didn't shoot him he phoned me and sat cuddling him till I got there. Lexi is known to everyone I talk to now Jan. But yes farmers are a good bet. X
JANJAN
We have commented on a couple of sites including FB to appeal to farmers in the areas to be aware of LEXI being missing and to be vigilant on their land and not hurt her .She is very friendly and we want to take her home ! There is a SUBSTANTIAL REWARD FOR LEXI'S SAFE RETURN .. PLEASE HELP ! Thank you Mads xxx

RE: Farmers sometimes not tolerating stray dogs on their land. You have probably already done this Jan, but it is worth getting in touch with as many farmers in the area as you can. It was a farmer who trapped Jay for us in the end and, not being funny but, a reward is a great incentive not to shoot a dog on their land. xxxxx
JANJAN
Moogie. NO ONE GOT IN TOUCH!!
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Pleased facebooker got in touch with you.
Yes please get in touch with posties, oil deliveries, taxi and bus companies, and other people who are out and about daily. Sorry there's been no news over the weekend
MamaBas
I had to take my Basset to the vet in town this morning and checked re Lexi's poster which was on the counter. There is a lot going on on the farms (lambing for starters although it's a tad past that now) which worries me, knowing how farmers can be with dogs straying on their land at this time of year.

Have you found a local postie to ask about her ...... they know where a new dog pops up with a household.Last edited: 2014-06-16 17:11:35 by MamaBas
JANJAN
Moogie ..just to say ,we had no contact via Facebook about Lewannick Chow.
JANJAN
There is a lot of activity on the farms here in Cornwall at this time of year! Thinking that if Lexi was hiding she would probably have been seen by now .Keep thinking that someone may have her? We hope that "someone" has a conscious & decides to take her to somewhere that we can get her back from ..please watch for people where you live to suddenly "acquire" a new dog like Lexi xxLast edited: 2014-06-15 21:58:42 by JANJAN

Have been out today doing more postering along coastal path & in BUDE .To get NATIONAL coverage would everybody who looks on LEXI's page print a poster off www.doglost.co.uk 68830 is LEXI's ID number then put somewhere where you live.that way the whole country will see LEXI X
JANJAN
We are back in CRACKINGTON HAVEN ready to find and take Lexi home ... Please keep sharing to make Lexi " HOT " SUBSTANTIAL REWARD in place ready to PAY OUT !!!

Hi Jan Jan, Bude and Beyond have been and are great at sharing on both Facbook and twitter. I have asked for a contact number for the dog walker or elderly lady who owns the chow in Lewannick
JANJAN
Spoke with Dog warden's office earlier & Simon is not in until Tuesday & no one there could update me on LEWANNICK Chow walker. I also received a text about oriental man with Chow in Bude being seen but texted back to say we were already aware of him & it not being Lexi .It's good to know people are still looking out for Lexi xx
JANJAN
I have spoken to Ilfracombe Dogs Trust this morning and as I thought I had already sent them the info / poster about Lexi which she told me is now on display . I don't think a visit will be needed as the lady is well aware of Lexi .Thanks for caring x
MamaBas
Sorry to keep banging on about this, without really being able to offer much that's constructive, but as is often the case with Shelters, they don't always get the breed right (much as a Chow should be pretty obvious!!) so I would perhaps consider going into their Shelter personally to check. It's between Barnstaple and Ilfracombe on the A 361 out of Braunton so easly found, if you have the time. Keeping positive thoughts.

"the man in Lewannick ( who walks peoples dogs for them" -from JanJan earlier today, is there a local helper who can try and find contact details for this chap please? He must advertise somewhere or someone must see him out with the dogs or does he have a sign written vehicle. Then Jan can phone him herself.
JANJAN
This was Lexi's first holiday away with us (my daughter always used to stay with her when we were away). It was the first day of our holiday that the sun had come out so it wasn't storms . We never let her off the lead accept when we are at our own home so this is an unexplained action from Lexi !We live 250 miles from Crackington Haven . We knew no one there until after Lexi had gone missing .It is a complete mystery WHY , and WHERE she is now ?? I will phone dogs trust tomorrow but I think I already notified them about Lexi being missing but another call won't hurt . I am still waiting for call back from Dog Warden !!Last edited: 2014-06-12 18:28:34 by JANJAN
MamaBas
Thinking more on this one - WOULD she have gone walk-about - it's quite a step from Crackington Haven up to Bude. Has she gone off like this before? What would have caused her to do this - storms? (we have had thunder recently and torrential rain). Have you contacted Dogs Trust up in Ilfracombe in case somebody picked her up and handed her in there?

I'm asking this because trying to understand why she'd take off might help find where she'd go. For example would she try to get to your other home (if this was from your holiday home?). If she was in season, which being spayed clearly she wasn't, she might take off to find a mate. Did she have a local family down here who had been used to feeding her? Again understanding more about why she went missing, might shed some more light on where she'd head?Last edited: 2014-06-12 17:45:48 by MamaBas
JANJAN
MamaBas - All of this has been done (ALL vets in Cornwall) also dog groomers & rescue homes & kennels . Just need to know where to look ?
MamaBas
When you come into town, don't forget to call in at the vet in town (Locke and Preston) and also Penbode just outside town (on the A39 just by the turn off into Bude) if you haven't notified them already? Could be somebody might have brought her in for treatment?
JANJAN
The dog warden was supposed to be going back to see the man in Lewannick ( who walks peoples dogs for them )this week but as yet I have not heard from him. & I have NO number for him ... I will try & call Cornwall,s dog warden for some info !I have just phoned them & am waiting for a call back with update (13.51)Last edited: 2014-06-12 13:51:33 by JANJAN

Thank you MamaBas for this info .. will definitely go & speak to the workmen when we come down on Saturday. We appreciate all the help we can & are getting from the wonderful people of Bude ,all over Cornwall & everywhere. Please keep sharing ! she MUST be somewhere xxx
MamaBas
Also, there is a big building development going on at the back of Sainsburys so it might be worth talking to the builders on site in case they've spotted her lurking around (food?). Perhaps somebody there has been sharing their lunch with her!??
MamaBas
Hi - I've not been here for some time, for various reasons, but I've just seen your poster for Lexie (on the gate leading onto the golf course). We live in the Flexbury end of Bude, just off the golf course, so will keep a look out for her when walking our two and driving around town too. Sending you good thoughts that Lexie is reunited with her loving owners. Thankfully Bude is VERY dog-oriented .... I'd just caution the 'sighting' of her with somebody - there is a Chow living locally in Bude which I see out regularly so sadly this may not be her. We get all sorts here in Bude because it is so dog-friendly. Loads of water out up and down the town.Last edited: 2014-06-12 11:33:51 by MamaBas

Feeling really sad today as all has gone really quiet on what was potentially a probable sighting .where is Lexi ? Someone you would hope has some info but as said before she seems to have vanished! We are coming back down on Saturday for a week and will obvisouly be doing a further search for our baby! We have printed loads more posters & will poster from the Midlands down to Cornwall hopefully to alert holiday makers to be aware of Lexi being missing . Will be bringing more scenting items & will be prepared to do overnight stakeouts on what may have been a possible sighting near the golf course.We cannot imagine life without Lexi ! And the worst is the NOT knowing where or what has happened to our baby ... Please be on the lookout still for Lexi. She must be SOMEWHERE!!!




DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Just had this back from Sandra Evans on Facebook: i was just saying to jan about scenting the areas where the possible sightings of lexie were, and to perhaps set up feeding stations just in case she is in the area, sorry to confuse you. hope lexie is found soon, good luck to you all.
JANJAN
Perhaps grasping at straws but does anyone know if there is CCTV around the Golf Course / Sainsbury's area that may prove useful?

I am trying to send an update to Sandra Evans on Facebook who is commenting on Lexi ... But as I am such a plonker on the web ! I don't know how to !! As yet there is no update .. I have spoken to Jenny Brown Tiga's Mum who has offered lots of advise but was not available at the time to consider a search ... Will try to contact Jenny again to see if she can come down to possibly do a search ??
JANJAN
Bless you for searching for Lexi again , You are all truly wonderful for what you do for us ... I did put a poster in the phone box that is next to the job centre car park ... Being here at home I am not sure if that is still there !I also went into the clubhouse & they kindly put a poster up in the ladies changing rooms ... saying that they were aware of Lexi being missing .Sometimes when a poster has been up a while in the same place it almost becomes invisible , so any extra postering can only be good .. Please keep doing what you are doing !!! we can only hope that Lexi will make an appearance & be home soon xxxLast edited: 2014-06-08 18:35:51 by JANJAN

Does anyone in Bude know if there is another local Chow Chow living here? I met a lady (Alison) this morning when doing another search around the area. She saw a man walking with a Chow on the 'first Monday' after Lexie went missing' through the Job Centre car park towards the Post Office. As the 12th was a Monday, this may have been the following week (19th). It would be really helpful if we were able to eliminate any local Chow other than the breeder's, who Alison said this definitely wasn't as she knows him from the Tiandi Restaurant. I put a poster on the Flexbury footpath onto the Golf Course and then a member kindly took one for the Club House too. Another poster is now up the Job Centre car park, and also at the Car Boot which Chris, the owner, will keep up until August for us. Lots of people there today and it will continue to be busy, so lots of exposure, thank you Chris! I got in a little trouble walking the golf course, and I do apologise for not keeping to the footpath, really sorry guys. All posters (bright yellow) will come down the minute Lexie comes home - there is a reward - . (Sue)
JANJAN
Thinking about our "puppy dog" ( nothing new there ) Hoping because it's Sunday that lots of people will be out n about and hoping also LEXI will be out n about that she will be seen and enticed and "caught" We know this is a long shot but she has to be somewhere ! We hope n pray she will be sighted and we can come down sooner to bring her home . PLEASE LEXI SHOW YOURSELF SWEETHEART , We are here for you !! x
JANJAN
Thank you Fergal's Servant .. it is so reassuring that you are there for us. We are back down there again on 14th June , hopefully to collect Lexi or at least do our bit in finding her xxx

Just returned from a mooch around the sighting area off East Fairholme and up on the Golf Course over to the back of the Co-op. No luck I am afraid. Went a little along the leafy lane almost immediately behind Melliars Way leading to the Golf Course but very dark by then and the thunder storm started too. Too dark to see anything but an awful lot of places to nest. I spoke to a few people who didn't know about Lexie, and didn't see any posters so will go back with some as soon as I get my printer up and running again.. Checked with the Chow breeder in Bude just in case he was walking one of his at the time, he wasn't, so at least we can eliminate that possibility. But he did say he checked with some of his contacts to keep an eye out on the 'Chow network' which was good of him. There are plenty of places for a lost dog to get a drink, streams etc. AND it is bin day Monday morning so PLEASE everyone in Bude and surrounding areas please check your bin bags and dustbins for any tampering. Don't just clear up the mess and do nothing - let us know.
Hazel... thank you for doing those two service stations, sorry I haven't been able to get on the internet for a few days now to reply but it would have been a great help to speak directly to them so thanks for that. (Sue)Last edited: 2014-06-06 23:37:42 by Fergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall

JANJAN
I had a phone call this morning from a lady in LEWANNICK telling me about a man seen walking a Chow ... I said that I knew about this But as there seems some confusion about this Chow being walked in LEWANNICK that the Dog Warden has agreed to scan this dog next week to eliminate it being Lexi ..
JANJAN
Just to say thank you to Bude & Stratton Post ( LUKE SMITH ) for their brill story & photo about Lexi still being missing . It seems to have generated some interest as we received a phone call earlier about a " possible " sighting in Flexbury area .The Doglost team are helping us as usual to obtain more information to pursue .... Many thanks Red Alert. We have emailed 33 VETS in Cornwall to ask to display a poster from Doglost website ( link provided with the help of my wonderful niece Lucie ). Also that if any Chows are taken into any of the vets that they scan them ,if only to eliminate them as not being Lexi . Many thanks again to our Friends who are working on our behalf .xxx

********POSSIBLE SIGHTING OF LEXIE*******
There has been a possible sighting of Lexie at Melliars Way at the end Of East Fairholme road Bude on 4th June. It was 2am on Wednesday morning when a resident was woken by a noise in the street. When she looked out of the window, between 2 lamp lights, she could see what she thought was a large fox/dog. It was not until her daughter related the story of Lexie in the Bude & Stratton Post that this sighting became significant. The area is near the golf course and it is quite feasible that Lexie has travelled along the coastal route over Crooklets and then near to the golf course.Last edited: 2014-06-05 18:47:15 by Red Alert

She has got to be SOMEWHERE or hopefully SOMEONE knows SOMETHING .

I have just received a phone call from a gentleman in Bude to ask if there was any news on Lexi as he had seen her story & photo in the newspaper that she was / is missing. Sadly I told him that there had been no news of any certainty about Lexi . He had owned a Chow himself for 13 years & fully understood how devastated we must be without her . He got upset on the phone & ended the call . I am not sure which newspaper the story was in ( I had contacted Cornish & Devon Post & West Briton Cornish Guardian ) but if it got his attention hopefully it will do the same for anyone who has any information that could help us get Lexi home . Another prayer session I think ! THANK YOU HAZEL FOR POSTERING FURTHER AFIELD xxLast edited: 2014-06-04 20:57:31 by JANJAN

Fergal's Servant....just to let you know posters are now delivered to both Gordano and Michealwood Servicea here on the M5 ....both very concerned and will do there most to post ...:)
JANJAN
Chows are notoriously difficult to WALK ... They don't like to get their feet wet .. Lexi will walk around a puddle rather than through it ... She spends most of her time on a walk stopping to "SNIFF" rather than walk. Fifteen / twenty minutes is enough , She will just " PLONK " and have a rest.. As a breed they are VERY stubborn ! They are very aloof .. Which I hope will go in her favour .. Last edited: 2014-06-04 07:33:56 by JANJAN

As Moogie suggested I am looking at the sites that advertise dogs for sale ... They are either for puppies or adult dogs which for now don't fit Lexi's description . Will obviously keep looking .. As there have been NO sightings since the first day .. It is open to whether she is injured , tangled / caught up somewhere TAKEN or very worst scenario is she may have d--d . Please just keep doing what you are doing in the hope she will be found "" SAFE & WELL "" xxx
JANJAN
WoW ! so much going on ... she can't stay in hiding much longer surely ? LEXI "Where are you ? We miss you and need you home NOW ! Come on puppy dog ..We are waiting to go and see Grandpa ! Thank you all for spreading the word .. We WILL find her !

I've just had a message from someone who said they saw a dog matching Lexi's description being walked by a scruffy man in LEWINNICK, near Launceston Obviously it might not be Lexi, but I wondered if anyone knows someone who owns a chow chow in this area. Also we could do with a few posters up here too. I am asking around Facebook for help
Edited to say: I've been told there are two Chows in this area and owners are very approachable, so please stop and ask if you have the chance
Edited to also add that someone has messaged me to say they live in Lewannick and know the scruffy man that was mentioned in relation to the Lexi. He is the womans friends dad and he walks many dogs for the local elderly residents of the village. The chow chow dog he was walking belongs to an older lady in the village. We can now rule out the Launceston dog if this is true but posters would be worth putting up in the area.Last edited: 2014-06-03 21:58:32 by Moogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall

I'm trying to get as many people on Facebook to go through the sites below.
Someone has mentioned that they saw a dog like Lexi tied up to a post near a travellers camp in North Wales. I dont know where, what date or if it was a chow or not but I am trying to find out more details.
Lexi has now gone national on Facebook with thousands of shares as far as Scotland. (Even France and USA!) Everyone is talking about her and sending their kind thoughts and wishes to the owners). I have a few more to check out and will update once I find out moreLast edited: 2014-06-03 20:20:43 by Moogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall

Hi Jan, it maybe worth emailing all Cornwall vets with Lexi's poster stressing that they make sure they scan all dogs matching her description.
I have covered a few vets and kennels via facebook.
Did you receive my email Jan with useful links. It's worth keeping a look out on Gumtree, Preloved and Vivastreet. They are three main places where people will sell animals and is worth checking regularly. Links are on the email I sent you. Last edited: 2014-06-03 17:07:38 by Moogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
JANJAN
I have been on Dartmoor Rescue site & it seems that you use them by contacting the Police first .. This probably eliminates using them to find animals ... If you know this is wrong please let me know xx
JANJAN
Just checked with "chip "company PETRAC they DO NOT contact vets but put pets missing on a national database that vets can access. Not ideal if a vet doesn't suspect a pet they are treating maybe missing // Stolen .. Too late for us to change the company & Chip that's in Lexi now she's missing !If only we could have a sighting we would know were we should be looking ??
JANJAN
I contacted kennels, vets , rescue centres & Dog groomers last week attaching Lexi's photo ... The chip company have obviously been contacted but I will phone them again & ask their procedure when an animal goes missing ... will report on that later . I will also contact Dartmoor rescue to ask the question ( thank you for that idea devonmade ). Pirate radio have been contacted as has BBC Radio Cornwall . Thank you all for your constant help & advise.... She must be somewhere !!
devonmade
and also Pirate FM have a lost pets section and they read them out as well
devonmade
just a thought, and I am sure it has been done, but what about Dartmoor Rescue? they are all volunteers and generally look for humans as I understand it (I could be wrong), but they are brilliant and may want to help - they go over all sorts of terrain, not just Dartmoor
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Has the chip company contacted all vets? If not it's worth sending a poster to as many as possible alerting them that to please scan for a chip if one is brought in?" Also worth sending info and posters to as many rescue and kennels as possible

Been back to Crackington Haven today. We walked from St. Gennys along the coastal path and down to the Old Cottage where we placed Jan's scented shirt and an explanatory poster (it's actually just at the start of the coastal path, where I hope many will see it). Obviously no sign of Lexie, but as we know from experience, she's likely to lay low during the day. Fingers crossed she shows herself if she's still in the area.
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Just had a massive posting session on Facebook, spreading Lexie further afield. Have done as many kennels and dog warden Facebook groups as possible. Also posted on as many sell it and dog/pet pages from Redruth to Devon. Still have St Ives, Hayle Helston and Penzance areas to cover yet, but taking a break and will continue to spread the word far and wide. Can everyone make Lexie as famous as possible please?

Thank you Red Alert, you have are fantastic :) Changes made to info

Can we add to the description please that Lexie has a black tongue. I believe that other breeds also have black tongues but Chows have this genetically
JANJAN
Thank you RED ALERT .. Great idea to use the Chow Chow sites . we are so grateful to you for all your help . Bless you !XX
Red Alert
Today The Chow Chow Rescue has been contacted in Oxford. The Chow Chow Clubs across the UK have also been contacted with posters of Lexie.
JANJAN
Just heard from RED ALERT ! Simply buzzing with ideas .... Will update ASAP . Thank you all again for your continued support. We can never thank you enough .... What a party we will have when Lexi is found xxxxxx. I am just off to a belated Midnight Mass to beg our dear Lord for help!

Aw that's a shame! Is it worth contacting more local tracker dogs? Hope you get a sighting, anything, soon xxx

Come on Lexie, we need a really good sighting of you. Please show yourself
JANJAN
Thank you MillieVW . I spoke to Jenny earlier & sadly she is not available to come ! I have emailed Bude police to ask if they could be on the lookout for Lexi as they go about the area . I have also had a reply from Luke at The Cornish & Devon post & he is putting a story in the newspaper so hopefully that will help spread the word . Also The Camping & Caravanning Club are tweeting & facebooking for their members to help... Here's hoping !!

Hubby says the dog we saw in Bath was darker around the mouth, red rather than blonde.

Is it possible to get tiga down to Cornwall to scent??
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Tweeting to north Cornwall, newspapers, Bude etc
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
The dog I saw was more ginger around the mouth with white hairs which are more ageing hairs than general colour. Sorry to confuse anyone but I will take another look if I get the opportunity as she lives locallyLast edited: 2014-05-29 15:01:57 by Moogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall

Hi everyone just to update you all .. I have contacted 2 newspapers today West Briton/Cornish Guardian & Cornish & Devon Post , both have said they will put something about Lexi in . Hopefully that will spread the net wider. Also spoke to Jenny with Tiga but she is not available to help at the moment . I will update again later as to what I have managed to do this afternoon. My bum is firmly glued to my computer chair hoping to alert the public further . xxxx
Mads
Jan's sending another scented item down. Can I have everyone's expert advice on where is best to place it please? Thanks in advance. I'll be going back up on Saturday and, again, if anyone else would like to meet up that would be lovely x
JANJAN
Please look at Lexi's picture ... She is quite blonde /white around nose and blonde mix on her facial ruff .. also as she was due for her grooming on 2nd June with Debs.... her fur On the BACK of each paw will be long & fairly blonde. She may be what you would describe as "Scraggy " due to her needing a trim ! I have contacted several groomers in the area ... it is quite expensive to keep LEXI & any dog well groomed which means at least every 2 / 3 months .Please be on the lookout for our BABY ! We need her home xxxxLast edited: 2014-05-29 01:02:59 by JANJAN

Just seen a woman walking a red chow. I stopped and asked about her dog. It was definitley not Lexi as had white hairs around the face and looked older. She said she was 8 years old. She also said there was a breeder in St Austell but doesn't think she is still breeding chows. There are definitely 2 in Stithians and 2 in Penzance.

hi have the scent dogs been used yet as I see the little Chinese crested has been found after they picked up a scent and pinpointed the area he was hiding Last edited: 2014-05-28 14:58:31 by linz

Moogie, I live very near Park Bottom, Illogan and have seen the man walking a red Chow in the area on numerous occasions so think this one can be discounted. Jan - praying you have some good news on Lexie very soon x
JANJAN
Lexi & most Chows don't bark unless there is something worth barking for ! ie something or someone around their domain. But I suppose it's possible that if it is Lexi ? she may bark to get your attention ? Last edited: 2014-05-28 10:02:23 by JANJAN
DogLostMillieVW - Area Volunteer, West Wiltshire
It was quite low and steady but it was quite echo-y as it was in Southgate with tall thick stone buildings. It carried on for a while as to begin with I was stood round the corner, I thought maybe a dog had been left alone. Was very surprised to find it sat with people. It's probably not Lexi but I'll definitely report anything else that comes up x
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Fergals there's been some more fur found recently
DogLostSherlock-Area volunteer Gloucestershire south
No worries....will get some posters down there and let you know what I've done x

Yes I have the photo of the fur , It's hard to tell if it's Lexi's via a photo... It was found between HILL & SWEET somewhere but Nicky is going to contact the man who found it to enquire further. God ! I think I'm going mad !!!
DogLostFergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
MillieVW .. what was the sound of the barking? Jan & Paul said she has a very low bark, seemed quite distinctive. Perhaps worth you talking with Jan & Paul? Moogie ... I wasn't there but I think it was found on the first search (Wednesday) when searching round the stream and woods by the St Genny's path (through the black kissing gate below the parking area).

Thats strange the papers havent replied. I know several articles on dogs lost on holiday. They dont usually write about general lost dogs but will if its more unusual. I would try ringing them and speak to them directly if you can Jan.
Heard via Nicky that fur similar to Lexi's has been found at the opposite end of Crackington from where she went missing. I am trying to find out exactly where it was found. I think Nicky has sent JanJan a photo so they can check it over
DogLostMillieVW - Area Volunteer, West Wiltshire
I've sent a message and photo to my son and asked him to strike up a conversation. Hubby works in Bath too so he'll see if he sees the dog again. Both times that I saw the dog it was barking and clearly didn't want to be there, it was barking for quite a while and with minimal interaction from the ladies with it. More like a noisy accessory :-/
DogLostFergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Hazel... thanks for that. Yes I think it would be a good idea, they wouldn't do it without getting permission and I couldn't get any reply from the two numbers they gave me. Even if you can't get them to say yes, perhaps there will be somewhere outside prominent enough to put a poster. The other's were really helpful, and definitely said they would. Anyone living near the Exeter Moto please? They wanted someone to come in with the posters (no printer). Thanks Hazel, I didn't send one to Michaelwoods so that would be great if you could x

It's not in the area but I went to Bath on Friday and there was a red chow with a group of young ladies. I had my daughter with me and like to point out different breeds, was quite excited! I had to go back to Bath late yesterday afternoon and saw the same group, same dog, wandering about. It really stuck in my mind. They looked touristy. My son is in Bath everyday, I'm going to ask him to keep an eye out, see if he can strike up conversation x
Mads
JanJan, have you tried the Cornishman? They ran a piece on Jay when he went missing and I had lots of local reports of sightings as a result of that one article. It reaches so many.
JANJAN
hi Millie , Don't know how to answer that really , The Chow is not a popular dog in this day & age . go back to 1950's/ 60's and they were more common . So to see any Chow is unusual , making them quite expensive.
DogLostMillieVW - Area Volunteer, West Wiltshire

Someone on Facebook has said they've seen a very similar dog being walked by a man around park bottom Illogan. I have asked if she could put a couple of posters up and keep a look out. Maybe take a photo next time if possible. Anyone else able to get some posters up around here?
JANJAN
Thank you , thank you , thank you all ... We are trying to remain focused as this may not lead to anything ? here's hoping though xxxxx

My half brother lives in Westward Ho! So I'll ask him if he is aware of any chow owners there. I'll also ask if he would be willing to put some posters up x
DogLostFergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
I have sent poster links by email to Gordano services (still awaiting permission), Tiverton Services, Taunton Dean Roadchef North and Southbound (very helpful there) and Sedgemoor Welcome Break (also very helpful).

Just a thought. Does anyone live close to a motorway service station, or eating places along the 361 Link Road from Barnstaple to Tiverton? All places where someone could be travelling home from Cornwall. Posters there would get more people looking out for her. X

Just let me know if there's anything else I can do. It's about a 25 minute drive for us up to St. Gennys and I can leave at the drop of a hat (luckily for me I'm self-employed, so generally at home). Wishing for good news, and very soon xxxx

Mads . Thank you so much for going to Crackington Haven today ... There's always 1 who gets stroppy , well done for putting him in his place. We are at a guessing game stage as to whether she is lost or has been found & taken !I have been preparing emails & letters ready to send tomorrow to numerous outlets ie. dog wardens, vets, rescue & rehoming centres, dog groomers in the hope that someone will know something of LEXI'S whereabouts .. We have to do something at this end as for now we cannot be in Cornwall & we just don't know where to look for her . All we can ask is that everyone can Facebook & Tweet to the whole of the UK as someone somewhere MUST know something about where she is!! She is too distinctive to just disappear. Please carry on doing all you can to bring her home .. Thank you all xxx Thank you Hazel keep TWEETING !!

Hi JanJan, Paul and fellow volunteers. We spent all afternoon in Crackington Haven hoping for a glimpse of your girl (though we knew this would not be likely), but mostly trying to keep lines of communication open with locals and holiday makers. Everyone's done a great job of postering up there as only one person, out of the many we spoke to, hadn't heard about Lexie. Lots of holiday makers are keeping their eyes peeled for her. One guy got short shrift from me when his only concern was whether we were going to take the posters down as they were untidy. I was pretty smug when he said we wouldn't have any hope of finding Lexie now and I was able to point to Jay and say that he had been lost for 11 weeks and here he is!!! I'll go back in a few days to make sure we keep up the momentum with the people who are local and likely to spot her. Love Mads xxx
JANJAN
Thanks everyone for all the help & support we are getting... Tomorrow is Paul's birthday and he always gets a present off Lexi, sadly this year the only present he would want is Lexi herself .. You never know I could get to Cornwall & back in time for me to give Lexi to him as a present !!
DogLostBobble - Area Co-ordinator, East Devon temp covering East Sussex
Jan and Paul you are never far from my thoughts as of course is Lexi. As well as the great work going on where she was lost, everybody reading this needs to print off at least one poster and pop it up on a main road, a petrol station anywhere that those travlling about the country might see it and recognise her. also spread the word to vets and dog wardens far and wide. I will be creating some little road signs to pop up on the approach to the Bath & West Show that is starting near me in a few days. I'm leaving the dogs until the last minute and of course I'm praying that Lexi won't be on it, but with her mum where she belongs.

Please pop up a poster - your poster could be the one to make the difference.
Mads
Hi JanJan, no, we moved here last year, there's nowhere else I'd rather be. When we lost Jay near Lands End we lived in the South East, 300 miles away from where he was lost. It was a nightmare, but miracles do happen x
JANJAN
Mads Do you not live as far away as you used to when you lost JAY??
JANJAN
Bless you I am so grateful for your support ... It is like something is missing in my heart . I truly was her mum and I know she needs me but I can't find her to help her .. We need a miracle !

I'm definitely heading up to St. Gennys tomorrow. I'll walk in the woods and head back along the coastal path. Are there any feeding stations that need to be checked or stocked? I'm only about 17 miles or so away from the area so am happy to do anything I can to help. JanJan, I know what you're going through, that was me 18 months ago. Thinking of you x

Hi Julie b we stayed in a cottage and this and surrounding houses have all been checked and checked again. When we go home I will contact groomers and ask the question. If they care what she looks like they will need to keep on top of her grooming as it is difficult , almost impossible to do her yourself . thank you for this valid comment x

Hi moogie .no one was at home but I have contacted " chip " company and they still have her as missing .thank you for highlighting this and thank you and everyone for their continued effort and support . we go back home tomorrow but will carry on doing what we can from there also knowing that help will continue in Cornwall and nationwide. bless you all for your help xx

I am sorry that Lexi is still missing. Just a thought - would it be worth contacting all dog groomers in the area as if someone had Lexi (hopefully not though) she would need to be groomed in the very near future. Also was she staying on a caravan park ? If so could she be lying low underneath them during the day and coming out at night when it is quiet ? I do hope she is found safe and well soon xx
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Thank you Mads. How can we forget you and Jay! Hope you're feeling better soon

Just a comment from a Facebook friend and want to make sure this has been covered. This is what she asks:
''I was just wondering if lexie was picked up the day she went missing and chip checked would there be anyone at home to answer the call to say she had been picked up if not is there anyway the owners could find out all missed calls for the time they were away from home''
Mads
I am so sorry I was too poorly to attend today and that there was no sign of Lexie. I just want to add to Moogie's comment about staying positive. Many wonderful DogLost members will remember me, or more likely my dog, Jay, from 2012 when he went missing from a holiday cottage near St. Buryan. It took 11 weeks but with the help and support of the dedicated DogLost team, we finally got him back safe and sound. Praying for a sighting and similarly positive outcome for you and your girl very soon xxx
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Thank you to everyone involved today with the search. I'm so sorry it didn't end in finding Lexie, but at least that area has been thoroughly covered. Postering now further afield around the Crackington Haven an beyond is the next step. We need some sightings now. Please show yourself Lexie. It's time to go home.
Thinking of you both, Jan and Paul. It must be very difficult for you but please don't give up hope. Dogs have been found when there seems little or no hope is left. We will continue to spread the word and search until she's found.
DogLostFergal - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Just wish so much that it could have been a better outcome today. My heart goes to you Jan and Paul, you have tried so hard, especially after your op too. At least we know she is not likely to be lying hurt anywhere around that area now. It is very thick gorse and bracken but I did see that people were looking through it with their sticks. Not nice that the posters are being removed so quickly at the field though. We are still here and still searching and spreading the word. I agree with Red Alert, the word needs to be spread further now. XXX
Red Alert
A massive thank you to those that searched for Lexie today. Although we didn't find Lexie we do know that her owners and others have done everything possible to trace her in and around Crackington Haven. So much sharing, postering and networking means that Lexie will remain in the minds and hearts of the locals for some time to come and may still be found by them or by visitors. It makes sense now to continue to spread the search net for Lexie across the UK. So please share her details everywhere you can. This distinctive, beautiful girl may be somewhere near you x
Kathy
I am so sorry we didn't find Lexie today. We will continue to spread the word in the local area and will keep our eyes peeled. We're thinking of you.

Wishing you all the best of luck with the search on Saturday. The worst case is you should be able to identify another feed station location. Will be thinking of you and I hope the weather is kind.

I'm working tomorrow so unfortunately can't come but good luck and I hope Lexie is found. I'm bumping her page due to the search tomorrow
DogLostMax - Area Coordinator, Cornwall, Volunteer Durham & Ireland
I cannot make it on Saturday, but I hope loads turn up & something positive comes out of it. ( Sadly I have a committment I cannot change.)

New search organised for Saturday 24th May @ 11.00am Crackington Haven car park - if free please help & show up.
Keep spreading the word, a local farmer helped yesterday find another safe for us playing happily in his field and went to find the contact number off poster nearby, so keep positive hopefully we'll get Lexie soon. Best of luck!Last edited: 2014-05-22 17:09:35 by Tiana
JANJAN
Hi, just commented on Bude police page saying that there is a search on Saturday .. Asking for any help offered ?
JANJAN
Well ! Are some people sick or what ?? had a crank call tonight from an idiot fooling me saying he had got my dog .... lets hope something like this never ( or does ) happen to him ... of course no phone number to trace ... We will be back in Crackington tomorrow armed with laminated posters & determination to carry on searching for our beautiful Lexi .We Have been advised by Jenny with Tiga that we could be looking at a search area of 7 miles . If this is a 7 miles radius it is a massive area that will probably be impossible to cover . But we will do our best with the help of all you wonderful people coming together to help us too! See you tomorrow xxx Last edited: 2014-05-21 21:45:54 by JANJAN
Red Alert
Just returned from the feed station and the farmer has closed the field off and has moved his cows in there. This means that the feed station cannot continue as we cannot put dog food down in case the cows eat it. A scenting article has however been left but came home feeling very sad as the posters clearly say this is feeding station but I guess the farmer has to farm. Tonight another thorough check has been carried out behind the cottage Lexie went missing from. Not heard back from the ranger for the National Trust but will follow this up again tomorrow.
Red Alert
Hi Owl yes this has been done but there are no prints, so frustrating. Today I have left a message for the Head Ranger for the National Trust to contact me as there are quite a few National Trust Tenancies in the area and he will know the area
DogLostOwl- Area Co-ordinator, Sherwood Forest
Have you tried a sand trap for pawprints at the feeding area? Difficult as it dries out and blows around in this weather. Maybe a mud trap would work better here. What you do is spread mud over a flat area round the food, dampen it and then look at what pawprint you have. If it is fox or badger or even hedgehog taking the food, then you will be able to tell.
DogLostBobble - Area Co-ordinator, East Devon temp covering East Sussex
The best bet would be onnce Jan and Paul are back to set up a rota to watchthe feeding station from a short distance.

A camera was obtained to use in the search for Pringles could you not get to use this ?

Red Alert
Nicky has just returned from the feed station and all of the food has gone. This particular area will need more surveillance as we can not be sure its Lexie thats eating it however the possibilty remains that she is! A search has now been set up for Saturday 24th May from Crackington Haven Car Park at 11am. The Cornish Gaurdian is sending a photographer down so hoping for a good turn out. The poster for the search is on this link https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152865786091562&set=a.10151260781811562.557548.594701561&type=1&theater please share & help if you can.

Just to say that Paul & me are coming back down on Thursday to stay until Sunday so that we can carry on trying to find Lexi .
Your continued help & support is AMAZING ... Thank you all !

If there is anyone in Cornwall or coming to Cornwall who can help in a search this weekend please ring/text my mobile with your name etc, so we can get an idea of numbers. 07973 775652,Thanks
DogLostMax - Area Coordinator, Cornwall, Volunteer Durham & Ireland
Red Alert, thanks for all you are doing. I know the area is vast & so more volunteers are needed to help with the search. Will share again on fb.
Red Alert
Just returned with helper Nicky from the food station and all of the food had gone. The area was undisturbed which would be unusual if it was a fox or badger as they tend to root around for every last bit but the stones were as they were left apart from one. More food has been left. New laminated posters have been put up on the gates and a poster is on the garage of the cottage where the owners stayed. Photo's have been taken of the area but not in the woods as a thunder storm prevented this tonight. I will send Lexies owners the photo's and will also post them on Lexies FB page. At the weekend we hope to have volunteers to post poster through every door in Crackington Haven in the beach area and and the surrounding area. We are also trying to organise another search party for Saturday. Jenny with Tigga is being kept upto date. I will visit the woods tomorrow during the day to take more photo's. Have suggested to owners that we start to spread the net of the search further just in case someone has picked Lexie up and has travelled home with her. Still lots to do and still lots of hope xLast edited: 2014-05-19 22:14:12 by Red Alert
JANJAN
We had an idea about empty holiday homes .. If you know of any near you perhaps ? if they could be included as possible places that Lexi may have got trapped or stuck or locked in .. Perhaps check the gardens if allowed to ? Thank you !
JANJAN
When we get down later this week we will try & get to as many holiday sites that we can to display the posters . We did put on a couple of sites when we first started last week but probably not enough .Great idea , thank you Owl.
JANJAN
We have had more posters printed this morning & are in the process of laminating them ready for when we come back down to continue the search for Lexi .We are overwhelmed with the support & encouragement we have & are receiving. My niece has continued to Tweet & Facebook & has just had a reply from Debbie Matthews ( Bruce Forsyths daughter) who had her two Yorkies stolen .She has been sharing Lexi's info so we can spread the word . She is asking everyone to sign a petition to make it compulsory for VETS to scan all dogs that they see in their practices . She needs a lot of signatures to be able to take it to the government for consideration , so please sign it if you can !Once again paul & I would like to say thank you for helping to find our little one !

Done as requested. Have posters gone to every caravan and chalet site in the area? People on holiday don't always have net access.

We have been emailing with attached photo of Lexi to several local kennels around the Bude area to make them aware of Lexi being missing .My neice has been tweeting & facebooking to as many people , business's & celebrities ,ie, Simon Cowell ( for his love of dogs ), Kirstie Allsopp, Joss Stone, Caroline Quentin , Phillip Schofield, Dawn French & more as I believe that they live around the Cornwall area. I have collected some of Lexi's fur from around the house & an item of my clothing (unwashed) & parcelled it ready to be posted first thing tomorrow for Red Alert in the hope that they will be useful if we can get Jenny & Tiga to help track for Lexi. The " CHIP " company are aware of Lexi being missing & I rang them again today to confirm they have that information . I contacted Bude Police but was informed that they no longer take details of lost / missing dogs. Tomorrow we are going to get more posters printed & lamenated ( to keep them dry )ready for when we come back down & put them all over the area again . Paul & I are at the moment totally relying on the wonderful people of Bude & Cornwall to still be actively searching for Lexi. We are so grateful to all you animal lovers for helping us in our HOURS of need .It is so sad being at home without our best friend sniffing around & nuzzling us. We thank you all again for your help & support . Please come out of hiding Lexi ... Your Roast Chicken is waiting for you !

Team Lexie are doing everything possible for Lexie until you and Paul return. I'm hoping she's finding the food being left daily

Well done team Lexi!
JANJAN
We want to thank all of you lovely people for all the help and support you have given us since our bestest friend ever went missing .She truly is a beautiful dog with the nicest temperament ever . We tried our hardest to find her but it seems an impossible task to try and cover the ground and terrain she may have got lost ( or injured ) in . We unfortunately had to come home as I, JAN ( LEXI's MUM ) have to go into hospital for a small operation but we will be back down as soon as humanly possible . We cannot imagine our lives without our precious little one !! Please if you are walking in this lovely part of the country look out for our LEXI . We are available to contact at ANY time ... There is a substantial reward for her safe return to us .. PLEASE HELP & THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH !xxxxx

Fingers crossed Red Alert Dogs that it is Lexie and it won't take long.
Red Alert
Tonight we returned to where where the dog poo was found Thursday and Friday and there is more dog poo in this particular area. A scenting towel was left there by the owners. We have now set up an area with dog food on a base of soil brought to the site so that we can see paw prints. This will be checked nightly.
DogLostBobble - Area Co-ordinator, East Devon temp covering East Sussex
I have alerted the owners of the holiday cottage we stay in when we visit Crackington Haven. As well as a delivery driver that comes down that way. Feel so hopeless being in Somerset, but so pleased there is plenty of local help.

UPDATE ON LEXIE - Lexies owners have spent hours and hours searching for Lexie around the coastal path at Crackington Haven. On the Monday (12th May) she went missing there was a sighting of her on the coastal path beside Old Cottage in Crackington Haven. This is over the bridge past the pub, up the hill and on your left hand side. The area has been saturated with posters but there have been no further sightings. On Thursday a search party with helpers/locals took place and a walker reported hearing a dog whimpering in the woods behind St Gennys church. Barking was then heard on 3 separate occasions in the area surrounding the woods behind St Gennys church. The stream area was concentrated on all day yesterday but no further barking was heard. Lexies owner picked up what looks to be some of Lexies fur and this was found on the ground between St Gennys church and the woods/stream. The woods are so dense that Lexie could have got caught up but despite listening and searching there has been no more to go on. In addition food was left both at the stream and inside the field that meets the coatal path. The food at the coastal path had been eaten by Friday morning. On behalf of her owners I am asking that everyone continues to share Lexies details and ask if you could print off a DogLost poster to put up in your area. If you are in Crackington Haven please spread the word and if walking on the coastal path from Crackington to Bude please keep an eye open for her. Her owners have done everything possible to find her and have now had to go home but will be returning to the area shortly. An article/information has been sent to the West Briton & Cornish Guardian Newspaper.
Red Alert
Dog hair the same colour as Lexie has been found, very downy hair, so not from a sheep (I own sheep). Food eaten at the top gate but not at the woods. Returned back from the woods at 10pm. No more barking has been heard. BBQ was used in the wooded area but no noises heard. Search will continue and Facebook sharing will also continue to keep raising awareness. The area is saturated with posters and local people are being fantastic spreading the word.
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Jenny & Tiga are in Scotland for a week and K9 searchdogs need a positive sighting to track.
Owners and Red Alert are having a BBQ in the wooded area and sitting quietly to listen foa any noise. Thinking she may have become stuck in the brambles.
DogLostMax - Area Coordinator, Cornwall, Volunteer Durham & Ireland
Good luck to everyone who is up there searching. Come on Lexie, show yourself.

now a den has been found can the tracker dogs try
DogLostMoogie - Area Volunteer, Cornwall
Received this message from the owner yesterday after the search where they found a den: the "den" is by the stream as is the fur . the area is part of trail that goes by side of St gennys church through a field & down a steep slope then you cross the stream into a wooded area this is the area of "den".
HAve suggested a bbq in this area today. Owners are supposed to be leaving today but have been offered a static caravan for a couple of days

Not you Moogie that option has been removed so I have put it in the OTHER INFO box as that appears on the poster.

Not sure if it's me! But I'm trying to add there is a reward for her safe return but I can't find the option. Any coords able to help ?
DogLostBobble - Area Co-ordinator, East Devon temp covering East Sussex
Please bare in mind that sighting was on Monday morning 11am 12th May, three days ago. Owners followed it up quickly and have searched that area. I think the dogs need a more recent sighting or a den in order for tracking to work.
Red Alert
Just about to leave the search when we stopped walkers to explain that Lexie was missing and they told us that they had heard a dog whimpering in the wood not far from where we had stopped them. The search has now resumed and everything is crossed that this is Lexie x

Owners have had some posters printed and are putting them up and dropping into pubs etc. I also advised to talk to delivery drivers, postmen and milk lorries. They are also going to stop at the school bus drop of point and talk to the driver and give him a poster. Lexi went from the main road in Crackington Haven and there has been a possible sighting on Monday morning along the South West Coastal Path in the Bude direction, they have been concentrating their search along there.

Moogie, I'm sorry I jumped on this one, I did not realise you lived near Crackington Haven until the owner told me you had phoned as well.

Possible sighting in Bude was not Lexi, another Chow.
