According to post by Blackdog, (now removed), it wasn't a stolen dog. Previous owner came forward.
Sent photo to mobile number to check against Fennel
Springer spaniel bought by someone who thinks it has been stolen. Worth a look.
I agree Blackdog very like Fennel
Have a look at this one on Cavan dog pound Ireland. It's a video and looks like a girl.

This lady has just posted on facebook about a number of dogs found being transported together in 1 car and seized by customs. There were several springers: https://www.facebook.com/brigid.cullen
I suppose Fennel could recently have had another litter recently.Try ringing the number and ask if the mother is available to view .
I know it's a year ago that Fennel went missing but I've just seen an advert on Facebook that I don't like the look of..I haven't asked any questions and could be completely innocent but someone in York is giving away puppies free and the picture of a puppy is remarkably like Fennel with the same markings. There isn't a picture of the mum sadly. Would obviously be a new litter but if Fennel was my dog I might be inclined to check it out, even if it is a long shot:

Have bumped Fennel's page, its a year today that she was stolen, her pups would be coming up to a year old. I hope today is the day that the thieves do the right thing and take her home. Fennel has a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/881948561855895/?fref=ts if anyone would like to join.

Please check this found one out. Found in Wales and says been used for breeding. http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog-blog.php?dogId=89811#.VbI-vNJVhHw Comments off the doglost...Update so far, have spoken to vets, as has the lady from Doglost. They will NOT give any further info other than the general description. No chip number, names, nothing. Please forward info to anyone whose dog this might be. They will have to contact vet and confirm info on chip themselves. This is not one of the three stolen from Deenethorpe.

24/07 update: Chip number defunct. No-one at address (note left) and dog hasn't been to local vet (that she was chipped/registered at) for a long time.

24/07 update#2: Dog warden has seen the dog now~been used for breeding, doesn't know what a lead is and is very nervous etc. She will have to do her 7 days in pound, but already has a rescue place lined up.Last edited: 2015-07-24 14:42:30 by Babs 21
Dog found. Puppies not found. Was dumped on motorway
A friend of mine has seen a springer, with a springer pup near Braunstone Gym - Leicester... there is a gypsy site there. May be worth checking out...

Checked, not Fennel and looks like reunited xx
Have you seen post of springer spotted in Halifax area - long shot and don't know the sex of the dog seen, but worth a look at photos. Dog has not been caught only spotted.

There is a lady on FB called Jeanette Brown who mentions a dog that looks very similar to this at a lake in Leighton Buzzard. They say very thin and weak and looks as though been out for awhile
Ann Williams
Please check. Markings on dogs head look a lot like Paisley's. It seems to have been assumed dog is a boy, but don't see anything on original ad stating this. What do you think? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10203370418117626&set=gm.749492288502144&type=1&theater
The lady who is helping Fennels owner says that this dog is not Fennel,unfortunately. Thank you everyone for looking though
I am thinking same as comment below. Sometimes they stick an odd photo in of different dog to confuse markings so don't be fooled, usually a blurry photo.
Here is link again. Fingers crossed.
Katy 23
I saw this and it looks very much like Fennel, here's hoping xxx

Fennel is featured in todays Countrymans Weekly
Thank you ladies. Do hope the owner will make a good recovery. xx
Thank you both, I have messaged the lady who is acting on Fennels owners behalf.

Hi, I've checked the Gumtree ad and it's not Fennel. I did ask for the contact number to be updated on here but it hasn't been. Fennels owner is very poorly and unable to deal with any contact, please contact Paula (owners friend) on 07515417966 or I can also be contacted, admin should have my details. Ultimately the quickest response will be on Find Fennel Facebook page. Thank you x
Hi, Admin have tried unsuccessfully to get hold of owner but the Coordinator for the area is going to try to see what she can find out. If successful then I am sure she will update on here. Thank you all for thinking of Fennel.
I have asked admin if they could make owner aware of the latest post on re gumtree advert.
Advert on Gumtree, advertised as a Cocker Spaniel, but clearly a Springer Spaniel. Seller says, he's trying to recoup the money he paid (£500), and wants £375.

Hi, I have 2 more photos that might help, where shall I send them?
DogLostMillieVW - Area Volunteer - West Wiltshire
I'll ask, I've got 3 photos, 2 of them are as above. Fennels tail is full.
Does the owner have any photos of her from behind showing her markings?
DogLostMillieVW - Area Volunteer - West Wiltshire
Can I just clarify that Fennel is microchipped and her owner is still actively searching for her. He has become very ill with the stress of Fennel being stolen again and has a friend acting as contact, please do contact Paula on 07515417966.
DogLostMillieVW - Area Volunteer - West Wiltshire
Thanks Ellie and Gnasher. Hoping to have a poster done to share on Facebook very soon too. We need to get Fennel home, her dad needs her xx
Bumping Fennels page has she is featured in the Burton Mail
The second picture has now been amended to show a clear one of her
Do hope this all helps to bring the news her owner so badly wants
Second picture now deleted as it is confusing
Could this be fennel, for sale on driving dogs Kent?

There are also springer pups for sale in Luton that are about right age to be Fennel's & says mum is available but no picture of mum on this one
There have been rumours that Fennel has been found but the owners hopes were dashed with the recently whelped bitch not being her, so she is still missing
DogLostMillieVW - Area Volunteer - West Wiltshire

Please disregard the photo in the extra image box, I have just discovered it was sent to owners friend as a photo of Fennel on a muddy walk but was in fact a hoax and Fennels owner confirms it is not her. Another clear photo will be added shortly.
There is female for sale on Dragon driving web site, Ashford (Kent i assume) looks very similar, seller has 4 other dogs for sale, surroundings look dubious. Might be worth checking.
Liver and white Springer that looks like Fennel's face markings has been found by Swansea tyres - posted on FB:
Can you please check out Found Dog id 79051 just in case. Karen3094 I will try and ask admin if they can perhaps see if there is another number for Fennel's owner to make him/her aware of your posts. Thank you. Last edited: 2014-12-03 20:42:32 by ClaireC

this is on FB could this be Fennel?Hope you find her soon x
can admin ask Fennels owner about the link below? The owner has been tagged on fb on this on the 28th November, but no replies.... Is there another way of contacting him please?

Hope you get your dog back, and that you will get her microchipped! Can't believe you haven't done this when your dog has already been stolen before.
https://www.facebook.com/Petloglostfound/posts/802794879762829 not sure, but wanted to check just in case! Good Luck xx
http://www.gumtree.com/p/dogs/springer-spaniel-bitch/1090011481 Don't know if this is fennel or has been shared but this dog looks similar hope you find her soon x
http://www.gumtree.com/p/dogs/springer-spaniel-female/1090127472 saw this on FB is this Fennel? I hope you find her soon. x
The link below has been sent on to Fennels owner so they can check it out.
can Fennel's owner check the one out below - looking quickly the white markings don't appear to be on her head however it may be dirt covering any white. Also only Fennel's owner will know whether Fennel has a patch on her side which shows clearly on the found one. This one has also had pups recently I would think.
I've just been sent this link to my Fb group,

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=589196861184381&set=gm.746215575453110&type=1&theater possibly looks like fennel?
Fennel is still missing. The pups will be ready for selling on.
Hi there is a different page set up that has a different picture iof Fennel that doesn't look like her doglost picture - link below


Also if she more like the link picture and not the doglost picture there is this dog found that looks like the dog in the link above - found dog link below
