You have to let admin know...luckily someone has alerted me...we dont have time to read every post on every dog...tx
Skywalker99
Is there a reason she can't be bumped for one year missing?
Skywalker99
Please can she be bumped for one year missing?
Sandrine
Yes a year has gone and still no news... glad to see she hasn't been forgotten but sad to say noone has spotted her. Thank you for your support. Sandrine
Skywalker99
Could Rio be bumped for one year missing?
Skywalker99

Woody's Mum I can't get that link to work but if it is the Toller in Leigh Dogs Home it isn't Rio. Thanks and keep looking x x
KateC
Sandrine - if you search Preloved for "duck tolling" you will see the advert mentioned below. It is apparently a 10mth female Toller X but worth a look.
Woodys mum
Could somebody check this one please? Looks very much like her? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=435761529950180&set=gm.1698364550423440&type=3&theater
Sandrine
Hi I could not see the advert you mentioned, I may not be looking at the right place. Could you please let me know when you saw the advert? Sandrine
Sandrine
Thank you very much Sophie, I will call them
sophiesuds
Just seen a dogs trust advert on preloved stating they have a duck tolling retriever in their London branch. Maybe worth a call, doesn't say which branch but sure they could tel, you. Fingers crossed.
Sandrine
Thank you, that's very much appreciated.
Shanti Lass
I work at a vets in Wimbledon and we have been watching for any sign of her. Unfortunately nothing so far but our clients are aware and always keep an eye out on the common for you.
Sandrine
We are so touched that 3 weeks on you are still looking out for her! Thank you so much for your help and caring attitude! Sandrine
KateC
Got through to kennels, thought it was worth a try ringing and they picked up - they don't have her or any dog resembling her :( they do routinely scan for microchips so if she was to go there she would be identified straightaway x
Adrian Baughan
I have called the Kennel and it's closed so sent an e-mail of this dog lost page just asking for confirmation whether they have a similar dog. The kennel will microchip any dog before re homing anyway so it seems highly unlikely that Rio will be there - but just in case I am checking.
Adrian Baughan
Sally123, Can you tell me where you have seen this news about a similar dog taken to Milton Keynes? Can you post a link etc so it can be checked. If there is a pic I can identify a Toller easily enough? Did you visit this kennel? I see that the Kennels is for re homing so they would have to be pretty useless at dog wardens and Kennel, not to scan Rio's microchip, but it's not inconceivable unfortunately.Last edited: 2015-11-03 17:24:36 by Adrian Baughan
sally123
i can't swear by it, but am sure I saw a very similar dog that had been found in Northants and taken to Forest Lodge Kennels in Milton Keynes. Would be worth checking this out.
Sandrine
Good morning, I thought you were referring to a cctv in the commons. Thanks for all your advice, I have already done everything you suggested and have not given up! We really appreciate everybody's help and concern.
Lenka
Hello, I was refering to CCTV from shops and businesses in the area as you mentioned on Rio's facebook page. As she has run off after something she will most likely return to the same spot where she last saw you even weeks later. It is worth putting down your piece of clothing to leave your scent at/near the spot where you lost her. The dogs were found waiting by the piece of their owner's clothing for the return of their owner. Also returning to the spot and calling her as often as possible would be a good idea. Putting up posters around the lake especially would also be worth considering so she sticks in people's minds and they recognize her. Do not give up!
Sandrine
Hello

May I ask which CCTV Are you referring to? No one was talking to me at the time, she chased something and then disappeared. Many thanks for your message. Sandrine
Lenka
Dear Sandrine, have you had any response from CCTV? Were you talking to someone when she has gone missing? There have been cases of people distracting owners while someone leads the dog away. Also advetising REWARD might be worth considering if she was taken by someone to prompt them to return her. I had my dogs missing at Wimbledon Common myself so share your pain and despair. I got them back thanks to DogLost and kind people who go out of their way to help out at times like these. It seems hard to believe she would not be spotted by someone by now! She is a beautiful dog and I hope from the bottom of my heart she is found soon. Last edited: 2015-10-23 21:53:34 by Lenka

1.5k shares, so we're getting there! Shared to Harvey's Army South / Lost & Missing Pets London & local group Dogs of Tooting Common (SW17) Shared page to public 🐾

Just a thought, when checking found websites, check collie cross, cross breeds and the like. Not everyone will be aware of tollers and she may have been logged incorrectly. Hope there's some good news soon x
Adrian Baughan
The facebook page URL is https://www.facebook.com/NSDTRRio The name of the page is missing Toller Rio. Please like and share the page (so all information goes with it including the doglost link) like crazy including to doggy group pages especially if they have reasonable numbers.

What is the face book name so we can share please
WestWing
I have shared with my Nordic Walking instructor and group who are on the Common several times every week and will also keep an eye out. Everything crossed for some good news soon x
Sandrine
Yes thank you for the suggestion re face book, Rio's breeder has just set it up. Thank you also to the Toller Club. It is very comforting to have so many of you on the look out for Rio. we are all very grateful.
jillhughes
So sorry for you. This must be such a worrying time. We have a toller who can be a bit of an absconder so we are sending you positive vibes for a safe return of your beautiful girl.
Chi-wow-wee (Sarah)
Hope you are reunited soon 🐾 I have shared to group > Furzedown Pets - Lost & Found..... We are local to Tooting Common & I know some of our members use Wimbledon Common too x
Adrian Baughan
Have you thought about starting a specific facebook page, perhaps with her breeder, so that sharing can get widespread very quickly (in case Rio is no longer local). We did this for a previous missing Toller Harvey. Also an adult pic rather than a puppy pic would be better if you have one. So sorry for you :(Last edited: 2015-10-21 12:47:38 by Adrian Baughan

I am on the committee of the Toller Club of Great Britain. I have already posted on our forum and we have shared on Facebook throughout the Toller community. Is there anything else we can do?
Sandrine
Dear all there are sadly no news apart from her being spotted on Frlday night close to Canizaro Park. We are so grateful for everybody's help and all your encouraging words and thoughts, you are all so kind. Thank you. We have contacted all the wardens as well as many organisations, etc and an ad will be placed in local newspapers this week.
jackie
I walk at the common everyday and today I put up 15 posters of Rio. Praying for her safe return xx
Lenka
Very concerned about poor little dog and her owners. Have there been any news? We are keeping our eyes open and praying for her safe return.

Thanks for the updates, will be on the lookout when we are up there. I assume Battersea, the various local borough dog wardens, vets etc have all been made aware too?
Sandrine
Yes it is Queensmere area Thank you all for your help and advice and suggestions.

altered tweet........RIO Ginger/White Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever MISSING http://bit.ly/1QE9w4F Queensmere Lake #Wimbledon Common #SW19 Plz RT
Wimbledon and Putney Commons
Our understanding is Queensmere.
BlackLab
Do we know which pond? There are several on the Common - the most well known are probably Kingsmere (next to the A3, north of the Windmill), Queensmere (immediately below the Windmill) or Rushmere (on the open area closest to Wimbledon Village) - could make a big difference to which way she has headed depending on where she was. There are underpasses under the A3 near Kingsmere for example, so could have headed over to Putney Heath around the Telegraph pub, or even possibly into Richmond Park.
