Hi Caroline just wanted to send a hug and say dont give up. This happened to me some weeks ago and I was devastated never thought I would see my dog again but I got him back after nearly a month.
I put him on the National Pet Register and put posters everywhere. My local
school told all the kids at Assembly. He was on the Radio twice. Notified all the
local kennels and the dog warden. After a couple of weeks hearing nothing I
printed off hundreds of leaflets and handed them out at the local market, and
A local Christian centre has a small community cafe and they put the details
out on the tables and that paid off I had a call from someone who
claimed he had bought my dog and wanted a £100 for him. I agreed but he
wanted me to meet him on my own at a really dodgy area so I refused, he
then said he would bring the dog to me but didnt turn up. He phoned again to
give me an address so I sent the police but he did not live there. The following
day he phoned again to ask me to meet him at a local stores Carpark I agreed
but arranged for the police to be there. He turned up but with three very dodgy
looking lads. I told him I would not pay the £100 but would give him the reward
offered, fifty pounds. When he realised the police were there he agreed and
I got my dog back.
I think its important to keep trying, posters get ripped down, put more up let
everyone know that you are looking for your dog. I do hope you get him back.
Good luck, Meg
This Forumite needs your suggestions
He got his money back after MSE intervened
