Lottie, a Golden Retriever, went missing on Sunday 27th January from her home in Rowsley, Chesterfield. Lottie is aged 2 years and a much loved pet. She is 2 years old and somebody must have seen her or know something about where she is. If you have any information please let us know and we’ll pass it on straight away.
What to do if your pet goes missing:
Make a flyer with a picture of your pet and send it to all the vets in as wide an area as possible.
Notify all the Councils within fifty miles – lost dogs are handed in to the Dog Wardens where they are found – not where they come from.
Every Local Authority keeps a Lost Dog Register – ring first and then send your pet’s details (your flyer) to each Council. If they have a picture they should check it with the photo they have on file.
Notify the police – just in case – although they no longer deal with stray dogs they may keep a record or have information. The police do still deal with stolen pets and dangerous dogs.
Send a flyer to every dog kennels over a wide area – especially those who take in strays for the council.
Put flyers up in Post Offices, Notice Boards and Newsagents especially those near schools. Children notice dogs and might spot yours.
Try to get details of your lost dog out on the radio, the more people who know the more chance you have of getting your pet back.
Offer a big reward – this is likely to work if your dog has been stolen. Young working dogs are thieves main targets. There is a big demand and they are easily sold.
Advertise in country sports magazines.
Never give up hope – we have found dogs for their owners after more than a year has passed.
