We've lost Jaffa, our big, orange, brindle greyhound boy today. He bolted from the car after a walk in the park. I've contacted the dog warden, the local vets and rgt rescue centre and put him on the dog lost site but i can't seem to add a photo. Anything else I should do?
It's so cold tonight and I'm so worried. We've had an army of people looking for him for the last 4 hours, I'm sick with worry.
He went missing today from the Lichfield area WS13 7QH.
I can't see him up on www.doglost.co.uk yet but certainly the best idea is to make up posters and get them up around the area he went missing. Once he's up on the DL site they will send out alerts to vets, helpers etc in your area but really poster, poster and poster some more in order to get the word out in case someone has picked him up and he may have lost his tag. In the meantime email local vets with the poster as well. Hope he's soon home.
I saw this on DogLost earlier and wondered if it was your boy...worst nightmare hoping he comes home soon or at least you get a sighting Dizzi on here lost her girl overnight she might have some advice...xxxx
That's very kind of you. He went missing from Wolsey Road. I have checked all the local parks 10 times over and literally asked every person I've seen. He only normally goes to either Beacon Park or the one off the A51 (think it's called Darwin Park) but I wouldn't advice anyone to go out at night to these areas, especially Darwin as it's pitch black and there are some unsavoury characters about.
We got him from the RGT in april and prior to that he'd been surviving on the streets for 2 months so he is quite resourceful. I'm hoping somebody will have taken him in as he's a very friendly sole for the night and will take him to the local vets tomorrow, fingers and everything else crossed.
I'll be out first thing in the morning again. I've put a lost dog sign up on the island in front of Morrisons, in Darwin Park and one at the Dimbles shops and where he was sighted at 2 pm near Garrick Close. I'll print some more off tomorow and will literally cover Lichfield in them.
Hoping and praying he will be back home tomorrow with a full belly and a big telling off.
Thanks Nettie for sharing the news on facebook, I'm a bit of techno phobe so don't have a facebook account myself. I appreciate your help.
Thanks everyone for your kind words, I know you all understand what our babies mean to us.

missfleur2003: Hello. I am new to this site and noticed that the posts for available dogs seem to be quite old. Some seem to be years old. Are the dogs shown still available.

peggy: Also a brand new greyhound owner, I love her already. It's hard to believe she is 4 years old, I have to keep reminding myself she was in a kennel and not a home. She is a beaut, but goes skits around food, I suppose it was the excieting time of day x

kiri07: I have been concerned with my 7 year old greyhound losing hair on her thighs, but it looks like it is a normal thing. She's losing a little in a few other places too. I saw someone say something about vetzyme condition tablets? I also heard organic oat

greylover68: Can I shout out advice re fireworks! Rock Rose which is a Bach’s Flower Remedy works fantastically! My great big big is petrified but a few drops of Rock Rose and he’s calm within minutes. It is for fear so would help with other things too.
