It is great to see so much reunited dogs on the site. Users of the site who have lost dogs report that it gives them great encouragement to see so many reunited dogs.

This is a nice story about a reunited dog which was lost for 54 days in the Nevada Desert.

A common query to relates to uploading pictures of dogs to the site. The answer to the problem is that when uploading images to the image must be a a .jpg or .png type of image and not a PDF or other type of non-image document.

Twitter for Lost Dogs, Found Dogs and Dogs Needing New Homes

June 6th, 2011

We first started using Twitter to automatically post your ads from this site back in early 2009. However, Twitter made some changes a few months ago causing the feature to break (Grrrr)…

We were not planning on fixing it but it seems a lot of you are now using Twitter – so after many requests from you our visitors, this is now working again!

Good home offered in Donegal

April 20th, 2010

A member in Donegal is offering a good home to a small young dog to be company for her other dog – whose last companion was stolen. If you can help you can contact us at or through the contact page and we will pass your details on.

We hope to have a “Home Offered” section shortly.

Thank you Enda for allowing us to print details of the e-mail you sent us which concerns the serious problem of stolen dogs.

I have had 3 dog taken in the 6 months, is there some one lifting dogs all the time? We have had dogs at our home for over 40 years and never lost one and in 6 months 3 dogs vanished; 2 Parson Russell’s and a mini Jack Russell, all pure breed but not registered. Does any one know why they are vanishing?
The first 2 went in august. I then bought another Parson dog pup and he vanished last week. hope that when a dog is stolen a picture would be put on our website and our aim is for anyone buying a dog to check the website first – in case the dog they are being offered is actually a stolen dog

A new record?

“Just like to say thanks after three hours of posting on your website we were reunited with our dog thanks again”

Reunited Dog after 5 Months Missing

January 15th, 2010

Lovely email today from Lucia Wilde aka LurcherLover


My lurcher bailey was stolen last march from castlepollard in westmeath. SHE HAS BEEN FOUND!

A wonderful couple in Kilkenny 5 months ago found her in Kilkenny. They only recently saw her picture on the internet and checked to see if she was chipped. They rang me at the weekend and I confirmed it was her.

I wanted to thank the forum for their help, advice and support. I will collect her at the weekend……I am soooo happy to get my girl back safe and sound.

Thanks and warm regards.
Lucia Wilde


Here is a photo of Bailey home now safe and sound after 5 months missing!
