It is great to see so much reunited dogs on the www.lostdogs.ie 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. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/03/05/dog-reunited-with-owner-after-surviving-53-days-in-nevada-desert/

A common query to www.lostdogs.ie relates to uploading pictures of dogs to the site. The answer to the problem is that when uploading images to www.lostdogs.ie 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 puppy@lostdogs.ie or through the contact page and we will pass your details on.

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


March 28th, 2010

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.

www.lostdogs.ie 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”

Three hours? I think that’s a new record Paul!

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!

Lost Dog Reunited Story

September 9th, 2009

Re-posting a great story from a lostdogs.ie member ClaireBoyles – Claire was reunited with her dog Sasha thanks to the site. Great news Claire and we appreciate you telling your story!



I rang the DSPCA, local vets, Garda stations etc but no one had found Sasha. I honestly didn’t think I’d ever see her again and I just hoped that she’d been found by someone who would give her a nice new home & that she was safe.


I received a phone call from a lovely lady called Brenda who had a little brown & white dog who’d been found in the Phoenix park. She asked me did Sasha have a collar, and what colour was it? I told her green leather- I’d bought it in Italy for her last summer. So sorry, said Brenda this collar is black- best of luck finding Sasha. I was really disappointed, but there wasn’t anything I could do.


5 mins later Brenda rang back- her collar IS green :)


I was delighted, I couldn’t believe it!! Sasha had been found!! I can’t remember the last time I was so happy about hearing some news!!


Sasha had been found in the Phoenix park very muddy on Thursday morning, near the President’s residence & one of the members of staff knew Brenda and knew that she had been looking for a dog so they called her. Brenda & her 2 teenage children then set about seeing if anyone had lost a dog, because Sasha was obviously someone’s pet – not a stray. They got onto the internet and found her on www.lostdogs.ie and rang me. :)


If it wasn’t for twitter & the amazing amount of help & support that I received – and people telling me about the websites for lost dogs I would never have found her. I am SO grateful, thank you everyone who helped find Sasha. I am so delighted that there is a happy ending to this story!


As you can see from the picture she is very happy to be at home again. When I picked her up on Saturday I’ve never seen her so excited & delighted to see myself & Goldie. She doesn’t understand how well known she is- this morning on our run someone shouted over to us across the road that they’d seen her in Phoenix park & glad to see we’d been reunited! Let’s hope she’s learned her lesson- I certainly have, she’s not getting off the lead again at night I can tell you!
