Rhodesian Ridgeback missing in Javea area

1 Replies

Hello all,Please keep your eyes peeled for POPPY, my Rhodesian Ridgeback bitch who went missing in the Javea/Benitachell area on the 10th of April. I was in Javea on holiday for a fortnight and had to suddenly go back to the UK because my Mum died. I entrusted my dog to a couple who regularly keep dogs for people, and unfortunately she ran off.I spent the remaining days back in Javea after the funeral going to all the pounds, police stations (even the dump to see if her body had been picked up) all to no avail.Sadly I have now had to come back home to France, and my little Poppy is still loose somewhere in Spain.....She is 5 years old and is wearing a black leather collar with a metal medallion inscribed with my surname & my home phone number in France.She is micro chipped, but with a British identichip, so I'm not sure if the Spanish authorities will be able to access my details should they find her.Poppy is a good dog, but is very wary of strangers, and I fear that a week or so in the wild will have spooked her irremediably...Please let me know at mapbesson@wanadoo.fr if you see her or can give me any information that might help me find her. We really miss her.Thank you very much,Amanda Besson

Hi Amanda I emailed this to you directly but just in case you don`t recieve it I have pasted it here as well -

I read your posting about losing your Ridgeback - I help out with a charity called P.E.P.A.

(the helping hands charity) we have to deal with dogs with chips on a regular basis - and as far as I know - you would have to register yourself as the legal owner of the `chip` here in Spain before they would contact you - if the dog was picked up, as they would have no access to the data base in the UK and also they would have no idea what country the chip was from, it cost`s 14 euros to change a chip from one owner to another so i guess it would be about the same to register it from another country - you would have to give an address in Spain and a Spanish phone number and also a passport number or NIE., surely the lady who lost the dog could help you out with that - if the dog has already been picked up by a rescue society they would have to put a denucia on the chip before it was rehomed so I would definantly register over here ASAP if I were you.

We also have a facility on our web site for lost dogs - all the contact details you need on the site www.pepaspain.com .

Hope this is some help.
