URGENT! Have you seen Jax - East Sussex?

Hi, Unfortunately this is not a very happy story, but we are hoping for a happy outcome.

Jax is a nearly 2 year old neutered boy, salt and pepper and extremely handsome. He comes from a very loving family and enjoys long walks twice daily.

Unfortunately on 11th Sept 2013 Jax decided that it would be fun to chase some pheasants into the woods, nearby where we live in East Sussex. After combing the area for 10 hours that day, there was no sight of Jax.

Despite searching for him everyday, giving out 1000's of posters and leaflets, contacting dog wardens / rescue homes / kennels / Facebook / Twitter / Thunderclap etc, there has only been one sighting of him, near to where we live, (8 days after he disappeared) and unfortunately the gentleman was in a hurry therefore he did not pick Jax up, and by the time we got to where he was sighted, he was no longer there.

We are desperate to find our boy and hope by telling you our story, you can look out for him.

He is micro chipped.

We believe someone may have taken him home and decided to keep him.

Maybe your neighbour has a new dog ? but it not walking it, anything suspicious. Please let me know. Thank you
Sharon

NOTE FROM LINDA AND MAX: What a gorgeous boy, we really hope you find him. To all our readers in the area, please keep your eyes peeled for Jax - even if he is with people, it may not be his true owners.
Sharon, can you post an email address or Facebook page where people can contact you?

Jax..your beautiful Schnauzer..
by: Michele

I've an idea Sharon, but I guess you have done this.. Why don't you contact every vet where the sightings of Jax were as he will need to go to a vet at some stage and get them to read his microchip and that will tell the thieves that Jax is not their dog.. as hopefully they do not know that he is microchipped.. I'll say a prayer for you that he's home with you very soon.. God, I'm sure will be on your side.. I will email you just to keep in touch if that's OK.. I live on my own and have two beautiful minis.. Rebel and Benji, also an 11 year old Australian Silky .. Rambo..they are all microchipped..

Jax standard Schnauzer
by: Steve Winn

On June the 11th it will be 9 months since Jax went missing. We have had 4 sightings, the most recent at the end of February 2014, near Edenbridge, Kent. We have put up posters and walked the area, but still no sign of our boy. We are trying to remain positive, but as the months go by it is getting harder. Jax has a Facebook page which is www. Facebook .com/jax.winn if anyone would like to connect? Thanks for any support, we will get our boy home soon.

The search continues
by: Steve

Jax has now been missing for 12 weeks, and still no sign of him. We have enlisted the help of the local post men, meter readers, local paper, vets and kennels in East and West Sussex, and Kent, but to no avail. We have no idea where he is, so if you know anyone who has recently got a fully grown dog that looks like Jax, please let us know. Many thanks. Steve, Jax's dad.
P>S you can access Jax's FB page at https://www.facebook.com/jax.winn

NOTE FROM LINDA AND MAX:
So sorry there's no good news to report yet, good luck in your continued search.

Jax..
by: Michele

Thanks for replying, and yes you definitely covered all areas and I sincerely hope you find him soon.. I'd pack his favourite food and keep looking even if it takes many hours.. and a dress very warm and camp in a tent and stay in the wood with his food and some essentials for you too. I know it sounds crazy, but you never know he may find you .. Schnauzers have a very strong sense of smell.. that's if you think he ran off in the wood where the pheasants were, over 6 weeks ago.. Another avenue is go to your local large market and maybe there is a stall there selling dogs.. it does happen, believe me.. there was a story a while ago of someone doing this with Bruce Forsyth Yorkshire terriers, they were microchipped and someone noticed and recognised them.. Brucie got them back unharmed..Let's know if Jax is returned or you find him.. maybe he'll find you.. smelling the Chicken out and following the scent..

Jax
by: Sharon

Hi Michele, Thank you for your comments. We have spoken to the farmer and he is looking out for our boy, unfortunately there are 100's of acres of wood and farmland near us, so there is a possibility that he is hiding out in one of the many woods, but I think it unlikely, as I sure someone would of seen him, after over 6 weeks. All the local vets and the microchippers are all aware that he is missing. He has been posted on Dog Lost / Animal Rescue / Stolen and Strayed and we have phoned and emailed nearly all the kennels and rescue homes in the area, think we have pretty much covered it all, now just need to rely on the general public getting behind us and looking out for our boy.

Jax
by: Michele

Oh .. how awful and I do hope you find your Gorgeous boy very soon.. Have you been to your Vet and also there is a website that post photos of Lost & Found.. Pet Log do have records and if Jax has his microchip .. who knows the new owners may have registered him in their name saying they found him on the streets.. it's worth thinking about.. Maybe where he was chasing Pheasants.. the farmer has him on his property.. locked up... !! If it were me I'd go there, as the farmer or game keeper won't know he is microchipped..
Hope you find him..
