Bracco Italiano

Jacob is still missing - can you help?

Back in January this year Jacob went missing. His owners have done everything they can to find him, yet there is still no concrete trace of him. Someone must have him somewhere - quite possibly someone completely unaware of who he is. But since Jacob is microchipped it should be easy to reunite him with his family, who are missing him dreafully. Here's an email I received today about Jacob:

I am contacting you today for your help.

Please help us by looking at Jacob's missing poster attached, he is a rare breed Bracco Italiano, a highly distinguishable dog that could have been advertised in your local paper for sale or offered for rehoming.


Jacob is still missing

Jacob is Orange and white colouring, stands about 27" to the shoulder, entire, was (in January) slightly built, and has a small pea sized lump under the skin on his left shoulder.
Most importantly, he is MICROCHIPPED.

Sad as it is Jacob is still missing some 8 months on, this still torments our family.
