Scruncher is missing, please help!


ScruncherOur beloved English bulldog, Scruncher, went missing on Thursday night (16th January) at about 11pm while out for a walk on the tow path at Barry Avenue in Windsor, opposite Browns Restaurant.

We are extremely worried as it is completely out of character for him to leave our side and desperate for any information that might lead to his safe return.

He is gold and white, seven years old and has bald flanks on his sides (as you can see in this picture, left).

He weighs about 32kg, has a diamond tan detail on his head and, though he was not wearing a collar at the time, he is microchipped.

If you have any information that could help get our boy home where he belongs please call 07437017270, email or contact Dogbusters (reuniting stray dogs and their owners) on 07769972813.

    My heart goes out to you, really hope and pray that Scruncher is found soon.
    Don’t know what I’d do if Booby my Westie went missing, so I’m really feeling for you and keeping my fingers and everything else crossed that somebody sees him and you get good news soon.

    Hi Jill,
    I do hope Scruncher is soon found safe and well. I can imagine how you must be feeling as I have several dogs and if any of them went missing I don’t know what I would do. Your heart must be broken as I know you love your dogs so much.
    Lets hope he is soon found. You have had so much support from everyone, and who ever has him or know,s where he is I hope they have the courage to come forward or let you and your husband know where he is.
    I am hoping like lots of other people that he is soon back with you. Good luck with your searching for him.
    Love to you and your dogs.

    Sorry to hear about your missing hound – hope he is found soon. I worked as a vet nurse for many years so this info may help.
    1. Contact the dog warden
    2.Contact the vets in the area – people tend to take animals to their own vets not necessarily the closest one.
    3.Visit rescue centres – descriptions sometimes vary
    4.Don’t give up hope.

    Hello Jill
    I used to breed boxers and, currently have a dad and his son. When we had 7, they got out and, although they were only missing for a couple of hours, it is absolute torment. The police were excellent and drove me around town looking for them, so I know the police in your case will be taking you very seriously, and doing their best to get Scruncher back to you and Larry and, of course, Mr B – he will miss him terribly. Like you, my dogs are my babies, and I feel so honoured to have them in my life. This cruelty is abhorrent, both for you and Larry and Scruncher, who will of course want to be home with his family. The first thing I did when I woke up on 17/01, was check for an update on twitter. I live in Cumbria, so the chances of my being ale to help locate him are, unfortunately, slim but not impossible. Apart from retweeting/sharing etc., I have put a message on the Workington fb section, as anything is worth a try. A bulldog is a valuable pedigree dog and, consequently, and I know this isn’t much consolation, he will be being looked after, especially if the intention is to pass him on for money. If that is the case, the perpetrator would get more from you, just to get him back! How stupid is that? I know work will, and should, be the absolute last thing on your mind. When these people are caught, they need to be locked up, and treated with the same severity as if the kidnapped was a child. Jill, I think of you and Scruncher many times every day and hope that you get the good news you are waiting for. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. Take care.
    With very best wishes.
    p.s. if there is anything else I can do in the Cumbria area, to bring this even further into the public arena, please just let me know. I don’t expect you to reply to this, as you have too many important things on your mind, which merit your attention.

    Dear Jill, I just can’t imagine your pain and distress at this terrible time. All I can say is that Scruncher’s details are being shared nationwide on Facebook in the hope that he will become too hot to handle and will be returned to a safe place. Sending love and positive thoughts and I pray that you are reunited very soon xxxx

    dear jill sorry to hear about your missing dog, I wonder if he got onto a boat if he was lost on the tow path, its just an idea I wondered if you had considered as the bulldog we had when I was a child used to get on the local bus and into peoples cars and go missing quite often. I do hope your boy comes back safe and sound soon. jenny stanford

    Hi Jill
    Thinking of you and keep praying that Scruncher is making his way back to you xxx Some weeks ago we were in a cafe and a lady came over to me and said she d lost her dog and would i look out for him, he d been missing a while and she hadnt given up and i told her I would look out for him and pray for his safety and speedy delivery.. I had a lot of faith.. She gave me her tel no and I remember thinking how she trusted me and had faith in my prayers…
    The following wk, i got a call from her to say her beloved pet had returned home!!! Amazing and almost against all odds…
    I pray the same for Scrunchers safety and protection and for his reunion with you and look forward to hearing your great news when he comes back to you…xxx That if he is wtih someone, they will be moved with compassion to return him and that God will reveal his whereabouts.. I believe…xx
    Sending a Big hug and lots of love to you and Larry and BJ too
    Love Christine xxxx

    Hi Jill, i know what you must be going thru. Although it has been many years now, our collie ran away after being fightened by hearing shots from a pellet gun. We looked for her every waking hour and one day after nearly six months, we were passing a shop, not 2 miles from our house and the person who had her was inside and had tied her to the railing outside. Just like scruncher she didn`t have her collar on when she ran away and unfortunately all those years ago they didn`t chip dogs. However, after much arguing and crying and proving with pictures etc that she was ours, the couple who had found her finally relented and gave her back to us. They were upset too but could see how much she wanted to come with us. She had been very well looked after for which were so grateful. So never give up hope and we`ll keep praying for you all, Lots of Love xx

    Hi JIll I have a friend who is admin on a pet site in the north of England it has over 12.000 members, long shot but if you could put scrunchers details on the site it may help, it is a truly wonderful site with members who would most certainly look out for your gorgeous dog, If you would like a link to the pet site i will send and you can request to join and add Scrunchers details, even though we are further north there is a remote chance he could be be in this part of the country and 12,00 pairs of eyes watching can only be a good thing, please let me know I would love him to be returned were he so truly belongs, x

    Dear Jill
    Any news on Scruncher? at least he has been chipped so there is hope that somebody may take him to the vet and you can be reunited. I lost my little cat Pushkin just before Christmas, he wandered into my house just before Christmas four years ago and never went out. Not long before left he had been savaged by something with bigger claws than his and was in great pain. The vet gave him mediciene and an easter bonnet to protect his ears. I live in hope that he has chosen to live with a family who will love him as we did. If you believe in the power of prayer pray to Saint Jude patron of lost causes. Thinking of you and praying for a happy outcome.

    Has Scruncher arrived back at home? I hope so.
    Its really difficult when our beloved pets disappear, When my cat Darcy went missing just before Christmas I hand written 30 Notes and pushed them through the whole of my street asking my neighbours to check sheds and outbuildings just in case Darcy had sneeked in…luckily 30 minutes later Darcy popped her head in the cat flat…. Oh I was soooo happy. I really hope whoever stole him realises they cannot keep him forever, as soon as a trip to the vet is needed the microchip will bring hi safely back to you and Larry. I will pray for his safe return – God Bless, Jill would you kindly advise us as every day I pray when I open your blog the words…..Scruncher is back at home where he rightfully belongs.
    Love to you and Larry and your other doggy as I bet he is fretting.
    Lots of Love Tracey xxxx

    Phew.. Where do I start . I am totally overwhelmed by your tremendous love & support.
    Gosh you all know me so well & how much our boys Scruncher & Mr B mean to us. We are so devastated . My heart aches for our beautiful boy. The pain is unbelievable and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. Scruncher was a legend, a unique beautiful loyal boy & is missed madly by Mr B , larry & I. It’s been a long exhausting 18 days and the waiting game continues.
    We have done everything we can possible to get him out there and noticed. We are strong and certainly not quitters and Scruncher will know wherever he his how much we love him and how hard we have worked day and night to bring him back where he belongs safely. I am so sorry for the 1 post to you all but the tears have just flowed by all your heartfelt comments. I will keep you updated if I have any news and will post some beautiful pictures of Scruncher , Mr B , larry & I so you can share our precious moments we had over the last 8
    Tnankyou once again for your love and support

    I have been checking your blog every day since I first heard about your sad news and I have already posted one comment.
    I have just read your post from a few days ago and I just had to send you a few words. I wish I could give you a hug, but this will have to do.
    My Golden Retriever Sam means the world to me and my husband. We also had Ben until 18 months ago and when we lost him I thought my life would end. To us they are like children and we would do anything to protect them.
    I do hope your beloved Scruncher is found soon. You have to be strong and must not give up hope. I know it is easier said than done, but with your husband and Mr B by your side you will get through this.
    You are in my thoughts.

    Hello Jill,
    As a fellow dog ‘mum’ I can’t begin to imagine how worried you must be. Have you contacted Dog Lost, the dog wardens and all local vets. I presume he is microchipped; I have other contact details of a very good dog warden although slightly out of area she is BRILLIANT and set up a ‘text and bone’ scheme for lost/stray dogs that are seen by other dog walkers am a bit nervous of popping details on a public forum, I will let the dog wardens at the local authority I work for know. I have called customer services asking them to send some info through to you in a secure manner and forward my tel no (I am not sure your colleague at the Call Centre fully understood the info I was trying to give her, although very helpful, she said she would try to pass it on to a dept who could send the info securely) and by all means you can pm through my facebook page there are a lot of Clare Hunters mine has the pic of a rescue American bulldog with the poem ‘I rescued a human today…'( I will circulate amongst my friends on facebook most are involved in rescue/dealing with strays) by all means call anytime. I don’t use Twitter. I will also pass on Scrunchers details to our local vets in Henley to circulate amongst colleagues in the Berkshire area. Our thoughts are with you all and Scruncher. Take care God bless x ps I have recently married so email address shows previous surname (haven’t changed it yet it is below)

I’m sure you’ve already thought about this but it may be worth trawling these posts in the search for Scruncher.
