Website of Lost & Stolen Dogs in the UK and Eire

We are here to help you!  If you find a dog, you can check its description against the ones on these pages. If you have lost a dog or had one stolen, you can contact us and we will list it here, free of charge.

Help find these Lost Dogs - you might need help one day

In the interests of space, all dogs missing for over six months have been removed unless the owners specifically asked us to leave them on. Please help keep the site manageable by telling us when your dog is recovered

If you have found a dog use this search engine to see if it matches the description of any of the dogs listed as missing with us - the owners will be very pleased to hear from you if you find their dog. Type the Breed you have found or are missing and click on 'FIND' - this will bring up a list of possible dogs which you can further identify by colour or by other details using 'REFINE'

powered by FreeFind

If you think you have information which could help recover individually submitted dogs, you should make direct contact with the owner, the local police or the Webmasters.
LurcherSearch co-ordinator, Jane, can be reached on 01598 753 563 or you can email kaye@lurcher.org
