Mon 11 Sept: We had a reported possible sighting of Rocket today, along Lincoln Rd toward Triangle Rd. This matches a report in the same spot in July. Either it's a local dog similar to Rocket who's wandering or it may yet be Rocket. If you know a similar local dog which this may be, PLEASE LET US KNOW. In addition to the woman who called - who saw this dog around 4.30pm today - lots of other people must have seen this dog!

Previously: TBC but seems there may have been possible sightings of Rocket in the Candia Rd area Mon morning of 21 Aug and same area in the afternoon a few days before. This is a semi-rural area, a fair way out from Lincoln Rd motorway exit but feasible.

ROCKET is a 1 yr old, medium size, short-haired tri-colour (black, white & tan) male heading dog.
Rocket is de-sexed, microchipped and registered on both the Council National Database & Companion Animal Register.
Rocket's a 'rescue' dog - he does not know the area or anyone hereabouts. While sweet natured, Rocket's extremely nervous.
He may well look thinner and won't be as 'sparkly clean' as in photos.

Lost since Tuesday 11th July from the Lincoln Rd Century Centre near the Euro Deli / Tower Cranes parking area.
This is by the Lincoln Rd North Western motorway exit and just before the Lincoln / Triangle / Central Park Drive traffic lights / major junction.
We believe he's still close, may be just beyond the car park in the quiet fields either side of Central Park Drive, but may have headed well away in any direction.

He is sure to panic and run off if chased so please stay quiet, calm & still - approach casually if a chance; please don't chase him (unless very confident you can get hold of him); especially, please be mindful of roads/traffic and other hazards.
Please call ASAP if sighted, or text & we'll call you: 021 575 111 ; 0274 575 999

LAST CONFIRMED SIGHTING: very early morning Thurs 20 July near EURO DELI / Tower Cranes carpark.
Previously seen by Lincoln Rd close to Triangle Rd corner and before that, in Lincoln Rd / Central Park Drive area (very close to where lost on Tuesday 11 July).

- Black and tan head (tan cheeks and eyebrows) with a black nose, a thick white muzzle and white band running up through the middle of his face, between his eyes and up through his forehead (with a narrowing and distinctive white triangle/ ā€˜Vā€™ pointing to the right at the very top of his head), then continuing and widening again to a thick white band curving down over his left shoulder.
- Has a big white chest blaze continuing down through inner both front legs, front feet are white
- Back feet are tan, toes are white
- His back is all black
- Tail is black with white tip


Please call: 0274 575 999 ; 021 575 111

Many thanks
