Be aware - There are professional dog thieves around who steal & sell dogs - or ransom them back to their owners.
Be wise - Get your dog microchipped - it increases the chance of getting it back and you can prove it is yours.
Be warned - Don't buy a dog from a stranger or through a newspaper  advert - you could be buying a stolen dog.

If you have LOST your Border Collie you can contact us and place details on our website - you can also use links at the bottom of this page to contact other organisations who can list your dog as missing.
Please note that we can only accept entries for the LOST DOG REGISTER from the legal owner of a dog.
 We can only accept entries for the FOUND DOG REGISTER from a private individual who is the keeper of a dog that has been found and registered with local dog wardens, a local authority dog warden service or a legitimate registered rescue organisation.
We do not accept entries for the FOUND DOG REGISTER from commercial sources, traders, partnerships or businesses.
If you have FOUND a Border Collie you can contact us and place details of the dog on our website - but first you must contact your local Dog Warden service and register the dog with them and pass their details on to us with the details of the found dog - you can also use the links at the bottom of this page to contact other organisations who can list the dog as found.
This section is for lost or stolen Border Collies / Sheepdogs - to report a lost or stolen dog and submit details for this page or report a dog you have found - e.mail us

Lost - Ben Nevis - Tuesday 24th March approx' 10 am.

Help is urgently needed to locate a Border Collie lost on Ben Nevis.
Romany is an 11 yr old, tri coloured Border Collie bitch. She is hard of hearing and suffers from epilepsy, requiring a daily dose of Epiphen (30mg) which has kept her fits at bay for 3 years.
We had agreed to take Romany, and her sister Niji (Rainbow), in because their lady owner had died and her husband was unable to keep them due to work commitments.
 Prior to coming to us, the husband wished to scatter his wife's ashes on Ben Nevis, a spot frequented and loved by the couple and dogs, while she was alive. He parked at the visitors centre and took the dogs, off lead, up the tourist path, past Achintree (farm).
Romany disappeared into the mists close to a point where the public footpath from Nevis River joins the tourist path up the mountain, below Lochan Meall an t-Suidhe.
She was last seen heading uphill towards the rocks below the Loch, possibly having scented a deer.. The weather was pretty bad, with mist and snow and in spite of immediate searches in adverse conditions, she has not yet been found.
If anyone lives in or is visiting the area, please look out for Romany and contact us if she is sighted.
Romany is wearing a red fabric collar with a disc with her owners details on.
The image below is an old photo of Romany - we have no recent images as she did not come into our care.
The visitors centre, local mountain rescue, local Police, local radio and local authority have all been informed
Anyone with any information, please e.mail us
Updates on any progress - if any - will be posted here - Romany  - File closed. This dog would now be so old it is likely she would have died of old age - like her sister.


Lost - Thurs 5th February 2009 - Silverton, Devon - 10:30 a.m.
JESS - female - 21 months old - tri-coloured border collie - white, tan, brown and black - medium rough coat - wearing a red fabric collar - VERY TIMID
Jess (centre) - front left leg tan and front right leg white

JESS was purchased from a farm in Wales, and she had been with us for ten days. She disappeared from our home in Silverton, Devon on Thursday 5th February about 10:30 a.m. Unfortunately, a new post man left the gate open; she was slightly spooked, and made a dash for it!!  She has been seen within 1 mile of our home, on Friday 6th February. She likes quiet places, and could be sheltering in outbuildings. She is a lovely, gentle dog and we are very anxious to find her.


If you have any information, please contact Mary Southgate on 01392-861140.


Lost - 1st January 2009 - Stoke on Trent

Now re-united with her owners, she was taken into the local pound on 29th January. It is therefore likely that someone had found her and decided to keep her.

People should be aware that a lost dog belongs to someone, not the person that finds it. To keep a lost dog and not report it or hand it in to the dog wardens is not only theft, but may also be causing suffering and grief to the dogs owners. If you find a dog - notify the dog wardens immediately.

Missing from Hanley, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire.
She is a black Border Collie cross
She is 12 yrs old but looks a lot younger.
She has a flash of white on her chest, white tips on her rear paws and a broken tooth on the left side of her bottom jaw.

She is missed dearly by her family.

If found please ring Alan.
