Bear story within a poem written by Kelly-Joy Sargent from Animal Lifeline UK

My name is Bear sadly I am no longer here
Above is where I am
where no one can
no longer see me
I am here to tell you my very sad story
For all of you to read

I once lived with my master on the streets
just wondering on just him and me.
Though we had no money
It didn't matter as I knew he loved me as much as I loved him.

But something changed my master became very sad
he told me he could no longer take care of me and no longer
give me what I did need
so one very sad painful day he kissed me as tears filled his eyes
he told me he loved me and to be a good boy
he then left me and my heart broke as I didn't need anything else but only him

As the days past in my cold dark prison cell I kept hearing those final words
ringing in my ears be a good boy bear for me
so just for him I stayed a good boy hoping perhaps he would change his mind and come back to get me
I do anything for him as I so loved him.

I soon landed with another man who I thought was my new master they called him my foster daddy
but little did I know that I would have to leave him soon too
I began to pick up the pieces of my broken heart
I began to give a little piece of my heart to him as he treated me so well
but I could feel he didn't love me or hold me as dear as my old master did
it didn't matter as I felt warm and safe with him.

Then one day I was handed over to other man and although I was confused I had to leave
as I kept my promise and continued to be a good boy so why did I have to leave
I went with this man and as the days past I could feel in his heart that he really loved me
so I gave him my heart and finally in my sad life I was happy again with a home to call my own.
Little did I know that soon to be I would be ripped away from this new found happiness and the love he gave me.

One dark cold December eve someone tried to take me they broke the gate and took me
I tried so hard to get away and when I escaped I tried so hard to find my new daddy
but I got so lost and couldn't find him.
A nice man found me I tried to tell him where I lived and how much I wanted to go back home to my daddy
he seemed nice and told me I would soon find my way back home but sadly it wasn't to be
for you see there was no happy ending to come to me.

I was scanned for a chip as all stray dogs should be they found a chip but for reasons only they do know
They never gave me the chance to go home
they never sent a letter home and never called either as the chip company said never did they contact them for my details so how could they send a letter or make a call when they didn't have my address or the number to call to help save me.

They never tried to send me back home instead they said I was aggressive
I promise I wasn't I was a good boy just as I always promised my old master I would always be
but they said differently so they lead me to a cold dark room held me down shaved my leg and injected me
They took my life and murdered me.

So now you have heard my sad story please share for all to see
let them all see that no stray dog is safe in their evil hands and all the world should see
so they never can get the chance to murder another stray dog like me.





Please share far and wide an ex poundie of ours at Animal Lifeline UK has been stolen
If he indeed has been adopted then will be in the Leigh or surrounding area of Lancashire.

Bear was stolen between 10 and 10.05pm from the back garden when let out for a wee by adopted owner. The gate was lifted off the hinges on the 20th dec 2014
He was later found roaming at approx 10.40pm by an older gentleman walking back home from the pub.
This man took him into his home and then called the out of hours dog warden service.
The dog wardens came to pick him up at approx 11.20 to 11.30pm and took him to Leigh cats and dogs home.
Bears adopted owner finally found out on the 24th Dec after calling everywhere that Bear was at Leigh cats and dogs home they then asked him to pay 85 fee and to pick him up before 5pm that day. Sadly owner didn't get to them in time and by the time he got there they were closed.
He then went back on the 27th to collect bear and was told that they had re homed Bear that morning and he was no longer there.
We all know that this is highly unlikely as he is a mastiff and it would have not been that easy as to re home so quick.
Our greatest fear is that poor Bear has been put to sleep:(
From speaking to the rescue that we sent Bear to they have had several different stories told to them by the dog warden and Leigh cats and dogs home.
Leigh cats and dogs home also can not supply a copy of the section 149 letter which by law they should have sent to the address on the chip.
Bear is reported as stolen and we desperately want to know his where abouts and if he is safe and well.
As everyone knows we at Animal Lifeline UK work incredibly hard to secure safe rescue places for the dogs we help and we are all deeply upset at the prospect that one of our dogs is not safe and no one knows of his where abouts.

Could I please ask that you all share this post and please contact myself Kelly-joy Sargent , Debbie Evans or Stacy Hilton or email us at [email protected] or [email protected] with any information to his where abouts

If by some miracle Bear has been adopted and this post reaches the person that has adopted him please contact us we know its wasn't your fault we just want to know he is safe.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this

Best wishes The Animal Lifeline UK Team:)

Chip company has been contacted and they confirm that there has been no recent change of address and they are now aware that he is stolen and will contact rescue if anyone tries to change his chip details.

Also someone who fostered Bear has been in Leigh cats and dogs home pretending to want to adopt a dog to see if he is still there and sadly he doesn't appear to be there.

He has also been reported stolen to the police.

sadly bear has still not been located and we still don't know what happened to him or if he is safe or not:(

All very odd.
Considering Bear has been with different people, it hasn't been said he is aggressive. Dogs get scared, I know. So assume he us a good boy. The centre has lots of staffys so theN you ask why pts? Perhaps a mess up with paperwork and was moved to another rescue centre? Did finder decide to give him a home and Leigh took that opportunity? But then why not reserve for a home check ...then home? I just started vol work with rspca and they do that. Or had a centre employee chose to give Bear a home? That's why not there? There site is jumping about ... There is one dog similar but sure checked. Is it worth checking nearby vets? Again, can not read Leigh's site. What about starting Just Giving and we get enough for a solicitor visit and letter. But then owners would need paperwork to back up ownership. Is he on DogLost?

Why not liaise with dog lost, generate the posters adding rehomed from Leigh in error .... If allowed ....and you'll get volunteers willing to put up posters around the area. Who was he chipped to as couldn't work that out.

Will leave you in peace now!!

As we at Animal Lifeline UK never legally owned Bear we are very limited in what we can actually do. We have been liaising with the rescue that we sent Bear to and at the moment we are just gathering up all information and evidence and then rescue and owner of Bear will both write a formal complaint to the council which again we are helping with. I have asked rescue to get Bears owner to get Bear on Dog Lost we can't as we don't own him. He is however on dog lost pages on facebook as we can post on them. He is also been posted on a number of sites and we are currently sorting getting posters done to post in the vets and local area to help and try and find him. Police have been called and he is reported as stolen with both the police and chip company. If he has indeed been adopted and they try to change his chip details chip company will notify rescue straight away.

We have a number for a top Dog law solicitor and if after we get a reply back from formal compliant and we are still none the wiser what happened to Bear then we will be seeking legal advise.

Please please don't stop sharing Bear both us At Animal Lifeline UK and Woofers R&R the rescue we sent him to will not let this lay and will not stop until we find out what has happened to him and if he is safe and well. Someone knows what's happened to him out there , someone has the answers we are looking for so we will not stop looking. If someone has adopted him then if we keep sharing its got to find its way to someone who knows of his whereabouts.
Bear wherever you are darling please know that so many of us really care about your well-being very deeply and we won't stop trying to find you.

A letter of formal complaint has been sent and now we just have to await a reply

For all of you that keep asking about Bear please be assured we haven't forgotten about him or given up far from it so much is going on behind the scenes to get the information we require and we are still gathering lots of evidence. As we said before we have been working with the rescue this dog was with very closely and we helped them to write a letter of complaint which we have finally heard back from the council and now we are on the 2nd stage of complaints to council. Everything is sadly taking time as everything has to be done by the book and each stage we go through they have something like 20 days to reply . When the first letter of complaint was submitted we also requested under the freedom of information act for the records re strays which will say the dogs that came in and whether they were re homed or put to sleep , even though they have acknowledged our request for this information its still not been sent but we will just keep plodding on and fighting for poor bear, we haven't given up and we won't until we get all the information we require.
Please try to be patient we are just as frustrated as you all are but we can't make the council reply to the complaints we have sent any faster we just have to wait.
