Jacob is still missing - can you help?

Back in January this year Jacob went missing. His owners have done everything they can to find him, yet there is still no concrete trace of him. Someone must have him somewhere - quite possibly someone completely unaware of who he is. But since Jacob is microchipped it should be easy to reunite him with his family, who are missing him dreafully. Here's an email I received today about Jacob:

I am contacting you today for your help.

Please help us by looking at Jacob's missing poster attached, he is a rare breed Bracco Italiano, a highly distinguishable dog that could have been advertised in your local paper for sale or offered for rehoming.

Please, please check locally for us. Has your vet or local rescue had any Bracco Italiano registered, or had any dealings with a Bracco over the past few months?
Jacob must be somewhere, but actually could quite easily be anywhere in the UK, Ireland, Scotland or Wales by now.
He could be being used for breeding ?
Have you seen any newly born Bracco Italiano puppies, or Bracco crosses lately perhaps ?

For your information, Jacob is Orange and white colouring, stands about 27" to the shoulder, entire, was (in January) slightly built, and has a small pea sized lump under the skin on his left shoulder.
Most importantly, he is MICROCHIPPED.

Sad as it is Jacob is still missing some 8 months on, this still torments our family.

As it is, I can hardly believe I am still having to think of ways for searching for him all these month's later, and having to sit for days, and hours researching email addresses such as yours to make contact, just something, anything further to get more people aware. 

We're told to never give up hope, and keep the campaign going and that's exactly what we have always done, hence us contacting you today in the hope that you too perhaps will take 2 minutes from your day to look at his poster, and even be kind enough to pass this email to your own work address book, friends and family.
Maybe you can go one step further and print the poster and put it in a prominent place for us ?

You will be very aware that dogs are being stolen, and lost every single day, you only have to check the Doglost webiste to see this is true.
One day this could be your own dog you are searching for so please, PLEASE help us to make Jacob's journey have a happy ending.

THANK YOU for all you can do to help us to bring Jacob home.

Shelley & Jon Haggerwood
