Can you help find a lost Chihuahua?

I've received a very sad email which I've attached below. If anyone can help please do:
 
Hello I was just wondering if you could put an advert through your show please? I lost my Chihuahua dog "pip" when he ran out of my house on Monday. We are from Norton-on-tees but by now he could be anywhere in Stockton-on-tees. He is 8 months old and did not have his collar on but he was wearing a black "007" dog tshirt. His coat is a tan colour.
Please could you ask anyone with any information to contact us at 01642 892762.

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.
