Missing Irish Setter

Our dog on this past Tues 14th of May,near Ballinadee in Co.Cork,Ireland, went missing. He is a 7 month old Irish Red Setter male. We are heartbroken here as he had become one of our family.I have been scouring gun dog websites etc. to try and find ones to place a missing advert on..
As he is a gun dog breed, we would like to post ads where gun dog owners may see them, as we are not sure whether the dog has just gotten lost (although it is unusual for his to stray,and the area has been thoroughly searched) or that he has been stolen.If stolen we expect he could be sold on to an unsuspecting new owner, who may be into shooting or gun dog trials, even showing events etc.. In Ireland at the moment there has been a spate of dog thefts all around the country, and some talk that the dogs are being sold across to the UK, to unsuspecting new owners. Because of this, I’ve decided to try and contact some gun dog associations and other dog sites across the water in the UK, just that they might be on the lookout for a young red setter.
Any info or help you could give me about maybe where I could advertise on a club website etc. would be great,as we have already advertised on sale websites and rescue centre websites in Ireland. I would appreciate it if you could pass on the message too, it would mean so much. I am going to email any secretaries on the site that have email address also. If he turns up, I will email you to notify you so you can discontinue any search.
Sincere thanks, in hope you may reply, I have a poster with more details should you need them..
