Where possible we like to use actual photos of the missing dog. There can be a delay in receiving images from owners. Where we know that an owner is sending one through its best to way about an hour, if its not received then do the alert with a K9 standard lost dog image (see image). There are occasions where owners have no photos, then just simply post alert with standard image.

All missing dog photos to be watermarked with The reason for this is because we found some people copy the photo and post as their own, no problem really until they get info on the missing dog and then cannot remember where the original photo came from. Watermark ensures the photo can always be tracked back to ourselves.
