Have posted in the dogslost facebook group & it was suggested this could be Bess - my mum spotted a black labrador-type dog in a field along Westley Lane in Horringer (left-hand side as you head into Horringer) looked like the dog was alone but she wasn't able to stop.

do you think a humane trap can be put in the last place Bess was seen or at least in the place she went missing with food?Last edited: 2018-04-29 10:59:59 by Victoria18

I went out to Santon Downham on Saturday and West Tofts Sunday down tracks 33 and 36 but sadly no sightings. Was great to see all of Bess' posters up at Santon Downham and asked several walkers/bird watchers and a lady who owned some ponies there to keep an eye out, some people were aware of Bess being missing, so fingers crossed she will be home very soon xxx Last edited: 2018-04-03 09:31:56 by Victoria18

A black lab bitch has been handed into Vets for Pets Sudbury, looking very similar to Bess. Also posted on Lost & Stolen gundogs group https://www.facebook.com/groups/227656023989200/permalink/1663143180440470/

Heading out to santon downham this afternoon for a look for beautiful Bess, fingers crossed she’s out there. Been watching the Lost and Found tv prog and they say dogs go to ground during the day and come out at night looking for food and that they tend to be near home when found. Here’s hoping xxxLast edited: 2018-03-30 12:26:23 by Victoria18

Please let us know if you are planning further searches, more than happy to join in to cover some extra ground - if not then perhaps we ought to do one over the Easter period.

Victoria, I don’t know if there is another search planned yet, I think people are searching as and when they have the time and spreading the word by speaking to people.
Not sure if what she is like around other dogs but I do know she is a nervous timid dog.
Victoria18
Sorry I missed the search, are you having another one over the weekend as I could help with that one. Is Bess nervous around other dogs or will they 'draw' her out, as could bring our cocker spaniel who is good with other dogs to help? xxx
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
Sadly no sightings today from the organised search, please continue to look out for Bess and contact the owner immediately if you do see her.

Good luck everyone!

**SEARCH PARTY TODAY 24th March**
From Lee....
This is gonna be a big ask but ......
As we’ve had no sightings I’d like to organise a search, the thought of her injured or trapped plays on my mind heavily,and split the groups into sections.
Highlodge ( ideally for those on bikes)
Santon downham
The country park in Brandon
Brandon river etc etc
I know this is a big ask but if anybody is available Saturday between 11 onwards please let me know.
Cheers for all your support
Lee

From Jess’s owner....
Morning everybody.
Sightings have dried up in the last 48 hours or so. This could be down to the recent cold weather. If anybody sees her out and about could you please contact me with the location.

Update from Bess’s owner
Unfortunately people have been searching for Bess and have been going down there with leads and calling her which has spooked her.
If you do see Bess please walk away and leave her alone.
She is running scared and isn’t settling in one area...
Victoria18
Yes will do Lee, fingers crossed xxx

Update from owner : Hi everybody and firstly thanks for all your help. Secondly could I please ask everybody to stop searching. She has been spotted and is in observation by the trappers. So on there advice can we all leave her be now please. Once again thank you all very much and hopefully I will be updating you with good news soon. Lee

Have added to FB page and contacted friends who live in Brandon and walk their dogs in forest. I live in Weeting so please let me know if you need feet on the ground to help bring Bess home. I can print posters off too. We walk our dogs in Hockwold area which isn't fair from where she has been sighted and will put word out to other dog walkers to keep an eye out and to call owner if seen. I never received an email on this DOGLOST so did one get sent out to the other people registered to help? xxxLast edited: 2018-03-15 08:40:59 by Victoria18
