So fantastic to hear that Jarvis is rallying David, you both have a lot of love to help the healing process πŸ’– Facebook has it’s critics but if used in the right way it is a priceless tool to help animals / people back together. It’s wonderful that this has had such a ‘happy’ ending, sending lots of love and here’s hoping that you will all have plenty of time to make treasured memories. Our furries will never ever be with us for the lifetime that we would like 😭 we have to enjoy it while we can πŸ‘πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
DavidGill
Thank you Paw, didn’t realise how much I loved this dog. You watch their whole life play out in front of you..and it’s just so beautiful and ultimately so sad too. I have this old man who I don’t want to go. Thank you for the support. Left in a rush and feel bad I didn’t take my posters down. Thank you again
Paw
So pleased that Jarvis is resting and recovering, it sounds like he must have been really tired to have been caught and gently restrained - well done Wayne and Chris! David I'm so glad you didn't give up on him, you sounded so sad and dejected when I spoke with you, I knew you didn't want to give up really. It was quite a nice walk this morning removing the posters.
janiejewel1649
DavidGill Pleased that Jarvis is doing well. Sending Jarvis healing thoughts. We do tend to hear about more bad things that people do, and not the good re: the media. My hat goes off to the people whose own dogs are missing. And yet they are willing to put themselves out, to help search for other missing dogs, although their own heart must be broken. You are all stars****Last edited: 2019-06-13 12:48:57 by janiejewel1649

DavidGill, Brought a bit of a lump to my throat your post, he’s clearly so loved and it’s mutual , probably why he survived and didn’t give up, he was determined to see you again.
Belle
So happy for you David. So many people and dogs are not reunited, and when either is elderly it's even more tragic. Restores my faith in humanity when so many people care about an old, lost dog. Happy summer to both of you :)
DavidGill
Thank you Helen. I really can’t believe just how many people were helping and hoping. So many people were aware and in these last 5 days where I’ve done nothing much but walk and sleep..I’ve over heard walkers talking..spoken to a local builder I know who said..ah that’s your dog..saw on Facebook!..been phoned by an off duty police officer and texted with offers of help!!.. the guys who spotted him also said they’d seen it on Facebook..so wow!!..I’m just amazed. As for Jarvis..he’s recovering. I’m back in London and as I write he’s sleeping on a comfy mass of towels and duvet cover in the kitchen. His basket’s too tight and he’s stiff. He’s got some sores and maggots and he’s clearly dazed but he’s been checked over in the boot of my car...got some drugs and hibiscrub and we’ll sort it. He’s been walking round wagging his tale and eating small portions of chicken and rice. We’re so pleased it didn’t end for him in this way. So grateful for the guys at the coastguard cottages who were straight on the case and did all the contact with you and started this huge ball rolling. Thank you again to everyone. Jarvis will have a great summer and I wish the same to you all. Thank you

Thank you so much for the update David, I know there were so many people helping and searching for him and lots of people that lived too far away to help on the ground willing him home.
Keep safe now Jarvis you are one special boy x
thedogfinder
Awwww! So chuffed to hear that Jarvis is safe! Welcome home Jarvis 🐾
bullt
Wow - just THE best news - just am so delighted for you all ... was unable to come & help look but been sharing & checking DogLost - the thrill of seeing him in the blue now has made my day ... hope he will feel okay after a couple of days .... people's idea of a tracker sounds good .. x
DavidGill
Firstly can I say a huge heartfelt thank you to this resource and all the people who've offered advice and encouragement here on it. Thank you to everyone who looked out for Jarvis..and to everyone who went out and looked for him!. Jarvis was found in a field between Westleton and Middleton. When I got there he was covered by a coat and being gently held down so he didn’t run and his eyes were closed. He got up slowly, and you can imagine that moment. This old dog, who would have been so distressed and run himself ragged on Saturday morning, and who needs to drink more than you’d expect, and whose back legs give way on the stairs..spent 4 nights out in woods and fields. I had been sure he was dead. He’s now recovering and feeling the love. Thank you everyone. Thank you Wayne and Chris from Middleton. The king is not dead!!..long live the king!
Labrador lover
Oh, what wonderful news!! I’ve been too far away to help on the ground but have been checking in daily with hope for this dear old boy - very worried that as he was last sighted by a pond he may have toppled in.
David - I was so heartened by your devotion to your dear friend, not giving up on him and determined to find him whatever the outcome. You so deserve to have him home safe. Cuddle him close tonight, I’m sure you’ll both sleep well.
vanessa
Just sooo pleased, felt sure he wasn’t far away
We are all so happy

Bo
What amazing news, so happy for you.
Paw
Brilliant news David and Jarvis! He must have just kept running until he felt safe, like my border collie does (and did this morning!) Luckily I know his usual route and he had his tracker collar on, so I went and headed him off at Sizewell again! Not sure if you need a tracker for Jarvis, but ours is Nano dog tracker and works as well as can be expected with mobile signal around here. Can't remember price (less than £100 I think) but subscription is £60 per year - just renewed ours for 3rd year. It worked well this morning as I could see how far down the beach he had got by the time I got to Sizewell. I'll go and take down posters tomorrow as Stan will be on a lead walk tomorrow!
Twizzle
Thank goodness, treats for Jarvis tonight and a good night's sleep for you, welcome home Jarvis.
Sue
On a practical note: small, regular feeds of his normal food are recommended while his system readjusts! x
Sue
That is THE best news SO pleased David!! The relief will keep you going for days πŸ˜„ Maybe get him a tracking device as he’s vulnerable? I have one on Meg since she went awol! Was great to meet you at Dunwich yesterday, it’s hard to keep hopeful as the days go by, but you have to keep going! Jarvis will be so unbelievably relieved too bless him. Hope he’s ok. ...I’m grinning like an idiot here!! xxx

I’m so pleased to hear this amazing news. So happy for you David to have your boy home. Well done to everyone involved. Such a worry when it’s an older pet especially being deaf, he must have been so scared 😟. Tears here too Pip πŸΎπŸΆπŸ‘
AnnaMac
Brilliant news! What a relief!
Pip
Fantastic news ,overjoyed for you ,this has bought a tear ( or two) am so pleased that Jarvis has been found and reunited to his amazing owner ( whom I don't know) but has endeared himself to many of us I'm sure with his love & commitment to his buddy.

That is such fantastic news David, I'm so, so pleased you have found him safe x
DavidGill
Guys!!!! I can’t believe I’m writing this..he’s just been found and I’ve picked him up. Found by two guys in a field between Westleton and Middleton. They’d seen it on Facebook. Absolutely cannot believe it. I’ll update later..thank you thank you thank you
AnnaMac
Hi David, We live in Westleton and went out looking for Jarvis from about 11am onwards this morning around the Sandlings walk area and towards Eastbridge. Will keep looking. Is it worth leaving an item of clothing further into the reserve with your smell on it? Just an idea.
DavidGill
Just back from Minsmere and Sandlings Walk area and went much further into the reserve. I’ve been hoping my other dog may pick up his scent or leave his own that Jarvis can get if he is still around. We’ve walked all the area early and late and there’s just no sign
Gloria
David maybe a call to the local radio to Mike Murphy to give a mention could help too just a thought come on Jarvis we want you back home
DavidGill
Hi, yes just updated it. 3 blobs of paint
HeatherG
David can you describe your Facebook profile picture? We can send you friend requests to try and help set up a group for you x
SanP
Shared to Businesses on Facebook in Westleton, Darsham, Dunwich and Walberswick. I’m now blocked on Facebook. The best of luck David, come on Jarvis show yourself πŸ‘
Carolynl
Jarvis has been shared to Harvey's Army (south) and seen him on EastAnglia lost and found pets...if I could drive I would be there; unfortunately all I can do at the moment is share & hope πŸ€žπŸ™ x
DavidGill
Thank you to everyone who’s looking out for this dog. I’d never have imagined it and thank you all.Last edited: 2019-06-11 22:22:34 by DavidGill
Gloria
David I had put Jarvis on Facebook and SAN Pope did and Jarvis is being shared like Bo said below to get people looking hopefully some people are good and if they spot Jarvis they will take him to be scanned
Bo
Doglost have FB groups for areas around the country, Jarvis is on the Norfolk and Suffolk one https://m.facebook.com/groups/DogLostNorfolkSuffolk/?view=group
DavidGill
Someone I met, today, when I told them about Jarvis said they’d seen it on Facebook??
DavidGill
That’s amazing thank you. I have a Facebook but never use it or know how to! Really don’t know how this works or what I should do
SanP
David, someone has kindly offered to set up a ‘group’ on Facebook for Jarvis. I gather that you yourself are not on Facebook but if you know someone that could act on your behalf Jarvis will get a lot more coverage.
DavidGill
Hi Gloria, thank you, just got back from Minsmere again. Just going further in and trying not to get lost. Nothing I’m afraid
Gloria
Have you got help this evening David?
DavidGill
Hi Gloria, yes and thank you for your support. I heard nothing on Sunday or since. I’ve walked further into the wooded areas off my main walk as I walked to coastguard cottages and no sign. My other dog’s a working cocker too. Feeling a little more positive after talking with the team at coastguard cottages. Thank you everyone
Gloria
David I was going into RSBP and I passed you I believe you had a black dog as I passed I had my car window open as I thought you found Jarvis but couldn’t stop as a van was coming the other way , anyway we started off from Saxmundham went via Leiston cut across to Minsmere then to RSPB then from there to Walberswick we had my sprocker with us to try to pick up a scent but still no sightings we spoke to Ian from the RSPB who kindly gave us a map of where we could and could not trespass of which we followed. We have just left and on our way home hopefully he will he found safe and sound , apparently there were 500 visitors to the RSPB on Sunday but no sightings but still stay positive David

This is a photo which was posted on a local dog owner’s group this morning, 10/6. . Very little info (doesn’t say where in Essex) but might be worth following up https://share.icloud.com/photos/0eSdAszT0TCXDMAwr8BGaYU2A
Sandra and Murphy cat
Wish I lived close to help but unfortunately I’m in Scotland. What about a drone or tracker dog? Could he be caught up in a fence, undergrowth or ttrapped somewhere? I really hope you find him soon but don’t give up hope, it’s early days 🐾🐢
DavidGill
I’m really sorry I don’t know where to suggest and thank you for your support
DavidGill
I’ve done the Sandlings Walk numerous times. I’ve walked the road to the RSPB and gone into the area in between all with my other dog. This is where I thought he may be. A lot of this area is no access to dogs. I’m at a loss to say where. He may have travelled some miles or collapsed. He’s old and going up stairs at home his legs occasionally give.
Gloria
David where would you suggest we go first
Gloria
Just heading towards Minsmere via Leiston to look for Jarvis
DavidGill
We were on what we call the Bakers Lane Walk. Drive down Bakers Lane and keep going all the way over speed bumps etc to Sandlings Walk. We park and walk through to Dunwich beach at Coastguard Cottages. We were on the return leg at 10am and 5-10 minutes from the car and suddenly he wasn't there. Went up and down for an hour or more and eventually drove round to Minsmere RSPB where I left my number. I had a call around 2pm saying he'd been spotted at the pond at the back of the centre. When I got there 15 minutes later there was no sign and was told the reported sighting although just reported to them..was from an hour ago. Later in the day a man told me he'd seen Jarvis running it the direction of Eastbridge at 10am. I believe he ran to the RSPB centre and has gone sideways onto open ground...too many birdwatchers to not report him on the bird sanctuary itself. So that was the last reported sighting at the back of the RSPB at 1pm Saturday. Although Jarvis knows the Sandlings Walk to the beach it was the first visit in a few months...we mostly walk around Walberswick.
Gloria
Where exactly did Jarvis walk when taken out was it a route you kept to and has there been any more sightings at all in any areas that might help when looking for Jarvis please
ClaireG
We were out again tonight and we will go again tomorrow. Poor Jarvis. Thoughts ate with you David Gill
DavidGill
Thanks to everyone for all the help and support. I’m afraid still no sign or word on Jarvis. I’ve been around Minsmere and Sandlings Walk and the forest in between and am here again in hope. Thank you all again.
Gloria
Just got back to Saxmundham after checking out Minsmere, Dunwich, and drove through Eastbridge but unfortunately no sightings the weather didn’t help to be honest but walked with my sprocket through Minsmere parallel to Sheepwash lane hope he is found soon also went along the Dunwich beachLast edited: 2019-06-10 14:00:59 by Gloria

Thank you everyone
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
I have spoken to Sam with Loki and unfortunately they are not available to help at the moment.
Sue
I walked along the border between Dunwich Heath & Minsmere last night, and out along the bridleway and down to Minsmere. Has anybody approached Sam & Loki yet? Also checking buildings where possible in case Jarvis has hunkered down somewhere. Will search again later xx
Paw
Just walked from Eastbridge to Minsmere Sluice to scour Minsmere from a different perspective. Didn't see anything except a man who was working on the marshes - just on his way to Dingle, then Westwood and Tinkers marshes so will be on the lookout in some inaccessible places he's got your phone number. I'm off for a drive around Minsmere/Dunwich area soon.
Gloria
Thank you I’ll be out today looking with hope
DavidGill
I was also told by someone he’d run in the direction of Eastbridge from RSPB...I’ve driven the roads from Minsmere to Coastguard cottages and Dunwich and out to Eastbridge and walked around the walk he knows but nothing. I’m heading out again now. Thank you very much everyone
DavidGill
He was seen nr the pond at the back of the RSPB centre Minsmere and this was told to the staff some time afterwards at around 2 pm on Saturday. I had no other reports after that and nothing yesterday. Thank you
Gloria
Where is the best place to search ?? as I can do this in the morning it’s hard at night as I’m older and have trouble with my feet but I’ want to help tomorrow , i don’t know whether to try Duneich or Mimsmere can someone help by answering this please
DavidGill
Thanks to you all. I’m just back from Minsmere..been driving the roads and walking the route with our other dog most of the day and nothing I’m afraid.
Paw
Helen, if you come Eastbridge way at all, please get in touch as I have more time to search now. PatLast edited: 2019-06-09 19:08:57 by Paw

Ring round all local vets tomorrow as someone may have taken him in and waiting for vets to open to get him scanned, vet should call you if he's taken in but best to be proactive and then at least they'll be aware of him. Off soon for a walk up the bridlepath off Sheepwash lane, we drove down there earlier but no sign of him. He may come out now there's less people and traffic about.
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
I will contact Sam with Loki (tracker dog) and see if they are able to help at all.
ClaireG
We walked in from Sizewell over to Minsmere and back to Eastbridge. We were on the lookout and hoped my dogs may draw him if he was close by. We walk every day in Dunwich so we will keep searching. Such a worry for you David Gill.
janiejewel1649
I don`t know the area, as i live in the Central region , but is it possible that a Feeding station could be used, or and has anyone own a Tracker dog who could help here? re; skywalker99 suggestion. Paws xd,Last edited: 2019-06-09 18:36:06 by janiejewel1649

Just frantic for you
I live yards from Bakers lane and will retrace possible route out later tonight
I have a deaf dog too so know how hard it must be
Keep positive
Carolynl
Rooting for this lad to be found soon; please stay safe & in vicinity, Jarvis...thoughts are with you David & family...don't give up the hope...sounds as if there's a lot of people rooting for this lad to be home; in the warm, dry & resting his weary head ...we're all rooting for you David & Jarvis x
DavidGill
Will leave his basket out where I last was with him...clothing left last night.
DavidGill
Last seen nr the Minsmere RSPB Centre...Sheepwash Lane. He was sighted a number of times but no one could get him..he was running around in a panic I believe.
Sue
Keep going David! It might be possible to get a dog tracker out if he doesn't turn up soon. Where was he last seen?Last edited: 2019-06-09 14:57:02 by Sue
Paw
Been out and put up a few more posters around Eastbridge/Minsmere area. Will walk around that way this evening when he's more likely to be out in the open. Don't give up hope he could just be hiding up during daytime.
DavidGill
Thanks everyone. Just got to Dunwich beach via the heath and heading back. I doubt he’d make it back to Walberswick so fearing the worst I’m afraid
Sue
So sorry Jarvis is still missing. I'm at Dunwich Heath where we're all aware and lots of eyes peeled. I will come and search after work. My dog was lost in the same area and it's indescribably distressing. Hang in there, they're tougher than you think! xx
Paw
Printed a few posters, will go out shortly and put them near Eastbridge, near Minsmere, etc. I'll walk with my dog, and then join husband to drive track through the woods. Have other things to do soon, but will keep checking and try to do a bigger walk later if he's still not home. Is he likely to find his way home?

I have some fresh tripe and chicken If you would like me to bring it down, if you need someone there even to bring you a cup of tea please get in Touch. I am available and I have dogs of my own so I understand you must be distraught. Please give me a call any time night or day, regards, Beverley Amiss 07495 972295,

Will look around Eastbridge area in the morning and try to get some posters up. Are you local or on holiday - does Jarvis know the area?
DavidGill
Nothing so far..hoping he can last the night. He’ll be very distressed. Was sighted numerous times around Dunwich Heath /Minsmere...last seen running in direction of Eastbridge...he may well have doubled back.
lizziebeaumont
Please ask to join one of our admin group on Facebook, Drone SAR for lst dogs uk. Or ask someone to join in your behalf. Graham might have a drone pilot who can tell search. Please leave some of your unwashed bedding and clothing at the point he went missing , he could picj up the scent and return . Keep a watch on the area though
https://m.facebook.com/groups/134125720518945?ref=bookmarks
janiejewel1649
As he is deaf, When you are searching for Jarvis, I would take with you some freshly cooked chicken, as the smell of the meat should tempt him. And take with you his UNWASHED blanket, so he will recognize his own scent; yours too. Hand out as many posters as you can; where, and when you can. He could be hiding somewhere. Paws xd.
DavidGill
Didn’t find him yet, still searching. Last seen heading to Eastbridge Suffolk.Last edited: 2019-06-08 19:19:43 by DavidGill
