Welcome home Arran, you stay safe now. Maybe a tracker as a late Christmas present is in order?
Well done to all that have helped x

Well done everyone, all will sleep well tonight.
Thank you to all who have helped towards Arran's capture.
I understand a lot of posters were put up while Arran was on the run, could they please be removed and disposed of appropriately.
what a relief. I have only been home an hour after another search today. I even asked the burger van people to leave any scraps on the ground when they left. I hope that Arran gets a warm bath and a lot of food now and that the dog walker maybe doesn't park by a main road in future. Stay safe Arran.

BREAKING NEWS !!!!!!!! FOUND !!!!! Back with owner, found about 10 mins ago, a lady saw him in her garden on ringwood road. now in the back of owners car heading home.
Had a long walk today around the area, no signs but did potentially work out where and how he is walking about in the various places. Parked in Potterne Park, walked towards moors valley then headed left into a wood, spotted where a rug and food bowl has been left, half a sausage in the bowl this was about 12 midday, I added a lincolnshire sausage (cooked) to the bowl, proceeded through wood and then took a natural turning right which brought me out by the industrial estate, walked along road and noticed a nice area with hedgerow on left which wold be a good spot to go to ground in the day as sunny and dry but hidden. carried on to traffic lights, directly opposite lights is a path which then leads to a close which then feeds into the grange where again he has been spotted in the past, returned via the industrial estate and back round the wood near potterne to car park. as he has been seen in these areas I think the route I took may well be what he is doing.
I'll be heading to that area with my dogs today (I only live 1.5 miles away and know it well) and will walk in the woods behind The Chase and new housing development up towards the Blue Haze tip.

I spoke with a few searchers yesterday, in Potterne Park and the wood behind Ebblake Ind. Est (where he'd been seen) however nobody has mentioned the cemetery, opposite The Chase. Might be worth a look in there.

If travelling along the B3081, Ringwood Road please take care in the area of the Ebblake industrial Estate as Arran is regularly crossing the road to and from The Chase.
Traps are being supplied by bearded collie groups as Arran is now in survival mode.
Trapping advice emailed

Owner is going home now (to get some rest), please if anyone can head towards the area please do so...some locals are already on the ground searching.
DogLostGnasher - Area Co-ordinator, East Dorset
Sighted during the night in the area of The Chase. At one point feet away from his family but he strolled on by. Concerns that he is now crossing busy roads.
He is together looking well.
A reminder please for sightings only to be phoned in
Owner checking found dog 153327 just in case it's Arran but no answer from finder as yet.

Have just been out searching, has been lots of sightings today...owners are camping out, cooking food and the dog is circling the area.
DogLostWill - SM/IT Intern, Area Volunteer for Dorset/Hampshire Border
Last sighting: Potterne Park/Wood. Traps and bait in place. Teams are on the ground.
Sounds like he is staying near the area he bolted from, I did have a look late last night about 11pm, drove around the industrial estate twice and then parked in the car park from where he bolted and with a powerful flash light went for a short walk looking in hedgerow and forested areas near the main path. Will go out looking again later today, hope he is found safe soon.

Arran went missing from the car park on the left just past the cattery on the Alderholt Road where he bolted accross the forest towards the Ebblake industrial estate. People have been searching the forest there and also are searching Moors Valley and Avon Heath.
The sighting at Matchams Lane is not 100% confirmed.
Home is St Catherine's Hill so he may attempt to get home

According to Madeleine, Beardies are known to travel long distances and could easily travel 20 miles in a few hours.
