I can't believe it's been a year to the day since Rowan came home!  I can't stop smiling again reading all his posts, he is 1 lucky boy.  I just wish that all our missing dogs can have such a happy ending.x.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Can I thank Barbara who contact myself Kim, Banes Dog Warden reporting a sighting of a dirty looking dog that led to Rowan being found in Batheaston, Bath.  The quick response from the S.Glos Dog Warden, With the general public working in conjuntion with the Dog Warden Services, Rowan was seen and dealt with quickly.  A happy ending and I know Barbara was so pleased that it was her that made that call.  Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Doglover has said it all - I can only re-iterate that it was really lovely to see Rowan back in the warm and he really is even more handsome in the flesh than he is in the photos.  We now need to send get well wishes to his owner for a speedy recovery.  And yes, let this story give hope to other people who are searching for their dogs, we all want them to be in the blue on this page.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Myself and dinkydoodle have tonight been to visit Prim and Rowan,it was so nice to meet Rowan after so many weeks of searching and postering ! I must say he looks amazing and has fitted back into normal life, we even got to stroke and smooth the little fella and we were rewarded with a lick on the hand from Rowan. I think he was saying thank you.   I hope this happy ending gives hope to all dog owners who have dogs missing and they r  reunited soon. I am sure  Rowan will bring comfort to his owner in hospital and wish him a good recovery. Welcome home Rowan, you r such a  handsome chap.xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

For all those who are asking.  Rowans owner is still in hospital after the stroke,  at the moment he is stable thank goodness.  We are hoping in a few weeks it may be possible for Rowan to have short visit.  Everyone  is willing him better.  Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

What a lovely ending. I cried too! I have often fantasised that Princess would just suddenly walk up to me and Katie one day like Rowan did, then I scold myself for being daft. But maybe not so daft eh? I can't imagine how good it feels to have him back, no more sleepless nights thinking of him out in the cold wondering if he was eating ok. I am very very pleased for you and wish you all the best.   Gay xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

We had a call about a sighting yesterday afternoon in Swainswick, just outside Bath.. Our great dog warden rushed there closely followed by Prim and 2 brilliant helpers (Dinkydoodle and Doglover). It was nearly dark by the time the dog warden arrived but she saw him running away in a field and he had gone by the time owner and helpers arrived. We got her to "scent" the area and walk her dogs around and also put down food.. She went back this morning, armed for the day with soup, sandwiches and blankets and walked around with her dogs. First nothing, no sign at all, then sat in the car for a while to warm up. Went off again, walked around field and was about to turn to walk back to the car and something made her look toward the kissing gate in the distance, and there he stood watching her. She was convinced it was a dream. Her dogs recognised him and ran up to him where they all greeted each other, Rowan then heard her say "Oh Rowan, where have you been all this time" and he twigged who it was and raced across to her going crazy leaping up kissing her and yelping. She slipped his lead on and walked back to the car where he jumped in first, laid on the back seat as if he had never been away!!!! He is thinner and his coat is matted but pretty good considering its been over 7 weeks. He will be vet checked out in the morning. Special thanks to a great dog warden, and everyone else who helped in the hunt for this little one, and for Prim who did so much and didn?t give up on him.. There has been tears all round today but happy ones. Welcome home Rowan, back where you belong.. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Brilliant effort going on there, but please encourage everyone to print a poster off and carry it in your pocket. That's what I do here in the south east because that one sighting needs an instant phone call I also have a spare lead but a sheltie would be having none of it. As Lynn says it needs that person special to the dog. love Sylv xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

POSSIBLE  sighting at Doynton just over a week ago, horse rider saw what she thought may of been Rowan run off.  This is not 100% though.  Now covered complete area with posters covering Toghill, Hinton and Doynton and surrounding villages.  All sightings come in couple of weeks afer the event we need to kow quickly to get the person he trusts to him.. Letters sent out to farms as well requesting barns and sheds checked.  We are still actively leaving no stone unturned.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

A sheltie expert friend says Rowan could be surviivng quite well on his current food source, but the pending bad weather may well flush him out of hiding as he'll need more supplies. Let's hope so. love Sylv xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

It's very reasuuring to see so much sustained interest in this boy. Like the others I believe it's a matter of him showing his head and it's likely he's found a warm haybarn or similar. Yes they can change colour and do look like foxes. love Sylv xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

hello all, i have just been out postering more areas close to where i live along cycle paths/dog walkers areas handed out loads of flyers to dog walkers, everyone seems to know about rowan which is good news. (from ads in local papers) just another thought lynnl could we get yate town football club to put something in next home game programe or put posters/flyers inside as lots of people from that area would then see it??? fingers xxxxx for some more news and sightings soon. come home soon rowan thinking of you...Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Having owned three shelties in the past, and was involved in tracking a friends sheltie many years ago, who was found after nearly 2 months, thought I would add a few thoughts. The sheltie we tracked was so hard to spot, she would drop into dykes and run along the bottom to get from field to field, only popping up occasionally, we could only get sightings by literally camping out for a day/night in one spot with binoculars. She was found about 5 miles from where lost. Also, if you think you have seen a fox instead it may well be your dog, this sheltie changed colour literally from a blue merle to black on her back whilst in the wild. They have remendous survival instinct as others have said. We also got the owners within 2 foot of her, but no way was she coming , had turned very wild, so suggest a trap best approach, we were lucky a gamekeeper chased her into a barn, once owner went to her and touched her it was like a transformation from wild dog to tame pet. Good luck, these dogs are amazing, luckily a bit timid also so will shy away from traffic as well. XXLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I do’t know what is happening behind the scenes but thought I would share some techniques we used with Bubbles. We plotted all sightings on Google earth and looked at her direct routes through fields (much quicker than road routes) which gave us a good picture of her ’rounds’ We also found when no sightings that despite all posters, news etc she had bee in an area where people were unaware of of search-and when we happened on that area there were multiple sightings. Food stations kept her put (water available in dykes) Numerous areas of shelter-barns, log plies, thick bracken etc Often the picture was built some time after sightings reported. She was found really healthy despite cold weather and time out (8th Dec) But she did start showing at night more often -especially in busy road areas. When we pin pinted her most prolific area we introduced a trap. I would try food stations at all sightings just to try and get a handle on her. Sorry if you already done all this.but better to say than not I thought

Rowan was in the Yate Gazette this week. We had POSSIBLE sighting on friday in Siston common, was checked out thoroughly and no sign of him.  Sighting was at night so could well have been a fox. Great that people are telling us though.Thank you doglover for postering that area for us.  Nice to see so many people wishing this boy home.  HS thanks for your suggestions, that was some time ago he was seen, everyone in the area is watching out for him.  We just need a definate sighting.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I've been watching and keeping my fingers and toes crossed for Rowan.  I can see what an amazing effort you are all putting in and it is fantastic.  One thing that occured to me is that there was a sighting near some stables a while back.  I imagine horsey people are sympathetic to the situation.  Is there mileage in asking them to leave some smelly food out regularly for him in a quiet safe corner (under a hedge so he doesn't have to break cover?) or even dog crate type to see if he is still in the area and maybe entice him out and give him some strength? Maybe if this works then a dog trap could be substituted for the crate.  
Sorry if this has already been thought of - you look to have covered all bases so far!    Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I re-postered Emersons Green park area earlier as it seems previous notices were missing.  Also got posters in my car rear windows to get non-dog walkers to get a picture of Rowan in their minds when I'm driving and parked around town.  I do so hope this little chap makes an appearance soon.  Come on sweetie.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I'm not surprised at no one having seen him. They are little masters of being invisible. You've probably walked past him umpteen times as well with him buried down under a bush. He's got to get water though, so that would mean a river, stables, farm... They can survive on turnips if needed. I keep looking at this page and princess as I think she's doing the same thing. In their own world and nearby. love Sylv xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I must have been behind doglover today as I went to Wapley to poster but was already done however I did put up a few more and spoke to a workman in the lane and a couple of dog walkers near the woods.  A question I am getting asked is how is Rowan's owner?  Will poster in Ram Hill 2moro and put a few more in Emersons Green/Mangotsfield as I feel this should be covered.  Some people have read about Rowan in paper so word is out there, just wish we could have another siting and safe return.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

LynnL, just had a thought, can we try and contact GWR, Bristol's local radio station and more specifically, the breakfast show in the weekday mornings is by Bush, Troy and Paulina - from listening every day I know Paulina has a dog and is an animal lover, she may be able to read out the details, just to get Rowan's details in people's minds.  Their website is gwrfmbristol.co.uk and the trio have their own page.  Sorry if you have already tried this.  I will be postering discussed areas tomorrow.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Like doglover, I too live near the park in Emersons Green and have been logging onto this site every night since I was given a poster by a friend of Rowan's owner just after Christmas.  Every day when I am walking my dog in the area, I show the poster to everyone I meet - I now think everyone here has seen the posters and is looking out for him.  I am looking and willing Rowan to be there.  I do hope that when I log on tomorrow I will see him on the reunited page.  If there is anything else I can do, please please let me know.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

It's a good idea to try to get local tv news to cover it. I visited a couple of farms near Ram Hill / Henfield today and walked up on the hill overlooking the abbatoir where i saw Rowan before. Also drove along from Doddington back to Wapley Hill and put a couple of posters up but have run out now. Will print some more out tomorrow. Rowan is good at keeping himself hidden so we could easily pass close to him and not know but when you look at the map there seem to be so many places he could be and that we haven't covered yet.

If you go on Rowan page and look at dog  information, just above that is a bit saying "dog poster 1" click on it and you will get the poster up and you can print direct from that.  I know the whole of Pucklechurch are aware of him and all the vets were told when he went missing.  However if you want to poster anywhere around I am sure the searchers out there would be appreciative.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

hello lynnl yes i live very close to yate 5 miles approx and about 3 miles from pucklechurch area where i think he has been spotted.i drove around area few days ago just looking all the time and have given my husband poster to put on his work notice board as he works in pucklechurch, this area has posters everywhere, petrol stations parks and shops so people must know about rowan missing.also bristol tradeit.com(free local newspaper to all areas) you can place ad in lost section maybe worth a try and its free.have all the local vets   been contacted?? i no longer have a poster as given to husband and cant print off computer!  but if you could send me some i could take round vets etc. anything i can do to help as hes on my mind day and night.    Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thank you Doglover for these suggestions.  I will get on to them and see if one will run a story or even all of them.  If we get a definate sighting it would not be a good idea to arrange a search party to find him.  He is an extremely nervous little dog and all this time out will increase that not diminish it.  If he is seen we need the lady who he knows to get these asap she has the most chance of gaining his confidence.  Thanks for all your suggestions though.  Wonder if you are local to this area? There are so many of us wishing this little one home, I would love him to be safe in the warm right now. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I am really worried about little Rowan, unfortunately, we don't live nearby to help the search. Usually, shelties really enjoy meeting each other but can be so shy with strangers. Have there been any more articles in the local press? Maybe someone took him in good faith, have the vets in the area been alerted just in case he was brought in? How long can he cope in these wintery conditions?  Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

hello all, i have been following this story every since i saw some ladies putting up posters near park in emerson green,(close to pucklechurch and yate) its such a sad story and i pray rowan is found soon.i log on every day to check for news and look for him everywhere i go,given out copies of posters in my area hoping for news, as a dog lover and owner i just wish we could find him.the ladies comments before about tv is great idea, POINTS WEST AND HTV(THE WEST TONIGHT)would be the best people to contact.or GWR RADIO.also another idea would be a group search party on one day with as many people as possible in teams looking in areas he was last seen, AND MAYBE APPEAL FOR DONATIONS AS A REWARD ??to help find him. anything i can do to help in searching please get in touch. thanx lynn. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I do hope Rowan is home soon now.  Has anyone considered using a trap as there have been sightings, and if there is someone who could man it?  I don't know if the Warden has one otherwise I'm sure there are people in the area who can lend one.  Good luck, stay safe till you're home Rowan. x  Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

It's the other side of the motorway from where he was first seen but all the sightings since have been this side and this area is close to where the accident happened. Prim and I searched here yesterday but I can't get out there today so if anyone wants a bracing walk it would be helpful and also to give out more posters to anyone they see though nearly everyone seems to be aware of him.

I now have the info on the Saturday 27th sightings, as follows: "Report & photo in Observer newspaper today has resulted in 3 phone calls to Prim. All had seen him last Saturday in the Wapley area , in a lane between Chipping Sodbury & Wapley. One person tried to get him but he shot off at speed.There are Kennels there & fields with horses so hopefully he can find some
sort of food around. I have to say that searchers have been to this area before & it is now the other side of the motorway again & also getting closer to where Prim lives. He may have moved on again since then, so lets hope other people report sightings from reading the paper."Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Furryhound, please will you clarify where these sightings were last Saturday? I've lost track here, thought the most recent definite sightings were the Pucklechurch ones which were earlier than that? My thoughts are with little Rowan and with everyone out there looking for him. xx

I remember Sophie the sheltie reunited early in the New Year after three weeks on the run - tap her name into the search engine on this site - was found sunning herself in a field of sheep. My boys are very good mousemen. One scurried across the car park and was caught in a split second. Also the breed can survive on root vegetables. I take it farmers and stables are checking their outbuildings? Shelties are a very tough breed. They don't look it, but they are surprising. How is the owner's health? love Sylv xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

We have had 3 reported sightings now for last saturday, all in the same area and almost in the same place. We searched for miles around there today and gave out more posters to walkers, horse owners and at nearby farms. There are lots of sheep here unfortunately and plenty of woods where he could be hiding. Luckily there’s lots of footpaths to give access to the land but it’s still like looking for a needle in a haystack - we don’t know if he’s still around here or moved on again to where we first saw him. Running out of ideas

I also think if he were trying to get home through town we'd have had a sighting by now. Yesterday we concentrated on searching around Wapley near where the accident happened. More posters going up in the area today but the places where the reported sightings were are miles apart and it's hard to know the best place to look now. It's also possible that people are confusing him with Jerry Lee who hasn't turned up either, despite endless searching and posters. Neither has had a possible sighting since Christmas Eve.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I would think maybe if he is trying to get back home as a little nervous boy he will be staying away from loud noises like busy main roads.  Perhaps postering heaving all the B roads would be a good move, more posters up more people will be watching.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I am almost certain that the possible sighting on Christmas Eve in Mangotsfield was Jerry Lee and not Rowan. Jerry Lee's owners have heard from someone who says they saw him that afternoon not far away from there. So, the last definite sighting, I believe, was last Monday between Pucklechurch and Henfield. Lots of folk been searching this area today but no luck.

I'm wondering if the brush with the car may be making him rest up more although no one in the sightings has said he is lame. Their paws do get sore and cracked, so maybe he's taking care of them. I take it a bed etc and maybe sometastry nibbles are ready for him in an accessible place at home and he's not slipping in for a nap then running away again. They can be a very shy breed when surviving.    Come on Rowan we all want you home love Sylv xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I think, knowing shelties, that he could indeed be resting by day and moving by night, to avoid traffic and people and maybe do a bit of scavenging while there is no one around to see him.

Trinity Road police station cover the area of Eastville etc so please make sure they have a poster too.  They have a small holding kennel there, so although the police are no longer responsible for stray dogs, they may have taken him in for safekeeping.  Have you alerted the Dog Wardens at Bristol City Council and Bristol Dogs Home too??Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Mum and I travelled back up to the area this afternoon. We went firstly to the owners house and from there, went back to Downend where Rowan was sighted. Then looked around Downend for a whilw, told a few people on route. Then went on to Fishponds, Eastville, Horfield,Filton and Patchway, before re joining the motorway for home. No luck - but did help spread the word a bit. Called in to the Morrisons petrol station in Downend and told the staff there about Rowan. I'm wondering if he is hiding / sleeping during the day and then trying to head home after dark ?? Until there is another sighting, it is extremely hard to know where to try looking.   The roads are very busy there and lots of houses - but also vast countryside. I pray that he is safe and will show himself again soon. Nina Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

If it was him spotted last night he's done Henfield to Mangotsfield since Monday. Really hope he takes advantage of the quiet roads though, don't want to think of him running through town when it's busy again. We called at Staple Hill police station to make sure they're aware of him and know who to call if sighted. Fingers crossed now.

If Rowan hiked from Pucklechurch to Mangotsfield yesterday he may be resting up today under shelter somewhere. It's one thing to know the direction of home, but he may not know the distance and may be pacing himself for a longer journey. He is a smart dog, if his paws are sore he will take a break before moving on.

How frustrating to be so close and great so many people are looking for him. Dogs can smell up to 15 miles away and Shelties are good at trying to get home even if it's a skittish route, so going in that direction has to be ressuring. Praying he's caught very soon and that the owner feels much better soon. love Sylv xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Mum and I ( and a friend ) travelled up to the area today as planned - took a couple of our shelties with us and found the roundabout where the crash happened. It was very hard seraching, when you are not from the area as we didn't know where to go ( thankfully, I had the sat nav and so found the culdesac, Kestrel Close, where Rowan was last seen ). Parked up there for a while, spoke to residents and gave out lots of posters and also postered  parked cars, inc a taxi ! I had done a google street map search last night and saw that a railway line runs along a nearby street - Robin Way. Walked around Robin Way for about an hour - squeezed thru a gap in the railway fencing and managed to have a look right down the vast embankment to the line - but nothing. There is a lot of overgrowth and vast amounts of countryside nearby - and also, it is very densly populated with houses - far too many to cover on foot. Later on we took a poster into the Tescos and drove around Yate and also Westerleigh, etc, but no luck whatsoever. It really was like looking for a needle in a haystack. I'm wondering if anyone has actually taken him in ? Such a vast area and no sightings. Fingers crossed we hear something soon. Nina. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Still no news it seems for definate on Rowan. If posters being removed put them back up!!!  Maybe someone has taken him in and wants to keep him.  Please don't give up he is out there somewhere waiting for a kindly voice to find him.  He will be hiding low and frightened.  Come on Rowan time to get back with people who love you.. Advised getting onto 3 radio stations first thing in morning. Everyone in that area should be watching out for him. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi all, we had no luck yesterday in finding Rowan. A lot of the posters which had been put up previously had been removed around the Heron Way/Kestrel Close area. There are a lot of stables in the area, we have left details with the ones we found to the south of Yate in the hope that they may catch sight of him whilst out riding. The Wickwar Rd area  and around Chipping Sodbury Golf Course still need postering along with the Engine Common area. I took along one of my shelties, who apart from the white on his face is very similar to Rowan, so the people that we spoke to now have a visual impression of what Rowan lookes like. A lot of people had seen the posters but hadn't realised he was so small. Good luck to those helping today. Praying that we get a sighting soon  Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hope the search goes well...please note often a dog will go back to near the point of an accident as that is all it knows ...it will of course be hiding in fear so check all the bushes & undergrowth in that area even if it is a shopping centre or private gardens.Good luck.xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Long talk tonight with friend of owner of this little one.  She has been very active postering, contacting DW, vets, etc.  Rowan should be in Western Daily Press and Evening Post so bumping up.  Have amended poster to include mobile number and suggested contact Radio bristol, Severn sound and Stroud FM to put out appeals.  He is going to be frightened and scared, if anyone sees him please call contact number immediately. Come on we need to get him in the warm. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

hi sheltie people, glad to see you are on the case, can you get something in the Bristol Evening Post which I believe has a wide circulation?

I'm so sorry to hear this sad story. As most of you know my dog has been missing from Iron Acton since 19th Nov. I will most certainly check my end of yate & Sodbury for you. Please do keep in contact with our local dog wardens as they are fantastic. I have quite good knowledge of the area (more so now since our search began!) If you would like to contact me at any time for advice or help searching together then by all means call me. It's sadly possible that sheltie may have been picked up by somebody who has failed to get in touch with warden/ owners. If this is the case then we will have to be extra vigilant with our search. I will inform everyone in our area for you & lets hope that we can bring back all of our fury loved ones before Christmas. :-) Danielle xxxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Sheltie Lady can you please call Jayne at head office on the main number and ask for my mobile so I can try and help with Rowan. Have tried to phone, e mail, left messages etc and no one calls me.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi everyone. I have known the owner of Rowan for many years - he is an elderly gentleman and suffered a stroke whilst driving - crashed the car and the police had Rowan on the lead, but the lead failed, he was hit by a car and bolted. The lady that has given her contact number is also a  friend of mine, but she has no internet. She has been out looking for Rowan constantly. I have spoken with her last night, left her my mobile number in case Rowan is sighted, but I am a good 2 hours away. Rowan will be extremely scared and will not go near anyone he dosen't know - so please, if he is sighted, ring the contact number. If anyone is able to get near him, do not chase him, but use his name and try to corner him and coax him with food. This is so sad. Please, is there anyone local that could help search the Yate area, near Chipping Sodbury ?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Not surprised the police got the slip. Typical sheltie - full flight. They always do when there's trauma. However they do tend to return to the spot even if it's in a few days, so i would keep an eye on that area. i've told Sheltie lady so she might have contacts that way. I'm sending the details to someone who knows the area over there. love Sylv xxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

The contact number we have is for the lady who shows the dog. Our problem in getting hold of her is likely to be because she is out scouring the area for the little chap.

From what I gather the owner had a heart attack which is why he had the accident so no doubt not sure how badly injured/ill he is

So sorry to hear about the accident. Very often when dogs run off after a car accident they hide up close by as this is the last place they saw their owners. Rowan will be very scared so will probably only venture out late at night or early morning to look for food. Get posters put up all around the area so the locals can keep a look out for him. You shouls also contact all vets in case he has been picked up and handed in. Make sure you inform the dog warden and all rescue centres in the area as well. It would also be a good idea to contact the local radio station and ask them to put out an appeal. Most importantly send a photo of Rowan to admin@doglost.co.uk quoting  ID 16250 and your postcode so we can get his poster made up. Once photo is on site you can view and print off his poster by clicking on to Dog Poster 1 at the top left of his page, you must be logged on. Good luck with the search, hope he is home soon.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
