A Facebook page has been set up to help find a cocker spaniel missing from Ingoldsby since June 27.
Black and white male cocker spaniel Jack is a four-year-old rescue dog who had only been with his new owners for a day before going missing.
The latest update from Dog Lost Lincolnshire is that a dog matching Jack’s description was seen running from A52 towards Ropsley village yesterday evening. A car followed at a safe distance whilst calling police but he the pup was in a panic and turned back on himself to the crossroads with A52 at Ropsley and Welby.
Several people went out looking last night, but it proved a difficult search given the area has long grass, hedges, woods, crops, a quarry and the busy road, which it is suggested may attract Jack because of roadkill.
They are calling for people to share the dog lost poster to friends/family in any of the following villages via internet, and would also like to hear from any volunteers able to pin posters up in these villages and at junctions on sign posts: Ropsley, Welby, Haceby, Braceby, Oasby, Aisby, Heydour, Dembleby, Osbournby and Newton.
In a statement Dog Lost added: “Local farmers and police are aware and if you or friends see the dog, phone location in rather than approach or try to chase. Vets locally will also be updated.
“He is a long way from where trap was sighted and in a panic as very nervous. He isn’t calmly establishing an area but seems to be looking for his way home possibly to his foster or where he came from at adopters in Ingoldsby.
“It is a waiting game and trap will be monitored but I am not optimistic he will be back. If Jack is seen, please report immediately to police or telephone numbers on posters.
“Do not approach and please keep eyes open if travelling between the villages or along the A52.”
