The lady managed to get a photo of the 'stray' dog & it seems it was from a nearby farm, as it wandered off with another dog down a lane to a farm. I have compared markings & although very similar to Ben, sadly it is not him. The stray dog had a lot more white on its tail & back & slightly different facial markings. Owner of Ben informed. The search goes on.

There has been a sighting of a dog which looks very much like Ben in the Wadebridge area towards Padstow (PL27). The person is down on holiday & tried to coax a very skinny collie (she thought cross) to her car, but her own dog growled & it ran off. She has looked at Bens photo & said it could be him, but hard to tell. She will try to get a photo if she sees it again ( or get hold of it). There are farms in area, so it could be a local farm dog too. Have informed Ben's owner.

When he didn't come back the night we went looking.The next. 3 days we searched all the areas he would have been.He was last seen at the top of our lane which he has walked so many times and come back.
Have you searched the area around the farm Elaine in case he his caught up in hedges ect very strange that no sightings at all .

Buzz and now Ben. Are they being stolen to sell on, do you think? Most farmers round here use Mole Valley Farmers. I've emailed them to ask if they'll put a notice up, but they have a lot of stores. If I can work out which are nearest to missing dogs, I'll send them a poster. If I was looking to buy a working dog, their notice boards are a place I'd look.
