Sadly the dog found in Swaffham (link below) is not a match for Rudy...
Checked Sharon blue's link - does look like the markings - hope owner can have a look. It is about 50 miles from Clare though.
similar dog on here ?? http://www.animalwardenservices.co.uk/aws_Found_Dogs.asp

Wanted to update you all that we have had a very positive sighting yesterday morning (Tuesday 14th) in Clare!!
I can’t be any more specific with the exact location as the last think I want is lots of people descending on the area although I know that a lot of you guys would drop everything and get down there.
Pls be very aware now also in residential areas and anywhere where wheelie bins are, as well as in the rural areas around Clare/Poslingford/Hundon/Wickhambrook/Denston and Stradishall.
Please can I ask everyone to be vigilant and keep their eyes open, particularly those in the areas above
If you think you see him, please call me directly on 07795380065. If I don’t pick up for whatever reason, may I ask you kindly to leave me a voicemail or send me a text message. I will come back to you asap.
If possible please try to take a picture of the dog.
This is a real glimmer of hope we have had. It’s been a very tough last 9 months trying to find Rudy. I haven’t given up on him and not will I.
Please can I ask you to share and bore the pants off your friends and family with this update
There has been a recent sighting this week of Rudy in Clare, Suffolk - as his Facebook page "Find Rudy" states.
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
Sighting this morning 5th of October

Taken from Rudy’s Facebook group.....
We have had a very good sighting of Rudy called in near to Clare. This was at 10.30am this morning and the lady who saw him was able to identify him from poster we showed her. We believe he is moving again.
Please can I ask you all to be extra vigilant in the following areas:
Brockley green
And all nearly villages
We believe that he is retracing his old routes.

Please can you call me immediately on 07795380065 if you think you see him.
I think that sighting was not in the end Rudy
Confirmed sighting on Tuesday 26th September 2017. The sighting was in CLARE , please could everyone still look out for Rudy and contact Patrick 07795 380065 asap if you see him. Rudy DOES NOT have a collar on him. Please keep looking X
Possible sighting 20/09/2017 in the Halstead area. Please keep vigilant. Clare
Please keep a look out in areas Earls Colne, Great Tey all the way through to Haverhill. But please do not forget the old places where Rudy has been sighted in the past Witham, Rivenhall, Silverend, Cressing, Perry Green, Bradwell, Kelvedon, Coggleshall. Rudy has travelled a lot and it's always a possibility he is returned to areas where he has been before. We believe he is still out there, possibly in more rural areas where only a few people walk so please everyone keep a look out for him. Also if on Faceboook join his page #findrudy.
I have re shared on all the Essex sights I have
Fingers crossed for Rudy
There are many volunteers on "Team Rudy" who are always on the lookout for him in the many areas that he has been sighted. Posters are being put up/ replaced / renewed where necessary. There have been no recent sightings. So vigilance in all areas from Coggeshall, Essex through to Haverhill / Stradishall, Suffolk is needed & greatly appreciated. All those on "Team Rudy" are aware of the need to contact Patrick if Rudy is sighted, but if anyone else spots him please note time, day, where and direction of travel and fone or txt the number above /on the poster- Do not chase, call his name or follow him. We do not want him spooked. Hopefully he will settle somewhere again soon and we will get a positive sighting of him. Eyes peeled everyone please!!!!!Last edited: 2017-08-27 16:20:13 by Dee

2 Possible sightings last night (18/07/2017) Kedington Suffolk area. We cannot be 100%, but with recent possible sightings in similar areas it is possible it is Rudy .
Clare Admin Find Rudy
The owner lost Rudy in CM7
As Rudy has been out a while he has been moving about
So I expect if sighted takes a while to get there
Hence dog moves on
Fingers so crossed for Rudy
So please keep sharing

Admin Find Rudy
Just to update, we have had a weekend of postering in and around the Suffolk area to try and get Rudy's story out there far and wide. Clare Admin Find Rudy. Thank
Hi Patlucky, Any help is really appreciated, we have been posting on Rudy's page since day 1, if you need anything further, give a shout and thank you. Clare x x
Cluck hello if you know the area he could be in
Then Ray is you best bet but you need to have a sighting
I so wish I was nearer I would come help
Good luck to you all
I could ask for help in the area on face book?
Morning, we have had Jenny up with her 2 tracker dogs Tiga and Yogi x x
Has Rudy's owner contacted Ray Dedicoat for advice if he thinks he knows where he may be? www.raydedicaot.com
Update on Find Rudy from Pat. Admin Find Rudy
Good morning everybody

This is day 155. That's how long he's been gone. 155 days since Rudy was let down so badly by those meant to be looking after him.

I've tried my best to find him. I've been supported by so many amazing people. And they are still with me standing side by side, offering encouragement and hope

I owe Rudy one more big push. There is a chance he is still out there. I have had some unconfirmed reports come through recently. I can't share exactly where, as the professional advice I'm getting says we need to minimise people spooking him (if it is him 🙏🏻)

This weekend I need to ask for some help guys. Yes I'm desperate and I wouldn't ask publicly on here unless I really needed your help. So here goes...

I have a map of an area he could be in. I have split map into segments and I'm asking for 4 teams of 2 who can help poster and leaflet a segment over the weekend. One driving, one jumping out and sticking up a poster.

I already have several teams of 2 ready to go. I have all posters ready.

The areas of interest are:

Grreat wratting
Little wratting
Great Thurlow
Little Thurlow
Stoke by clare
Little Bradley


I'm asking for 2 hours of your time. Please, if you can do anything to help over the weekend, please send me a text message on 07795380065. I can't always pick up Facebook but my phone doesn't leave my hand or pocket.

If you know anybody locally to these places, please can you share this and ask them for help. Thank you.

I just want Rudy home and for him to meet Harry. I'd be the happiest bloke in the world if that could somehow happen

Thank you so much xxx
Abe babe
I live in Hundon and am in contact with Nicole who is organising a local group of helpers.
Fingers crossed for Rudy

Is it possible to have the poster updated with possible sightings near HMP Highpoint Prison and Kedington Suffolk please. Admin Team Rudy
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
Possible sighting of Rudy last night (29th of June) at Kedington nr. Haverhill if seen please contact the owner immediately
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
Rudy is featured in the East Anglian Daily Times, hopefully this will bring some news...
Fingers crossed for some good news
Yes owner aware and Jenny Tiga Brown is down today tracking.
I asked the owner is he had been in touch with the prison as they may be feeding him plus might be CCTV
He is going there tomorrow so
fingers crossed
Has anyone contacted the prison ?
In case they are feeding him which could happen
Take it the owner is aware?
Serenitypets.....this is the post from Rudy,s page hope it helps...

Good evening everyone

I wanted to share some news from today. We have had a report that Rudy may have been seen outside the gates of high point prison (Stradishall in Newmarket). The sighting was roughly on the 1st June.

I'm taking this as a positive at this point. Granted it is a couple of weeks ago but the gentleman who reported it was shown several pictures of him and was fairly adamant it was him.

This could possibly tie in with a report we had some 5 weeks ago when a cyclist thinks he may have seen him between Hundon and stoke by clare. We did do a search of the area back then but ultimately we couldn't find any evidence that he was there.

The reality is that this might or might not be him. I've got to think positive and I've got to let people know that he might be that far out. It's a good 20 miles but across fields it is certainly within the realms of possibility that he's still travelling out.

Please, please, please if you are in this area or perhaps know people who live in and around these places SPREAD THE WORD and let them know that Rudy might be in the area.

My number is 07795380065 if you have any information. No matter how small and insignificant you think it might be, please let me know

Thank you
Bumped on BIGGSD
Also shared on a few FB sites in Essex
Fingers crossed
Fingers so crossed for Rudy
Do we have any further details of the sighting in Stradishall, like which side of the prison (it's got sites on both sides of the A143) and direction of travel? Just helps give an idea of where to search on my lunchbreaks and way home as I work in the area :)

Doggy day care and Doggy Lodge are one of the same...I was speaking to the ladies yesterday in their DoggyDayCare van....

Rudy ran up the hill into the distance and out of site....But as owner turned up, we saw Rudy running down again and towards the woods....owner followed...but unfortunately by the time he caught up, he had disappeared again....we drove around to the woods and searched the woods, but no sign, but fortunately he is staying in the same area....there are lots of,people out looking for him and placed in different areas where sightings have been.

Hi all. Thanks so much for your help and searching. We were so close to him tonight with lots of sightings in witham but he's so scared we've lost him again. Search being called off for the night but will resume tomorrow. There is a page called find Rudy with details and can be accessed here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/388105591550222/
Trying to keep everything in one place for ease of coordination. Thanks again everyone, we have been blown away by your support and help xxx
Fingers crossed that lovely Rudy will go to her owner .
Rudy has been seen a few minutes ago in Church Street Witham. He has run to Rickstones road and Dorothy Sayers. He is extremely spooked so we appreciate eyes to look as Patrick the owner is in the area. He is looking to run to the fields so we want to keep him on Street as Patrick alone will be the only one to coax him . Update laburnum drive Witham another sighting. All hands to Witham if possible in that area . Thank you

Do you have chip number- if so update on here. You state He is chipped but number not available as just moved from Westcliff Essex then you need to phone petlog to advise missing and do a change of details form ASAP. If picked up and scanned they will have no way of contacting you.
Fingers crossed
Could he find his way to old address
Maybe alert people who live there now just in case
