I have no idea. I certainly haven’t seen any. I just hope he’s managing to eat something.

Just wondering if there are any pheasant rearing pens in that area - I've never actually walked in Highridge woods. If so, the young birds are pretty stupid at this time of year so Bobby will have a fairly easy food supply. Maybe look out for signs of feathers, bones etc where he might have made a kill?
Fran
Bobby has now been missing for 6 days with no further sightings. We are assuming he is still hiding in the woods and are searching there morning and night when it’s quiet but no luck as yet. We ask that everyone in the local area keeps looking for pissible sightings in gardens fields etc.
Fran
Update.
Bobby was possibly sighted this morning in the Highridge Woods where he went missing near Tweed Lane end. We believe he is hiding in that area and only coming out in the dark. We need sightings of him so we can determine exactly where he is but we urge anyone not to shout or chase him. Please just let us know if you spot him. He will be very frightened now and will not come to you. We spent the night in the woods last night and most of today and have several experienced people helping us. Thank you for all the support x

Just to update owner is doing all she can to find Bobby and we have very kind members and local community helping - please if anyone sees Bobby do not chase or call him ring number above with location. He is a very frightened nervous little dog and if chased or frightened he could bolt away from the area or onto a road. J. x

Thank you for all the updates Fran. In view of where you live, it might be a good idea to focus more southwards.....Holmwood Common etc. Some people have used drones to spot missing dogs and Bobby's colour would show up quite well. Was his lead attached to a collar or harness? Have you informed Network Rail too? Although well fenced, there is the Dorking to Holmwood track quite close and it has footpaths crossing it via stiles in several places.

Ok will do x

Fran I have further shared to Dog Lost West Sussex and Horsham and Surrounding Areas FB pages in case Bobby is trying to find his way back to home I have asked if anyone sees him not to call or chase but to ring you on the number here with location. J. x

Not impossible, but very unlikely, I think. Poster around the area he went missing, and post flyers through doors there too. He may have taken refuge near where he went missing, or is hiding in the woods. when searching for him wear the same deodorant/perfume you use on day to day basis, as he will recognize the scent, and your the one he trusts. And of course take with you his carrier. COULD A TRACKER DOG HELP HERE? Paws xd.
Fran
Bobby has only been in England since August and he was lost 20 miles from where he lives. Do you think he could find his way from Brockham where he had never been before to Billingshurst?? Is that possible?

Hi Fran
It's not impossible for Bobby to make his way home provided his lead hasn't got caught up anywhere, so can he get close or in to a garden area if he does get back? If you have a garden, leave the gate open. If you have a little are outside up under cover, you could try hanging dirty clothing out there to help the scent to waft ( if you have to leave in the rain, it's better than nothing. Will continue to share etc, good luck.
Fran
Thank you Julie. I could try I suppose but I’m not sure how long his bed would last in a car park in the woods and if it’s pouring with rain would it not wash away any smell? The dog roamed the streets for 3 years and he was original seen by tree cutters bolting very fast through the forest. I can’t heko thinking he is mikes away now in which case no one would recognise him . But I’ll try and get a blanket there. I live 20 miles from where he was lost .

Fran if not already done can you leave his bed/blanket from his bed or item of your worn clothing where he went missing from in case he returns he may settle there with a familiar scent. Bobby is posted on Dog Lost Surrey FB page so all members are aware. J. x

For those asking, I am the owner of Bobby. I really appreciate all the help being offered. As time goes on I am getting increasing worried and distressed as you can imagine. Please note the following. He was lost by my dog walker in High Ridge Woods Brockham. This is 20 miles from where I live and therefore he is not at all familiar with the area and nor am I. He is a rescue dog from Greece who spent 3 years roaming the streets so it is in his mentality to roam. He is also very wary and nervous of strangers and I believe that he is either hiding in the area or has run miles away by now in which case noone will know about him. We are putting up posters in the area where he was lost and posting leaf;ets but if he has run miles this will not help. All vets and the dog warden have been notified as has Pet Log. I am very very worried that he hasn't even been spotted yet. If anyone does see him I'm not sure how easy it will be for anyone to actually catch him. All I can ask is that people keep looking and sharing and pray he is found soon.
scooby
I am not the owner but I do know her and am in contact with her. We are currently searching the area on the assumption he may be caught up in the undergrowth near Tweed Lane, although it's also possible he is actively avoiding human contact because he is a rescue dog and very wary of strangers. If he was still running around there would probably be more sightings of him.
alikat
I have also asked Jenny Tiga Brown if she can help, in case this boy is caught up somewhere. It would be really helpful to have some feedback from the owner?

Walked across the fields behind Brockham village and a part of the coach road yesterday - put up 8 posters. Sorry I can't do more but struggling with a virus. Owner needs to poster Betchworth Golf Club, Dorking Golf Club, the Deepdene Trail, Medivet in Brockham. I have sent link to Mole Valley Dog Warden (very good!) and to a dog walker based in Brockham plus other local people.Last edited: 2018-10-11 09:55:27 by alikat

Printing some posters and planning to walk the "coach road" this afternoon. It might be worth contacting Betchworth Golf Club?
