A long shot as out of area and although does look white in one photo, appears to be a very light tan / fawn in others, but felt it was worth flagging up:
Paw xd for a good result here

4 dogs found wandering today by dog warden in Swale, am sharing this link with anyone missing a labradoodle in case they were stolen: https://www.facebook.com/swalestraydogs/posts/1982301842015929:0
Thank you Geoffa for keeping an eye out for walter. This is not him as the dog in the picture has a much bigger and brown nose. Still have hope he is out there.

Stacey - this is really a long shot but my first thought was Walter when I saw the post. If Walter has been clipped, could he look like the one on this link:
Has the sighted dog been seen again by anyone ?
Thank you Jot. We are local to Port Seton so check everyday. We have also asked all local shops, fishermen and people to keep an eye out.

Has anyone gone out to the Port Seton sighting to look for that dog as such a good match for Walter...the two places are incredibly close geographically...on same bit of coast??? 16mins drive apart..just 8 miles from where he was lost to that sighting a few days agoLast edited: 2017-04-19 17:55:51 by Jot cotswolds

From Walter's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/findwalter/):

Update 16th April: Last night at 8pm approx a white doodle type dog was seen near Port Seton Harbour. The dog approached someone's car and was trying to get in before wondering off in the direction of the power station. The dog was described as light in colour but very dirty and thin. If this was your dog or you know who's dog it was please let us know. Otherwise please can everyone in this area be aware that this could be walter and to keep an extra eye out when out and about. Thank you.

Given the recent local sightings this is a long shot but may be worth checking:

"Found 14 Mar 2017
Llanybydder Carmarthenshire, West Wales,
Now with the Dog Warden 0845 658 04 45"
The dog mentioned in previous comment had been reunited with its owner. It was not Walter
Facebook had a lost dog found in girdle toll
It is Walters double even had a red collar, know it's quite a bit away but you never know . They said he was taken to Irvine Police Office North Ayrshire

Thanks to everyone who is continuing to search for Walter. Just to update everyone there have been some potential sightings in the past week or so although none have been confirmed:

26th Dec, 9:30 am approx - Small white dog seen running around without an owner in a field in Aberlady (Luffness Estate)

27th Dec, 5pm approx - In same area, at back of same field in the above sighting something "white with four legs" seen crossing the road, just avoiding a car, heading from one set of woods to another. No further information given due to it happening so quick and it being dark at that time of night.

*A deer carcass found in next field which something has been feeding off. Not sure how significant this is as it could easily have been foxes or other animals. Body parts including the head were missing so we are unsure if this was Walter but still a possibility.

31st Dec - 2pm approx - Yellowcraigs Beach, small doodle type dog matching Walters description seen running frantically on the beach with no apparent owner. Red collar was noted too which is positive but witness said dog may have been wearing a harness but was hard to tell. If wearing a harness it is not Water but witness said it was not clear, and could easily have been dirt on his coat as he has now been missing for some time.

*Food has been left out in the area which has gone missing overnight, but again this may be anyones dog that has taken it. We are now looking into getting a hold of some surveillance equipment to monitor more closely

I hope someone finds Walter soon and that he is reunited .Is there anyone searching for him ?

It seems that this lady[my previous comment] has a vendetta against the people whom she said had Walter. I am sorry if any hopes were built up. She has been banned for time wasting!
DogLostSharon - Social Media Team
A lady has posted on FB page that she knows who has Walter. Just trying to make contact & will pass on any details. X
Reading through comments on Facebook it seems the owner did not see Walter go into the water...I think there was something in the water but it wasn't clear whether it was Walter or not...

This is so sad, I saw your post yesterday when a friend of mine shared it, I hope he is OK.Last edited: 2016-12-10 18:12:08 by Skywalker99
