Thank you HNich2019 for posting this found dog and thank Medway Animal Warden for checking this dog against Boris so promptly, sadly not a match but certainly needed checking x

From Boris’s owner....
Boris has been missing for nearly 10 months. He had cigarette burns and was obviously used for coursing. We think he spent all his time,previously to being rescued, outside. He really hated being outside, unless on a run/walk 😪. It’s getting colder now and it breaks my heart to think of him being chained up outside…. Please bring him home.
He went missing on 27th February in Dunwich Forrest Suffolk

Hi Folks, we have everything crossed that Boris is amongst the 83 dogs recovered by Suffolk Police. Thanks again for all your help and thoughts. K&S
Really hoping Boris is found. x

Thank you AnnaMac, the sighted dog is not Boris, Boris's owner has confirmed this.
Could this be Boris ??
On Tuesday (16 March) Sussex Police seized 10 Lurcher and Spaniel type dogs from a location in Surrey.

They are asking anyone who has lost either a lurcher or spaniel to contact them by sending an email: with your contact details.
They have a dedicating team managing this and believe they may be stolen
I found out about Boris missing today :( Is he thought to be lost in Dunwich or stolen and taken elsewhere? I can look out for him in Dunwich area but wondered if he is thought to be possibly elsewhere. I hope the lovely boy is found safe and well xx
Really sorry to hear Boris may have been stolen. Keep thinking about him. Back out walking around Dunwich this afternoon so will keep looking.

CRN number received and status updated from missing to stolen.
Please if you are in the area do not stop looking for Boris, however as there have been no sightings of him the owner believes he may have been taken from the area.
Spent some time walking around Fredericks Mount yesterday and all around Dunwich forest this afternoon. Sorry to say no sightings of Boris. Will keep looking.

Unfortunately because of Covid restrictions we are unable to organise an actual search in the area, however if you are local and you want to walk, the area that is being concentrated on is Frederick’s Mount.
The fire tracks are all numbered so if you could let the owner know by text which area you have covered that would be brilliant.
Contact numbers are 07193076264 and 07925346309.
Have you asked locally if anyone has a search and rescue dog? I walked from Frederick's Mount car park to Helenas through the forest and didn't see or hear him sorry. Last edited: 2021-03-04 16:14:34 by Cathy
Let us know if you would like any specific areas searching. We are local and happy to go out looking wherever you think Boris could be /hasn't been searched.
I walked with my dog yesterday from Frederick’s Mount (Along road from 5 finger post to Dunwich) through to the Archery club entrance Post 41 (Westleton to Dunwich road) no sighting, I’ll be walking around there again today, also asking other walkers to be aware

A substantial reward is offered for the safe return of Boris.
Thanks for everyone's efforts / comments. The muzzle is a greyhound type with plenty of room to pant / drink. The single strap behind the ears is deliberately loosish so will (hopefully) come off without too much effort or if snagged. Still no sign of Boris but we still have everything crossed. K & S

Feeling worried for this dog because of the muzzle. Is it one he might be able to get off?
Been all round woods near St Helena this morning with 2 nosy dogs,no sign , any other suggestions as we are very local
We walked around the forest this morning looping back in the middle. Unfortunately no signs. Any suggestions where else we could look to cover more ground? We will be back out tomorrow and happy to look in a certain place.
Owmer couple of ideas......Try and get some tripe from the butchers amd leave on different areas. Also leave a scenting trail of your urine on a safe route back to an area that is safe
Thanks folks, appreciate all your efforts. Out looking again this morning, casting the net a bit wider. Fingers crossed.
Drove around all the main P places this evening - about 5.30 and the beach / café parking in case he might be hoping ‘his’ car / owners were there. Have also alerted lurcher owning friends in Walberswick in case he’s gone that way. Will be back there tomorrow with my dogs for a walk - hoping he will turn up safely very soon.
Spent an hour there mid-day today, no sign.
Will go again tomorrow- let’s hope he’s found soon.
Spent this afternoon walking around Dunwich Forest and surrounding areas. No signs of Boris. Keeping everything crossed and will keep looking.
Just returned from an hours walk around the RHS of Dunwich woods where there were a few others about to. Regrettably no sightings of Boris despite looking in amongst the woodland. I hope he has made his way to somewhere familiar. Shall keep a look out on our walks in the area.
Did a 5k walk on Westleton Heath this morning, but no sightings there. Hope to god you find him soon
Thanks all - appreciate all your efforts :) Keeping our fingers crossed.
We've been through woods near Westleton and over heath this morning but no sign of him there. Will try to get some posters out that way later if he's still not home. Hopefully he'll turn up today as will be hungry if can't get food with muzzle on.
Hi, Boris was last seen in the woods on the left hand side of the road from 5 ways carpark down towards Dunwich.
He has been gone about 24 hrs now so could have travelled anywhere. Your offer to help is appreciated - if you are going there for a walk please keep your eyes open. Thanks K & S
Roughly whereabouts was Boris lost? We were there yesterday and walked from car park 42 on the road from Westleton to Blythburgh.
We could go there today and have a look.
Hoping this gorgeous boy is found safe and soon. xxx
