Maybe worth having a look at the found section as black lab retriever has appeared recently in NG17 not sure if that's nearby but worth a look paws crossed.

Or This one is chipped to a Mrs C bell in Suffolk, but not seen the vet for 3yrs. If that is Elvis' history:
Is this him?

Found this on Gumtree posted in the last hour, no details but worth a check x

Found dog 43680 worth a look?
Advertised in this weeks Countryman's Weekly magazine.
Spoke to owner, nothing has been heard still of Elvis:(
I am bumping him because owner is now back from holiday.
I have spoken to owner. Elvis has not been sighted since 2 weeks yesterday. The woods he was in are not known to him but the owner knows all the farmers and gamekeepers in the area and they would not have done any harm to him. owner has done loads of postering and contacted the right authorities, she has contacted Network Rail but they have had no sightings of him and they have searched everywhere within 10 miles of either side of the woods on horsesback. He was last seen by dustmen at the side of the A416 where they approached him but he ran off. Owner feels he may have been hit by a vehicle and is dead. I am hoping this is not the case and he will come back to the woods.
He might come back to the wood but owners need to poster further afield to get some more sightings coming in.
Owners have come back but Elvis has moved on.
Oh dear, I hope he is an understanding gamekeeper! Come on Elvis, time to come home xx
Owners due back overnight, so they will be up there in the morning. Steph has tried his whistle but he is not responding to it. He has been taking the game keepers birds, so has a full tummy. Finger crossed for tomorrow.
His owner is due home tomorrow, so we will wait and see what happens xLast edited: 2012-04-18 12:32:35
Any news on Elvis? Hope he is soon back home, safe and sound xx
Elvis is still in the wooded area and owners truck is there with food in and he can go in if he chooses.
Really hope that Elvis will soon be back in the building; in his own home. All xd.
Asked for update.
Have passed on all that info and given advice.
Try a BBQ, labs usually are food orientated so he will love the smell of sausages and chicken etc and lay a trail from different directions to the BBQ, do not call his name at all or go after him, act in a calm manner. See how that goes. Maybe ask at the shooting club if they have a bitch in season at all.
Just had a call from Steph, Elvis is in the woods where he goes shooting with owner but he will not approach them he keeps running off. Owner not due back until next Thursday.
Sightings of Elvis on Kelham Hills and in Averham Park.

Alerts sent out to helpers in NG22,23,24,25.
Have put Elvis on twitter + will circulate.
Put on Facebook pages Central and East Mids & Warks
They have no photos of him, so we may have to send a photo off the data base.
Had reply to my email: Elvis's owners are on holiday and he was being looked after by their nephew. Elvis is a working gundog and went misssing at 8pm last night. He doesn't like men very much but will usually come when called. He has been reported to the DW, vets and the Police.
Sent an email asking for him to contact me.
Info and Advice sheet sent.
Tried to call but it is a dental surgery and won't be open until tomorrow!!
Sent message for photo
