hi karen truely sorry little eric is missing. Wondered if you had spoke to the families in those 2 farm houses they may have seen him and they'd surely spot him if he was running that area also there is a dog walker who walks a few dogs belonging to those farm houses( saw her returning a welsh springer which i felt could be my stolen welsh springer) i caught up with her later and i know shes down there daily, have you to spoken to her?I suppose you search little lane, traveller site and beyond regularally and have lots of posters up maybe put some posters up offering a reward by the gypsy site. Have you reported him missing to the west lancs dog wardens too cos they border wigan. And i hate to suggest it but have you contacted the highway dept,the M6 runs close by that walk doesnt it its a horrid thought but always best to check.sorry. Erics a cute puppy sized dog who hopefully has been taken in by someone close by,I spoke to every dog walker I saw and told Tays tale,you can rely on dog owners/lovers to look out for him, really hope hes home soon, best wishes from stolen Tays mum x
