Where are you Edie?
This one is up for adoption does not say he was found as stray but worth checking as his ear sticks up also x

Is the owner of Eddie checking this page do we know?
Eddie is featured in todays Countrymans Weekly
theres one on raystead rescue named bubbles, you may want to check him out..?

Nominated for Countrymans weekly magazine
Not sure if you would have seen this one or not, so here it is. http://stokenchurchdogrescue.org.uk/dogs/midge The ears are the same as Eddies, not sure whether there is a white patch on chest or not due to Midge wearing a harness. Fingers crossed for you
Patterdale black with white markings found 7th April Widness WA8 on Animal Wardens
Bumping Eddies page as he is featured in the DogLost column of the May edition of Dogs Today magazine out now
I do hope this brings news
Which quarry please? x
DogLostClaire Gresty - Area Co-ordinator & Police Liaison - North West
Had this overnight (thanks Jo)

Someone who brought a dog swimming was telling me about a dog that appears to be living rough near them. They described him/her as small scruffy brown/black (possibly Patterdale type) who has been seen for anything up to a couple of years but no one has been able to catch the dog. Its always seen around the quarry in Skelmersdale

This isn't too far from where Eddie went missing, has anyone else seen this dog? Please share x
I noticed on another site photos of Eddie as a poster, may I suggest this is put on here as gives more of an idea of how he looks? Also on some of the photos on poster noticed that his ear doesn't always stay up which is what I presumed it did, can you clarify please. Hope he turns up soon, look everyday whilst searching for hemp
Hope Eddie will be found soon. All xd.
Elaine Tinker and Hemps mum
A year without Eddie, it's so hard to keep going I know, but we have to keep believing we will get our little ones home, it is almost 8 months since my two girls Tinker and Hemp were stolen. Stay strong, I'm sure you will get him home soon xxxx
Alison I so hoped your boy would be home before now but just leaving you a hug and a promise folk care and are looking.

2015 we both get our dogs back my friend! Another hug and hang in there xxxx
Heartbreaking to know it's now a whole year since Eddie went missing ... I so wish he could be found safe and well ...

At 2am this morning, a lady saw a black Patterdale at Bell Lane. This lady knows her breeds and she tried to catch this dog but it ran off. This is the same area Eddie went missing, and also other sightings of a dog matching Eddies's description have been seen here. Please continue to look out for Eddie x
Could this be eddie ?

possible kennel sighting? x
I DO Hope that the Council Scanned the Poor Dog for a Chip ?
A little black male dog wearing a red collar was sadly killed by a bus today on Old Chester Road. Rockferry Birkenhead on the Wirral, dog was collected by the council.

One in at Leigh Dogs and Cats home looks similar (no idea of sex or anything as they don't list it). Reference Wigan 242. Have posted over to Eddie's FB page as well.

For the past 2 days, a black Patterdale has been seen running near the canal at Martland Mill. This dog was on its own both times and was seen limping. The lady tried to catch this dog both times, but was unsuccessful. This is the location that Eddie went missing from.

Please continue to look out for him x

Thank you Diane67, really appreciate your help. Alison is desperate to have him home.

There has been another possible sighting at 6.55 this morning, in and out of the gardens in Marsh Green.

Alison is doing a brilliant job, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before he's home x
Been for a drive round Norley Hall n marshgreen, spoke to quite a few ppl walking dogs n made them aware, couple of ppl seen a black dog, on The Green n top of pemberton but no definite sighting
Possible sighting posted on a local forum WiganWorld

Posted by: moodysue (10717)

Marsh green could be possible, because when I took the kids to school yesterday morning a dog just like that ran across the road in front of me...The girls where concerned but I told them that it had probably just got out from the garden as it had a collar on... so It was someones dog...

I hadnt seen this thread then.... Im off work today so I will keep a look out and ride round the estate just to take a look

PS should of said It was Norley Shops where I saw one like it... on its own
