I am having trouble uploading the photo here. I have e-mailed admin a photo of a similar looking dog as the owner is struggling to find one.

Please note that the dog at Leigh Dogs Home is not Sweep - the owner has personally visited there today and the dog is male.

Please can e-mail alerts go out too.

Here is an update from Bob, fingers and paws crossed!! x

Hi Claire, Thank you so much for all the info., so. so helpful Looking at the photo. from the Leigh Dogs Home, it does look just like Sweep !! Although I did speak to them this morning and they did assure me that they would contact me should anyone bring a dog in to them that met my description of Sweep. I am surprised therefore, that they didn't phone me. Had they have done, then she wouldn't have the stress of having to stay overnight in a kennel environment.!!

I will phone them tomorrow and arrange to go over and check if it is her. Unfortunately I have an appointment in Northwich in the morning which will be impossible to change, therefore, although I will phone as early as poss. it will depend on how early I can get a response from them.

I will contact you immediately I have anything to report, good or bad.

Once again my sincere thanks for your response and for all the support you have provided thus far.

Regards Bob.

I have just spoken to the owner of Sweep. She went missing at 8am this morning, the dogs were all being fed as routine, and when he looked round, she wasnt there.

He is going to try and get me a photo tomorrow, but please can everyone look out for this little old lady.

Stay safe Sweep until you are found x
