This beautiful boy has gone missing near Midhurst but could be anywhere,

There are lots of news articles about him to keep it going.

He has arthritis as well.

I have seen the press coverage which is great that the news is getting out and about. I will keep spreading the word and hope for good news soon.

15years old? Sadly it’s highly likely he is dead somewhere. Happens a lot when elderly dogs run off, especially somewhere they are not familiar with.
Very sad.

Oh just seen your username, I hope you aren’t the owner OP, sorry that was insensitive.

No, he's not mine, Im just trying to get it seen as much as possible.

He was only in the garden for 4 minutes, I don't think he can run due to the arthritis.

Its just so sad.

Spillo has been on DogLost for a while now. I am afraid I don't think this will have a happy outcome. If he was alive, I think he would have been seen by someone by now - No sightings to date. (There was one but it turned out to be another dog from the area). I hope I'm wrong but I've been helping look for lost dogs and following their fortunes on DogLost for some years.

I am optimistically hanging on to the belief that as a body has not been found there is still hope he is alive. Fat lady sings and all that.....

I agree with pp that I can’t see this having a happy ending , although I hope I’m wrong . It was originally being suggested that someone took him thinking he was stray but I can’t see how that can be with all the local publicity .

I had a look at their facebook page, still no news sad

There must be posters everywhere, they have been doing so much looking at the facebook page, I really hope they get him home.

Don't give up and make him too hot to handle.

4 weeks today since he went, presumed stolen sad

Floralnomad Wed 26-Aug-20 13:24:42

@BrianPotter why would anyone steal him

BrianPotter Wed 26-Aug-20 13:31:38

There was an interview on their f.book page, where the man said that whoever takes a dog, doesn't really stop to look at the age/breed. Its an opportunist.

I hope someone did think he was a stray and is looking after him.

Floralnomad Wed 26-Aug-20 13:44:19

But that’s the point , if someone had picked him up they would surely have just handed him back by now , I feel desperately sorry for the owners but this dog is of no value to anyone else so I can’t see how he’s been stolen . It’s the not knowing that’s so awful .
