This dog went missing on 17 March while on a walk with his owners in the woods in Clayhidon

between Cordwents and Shepherds Halt, Clayhidon.

His name is Bodie, he's extremely friendly and may have attached himself to another party of walkers.
If you have any information please call Helen Gendall at Shepherds Halt on 680593.

Update 24th March: A very relieved Helen rang on Sunday to say Bodie had re-appeared that morning covered in mud and very thin.

Probably been down a hole.

THANK YOU!
