Father-of-three Bruce Newbigging said his family are growing increasingly concerned for Toby, who ran off during a walk in the Kersey Uplands last Thursday afternoon (November 16), at around 3pm.

Mr Newbigging said: “My son (Ally, 22) took him out and he took off over the fields in Kersey Uplands, running after a pheasant.

“A local farmer tried to help and headed off on a quad bike, but said he had never seen a dog move so fast. He went into the wood but wasn’t seen coming out of the other side.

“He has not returned and we have been out walking miles trying to find him. He is microchipped and my son has been on all the missing dog websites.

“He is a beautiful dog. My son absolutely loves him. It is a surprise he hasn’t been picked up by now, but we hope he will.”

To help the family, call Mr Newbigging on 07734 595404.
