There is always hope. Never give in. He is either surviving out there or someone has taken him in. Many years ago a sheltie was found after being missing for a few months. I think he belonged to June Johns. was his name Buck???

Lost Sheltie, Harvey

Post by Kathleen Cooper on Tue 21 Aug 2012, 11:47

I would dearly love to think he is safe somewhere, either in a wee den that he has made or someone has taken him in, the latter being unlikely as he would not willingly have gone with anyone. He was very much my dog, my protector, a very faithful boy, always at my feet when I was stationary or following me. This is what makes it so disquietening, to think he cannot get home. My husband goes up the hill daily to where he was last seen and to search around the bracken/bramble area but it is a mammoth task. I have been given the loan of night vision equipment but so far have not had the opportunity to use it. Certainly it would pick up any animals eyes very clearly if they were hiding, but looking at me. It is now a full calendar month since he disappeared. We keep hoping.

Oh Kathleen I really know what you are going through as I was once in a similar situation myself though my sheltie had lots of sightings I never seemed to be in the right place at the right time. My boy was finally found by a man out shooting with his springer spaniel.
One thing I do remember being told at the time was that a lost dog will keep within a 5 mile radius for the first few days but gradually widens this distance as time goes by. I pray that you find him and gets home soon.

It is reported on another list there may be a sighting of Harvey. Apparently if it is him Kathleen says he is about 3 miles from home but just will not come to the house. He has been gone 3 months and it would just be brilliant if he could be caught.

This dog, which may or may not be Harvey was sighted nearly 2 weeks ago on a road in our village which would take him only 2 minutes to trot home. It would appear that if this is Harvey, he has stayed fairly close but exceedingly well hidden from humans. The fox trap is probably our best bet. So far we have caught a greedy hedgehog who enjoyed the bonio plus sausages! Just have to keep looking and hoping.

We are all hoping that Harvey will come home to you and it is uplifting to have had a possible positive sighting so recently after all this time.

I have just spent about half an hour writing a reply, pressed a button and it has vanished.
The latest news of Harvey is that he is still missing 14 weeks on. There have been 3 recent possible sightings of a dog like Harvey, but so far no success in trapping him. We have two fox traps up but so far only cats and hedgehogs. Fireworks tonight so that won't have helped. We just have to keep looking and hoping. I have replaced all our posters reminding people that he is still missing. It is getting rather cool at night now, so hopefully he will make himself more visible while foraging for food.

I have been so worried for you all, is there any more news?

I lost my first sheltie for 9days he was only 18months and we left him at my Mum and Dads house the other side of Nottingham so he didn't know the area, he got out the front door and run off looking for us, the worry was terrible wondering if he was alright, people kept ringing up after seeing him and somebody took him in for the night and let him go next morning. Eventually my husband sat in the car all night near my Mums house and he saw him, the relief was indescribable so don't give up hope Shelties are very good at finding their way home.

I hope you have a positive result and you get him back, I will be thinking about you all.

Iris.

I have been in touch with a guy who is prepared to set up his own remote night vision cameras which record any movement near my fox traps which will maybe let us know if there is any movement near the crates and if there is, is it Harvey. He cannot do this until another 10 days but it is a wonderful offer, and if nothing materialises in the meantime, the cameras may tell us more. It will be 16 weeks on Saturday since he has been missing. Only recently have my other two shelties gone back to playing with their squeaky toys, so it has taken them quite a long time to come to terms with their pal being missing. Harvey has always been here as far as they are concerned.
