Tiga the Beagle, of K9 Search Dogs, came all the way from Kent with his owner Jenny after Goochie’s lost page was found on Facebook by the charity.

The dog picked up scent from Goochie’s bed then followed a trail to a spot in the middle of the road near the house.

But owner Susan Harrison: “He just stopped, looked up at his owner as if to say, the trail has ended here. I think Goochie has been picked up from the middle of the road,” said devastated owner Susan Harrison.

“The charity does amazing work helping people find their pets, I can’t thank them enough, and also must thank everybody who has been out helping in searches - one woman came with her four Shiba Inu dogs from Essex.

There have been sightings at Bretton Cemetery, Paston, Thorpe Meadows boating lake and even a possible ighting at Ely where dog walkers went out in a bid to track the 16 year old dog.

“People are being so good. There’s so much support. Police called us with a lost dog that had been found, sadly not Goochie but when it was microchipped we found the owner and reunited them, so even if we don’t find our dog at least we are helping other dog owners.

“I just find my mind isn’t really on anything I do. It is so hard to concentrate. I just want Goochie back.”

Susan and her partner left the dog in a secure pen in a kennel in the garden of her partner’s farm at Thorney Dyke while they went to a wedding on Saturday May 16.

By the time they got home at 11pm the dog was gone.

The brown, beige and white dog is microchipped. There is a reward being offered for his safe return.

Missing posters are now up across Cambridgeshire and on the Lincolnshire and Norfolk borders along with Goochie’s own Facebook page.
