Missing dog reunited with owner


A JACKSDALE man who lost his dog down a badger sett has been reunited with his beloved pet Bobby.

David Coope held a week-long vigil for the six-year-old small Patterdale-Jack Russell cross after he disappeared in High Holborn Woods, Codnor, on Thursday, December 29.

David, 27, had given up hope of ever finding his dog when someone in Marlpool discovered him a week later.

David’s father-in-law, David Harrison, said: “Bobby has lost a lot of weight and has many scratch marks on him, but at least he is now home safe and sound.”
