Blake went missing from his home in Perlethorpe, Nottinghamshire last Monday along with Bella, who was taken in from a neighbouring farm just over a month ago.

The duo have been inseparable ever since with Bella believing Blake is her mum and the search for the animals led to a £1,000 reward being offered for the pair by ITV presenter Philip Schofield.

Miss Haywood said: ‘I have been contacted by a few people who have said they have seen a dog that matches Blake’s description.

‘We are desperate for any information at all and just hope that this may be Blake that has been seen. We have high hopes that they are in the area.’
