OWNERS Erika and Carl Toutenhoofd had just about given up hope of seein g Jack, their pet Jack Russell, after he had been missing for 16 days.

But Jack was found in some road brambles by Louise Bedford, a family friend of the Toutenhoofds, whilst she was out walking her pack of five dogs and reunited who were understandably shocked and relieved.

Jack is said to be making a good reciovery after being placed on a glucose drip in the wake of the incident but what of the disappearance? It seems he had become trapped down a rabbit bolthole where he spent most of the 16 days he was away.
