A Jack Russell missing from home since Monday was found this afternoon after a farmer spotted her among greenhouses at Gosberton Risegate.

The farmer called owner Lynne Healey at about 4.10pm today, who ran across fields to collect Pickle.

Relieved Lynne said: “She is very thirsty and very stressed but I am very happy we’re reunited.”

The farmer spotted Lynne’s “missing” posters that she had put up along Siltside.

Lynne said: “I literally had to run across the fields – stupidly I did it in flip-flops and I have got lots of nettle stings.”

She thanked our newshounds for posting the story on our website and Facebook pages and the many people who have messaged their support.

She’s a very friendly, particularly bouncy, over the top sort of dog.

Lynne told us: “Thank you so much for your help today – we really appreciate the extra coverage.”

• Can you help find a missing pet Jack Russell dog called Pickle?

The three-year-old terrier slipped through a gap in a fence at her home Shepperson’s Avenue, Gosberton Risegate, at about 8am on Monday and was last seen by her owner, Lynne Healey, as she dashed along Siltside.

One of Lynne’s neighbours alerted her to Pickle’s escape and gave her a lift in the car to pursue her pet.

Lynne said: “I saw her actually running down Siltside Road and I was literally minutes behind her.”

But then Pickle disappeared from view and hasn’t been seen since.

Lynne said: “I have a feeling someone has picked her up.

“She’s a very friendly, particularly bouncy, over the top sort of dog.”

Pickle was wearing a red collar at the time she disappeared.

She has a mostly white body, one brown ear and one white ear with brown freckles.
