Despite their best efforts, the family couldn’t find Tilly anywhere and were hoping someone from the community would see him.


Thankfully, that’s exactly what happened. After Tilly’s absence was spread around on social media, a sheep farmer came forward with a dog who they believed to be the missing pup.

Apparently, Tilly had made his way to the farm and took up herding sheep. It seems his natural border collie instincts kicked in and he went with it.
