Eddie's owner 'cried like a baby' once missing border collie was found

"And?" - Eddie this morning, making himself comfortable on the sofa

'Moving needle in a haystack' - he was found last night

The owner of Eddie - the border collie who spent 29 days missing on the Island - says the support from the Island community has been 'unreal'.

His mum, Karen, picked him up from Glen Auldyn last night after a reported sighting - saying he 'jumped into the car like nothing happened'.

The ex-Romanian rescue dog is in good health, with just a slight cut to his back right paw which apparently he 'isn't bothered about'. Last night he 'snored his head off'. 

There have been a number of sightings, including on the Mountain Road, as well as appeals on social media and on Manx Radio in the last few weeks, with Eddie's family stressing that he shouldn't be approached if seen. 

Eventually he wound up in Glen Auldyn 'just down the street' from where he first disappeared.

A 'timid' dog, it's said he would only have approached his owner - as happened.

Karen says they've ordered a new GPS tracker for him and they've put an AirTag on his collar for the time being.

'Thank you to everybody. We wouldn't have got him without the sightings, without people listening and not following him. Thank you.'

Karen has been speaking with Manx Radio about the moment they found him:
