Bearded collie owners travelled from miles around to join in the search party. <br />

Lost and hound ...<br />
<br />
This is the heartwarming moment a missing dog was found after over 100 people and fellow canines took part in a major search for him.<br />
<br />
Dog breeder Madeleine Fear was left distraught when six year old bearded collie Arran, who has participated at Crufts, bolted from a dog walker in Verwood Forest, Dorset, on Sunday morning.<br />
<br />
After she put out an appeal for help was put on social media to track down the pooch, numerous dog owners and their pets answered the call of duty. About 40 bearded collies and their owners travelled from as far as Guildford in Surrey, a 160 mile round trip, to help.<br />
<br />
Within hours of yesterday's (Jan 21) search starting, Aaran was discovered in the back garden of a home in the town. The homeowner had seen one of the 200 posters which were handed out around the local area and called Ms Fear to alert her he had spotted him.
