Nigel Barratt was walking his staffordshire bull terrier in Abbey Road, Barking on May 12 when he collapsed.

The 47-year-old was taken to hospital by ambulance and when he woke up and asked about Jack staff said there had been no dog with him when he was found.

His son’s partner Holly, who gave the pooch to Nigel when she moved to Loughton, Essex, said: “We’re all really upset about it and hope he’s OK. Nigel’s out of hospital and has been looking everywhere for him.

“I got him as a rescue dog, and as he’d previously been owned by abusive people he can be a bit nervous when you go close up, but he’s really lovely.”

If you have any information about Jack call Holly on 07960050046.
