Fraser Stevenson and new guide dog Remy - plus update on search for Tess

Fraser Stevenson, whose guide dog Tess went missing in Nairn on Wednesday 23 July while exercising off lead, is now embarking on a new partnership with guide dog Remy.

The months since Tess disappeared have been a very troubling time for Fraser. Matching him with a new guide dog was a key part in helping him to lead an independent and full life again.

Fraser and Remy (a female Labrador retriever cross) are in the early stages of their partnership, but things are going well.

“With Remy by my side I have begun to get out and about and again live a more independent life,” said Fraser. “Of course, I’m still really upset about Tess and concerned for her whereabouts and safety.”

Guide Dogs continue to take Tess’s disappearance very seriously. From the day she went missing we have carried out a significant programme of activity to try and find her. Unfortunately, despite our dedicated efforts to find Tess, she has not been found.

“We ask that anyone who sees a dog that they think could be Tess to take a picture and email it to ,”said Terry Thorpe, Glasgow Mobility Team manager.

“We are continuing to investigate possible sightings with staff, volunteers, and local agencies on the ground.

“We remain grateful for all the support we’re receiving in our efforts to try and find Tess.”

Great news Fraser!
Remy looks like a loyal companion, just like Tess was!
