Mrs. Scott told Daily Mail Australia that her and her husband & # 39; the biggest roller coaster of emotions & # 39; had experienced since the dog's disappearance.
And after launching a frantic search for Cooper, they decided to go to four mediums that they thought could help with their search.
But the couple remained even more devastated when they were told that their dog was dead after drowning in the mud.
Emily told the Daily Mail Australia: “She said he jumped over a block and that it went wrong and rolled on him, broke his leg and then drowned in the mud.
The disappearance of the 3-year-old My_little_sausage star (right), a page he shares with his brother Ralph (left), left his family behind as & # 39; the biggest roller coaster of emotions & # 39;
& # 39; This was & # 39; at night so we could not go searching until the morning. So I cried hysterically all night. I cried so much on the phone that Ben had to finish the call for me. & # 39;
The medium asked for money in advance and asked for personal information.
Cooper was described as a happy dog with a lot of energy.
Emily said: & # 39; He is full of confidence and unaware of his size. He will gladly inflate or bark a bull of a ton or hear a lot of cows.
& # 39; He has great agility and condition for a small dog, people are always surprised how far away and fast he can run, he could run farther than me every day. He is a charmer and hugs on someone's lap. & # 39;
Emily said that four other people had suggested that Cooper was still alive, with one claiming that he could have been picked up by school children.
Anyone with information about where the dog might be should contact via the My Little Sausage Instagram page.
