• On day 12 of searching for my dog in a heavily wooded area, distraught and hopeless, ran into a couple of hunters. They said they lost the occasional dog on a hunt but always got them back. What they
told me has helped many dogs and families be reunited.
The dog should take an article of clothing that has been worn at least all day, the longer the better, so the lost dog can pick up the scent.
Bring the article of clothing to the location where the dog was last seen and leave it there. Also, if the dog has a crate & familiar toy, you can bring those too
{unless location undesirable for crate). You might also want to leave a note requesting not to be moved.
Leave a bowl of water there too, as the dog probably hasn't had access to any. Do not bring food as this could attract other animals that the dog might avoid.
Come back the next day, or check intermittently if possible. Hopefully the dog will be waiting there.
was skeptical and doubted my dog would be able to detect an article of clothing if he didn't hear me calling his name as loud as possible all day for 12 days. But returned the next day and sure enough found him sitting there! hope this helps someone out there who's missing a
best friend. Good luck

    • I lost my dog a few months ago after my moms boyfriend let him out in the middle of the night. I looked everywhere for 3 weeks and tried everything, even put out rewards. Never found him. My best friend of 9 years. Hope you're happy halo

    • My dog was missing for two weeks and found his way home after being hit by a truck he was on the front porch with road rash, a broken leg, some fractured rips and a small hole in his heart. He made a full recovery living to be 19 when we had to put him down from cancer.

    • My dog went missing for hours. I thought it ran to the park so I decided to search for him there. But instead I saw him on the road, dead. He was hit by a car hours ago. It's very sad when you believe your dog is alive somewhere but find out you were wrong the whole time. Worst feeling ever.
