our dog took off today....

and it's not like him at all! i let him out this morning to go potty, and run, and an hour later he was gone. it's not like him, we checked the neighborhood, and neighboring streets and nothing. it's like he disappeared. he's terrified of everything (he was abused before we adopted him), and is very attached to us. i don't know what to do..i've posted on craigslist under pets and lost and found, hoping that someone found him..and i plan on calling the humane society tomorrow, since they close at 5, at we were out looking for him all day. any suggestions?

  • Is he chipped? Hopefully someone finds him and turns him in but check CL for posts on found dogs in your area and call ALL pounds everyday. If you get him back chip him.

  • put up pics all over of your beloved putch,,,every tree, every telephone poll. In our area there is a web site to the animal shelter and they put pics up of rescued dogs. Hoping he follows his nose back to his food bowl tonight hon

  • I would keep driving around, take a walk with some treats. You can also put up some posters! Keep calling the animal rescues as well. Good luck and I really hope your find your dog :)

    I found a lost dog in my yard. She was very hungry and very dirty so I assumed she had been out a while. She was chipped and her owners came to pick her up form the dumb friends league where I took her. I swear I saw that same dog a few days ago just down the street, so someone may be holding him to take him in tomorrow like I did. Best of luck!

  • thanks for all the answers ladies....i went to the humane society today and filled out a lost puppy form, and they had me do a walkthrough, and by the time i got done with it, someone had already called about him. so he's back home with us.
