One of your worst fears has come true - your dog is gone!!!! Now what??

It is NOT hopeless! Here is a list of what you CAN do:

  • First, check your house and yard - calmly and thoroughly
  • Put some items outside your house that have your dogs' scent on them
  • Create posters of your missing dog & put them up at least 2-3 miles out
  • The posters need to have a full body photo and a phone number
  • Walk around your neighborhood and talk to people
  • If you believe your dog was stolen, file a police report
  • Put an ad in your local paper - often times lost pet ads are free
  • Go to local shelters, humane societies, and animal control
  • Call local veterinarians
  • Check with your highway department - unfortunatelyLabradoodle on
  • Call local rescue organizations
  • Be sure to use common sense, and beware of scams

    There are free services on the internet that are worth checking out. is one - register with them, and then you can create and print free posters of your dog. Then put your information in their database. They also have a free mapping program, by zip code, that lists the vets and shelters in your area.

    The Missing Pet Network is another useful site. You can
    submit a free ad for your lost or stolen pet with them.

    What to do before your pet is lost!
  • It's helpful to have a full body photo of your dog
  • Make sure your dogs have up to date rabies vaccines & copy that number down
  • Keep a copy of any registrations and tags for your dog
  • Microchips and/or tatoos might be an option for your dog

    to amusing

    Some are quite active   

    The assortment is amazing - and occassionally, really, really annoying! Use sparingly!

    To "get" one of these smilies, put your cursor over the photo then right click with your mouse. Scroll down to "Save Picture As...", left click that and give it a name. There are lots of sites with free smilies on the internet - have fun searching!

    Abyssinian : Definitely NOT your average lap cat!

    These precious animals are some of the most inquisitive of the cat breeds'. However, you need to be prepared to amuse these beasts, or they are apt to be depressed!

    Abyssinians are called Abys for short. They have "ticked" hair; each strand has 4 to 6 bands of color that alternate light and dark. By the way - a Somali cat is a long haired Abyssinian.
