    I wonder if they took the other dog out she was walking with when she went missing if she would come to him?

    I think they tried that too but no luck. They've really tried everything.. Food, kids, puppies, family dogs, bedding, clothing, calling out etc. I think someone also suggested her owner pee in a jar and spread that around for scent but I'm not sure if that was tried. For some reason she's just terrified and doesn't want to come out.
    I was up on the Sunshine Coast last week and drove home along the highway where she is missing, we drove over a bridge that goes over a creek and 4WD underpass (about 5:45-6pm) and both dogs, who were asleep on the back seat, jumped up and started madly sniffing out the window. About 6pm they got a call from someone who spotted her on the underpass, under that bridge. I wonder if that's the reason my dogs jumped up..

    She has not turned feral in that short amount of time by a long shot.

    If she just weaned a litter and was not desexed she's may have become pregnant again and is preparing for another litter hence not wanting to be caught. Or she's nabbed a wild pup or two and is raising them. Go to your local gun shops and as around for people with hunting dogs that will find a scent. Most hunters have GPS collars so they can track where the dogs go. If you can corner her or the other dogs bail her up you might be able to grab her. Conversely funnel her into a dog trap.

    Unfortunately Craig was busy and didn't have a suitable dog for tracking but they have found another tracker/trapper and just gained forestry approval for trapping so hopefully some good news soon!

    Thankfully she was desexed after she gave birth so can't be pregnant but has likely adopted some feral pups as they have spotted her with other dogs

    Just wanted to ask this, but is it normal for someone to be taking a bitch that has 6 week old pups at home, of the pups and out for a walk a fair distance away.

    I know where wild horse lookout is where the dog went missing and I think I remember from the facebook posts that they live at Caboolture which is a bit of a drive away.

    Not having a go at them or anything, just wondering if it's something people normally do?

    I've never actually been to the lookout before as i had been told it's not a safe place to be (people breaking into cars etc).
