    Default Lost Dog :(

    We have currently been dog watching my aunties white male staffy while she is in hospital.

    Today we came home after visiting a friend to find Roxie, but no Jackson. No gate was open, our house and backyard are completely secure. We thought my aunties partner might have come to take him but a quick phone call determined that wasn't the case.

    Started to panic at this point, wondering how the dog got out. We thought he may have eaten something and was sick somewhere and literally looked in every closet, under every bush. I start to look around the area when my mum rings. Her bedroom faces the street and she has a big floor to ceiling window thatlooks over the porch onto the street. It was open (always is) and somehow the dog has pushed it, broken the latches at the bottom and squeezed through. Roxie either didn't see it or didn't push as forcefully.

    I have called the lost dogs home and left a note at the current vet. He is micro chipped and wearing a collar, but has no tags. We asked at all local shops, and every person on the street if they'd seen him. I walked all the way along the creek 4km calling him and asking. It's dark now so I've come in and will resume the search tomorrow I suppose. I spent 4 hours driving around calling and looking.

    Is there anything else I can do? Ring all vets within 20km and let them know? My auntie has NO idea he is missing, we aren't going to tell her because she's really sick and this won't help at all. Her partner is blaming us for the dogs escape. We have babysat numerous dogs, for friends, for the r.s.p.c.a, 6 dogs this year, and no other dog has escaped.

    I don't have a photo of him, but I'm guessing the next step is making posters with his description and a phone number?

    *hugs* I hope you get news asap. The microchip will help. The next step would be flyers.

    Firstly, hugs to you

    I would ring the local pound plus put posters up around the immediate area. I would also keep looking and wouldn't give up because you just don't know know. Other than that.......hope they come home.

    Best of luck, I hope you find him

    Rspca/pound, vets and your local council are the people to call.
    Where abouts are you?

    stay strong and don't give up, there was a dog in my area missing for 69 days, there were a number of sitings but no one could get close, eventually the owner found him wandering on the beach, hopefully you get a happy ending, good luck.

    How horrible for you I really hope he turns up.The microchip will help though I guess they will phone your Aunt,does she have an answer phone as you might be out looking for the dog and miss the call.

    I think everything has been covered but just wanted to send you by best wishes and today we saw a family looking for their escaped rabbit and it turned up so there is hope that your Aunt's dog will to.

    Keep ringing. Don't totally rely on them ringing you. Does he have any distinctive markings or is he all white? May even pay to call into the pounds/council, LDH. Micro chips move around so depending on who's scanning they need to scan the whole body.
    Put pics up ASAP and was he desexed?
    What area in Melb?
    Good Luck.

    Check the way that you or your aunty usually take to get from your place to her place and back. Some dogs (many dogs) try to take themselves home.

    Good luck.

    We thought we'd lost one off the unfenced football oval the other day, but it had merely gone to help itself to the junior sports bbq at the clubrooms. Fortunately it was small fluffy type dog who was fine with kiddies fawning all over it. As long as there was sausage to be had.

    Thanks everyone

    I rang the lost dogs home this morning and they had him! Apparently he was picked up last night. All is well and I was so relieved to have him back. We are making sure all the windows are closed from now on!

    Thanks for the advice and support.
