Stay close to where the first dog was found.

We rescued and fostered a dog and it ran on the new owners the day we adopted him away. We found him where we thought. Not a happy ending near a busy intersection.

Bottom line, he was hiding in the woods near the road waiting for us to find him and we were too late.

WALK. Get out of your car and keep calling him/her.

Good luck!!! I'm still heart broken about losing him and still mad at the family that adopted him because I was at their neighborhood searching for 10 days and never ran into them. Driving by the intersection still makes me sad.

I definately am searching where my other dog was found. I visited the people who turned in my husky to animal control and they said they thought a neighbor said something about seeing a rottweiler there too. At that time, no one had seen my ads so they didn't put it together. There is a large creek that runs through there and I think they were keeping close to the water.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and I'm sorry to hear about your adopted dog.

Good luck to you and I pray that you find your dog.

You may want to put up missing dog signs along the creek.

You also may want to camp out, lay a favorite food trail towards your tent, and record your typical call and cycle play it on a boom box so that your rottie comes to you.

Sorry, they're my family, so I'd go overboard trying to get them back with me.

Time is not on your side.

We only had our foster dog, a cowardly Border Collie, for 2 months until we found a home for him. He must have sat at the edge of the woods accross the street in front of their neighborhood on the other side of a very busy intersection, afraid to come because that's the way he was, got hit by a car after 10 days, and died by the side of the road. I know that it was 10 days because I was there every day and he was less than a 1/4 mi a way from me the whole time. That was 4 years ago and it still bothers me.

My heart breaks for you. Losing a pet is so rough, my heart breaks about one of my dogs that died in 2003, I know what you mean.

The good thing is I found my husky who is totally incapable of taking care of himself. He is retarded and partially blind, I never thought he would last nine days away from home, even with the rottweiler's help. I'm pretty sure the rottweiler was seen day before yesterday in the same area, the guy didn't know dog breeds but it was a pretty good description. The other positive...tomorrow is garbage day in that neighborhood so it should bring out a very hungry rotty once again.

Keep up the positive thinking!

I have bombarded the area looking for him, so far no luck, but I have a feeling he is still out there. I drive the roads enough to know he hasn't been hit so that makes me feel better. The animal shelter is on it, they recognize me now, so they said they check all the incoming dogs. I even spoke to the police about what to do if they get any call on a rottweiler in the area.

I will not give up looking for him. It makes me kinda crazy though that my husky had to have been about 50 feet away from where I was calling him and banging his food bowl last week. Then again, you never know about that dog!
