Once in a blue moon I get this trepidant feeling about taking my dog to an animal shelter 2 years ago. At the time emergency came up and I had no choice but to give my dog to the pound.

I had him since he was a 8 wk. pup up until about 4 years. It just bothers me that I have no idea if he is still there, or if they put him to sleep, or if he ended up with good people or not. I checked on him a few days after he was there, and the shelter did keep him...but he went hysterical when he seen me. I was devastated

I just wish I could find out someway if he is ok, because I feel I may never be completely at ease until I find out. What should I do

You will most likely never know what happened to your dog. Thousands of dogs end up in pounds/shelters every year. Thanks to some very good people like those on this forum, many of them find new homes, but we can't ignore the fact that many more aren't so lucky.

So, what can you do? You can learn from your mistakes and when you are ready - financially, logistically and emotionally - you can go to a shelter and select your new forever friend and make some dog one of the lucky ones.

Be kind to yourself.

Its best if you just try to imagine he did find a good home........considering he seemed to love you and people.
If that doesn't work I imagine the pound did keep a record and could tell you at least that he did find a good home.
Things happen in life that sometimes are so difficult......Dog stories make me so sad.
I wish you well.............
