Not sure if it is okay to post this here, wasn't sure where else I could. It's taken a lot just to get around to saying this, but Twister has been missing since April 29th.frown I wasn't even told (he was being dog-sat by family) until nearly a week after he went missing because they were hoping they would be able to find him first. I've been posting ads, went to the shelter, am keeping tabs with a few FB groups...I searched the woods around their property (they live in the country)for several hours with my other sister's dog in case something had happened to him, but I haven't seen a trace of him. They said they had let him out to go potty, and I guess he went into the woods (they said he has been doing that with their cat), but he never came back when they called for him...and before he would always come back when called. Right now I don't know what to think, I don't want to give up hope of having a 'happy ending'...but that's not looking very likely anymore.cry

hug Have you expanded the online search area and contacted shelters in other areas? I know of someone who picked up a dog and ended up taking it several states away instead of taking the dog to a shelter facility.

Is Twister chipped? Have you set up a "Find Twister" FB page that could be shared?

I have been searching Petfinder and other sites pretty much every day. I actually found two that looked at lot like him, but one was female, and the other one isn't him (and is in another state, but anythings possible). I haven't started his own page, but I have asked on my FB for people (esp those in the area) to keep an eye out for him. Twist isn't chipped (I was planning on it, but hadn't gotten around to it), but he was wearing his collar and tags.

...I also think one of the neighbors might have had something to do with it, or their dogs attacked him, but that is just a possibility, I have no proof of that happening. I hope it's just that he got lost and/or picked up...but out here, if it's a dog in the country by itself people just assume it's a dog that was dumped and would sooner shoot it than try to help it.confused

Definitely call all the shelters even remotely nearby. A lot of dogs in more crowded shelters don't get listed on Petfinder. Could also post on sites like Craigslist in case anyone has seen him.

Hope you find him soon hughughug

Yeah, that's a good idea. I do have a couple ads out on Craigslist for him, hopefully that will turn something up if someone knows something. Thanks ya'll.
