All of the dogs I have found had no ID on them.  Some had collars but no
ID.  The only dog I lost had a collar with tags on when he ran away but
when found, his collar was missing.  I answered the question by checking
"Special Markings" only because it was the closest thing.  My own dog
was identified by me and the ones I have found and reunited with owners
were based on their descriptions of the dog.

--------------------------------------------------------------
People overlook the many folks in their neighborhoods who can be the
most help: UPS drivers, Garbage Men, Mailmen, meter readers, and
especially SCHOOLS. (The first place to post flyers is around schools!)

Offer a free pizza delivery to their lunchroom if your dog is found thru
info reported by them.

Beware! In many cities, a report of a 'found' dog to the local AC will
mean they come and pick up the dog, saying it is 'city property' and
after 3 to 5 days they euthanize it or release to a 'rescuer' who is in
a hurry to rehome it for an adoption fee... so if your dog gets into
'the system' and you don't find your lost dog within the first 3 to 5
days, you lose your Ownership Rights to your dog! That's why it is
IMPERATIVE for you to GO to all the pounds/shelters within 50 miles! Do
NOT rely on shelter workers to tell you if your dog is there. Shelter
workers and rescuers are notoriously poor at breed recognition!    

 

 

My comments::
I have found dogs several times and never found any of their owners. People never looked for them or they were dumped by owners.

--------------------------------------------------------------Hi,
I find that a number of dogs are lost while staying with someone else or while traveling and your survey doesn't take that into account.  Perhaps choices for those circumstances would be helpful.
Thank you,

--------------------------------------------------------------Hello Nicholas,

I found the surveys very helpful & interesting. One suggestion, For each of the questions  maybe an NONE or N/A choice box, some of the questions don't pertain to me on the 2nd survey, would that mean I should not answer them or take my best guess?

Thanks for all you do Please Keep up the Wonderful work you do! It keeps me motivated!

--------------------------------------------------------------

I worked on lost or stolen dogs, MANY that I helped to recover had been
'rescued' and adopted to someone else. I believe that several, if not a
pretty good percentage, of these dogs could have been returned to their
owners if 'rescue people' had TRIED to return any... One of the SERIOUS
problems with the RESCUE COMMUNITY is that NONE of them are interested
in finding the dogs real owner ~ they 'assume' the dog is 'abandoned,
neglected, abused, unwanted, etc etc'  and they are only interested in
getting an 'adoption fee' for it. 
Sorry. But I have seen it far too often. The problem the owners have is
that they ONLY look in their own neighborhoods - when a great many of
the lost dogs have actually been 'found' by some well meaning good
Samaritan and taken AWAY from it's own neighborhood, (where it could
possibly have returned home on it's own)
My question is: How many 'lost' dogs weren't really lost in the first
place? You'll never know.
