View Full Version : I'm Crying my Eyes out

My dog was stolen or escaped yesterday. he just was groomed and our fence is low enough where someone could have reached in, but not low to where he could have jumped out. He might have, but it's unlikely.

I've searched everywhere and I just can't stop thinking about him out there in the cold. I'm so worried. I'm so frustrated that I can't find him.

While looking for him I saw another dog get hit by a car and now I just can't stop thinking about him. We made a hole in the fence so that he could come in our yard if he decides to come home, but he is a nice and loveable dog and he's a white pomeranian. I honestly think someone grabbed him.

My christmas is ruined :(. I just want him home for christmas that's all I want! :( :( :(

dang, that sucks. Did you put up signs?

Crazy_dog no.3

Well u could :
1) Put up signs as IG-64 said.
2) Contact the police. It may not work, but it's certainly worth a try.
3) Wait for him to come back (it could work)
4) Carry on searching for him (as u were)

Sorry to hear that, Shan. :( Hopefully this will all work out. Have you contacted the pound yet?

your best bet is to call the police, tell them what the dog looks like, and tell them to keep an eye out. cause there's a chance that if he did get out, that someone didn't want the dog freezing his arse off, took him inside, and called the cops. I hope you get him back, I know how much it sucks when a dog escapes. (my yellow lab is like an escape artist...escaping every few months when i least feel like chasing him down)

Right now its 5am - I can't sleep. I have been waiting for him all night and day. We went out searching for him around the apartments. I live in a very busy city. He isn't the type of dog anyone wouldn't take in. I'm afraid someone stole him. I looked at the shelter closest to us and he wasn't there. I called animal control and they said any dog picked up wouldn't be at the shelter until tomorrow (today). I have school today at 7 and I can't go. I have my finals, so my husbands going to go and I might ask my dad if he would while I'm in school. My family and I searched everywhere. I can't believe it. I'm so sad right now!!
I made a million posters tonight so that I can post them everwhere. I'm going to call the police today - maybe they can help but I doubt it. they usually will say to deal with animal patrol. God this is AWFUL. I wish he was under my bed! That's where he sleeps. I miss him something awful. He has been with me through some rough times. I lived out on my own for awhile and my husband (then boyfriend) got him for me from the shelter because I was so alone. He's been with me through thick and thin and I love him so much. I'll post some pictures in his memory. Keep him and his safe return in your prayers!

a couple of years ago i lived in US for a year... the dog we had been keeping for our neighbors (they lived in the US for 1/2 a year) the 6 months before we moved died... Then, just some months later the dog of someone really close to us died... :(
i don't know if any of that made sense, but it sucked... I'm sorry for you, and i hope you find your dog :(

I, don think anyone took your dog.If you really really think they did, contact the police. If you contact the police, and they search for it, the person who stole it might get scared, and bring it back.

Not trying to be rude, but is your dog smart? If so, if he ran away, he will find his way home.

Good luck. :(

When I was living out of town, my dog had run away for a week or so, but came back:)

Good thing she's smart.
Sorry about your loss, I hope you find him.

Man, that is one cute dog. I'm sorry to hear about this. My dog gets out about once every 2 years. I hated it. One time he got out and went to my friends house. Right as he called, we left to go search for him. We searched for a good 20 minutes and could'nt find him. I was devastated. And then when I had my mom stop at my friends house to have him help us search the neighborhood, there he was. This is also the same dog that swallowed a paddle ball's rubber ball, and it got stuck in his stomach, requiring operation that set us back around 5-10 thous. My mom was just gonna have him put down, but somehow, my crying managed to get her to see it my way.
I know how it feels to lose or even to think you've lost a dog. :(
Also, the other week My mom opened the door to let the dog out, and my cat was there at the door. She never has gone out without my moms cat with her. So we're searching for my moms cat for a good 30 minutes, and she was nowhere to be found. As I am returning from searching the neighborhood on bike, I go up the stairs to meet my mom sobbing(i was too), my little brother stands at the door and says,"I found Kitty Kat!" We both turned around and there she was eating. We were calling around the house and she was probably like, "I can see you, you should be able to see me! :rolleyes:

I am soooo sorry girl, and I know how it feels :(
(cute baby too :) )

Sorry to hear about your dog but you'd be suprised of the chances of getting your dog back. If it ran away chances are it will come home. BTW Cute dog and kid.

Wow! that is one cute dog! I hope you can find him soon... BTW my family knows the feeling as well. A few years ago, my sister's rabbit, a clever escape artist, opened her cage and hopped away. We set out a trap for her and she got caught. She escaped a second time and got caught again. The third time she hopped off, we never saw her again.:( hope you find your dog again soon.

Awww. What a cute dog. Wow. Pomeranian(sp?) right?

I'd feel so sad if my dogs ran away or were stolen. I just wouldnt be able to live with it.

See, just about a few weeks ago, my dog Koko had a seizure. She got so stiff and her eyes were wide open, and she couldnt open her mouth. Through desperation my mom and I started cold water on her, and she started to loosen up a bit, and afterwards she was fine. We were very scared, and I'm betting this must be close to what you're feeling. It would be a very sad occasion to lose a dog.

Anyways, I REALLY HOPE YOU GET YOUR DOG BACK!!!!!!
Best of luck.

I have a friend whose dog ran away during a thunderstorm one night. He had recently moved, so I guess his dog figured to go back to the old home. Unfortunately, he's never seen her again.

I'm so sorry that this had to happen to you.

A year after I got my dog, he was in the yard and he jumped clear over out fence and ran off. YOu'd be amazed at how high all dogs can jump when they put their minds to it. He came back about an hour later, and im sure yours will too. ;)

your dog looks very nice indeed. I have a cat but she is an indoor cat. cities are so big and people so well not nice these days, I hope it works out for you. Last year I opened my condo door and a stray cat was sitting there, I took her in, and went door to door and psoted flyers, and I thought the owners were never going to come for this cat, but they finally did and were so glad to have Willie back. My cat hated the intrusion though. It's bad to lose a pet, especially this time of year. I do hope there is a Sant Claus STTC. and you get your little doggie back.

we have found several dogs in my time, One dog we went walking around with it in hope that they would see us and sure enough they were out on a pickup lookin around. They were so happy when they saw him. Another time somebody threw their dog out of ther truck window and drove off so we took it in and nursed it back to health but i think it ran away again, another time, recently, my friend down the street cought a dog and saw a sign for him and called up. She was just about to cry when she saw Max. I hope these are cheering you up and I hope you find Toby again :(

Good news!!!!!!

My dog came home!!!!!

I couldn't believe it. I was a mess all weekend. I went to the shelters and my husband went and searched other shelters. I was hysterical (well not hysterical, but very sad). As I was coming home from checking the shelter after filling out some "lost" dog paperwork and checking the "DEAD" book. (god, that's a horrible thing). My husband called and said that he was home - in the backyard!

He wasn't dirty or hurt or anything. I don't know where he was. Me, my parents, and my husband searched that complex top to bottom. I have no idea where he was. Thanks guys!

I'm sorry to hear about everyone else's dogs as well.
it sucks when your dog dies, but it is hard when they run away because you don't know where they are. They could be running in the street (and I've seen people AIM for dogs) or he could have been captured by abusive people or he could have been re-adopted to a loving family. You never know. And thats what hurts.

Yay..I'm so happy!

*Hugs Shannon for a long time*

Thats the best news I heard all day. I am so happy for you, I had a dog for many years, her name was Sammy, part lab, part cocker spaniel. We basically grew up together, that dog was always with me, and was great with the neighbor kids as well. Very popular. After I joined the Navy in '95, about a year after that, I called home, and would ask to speak to "Sammy". One day, my tearful mother broke the news to me, that Sammy had been put to sleep two weeks earlier, first I was mad, but then I understood, that she was suffering, I am only sorry I did not get the chance to say goodbye, but she had a good life, and was loved by many, many people, and then there was the neighbors. Sammy was very smart for a dog, and I vowed that when I get a house, I will get another Lab, and preferably a girl Lab, because they have the best temperment. :) That day is just around the corner for me now. :)

My Dog got hurt, and we had to take him to the vet yesterday...
His brother got mad at him and bit him really bad in the stomach and neck :( He had to get staples in his side and has to wear a big cone on his head so he cant scratch his head wond and lick the stitches on his stomach. We have to give him antibiotics(sp?) And I have to hand feed him and folow him around everywhere. He is soooooo cute and pathetic. He will get the staples removed 4 days after xmas. I hope he doesnt get an infection on his neck because the vet couldnt close that up...
