Our sweet ,loving, awesome German Shepard Betty is gone and I am feeling so lost right now ..She has been missing since the 4th and there has been no sign of her. We have treked all through the woods in oyr backyard..looked along the side of the road to make sure she wasn't hit and have posted fliers as well as had like 10 other people search for her.. she was out on our screened porch like just any normal day. And we get a call from a friend who went to our house while we were gone saying Betty wasnt there. Apparently she jumped off our porch which is about 12 feet up. She was able to do this due do a hole in the screen, which makes me feel so shitty since I knew about this hole but didn't get around to fixing it because I didnt think our dogs would jump from that high up. So I feel like this is my fault. I guess all the fireworks spooked her so bad she just made the jump. Im worried that she is somewhere unable to get he due to a broken bone from the jump (shes 8) . I feel so lost and it feels like my kid is missing. And I don't know what else to do..besides to keep searching ..I just hope shes comes home soon.

So please if your in the salisbury keep on the lookout for a black german shepard.. I have no idea how we will deal with it if we cant find her

I'd call around different animal controls within 60 mile radius. Someone could of pick her up and brought her to animal shelter miles away. I volunteered for Charlotte animal shelter and we had people bringing random dogs to us all the time. Most of those dogs were picked up along side of the road.

I'm sorry man that's terrible. We lost our dachshund like that (the maintenance man at the apt complex let her out) way back in 1994. It took us all day to find her. She was loose in town, near UNCW. I did as Arsen said and called animal control and someone had found her and called them.

Good luck, I'm sure you'll find your dog.

It also normal for dog to run away for few days when they get scared shitless, they usually come back on their own.

For a bit up hope for you. Our cat went missing when i was like 8 or 9. She was gone for about 15 days. A realtor who happened to be a family friend happened to find her stuck in the chimney of a house that was unoccupied and for sale. Apparently she chased a bird and fell in (there was an eaten bird in the chimney) and was trapped. Hopefully wherever she is she will find her way home to you. Dont lose hope and like everyone else has said blow up animal shelter phones and keep searching.

Sometimes they come back after a while. Dogs do weird poo.

Thanks for the positive stories, it helps. she is spayed so she isnt off finding another dog. And we have a good friend who works at the local animal control/shelter and shes helping get the word to the other shelters

My next step is to get up with some hunting buddies and see if we can locate someone with a bloodhound or tracking dog to maybe catch her scent but all the rain has me thinking it might have washed it away
