I noticed my German Shorthaired pointer missing within minutes of her launching herself from the wood pile to over the fence! These dogs are capable of running miles within a very short amount of time. After calling and calling her ( I live on top of a mountain and I'm surrounded by lots and lots of forest) I immediately called all the Vet's offices, the shelters, and posted a notice on Craigslist. Then I went on line to see what else was available to assist owners of lost dogs. I found Lostmydoggie and after reading all the reviews, I decided the more people knew of her being missing, the better my chances of finding her quickly. I subscribed to the 500 people radius. Within two hours I was called. I quickly went to the address and started my calling and search. To no avail. No Ziva. Then the neighbors in this same area said they spotted my dog. Again the search was one.. I spent 5 hours riding the roads and knocking on doors and passing out my flyers. Many of the houses I went to said they had received the message from lostmydoggie! That was the point I was convinced that this is a great service.
All said and done, the neighbors in that neighborhood were mistaken in what they thought was my dog.
The Sunday paper ad is what put Ziva back in my arms! However, I would be most happy to recommend
this service to anyone who has lost their pet.. however, remember time is of essence! Don't wait. Also, if you have a big ranging dog, ie.. hunting dogs, make sure you expand that calling area!
