Found Dog Eloise

Eloise

Poodle

Thank you for a wonderful service. We were new to MIchigan when our dog got out of our yard without us knowing. This was the perfect way to notify people in the area that she was missing and someone found her and called! Your service was so fast at getting the word out and so professional. I will recommend this to everyone I know!

Chelsea

Shih Tzu

I can't believe it!!! Chelsea would have been missing almost a year ago. When I heard about lostmydoggie I thought I'd give it a try but I didn't really think I would ever find her again. Only a couple days later I received a phone call from a neighbor only a few miles away saying they had Chelsea. They were wonderful people and didn't even accept the reward. So now we share Chelsea since they fell in love with her too. Thank you so much for helping me find my beloved Chelsea.

Found Dog Cinder

Cinder

Mixed Breed

Cinder came home on her own after being missing for 2 days and 2 nights. She was damp and a bit smelly (thankfully, not skunky), but appeared to be no worse for the experience. I wish she could talk. I bet she'd have some stories to tell. We made judicious use of the free flyer that LostMyDoggie.com created when we registered Cinder as "lost". Scoured the surrounding area by car, by bicycle and on foot. We gave printed copies of the flyer to people walking their dogs (they were very sympathetic) and other folks just walking the neighborhoods for exercise. Thanks, LostMyDoggie.com!

Found Dog Penny

Penny

Jack Russell Terrier

I took the dogs for a walk at the Spring Gardens in Marilla on 4/30 with my friend Daniela and her dogs. At one point we saw my smaller dog Penny chasing a rabbit or squirrel in the distance. We immediately set out after her, but after a while, it became clear that she was not coming back. This was the first time in the 5 years I had owned her that she disappeared like that. We walked back to the car then returned to the spot we lost her at in case she had found her way back there. Nothing. We walked again to the first house on Reiter Rd she would have reached had she run straight ahead, and the lady living there immediately got mobilized to help. She called the EA warden and enrolled her husband to search for Penny in the woods on his four-wheeler. Nothing. Cathy was the first of the many animal lovers I met on my search for Penny during the following 5 days. The park ranger at the Spring Gardens was the second. They were both extremely worried about the two bands of coyotes that live in the area and that can be heard howling back and forth on a regular basis. The first night Penny was gone I imagined the worst: that she had become coyote lunch. I know coyotes are usually nocturnal hunters but Frank, the ranger, had shared horror stories of daytime attacks on dogs, including a pitt bull. Penny was a medium-sized Jack Russell mix with the most adorable underbite who did not stand a chance. To my biggest relief, the next day the EA warden called to let us know that people had seen her on the 400 Southbound. They had tried calling and catching her to no avail. She ran away and disappeared in the bushes on the EA side, but at least we knew that she had made it across the highway into EA. My little girl was trying to get home. We started asking people and putting up posters around Porterville Rd and heard from several people that she had been spotted running down that road into the backyard of some houses adjacent to Sinking Ponds. Apparently, a truck driver was following her slowly to make sure she would not get run over. I spent the next two days putting up posters and asking everyone I met around EA if they had seen a terrified white and tan terrier on the run. I asked so many people that I ended up running into the same folks two or three times on different days. Even the officer I flagged down in his police car told me he had heard of missing Penny several times already! I lost my voice in the process of endlessly inquiring about my dog. I got in touch with the Elma Warden as well as the sheriff's department in EA, Elma, Wales, Alden, OP, Lancaster... I took posters to town halls, post offices, and country stores. I posted about Penny widely on facebook and contacted the EA Advertiser to place an ad in the paper's following issue. Finally the Elma warden called me to mention that someone had spotted a white dog in OP, on Willardshire and Milestrip but that he did not think that she could possibly have made it that far. Neither did I, but I still went and put posters in mailboxes in that neighborhood, rang random bells and asked people about Penny. Engaging in what increasingly felt like a futile search was better than staying put and mulling over my anxiety over not knowing of her fate. Apparently, I had not gone far enough on Willardshire however, because it turned out that Penny had been there all along, crouching in someone's backyard. On day 5 in the morning, I got a phonecall from a lady on Willardshire who had finally been able to lay her hands on absconding little Penny. Terrified, Penny had spent the previous day retreating into the woods at the back of the yard every time someone got near. But she did not leave, and even spent the night on the house's back porch. The lady approached carefully on the second day and finally succeeded in getting a hold of poor Penny who was shaking uncontrollably. Fortunately for us, our pooch was still wearing her collar and tags, and the eagerly awaited phone call ensued. Penny was a stray and a rescue when we got her and she had obviously been abused in her previous life. For months after we got her, any object that even remotely looked like a stick would make her squirm in terror. I knew she was particularly fearful of men but apparently, away from her home, she was distrustful of women too... many tried to catch her to no avail during her little adventure. Had she lost her collar in the process, we may never have seen her again. I will never forget the look of disbelief, recognition, and relief in her eyes when we picked her up. She went from looking confused and beaten to acting more like her old spunky self as we carried her away. Her little paws were scratched up and bloody in front. She was dirty, exhausted, and ravenous, but she was finally home. She slept for two days straight and is now back to causing havoc around the house with her two favorite accomplices, Jake and Cookie. As for us, we will not be testing to see if she would ever pull this trick on us again! While I would never relive this experience, I have to say that the most heartening part of it was the way complete strangers would mobilize to help out, deeply empathizing and caring about our plight. At least three people called after seeing the poster, wanting to help. Friends and strangers alike shared their concern on Facebook, asking for daily updates. The dog warden would call every day to ask if there had been any developments in the search. I wish people knew what a great job dog wardens do and did not hesitate to call them whenever they come across a stray or apparently lost dog. I say this because too many people who had spotted Penny told me that they had just assumed she was someone's dog in the neighborhood. As a result, they did not call the town to signal the presence of a dog loose in their backyard. Had they done so, Penny may have come home much sooner. They only reported seeing the dog because they had come across my many posters or because I was accosting them directly. Fortunately, this is a story with a happy ending. If anything can be learnt from it, however, it is the knowledge that any sighting of any dog loose in your neighborhood is worth being reported. Better risk an unnecessary call than unnecessary pain. Better safe than sorry.

Found Dog Galen

Galen

Whippet

We had our dog back within 12 hours of entering his info. into the LostMyDoggie.com database. Someone had found our dog before we even knew he was missing and taken him in. One of the local veterinary clinics called to ask if we were mising a dog, because the rescuer had brought him there and they had received the APB five minutes prior. Are we happy with LostMyDoggie.com? No, we are ecstatic!!!

Found Dog PADDY

PADDY

Bearded Collie

Very impressed with this service. All the phone calls were made as advertised. Uploading her picture was easy and the flyer was nicely made and it color photo-copied well. I paid this company, LostMydoggie and another web-based company...but this LostMyDoggie service made the phone calls, the fax was already at the shelter when I arrived. The other company hasnt performed any services. Stick with this company! LOSTMYDOGGIE.com I was also able to contact them through their phone number and spoke with a person when i had questions while my dog was missing. My experience was very positive, I highly recommend this service without any hesitation. I followed the tips for flyers and scented items on front yard etc, my dog was found within 26 hours.

Found Dog Casey

Casey

English Setter

I write this with tears in my eyes because I was dreading the thought of having to tell my ten year old son that his best friend was gone and that my 74 year old father had lost his hunting companion. Casey went missing on a Monday morning while hunting with my father. By Tuesday mid-day we were feeling desparate because she was lost in an area that had pockets of dense briars that were impossible to penetrate and we were worried about predators like coyotes. I did a search for 'lost dogs websites' and came across lostmydoggie.com. Within three hours of completing the forms my father's phone rang. The first three calls were from people who lived in the area and volunteered to help find her. The fourth call came at 6pm from a woman who had heard barking coming from well beyond her property line. She wasn't able to get close to the source of the barking because of the thick ground cover. After my father it took him about 30 minutes to cut his way into the general location where they believed the dog to be located. He eventually found her is a briar prison - wet and thirsty. On the way back to the car the little dog was pulling at the leash, wanting to go out and hunt again even though it was nighttime. Thank you for providing a terrific service. We wouldn't have found her without the phone call outreach that you executed. I will be telling every dog owner I know to bookmark your website!

I am not even sure how my friend found this site but I am so grateful! Lostmydoggie.com service is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! I am so grateful to you all, words cannot express. I can't remember her name (Diane?) because I was in such a panic, but she was about to leave work and saw my email and called me about their services. I couldn't even speak so I gave the phone to my friend. She explained the services and fee and my friend was shaking her head no, I said how much?!!! Then she told me and I said DO IT!!! Here is the time frame from lostmydoggie.com calling and me finding Miss Sadie! 6:20 PM original call, 7:01 PM the mass group call went out to over 500 of my neighbors and at 7:28, I got "the" phone call that my dog was down the street in a neighbors garage. Sadie was home by 7:45 PM! She had been missing since 1:30 PM. To top it off she had NO collar on and she is not technically my dog. My girlfriend has had her since 6 weeks old and she is almost 12 now and deaf. WE ARE SO HAPPY!!!! Thank you all for everything!!!! Worth every penny, and not expensive! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

Found Dog Angie

Angie

Yorkshire Terrier

This is the 2nd time this service has worked. I do yorkie rescue and sometimes, they will climb the fence!! True! Thanks to LostMyDoggie.com, our neighbor phoned us immediately to say she thought we had the pup we had been looking for. Chances are, we would have never found our pup without this service. We live out in the country and everyone is off the road or hidden by woods. No one lives close enough together to go house-to-house. Thank you very much Lost My Doggie!!

Found Dog Yeller

Yeller

Labrador Retriever

This is a great service, and well worth the expense. There is no other way that I know of that you can as easily contact and alert as many people. The flyer thats made up was especially useful, no need to sit at the computer trying to come up with a properly formatted, etc. This was actually instrumental in getting the dog back. My wife posted them EVERYWHERE, and it reached the one individual that reunited the dog with us. I'd definitely use this service again.
