I know our dog had a very uneasy 4th of July night and laid on my feet all evening.

That's a beautiful dog. I hope somebody does the right thing.

Having a dog run away is gut wrenching. I've had it happen once, and luckily we found him after about 3 days. I hope I never, ever have to go through that again. It just makes you sick.

My daughter just found a dog. Her kids found it sleeping under her porch. Now its been there four days and they are freaking out whether someone will come and claim "Michelob".
We placed an ad in the local paper. Aimee told the grandkids if no one calls after a week they could keep him.

I wonder if they have kids? ANyone know? Its tough for adults but the kids really get torn up.

You need to take the dog to a vet. He may be "chipped" and they can find the owner immediately. Better then saying he's yours, telling the kids and then finding out he's chipped.

We checked for one already and took him to the vet Friday AM for a checkup and to be sure there was no chip. None. No call so far either.

Thing is he was obviously fed and groomed but no collar or tags. My daughter lives a long country block from a vet clinic - we suspect someone may have dumped the poor dog in the neighborhood for that reason. And she's a sweetheart - vet thinks part Setter part Jack Russell. Kinda feisty and midsize.

People who do that really tee me off...

Yep. My dog went missing for a day. One of the most difficult day of my life. Luckily we found her. Totally feel for Ryan.

We just got a dog last week from a rescue place out in the country. They make a "rescue run" once a week to local kill shelters.

Our girl had been dropped off at the kill shelter but it was closed..... so they tossed her in the dumpster.

Here's our new family member. http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/23284243?rvp=1

They have video. She's the brown/white puppy.

Awesome. What a beautiful dog. Congrats.

I've adopted a few "dumped" dogs. They really are the best.

I found a half Weimeranner, half pit bull On the freeway berm with a broken leg. I don't know if he was a runaway, or was dumped. He doesn't seem like he was abused. Too fearless and friendly for that.

I really hope Ryan finds his pup. That's a real soft spot for me.

Brittany Spaniel and Chocolate lab is a great mix.

Man this is terrible. I've heard the 4th is the day the most dogs runaway due to being spooked by fireworks. I feel really bad for Hanny.

It's the day one of my childhood dogs died. Fireworks, sirens, any loud noise freaked him out. He tried to jump out of his kennel and strangled himself. He did that a lot, but as he got older, he couldn't free himself. Loved that rat terrier like a best friend, good old Dexter.

I really hope Ryan finds his buddy back. That has to be heart braking.

We had a dog where we couldn't leave the house on the 4th. Never any thunder or lightning in Portland so she could get used to loud noises.

When we moved to Florida the poor thing was a complete mess.

Fortunately our newest puppy is well trained having been raised during the height of the daily SoFla t-storms last summer.

We used to live right beside Kings Island and had a great view of a fireworks show every night at 10pm. Our cats freaked out every night. They never got used to the bangs even after 4 years.

Oddly enough our cat doesn't mind the GABP fireworks anymore (we live less than a half mile away). Last year he didn't even flinch during Riverfest. Which makes it all the more inexplicable that he flips out every time a blimp appears in the sky. :laugh:

Great news about Ryan's dog. In 2003 we became the owner of an AKC Siberian Husky we bought as a Pup. His name was Raider. He died unexpectedly in March of this year due to liver toxicity of unknown cause even after hospitalization and our best efforts to care for him. I bring this up for two reasons 1. In 2008 I was out back with Raider when a young pure bred female Husky came up to our back fence out of the blue. She was friendly and allowed me to pick her up and place her in my yard. She had stitches from recently being fixed. No collar. I hung signs up all over knowing someone must be looking for her. I soon realized she was a chewer and somewhat scared of men. We took her to the vet and had the stitches removed etc. No one ever called we assume she was turned away for the chewing issues. She has become a true blessing and helped us make it through Raiders death. 2. Her and Raider escaped together at least twice. Once for 24 hours when a couple a few miles away called us after temporarily finding our phone number on their tags but couldn't coral them long. We did however nearby a few minutes later. The second time they both ran about a mile away and literally jumped into a TV news van that was doing a live report and the crew called us!

That is great news. A few weeks ago, I was on my porch getting ready to start my regular poker game with friends. We heard a jingling of chains or something coming steadily up the alley beside the house, and then swing around the front of the house by our hedges. All of a sudden, a small dog of some sort came trotting up my front walk and up onto the porch like he lived with us.

I scooped him up, he had three collars on and multiple tags, unfortunately, the dogfinder tag with a web address didn't work and his address phone number was hard to read. Still, I hopped in the car with a friend (it was 10:00 at night) and headed over to where it looked like it was. My part of Baltimore is good and bad in spots, and this one was kinda iffy, about 9 blocks away from my house. We got over there and saw a man standing on a corner, pulled over to make sure we were in the right area, and asked the man for help.

First thing he asked us was if we had seen a dog.

A second later, the pup was back in his hands. Turns out the dog got spooked when some firecrackers were let off and bolted. He had made it those 8 or 9 blocks before wandering up on my porch. Happy to get him home.
