I could really use some help, encouragement, and advise here. My 7 month old Labrador was either lost or stolen today around noon. The AEP meter reader came into my backyard and saw the pup and tried to hit him with an umbrella and the pup took off running and has not been seen since. I know that my pup was scared, but I also know that he's a well enough behaved dog that he would return under almost any condition to the sound of my or my wife's call. I've searched the areas near and kind of far, went to the Franklin County dog pound, posted flyers, and my sister's have gone door to door. We live in a somewhat rural setting, so our neighbors are somewhat limited. I'm open to any suggestions and also, based on other's experience, what are the odds that we will even see him again?
