Dog missing! Please help...(UPDATE FOUND)!!!!

Posted Sunday, January 17, 2010, at 9:25 AM

PLEASE return him...
Our dog went out this morning for his morning constitutional and someone picked him up.

He is wearing a collar with ID. He looks like a mini siberian husky, we rescued him 7 years ago. His name is Buddy. This is my sons' and husbands' dog.

PLEASE return him to us. We live on Smith street right behind Kroger

Please contact Lesa or Barry at:

909 Smith street

Shelbyville, TN 37160


9:30 am... sunday: He has been found! My neighbor called he came wandering up to visit her pit bull.

He was hiding somewhere while we frantically looked around the blocks.

Does he have malamute ancestory? The coat and the facial markings have me wondering.

I have not a clue.. He was a rescue 7 years ago. He is full grown but small. He's either Spitz and husky or Spitz and malmute.. and he is a sneak off artist.

I'm VERY glad he got home safely.

(Especially since I think he's listened to my barking brats.)

I've seen him when I'd be near Kroger and had no idea I knew his family.

Now that I know his name,I may be able to catch him if I see him out AWOL (Absent WithOut Lesa) or call you.

I've not seen him much so he may be staying indoors more.

I know that my pups aren't escaping from our yard as badly as they once did so they check in with their buddies by howls more than nose-sniffing visits.

Now that I know Buddy's identity,I'll advise them to get in touch with him online rather than attempt real life meetings.

(He is a lovely gentleman,though.)

Did you find out who picked the dog up when it went missing?

-- Posted by AmericanWoman on Mon, Jan 18, 2010, at 7:39 AM

no the dog was hiding from us when we called. He usually stays in the back yard... but he decieded to wander.. maybe a squirrel inticed him.

Don't you worry about him getting hit by a car? Also, Shelbyville does have a leash law so if he's out wandering, the dog catcher could pick him up.

I'm not "bashing", just stating a fact. You can always put him on a tie out to do his business so he won't wander off.

Lovemyschnzr: he slipped loose.

quantumcat, where do you live at??

I have clarified the city ordinance. It is interpreted as, As long as you are on your on property and you are with your pet you are within the law. I got that strait from the Anamal control Department. The answer to your question is Yes. Are you concerned about a accident with your pets? Check your facts and the interpretation of the city codes. Have you ever had your pet slip off? The Owner of Buddy has a large kennel. You do not have all the facts.

There for you are Bashing!

I don't want to get too specific online but I'm just a few miles from you.

I hit your part of the world to get my walking done,shop and hunt down my dogs when they manage to get loose from their enclosure.

I've seen that little,gray dog about a dozen times (most were probably in or near your yard). Once was near that wooded area behind Kroger's (where my pups had gone) and about twice near Smith's grocery.

You could say we've "howdied but we ain't shook".

He is on tail-wagging terms with my kids,though and has slowed them down so I could get them caught.

I'd rather our furry friends could make playdates at a dog park or something to improvising their own meet-ups and entertainment.

Maybe,we could set up the same sort of gathering places we've established for our human kids.

(Anybody know of a good,empty barking lot?)

I see no indication in previous comments that 'ilovemyshcnzr' was bashing.

I don't know this poster well, only know of him/her through others, and would guess that the comments emanate from a strong conviction of protecting animal welfare.

Sometimes when one feels stongly about or has seen much to influence a certain opinion, statements of fact are often construed more harshly than intended.

Point taken. We have taken in numerious strays, Payed to have them fixed and found them homes. We have also been at war with the local animal control folk about the lack of responce when you need them for strays. I am sure her comments were from a heart of compassion. Often times you cant tell the full story in a time of help as Lesa posted her need for help. However I stand corrected and am on board with those who feel as we do that if you have a animal it needs to be properly cared for. Thanks

quantum !! Hello, I do think I know you.. you would come in to the computer pace where i work and had the heart of Christ one day for a co worker that was disabled and in need.

GOOD to "meet" with you again.

Buddy is being monitered even more closely so he does not do any more escape tactics, in fact we are fixing to put up a critter cam to watch and see where houdini escapes.

-- Posted by 4fabfelines on Wed, Jan 20, 2010, at 5:56 AM

I will say we know one another.

Anything else,I think I'll save for when I see you offline.

(I've just run into too many of the wrong people not to want a "secret identity".

*I*'m supposed to be the weird person one meets on the Internet!)

If anyone gives their heart to the Lord,He's good about offering them the use of His in return.

(Now,if I just could get the other guy's head out of my backside...)

Good luck with Buddy.

We had our darlings microchipped and I'm wondering if I could get them equipped with GPS.


We wound up having to line the perimeters of their kennel with barriers to keep them in but it's kept them alive plus,it's a lot cheaper than paying the fines for their running at large.

Let's hope the critter cam helps keep Buddy safe-even if he is under "house arrest."
