If you have a dog or dogs, maybe you can spare a few minutes of your precious time in searching for a dog rescue near you. There are so many dogs like mine that are abandoned, left by their owners or simply lost forever. This is the main reason why I am writing this article today. You see, I have a friend that has a Pit Bull that lost its way in the woods somewhere and was probably left there by his owner. I want to help her find her lost Pit Bull and hopefully bring her back home safely.
Search The Entire Area
I love animals, particularly dogs and don’t understand how anyone could let their dog wanders off. I am an animal lover at heart and it hurt me deeply when my best friend went missing. The first thing I did was to search the entire area but I failed to find her. She was probably somewhere in the woods. It was then that I decided to use the internet to look for her.
It seems like you can never find your beloved dog on your own, and I can understand this feeling. I had been in this exact situation before, trying to do my own dog rescues but I was unsuccessful. The reason I say that it wasn’t my fault is because I am a lazy person and I didn’t put much effort into searching for my dog. So, I’m going to share some of my most effective tips with you.
Do Regular Grooming
When I was looking for a dog on my own, I made the mistake of ignoring the fact that dogs naturally aren’t very keen on walking around the streets and doing random things. I also made the mistake of not taking my dog’s grooming into consideration. You see, dogs are animals that should be groomed regularly if they have a lot of hair to keep themselves clean. Most of them are naturally clean when they get home, but their owner usually neglects to take this into account.
If you don’t know where your dog is living, then you should consider asking around to your neighbors, friends and family. They might not have any dogs of their own, but they would most likely be happy to help you look for one. I was able to find my dog by asking around and talking to people who knew the area. If I hadn’t done this, I would have had to spend hours searching, maybe even day or two, before I found my dog.
If you are too tired to search for your lost dog, you can always enlist the help of a search and rescue dog. Search and rescue dogs are specially trained to locate missing people. They have the ability to track the scent of a missing person from miles away. They have the tools needed to check out the area where your dog is hiding and to catch the dog if it is still there. Most search and rescue dog handlers will offer their services for free.
The best part about using these two options is that you are doing your part to save a dog’s life. Dogs that are abandoned and forgotten are more likely to be put to sleep than those that are adopted. Searching for your lost dog should be a very high priority. Taking care of a dog, even if they are just a puppy, is a lot less taxing than raising a dog and taking care of a pet dog.
