Unhappy Please Help Find Our Basset

Please help us to find our Basset Hound. We miss her dearly. She is the sweetest dog I have ever owned and I would do anything to get her back. For whatever reason our gate latch did not latch completely and she got out Friday afternoon (May 7th) and we haven't seen her since. We have contacted all of the local vets, animal control, SPCA, radio stations and posted about 75 posters all over the city. We have only had one call from a teenager saying her saw her Friday night and was playing with her. She followed him home to his apartment where he went in a left her to her own devices. That is the last place we know she was. Her details are as follows:

7 month old intact female Basset Hound
Tan and white in color
Last seen wearing a purple collar and bandana
Answers to the name Sally
Lost in Spruce Grove, Alberta - Mobile City Estates Area
Last Seen outside Springwood Apartments
Lost Friday May 7th, 2004 at approximately 4:30 PM

If you have any information please contact me a jubilex@hotmail.com

Thank you so much!

Oh dear, my guess is she came into her first heat... thats why she ran.

I hope she doesn't get pregnant. The worries you will now have.

I suggest spending as much time in the area calling out her name as you can.

Call all vets offices, shelters and pet stores give them posters with the pic on them.

It's hard to know when to decide to spay but usually before 6mons is a good idea cause some dogs come into heat rather young.

Please keep us posted

Actually our vet said she would not do it before six months and recommended the eight to nine month range. This is not my first Basset Hound and they seem somewhat the same in this trait. When they do manage to escape (and they seem to find a way if one is at all available) they follow their noses and lose track of where they came from.

I hope thats not so.

I wonder why your vet wanted to wait? Do you think she's in heat? Had she been acting aggitated lately?

Aren't bassets the ones that follow their noses and aren't the best listeners?

Putting out a shirt or something that smells like you is supposed to work for cats, so it might be worth the try if you wanted to do it for your dog. Good luck!

I've heard that about hounds in general... they seem to have a tendency to roam. I know of people that have that problem with a beagle cross, an Afghan and I remember hearing that about greyhounds too... When they get a sent (or sight in the case of sight hounds) of something they are gone before you can react. You can never let them off leach.

I hope you find her. I can just imagine how heart breaking it must be. Good luck
