The Roaming Dog
The roaming dog at large is one of the toughest scenarios I encounter in my profession. The dog is usually wandering or traveling a large area and may not respond to the calls and efforts of his anxious owner. Many times he or she is frightened and lost in an area other than his known home territory. Dogs that have went missing while traveling with their owners or who are being cared for by some one other than their beloved owner, are the most likely candidates for this type of missing scenario.
Unfortunately many of these pets began operating on instinct fairly early in their missing situation. Adrenaline kicks in and continues to keep firing as they are fleeing; soon after all turns to survival. This situation is difficult because the dog may not respond to its domestic training and familiar companions. Many revert to a more feral instinct- hiding and possibly coming out only at night or staying on the road and traveling great distances. Smaller dogs in this situation can find themselves facing a more desperate situation with food and water as they are small and cannot maintain their storage resource like a larger dog.
I have worked diligently on the process of locating and ultimately the capture of these elusive canines. Through research, study and a lot of trial and error; we have come up with a systematic approach that involves behavior modification, high tech equipment, K9 tracking teams and surveillance for their recovery.
We are the noted experts at these investigations and recoveries. If you feel your dog maybe in this situation, please call as soon as possible and we can discuss your individual case. This situation is an emergency; the longer the dog is out the more difficult it can be to get her to respond to attraction and capture methods.
Please take the time to read the stories below. They are classic examples of realistic roaming dog scenarios. If you believe your dog maybe experiencing this situation, I urge you to call soon. The case review is free... and Time is of the essence
A happy ending for a second chance dog...
She came to Wild Dog Rescue after living most of her life on a two foot chain fastened to a metal dog house. For most of her six years she lived this life through rain, snow, sleet and heat. Kismet and a chance meeting brought her to the attention of Wild Dog Rescue in Saugatuck, Michigan. She was beyond shy and aloof to the point of xenophobia, extreme fright of everything including humans. Gradually the frightened dog allowed the Rescue Director, Lani, a small friendship. For two mo nths she spent her life getting used to life with a human household as she recuperated from heart worm treatments.
In preparation for her spaying she was brought to a local vet where she slipped her collar as kennel staff led her outside the fenced enclosure; Scarlet was gone within seconds. The rescue and Harbor Humane Society joined together for a grueling three weeks of searching and attempts to capture the elusive canine.
Karin suggested tasks and techniques the professional specialists use to recover shy, roaming dogs. After three grueling weeks and many sleepless nights, rescue director, Lani Mossey, requested an on location search to locate and capture Scarlet.
Dodger located the scent trail of the fleeing dog within minutes and strategic decisions were made as to how to proceed. After only three days, Scarlet was attracted in, conditioned to the capture methods and finally recovered as she accepted one of the capture apparatus.
Scarlet’s story is a classic case of professionals and volunteers working together for a successful homecoming. The Michigan volunteers are to be commended for their consistency, compassion and loyalty to this second chance dog.
