We know how easy it is to get lost. We dig under the fence, run, run, run, the next thing you know we're in another state and can't find our way back in time for dinner.
The humans stick little chip things in us, they register us with places, we wear tags (well, I don't... ahem... I run around nude all the time), collars, sometimes they tattoo us... its amazing! But sometimes those things don't work.
Take it from Sadie, who lives in California, got lost, found a nice woman who took her in... to ARIZONA!!! We can get pretty far from home, where no amount of flyers or phone calls can find us.
Well, thankfully someone has put together a "canine Amber alert" for just us dogs (sorry Zeus, except for the cat that made it to France, you guys usually stick close to home).
Here's the scoop from an e-mail I received from Indy:
"You may cross-post this to any animal related lists.
There is a newly-established YAHOO email list called
K9 Amber Alert.
The intent is create a nationwide group and is to be
used for posting alerts for missing dogs throughout
the United States similar to the way Amber Alerts are
used to help find missing or abducted children.
Incidents will be typical of, but not limited to: dogs
escaped or suspected taken from backyards, dog shows,
Photos can be uploaded to the group. To join this
group click on the following link, you will need a
yahoo user id.

Click the link above to go to the list and join if you are a yahoogroups user. If you aren't, you can easily create an account... do it for us huskies who aren't very good with directions.
