Lost V's

I thought maybe a thread for lost V's (like we have for rescue/adoptable V's) might be good! I see so many on FB, and Lua's little adventure made me realize how important sharing that info is even if it's not in your geographical area. I know HVF hits show up a lot on google searches for vizslas, so it might help someone out. So many of the FB groups are closed now that it might be tougher to find that information if say, a non-V person found a V in their backyard.

Admins, feel free to delete this thread if there's already another one out there, etc...

Re: Lost V's

I'll start... because this poor little guy and his family is tugging my heartstrings! Laszlo is lost in Wisconsin.

Re: Lost V's

I saw that too, and immediately shared on my wall, even though I know exactly 1 person on my FB list who is from Wisconsin. I also think it would be wise to post lost Vs here, for those of us who aren't in a closed group on FB. Or, we could start an HVF group on Facebook and just post it all there---it would certainly make the sharing of info on lost pets easier. It's also how Indy Lost Pet (who helped find Lua) runs their model.

Re: Lost V's

There is a V Lost & Found FB Page:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vizsl...11513005553156

https://www.vizslaforums.com/index.ph...c,19929.0.html

But I'm not sure if it comes up as much when you're googling unless you know the dog's information that's posted on it. Just thought it couldn't hurt to spread the word here too! There's so much traffic on the site that maybe the right person in the right area will see it and have a better idea where to share and go from there!

Re: Lost V's

Believe it or not there are some of us who refuse to use FB for reasons and so maybe a lost and found section on the forum might be good. I would 2nd that motion for sure. I know Dharma has gotten away on us a few times and I have had to keep tabs on where she has gone and she is significantly faster than I am when running!

Re: Lost V's

Its a great idea.
It would be even better if they keep up with the original post on FB, and update here if the dog is found.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Re: Lost V's

I think it'd probably be a good idea to put in the whole description of the dog, where it went missing, etc. in the text too instead of just the link. I didn't do that for the Laszlo post which probably only reached people already reading the forum (still a lot). The more text on the forum, the more likely it is to show up on a google search though, I think?

Re: Lost V's

Zip has been lost in Frisco, Colorado since Oct. 11th. I believe they are organizing a search for this weekend if anyone is located nearby. She's been sighted many times it sounds like, but they haven't been able to catch her.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...=1&theater

"Zip is a four year old female, of moderate size--she's probably about 45 pounds. Typical brownish reddish Vizsla color. She has a purple collar on. She knows her name, but won't come when called, she will actually look at you when you call her and run away. She likes hot dogs. If you are patient and approach her slowly and sit down some distance away she will not run giving her time to trust you--it has not been nor will it be easy to catch her. Any help, any at all, is great appreciated."

UPDATE: Zip has been found!!

Re: Lost V's

wish I could be out there to help search...

on second thought, I'll just pre-emptively say I wish I could be out there for all of them so as not to clog up this post with non-lost-dog info. Mods, feel free to delete
