Show Dog

Brodie is a show dog and was with his handler at the time he got loose. The handler lives about three hours away from me so, when Brodie escaped, he didn’t know the area where he was. He was almost hit on the freeway near the handler’s houses. A kind woman driver took a risk…

Chewie’s Colorado Adventure

I was out of town at a wedding when the call came that my German Spitz, Chewie, had gotten away and hadn’t been found yet. When I heard he was missing, all the possibilities of what happened were going through my head. He was staying at my mom’s in Colorado Springs where the yard is…

Little Legs Can Go Far

We live in Georgia, so to stay safe and shaded outside, my Dachshund Buddy is sometimes tied to a dog run cable. A few months ago, I was doing some yard work and I didn’t put his leash on him. It was the second time he’d gotten away in two weeks. I turned around to…

Chasing Squirrels In The Park

I named my dog, Bosco, after the chocolate syrup because he’s dark brown. He’s a runner. It has happened pretty often but usually we catch him before he gets too far. We live near a park so he probably saw a squirrel or a rabbit and went off to chase it. I looked for him…

Lucky Blue-Eyes

During the past five years we have fostered many dogs rescued from animal shelters. Though it’s difficult to give them up when we’ve nursed them after neglect or abuse, our reward is finding them new, permanent homes where they will be loved and respected. One dog we rescued, we named ‘Lucky’, since he was just…

Police Dog

I was cutting the grass and my dog, Brutus, must have got out. I waited and looked but I had errands to run and he usually comes back. Later, I was back in the yard with my mower when I saw a police officer. Brutus had been gone two or three hours and PetLink had…

Found Her!

My Lulu found a weak spot in the fence and managed to escape. We looked all over the neighborhood for her and couldn’t find her…I was heartbroken. Then I remembered she had a microchip! So I hurried and ran into the house to update her info on the website, because we had moved out of…

A LONG 9 Months And 12 Days

Windy ran out of the house on December 18, 2010. We searched for her for hours, days, months, but were unable to locate her. On September 30, 2011, I received a call from PetLink indicating our Furbaby had been scanned in at the Garland Animal Services, and I ran out of my office and hit…

The Reason Bear Got Microchipped

One night I was walking Bear, like we always do, and a big pit bull came out of no where and attacked my baby Bear. He might be a Bernese Mountain Dog but he is only 4 months old so he isn’t that big yet. Bear fought his way out of his collar and ran…
