Finding Lost Dogs - Rescuer Behavior
To find a lost dog, be aware of the perceptions of others who may find it. Factor those into your retrieval strategy.
- Xenophobic or skittish dogs should wear an additional "Temperament Tag" that states: "I'm Afraid, Not Abused"
- Unattended dogs in rural areas typically assumed "dumped" rather than "lost." Communicate to a larger area that your dog was lost
- Collars can come off. Microchip your dog to avoid people assuming he is a stray
