I am 1200 miles south, and unable to act, but one of my dogs went missing. She just moved to her new home this weekend and yesterday (monday) morning, she ran off. Very bonded dog, and I am sure she is unfortunately, looking for her 'real' family (being me) If you are in the Springfield VA area, please keep your eyes open for this loving dark brindle, black looking Dutch Shepherd, (looks like a smaller version of a German shepherd, with different markings) that is now roaming an area that is totally unfamiliar to her. Her new family is crushed. And so am I. If anyone has suggestions on how to activate the Amber alert for dogs, please share them with me. The usual (posters, vets, animal control, shelters, police, mailmen, fedex) has been activated. Help!
