    My 5 year old GSD and one of the dogs we have rescued ran off lastnight around 5pm. We had terrible, terrible rain all night and the dogs never showed up. This morning just the other dog (the rescue) showed up by herself. I dont know what time but at 9:30am when I went outside she was there. No sign of my GSD. This one rescue dog ALWAYS entices the others to run off. No one runs off unless its her and one of the others. But this time it was my most beloved dog who I have had since a puppy and we are just so connected. If anyone has a GSD you will know just what I mean. Theres no one in the world she would rather be with than me, and I dont know what she would do without me, and now vice versa. I am so upset but I am trying to stay calm because theres truly nothing I can do. They ran into the woods so Im worried she got lost because of the scent washing away with the rain, or coyotes may have packed up on her, or just something terrible happened to her. Im at a loss, and I dont know what to do, and theres really nothing I can do but wait and pray she comes home. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Was your dog wearing identification? Have you called the local shelters and dog wardens? Also check at all the local vets; often strays are brought there.
    In general I would say that your dog is probably galavanting around somewhere having a fine time, but since you say she's a velcro dog usually I bet she has sought out some sympathetic person somewhere. Call friends, let neighbors know, put up signs, etc. Good luck!
    Try not too worry too much (I know, I know, easier said than done...); GSDs are smart, strong, and resourceful dogs. She'll find her way back to you.
