11 month old female escaped gone 3 weeks.

She was spotted a couple of days ago running with a pack of deer. Any hope of getting her back and everything going back to normal?

She has been found and is back home again! She was SO HAPPY to be found and SO HAPPY to be home again!! However, she is now missing an ear, but at least she is alive and home.

going walkabout

Chances are that if you can catch her and bring her home, she may eventually be fine. While she's running with the deer, she runs the risk of starvation, injury, death.
If she has not been spayed, she will continue to want to wander. If, when she is rescued you can adopt a neutered male companion canine she should be more willing to settle.
Also, her guardian instinct is very strong, as she has committed herself to this herd of deer. If you do manage to corral her, she needs her own herd (4or5 goats will do) to satisfy her instinct to guard something. She will need a 5ft fence to discourage dreams of another walkabout.
Hope you manage her rescue, as her life span with the deer will be short and harsh.

Escaped
by: Donna

Dogs start to revert to fear and being very wary when out on the loose for so long. You may have to set a trap for her once she is spotted in the same area for a few days.

First, you need to start posting flyers, with all her information and your contact information, in mailboxes, at vet's offices, notify bylaw, contact rescues and shelters. Pyrs can roam for miles. I don't know where you live but if in Canada, there are many Lost and Found facebook pages. Ontario:

Ottawa: https://www.facebook.com/lostpetnetwork/?fref=ts

You need to get out an look for her.

I hope she has been spayed or you will have unwanted puppies should she ever be returned.

Dogs have been known to be picked up for fighting dogs or stolen for use in puppy mills. I hope this isn't the case for her. Three weeks is a long time.

If she was micro-chipped, which she should have been, and she is picked up, good people will take her to a vet or shelter to have her scanned.

I wish you well. Keep looking and talking to people with flyers. Post them everywhere.
