Default Ohio(Zanesville-White Cottage area)Blk German Shep

My dog is my best friend and I miss her. Please if you have any information or have seen her, contact me. It would be greatly appreciated. She's about 2.5 years old, black with a white patch on her chest. Silverish colors throughout especially around her shoulder blades...also has silverish circles around her eyes. Ears stand straight up. Large Reward with any leading information. I really want my best friend back. I've tried findtoto.com, ads in the newspapers, fliers, knocked on doors...etc. No one has seen her since the morning of 2/27. I'm really hoping my neighbor didn't harm her and I still have hope in finding her. Hopefully she finds her way home safely soon! Thanks for any help!

Let me say that the only time she was on a chain is when I was at work. She had seperation anxiety when I'd be gone my long hours at work and would tear up the house! She'd jump through windows, chewed through her metal crate, this was my ONLY option when I was gone.

I hate when folks suspect that I just left her outside because of some of the pics I had taken of her.


Every time I was home, she was inside with me. Please do not think that I left her chained out! She enjoyed the time outside when I was at work so I didn't feel guilty leaving her out there during this time.

This is my best friend, My child, the one I came home to at night. She is very important to me and I hope to find her soon.

The outside pics where just the clearer, better looking pictures to use for the flier...but as you can tell by the pictures below, this dog was an inside dog and my best friend!

Would your neighbor have done something?

So sad to think of her out there-any sightings at all?

I'm not sure! I'd like to hope not, but I really can't say...they are a odd bunch and it's sad because they have dogs themselves, but some people are crazy and you can't put anything past them. It's just hard for me to confront them about it, how do you go about doing such a thing...and I doubt they would say regardless.

And then when she returned I'd feel way guilty...but I just don't know.

Only sightings were that morning by other neighbors, not just the ones that could have harmed her. One neighbor that she often goes to because she has two dogs she likes to play with, said she tried to get her in the barn but as soon as she saw her she bolted. That's why I have hope that the other neighbors didn't hurt her. I doubt she would have went up to them, but if she was in their yard it's hard to tell.

When she'd get loose while I was at work, she'd run until she tired and then would return home and wait on me. I guess the wolf in her made her want to run but she's always returned.

Sad thing is I just moved here in December...but it's only 5 mins from my old house and I have family in that neighborhood and they've been looking for her, of course I've searched for her time and time again there and have a renter in that house, so they've been watching. And have hung fliers up in the town.

I just really hope she's ok. If someone does have her, I believe that she'll eventually escape and find her way home.

I had just started to train her better on the leash and wanted to get her where I could let her off and go hiking...teaching her that I would love for her to run, but she just needed to stay in eyesight with me.

Little story about her:
I had rescued her back in Oct 07 from petfinder.com. When my X left he took his blk German Shep with him and she was basically mine as well because he just got her before we met and we lived together for 3 years, so I went online to find another blk German Shepherd. Didn't find one at first so searched a few weeks later and found her. Her name was China, which is actually my nickname...so I called about her. She was in Lorain, OH which is about 2.5 hours from where I live and asked if I could adopt her. Laurie from Canine Corner said to come and see her and if she likes you then she's yours...she said she was part wolf as well and I was surprised. She said she didn't know how old exactly she was but she had been dropped off by people who finally caught her at the factory they worked at, she had been there for 8 mths now. I had always wanted a wolfdog but didn't know if I could handle one. Laurie said that's why most people want her and I explained about my X and that I wanted her because of the German Shpeherd...well my friend and I drove up on a Saturday and when we got there Laurie went back and got China.

Right away she came up to me and seemed like she liked me and of course it was instant love for me. We hung out for awhile and Laurie couldn't believe how well she took to me. I've actually stayed in contact with Laurie by sending updates and pics since I've had her. I hated emailing her telling her that she is missing. Teared me up on the last email she's sent me telling me how China didn't take to everybody and when I came up there it was like China knew and had know me all her life.

Of course I adopted her and she went home with me. I tried to call her China at first, but it wasn't working...it was hard calling a dog a name that all my friends called me

We had lot of trials and errors, but there was no way I was giving up on her, she just needed to learn that I was there to love her. I tried to crate her while at work and that didn't work because I soon discovered she had seperation anxiety. She actually bent the metal on the crate and escaped. So I tried letting her roam freely in the house when I was at work, that didn't work either because she jumped through a few windows...so that's when I found a box and put her outside while I was gone. She didn't seem to mind it at all, it was like she wanted to be outside being a watchdog while I was gone, plus all the fresh air that she was getting She was always inside with me when I was home and over the past 6 months I had been able to leave her inside when I'd go away for only a few hours.

She is such a smart dog and I only hope that sometime soon I'll pull into my driveway and she'll be laying in the yard just waiting on me to get home. I've always loved animals and have a cat and another dog at home. But I will say I've never been so attached to one like I have her. I think it's because she has been there for me in a rough time in my life and it was like we were both helping each other out. So yeah, sorry so long, but I wanted to share. At times I feel like a bad parent because I rescued her and now she's missing! I told Laurie the lady I adopted her off of that I would visit her when I was in the area, I have yet to be back up that way with her, but when I do find her, she's definitely getting a visit soon after.

Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and help through all of this, it really means a lot!
