Sorry that your boy is lost, doggiedad had a great suggestion for you. Dogs can chase deer for miles so don't give up hope on your handsome boy, taking Lady back out to the area may give Bruno the scent to help him find his way back home. Hope that you get your boy back soon.

I am sorry for what happened, but you have declared Bruno dead after two days without a body???
I am sorry, but this is not OK. This dog defended you and his canine sister with his life and he deserves that you put in more than a two days of searching. It is now your turn to be there for him. He could have esaily chased that deer for tens of miles, someone could have picked him up and driven him even further. He could be sitting in a shelter now, waiting for you to show up and save him from a horrible death in a gas chamber. You have to personally seach the shelters in your county and the neighboring counties, not all dogs are posted on the web page. Many members have offered help, why don't you take them up on it? Have you contacted area rescues? Have you contacted area veterinarians?
You owe it to him. Feeling sorry is not going to bring him back, your dog did more than feel sorry and mourn when you were in danger.
Rescue volunteers spend days, weeks and months searching for a lost dog that is not even their own.

There is EVERY chance that Bruno is lost somewhere a few miles from home...DO NOT GIVE UP!!!! Call and visit every shelter, put an ad on Craigs List for lost dog, local papers if you have them....make a flyer and take/mail it to vets and pet stores in your town and neighboring ones....

There is no reason to think the dog is dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lots of great advice given here. I hope Bruno is located safe and sound. That was a heroic effort on his part. Best of luck!

Hubby said to make sure you go to any / all local hunting shops in your area.


He suggested that posting flyers there might help as well. A hunter or someone who is in the area may come upon Bruno and/ or the deer.

Even someone at a gun shop might post the flyers...I would do ANYTHING I could think of!

Just a thought.

Praying you find him soon...beautiful dog!

I appreciate everyones concern.
REBEL I didnt post this for suggestions just support not that some suggestions wouldnt/ havent helped I took 2 days off work and searched high and low. If you saw the gash he put in my girls neck that took less than 1 second you may understand why I think he could be dead. I didnt see the fight and the buck was about 300 pounds. I know my dogs know there way home and I have contacted every place possible except for the news posted ads ect . Theres plenty of reason to think he could be dead.
If i didnt have a family to feed I would spend all my time looking but, I dont have that luxury. Do I hope he is alive somewhere and he makes it home absolutley. But dont try and say im feeling sorry for myself or my dog because I dont this is life. I wont give up hope Im just being realistic based on the total situation. This is a nightmare come true and I cant do anything but hope. I havent got much sleep lately.

This article caught my eye tonight and I thought of you. I think it does show that you should NOT give up hope:

Nomadic dog coming home to Colorado Springs | colorado, home, springs - Colorado Springs Gazette, CO

I hope you will keep us updated. You never know who may hold the key to finding your boy. You know we would all do whatever we could to help you.
