Unhappy Goodbye Bruno

Well everyone I was walking my 2 dogs wed.around 9 oclock pm. Me and my dogs were close to a patch of woods we always walk through. My male bruno was behind me and my girl lady was next to me but closer to the woods and boom this buck comes rushing out and totally attacks her without warning and all I was her get tossed in the air and my male come rushing in to help us. me and lady took off to the house (only 150 yards away) to get a weapon and when I got back bruno and the deer where gone I have'nt seen my boy since. I've never experienced a deer that aggressive and I fear the worst. It's been 3 days and no sign of him. I have walked through as much of the woods as possible and looked every where high and low for miles and have'nt found him.My female got it preety good and thats was within 5 - 10 seconds so who knows what happened. Bruno is 2 months short of 2 years old today and I miss him we did everything together and it hurts that he is gone.R.I.P Bruno you will be missed I love you man.

I really hope you find him again. I've heard of people who have a bloodhound that will search for lost dogs-you can see if there is anyone in your area who does that. It sounds like he was a hero saving you and Lady.

How horrible!!!! Did you call all of the nearby vets, post signs, etc.? You should also try to organize a search party because he may be hurt and lost in the woods.

This is very sad. The police departments sometimes will have trained blood hounds to do search for various things. Does Bruno have identification like a chip on him? I hope the dog returns. Don't give up yet.

I'm so sorry to hear about Bruno. I wish there was something we could do.

How terrifying and sad for you. Our dog once tried to claw her way out of my car to get to a deer in Colorado. We were in the mountains and I feared that if she did get away, we'd be hardpressed to find her.

Paige did get lost in the woods once while we were hiking. We went back to the last place we had her with us and just called and called for her. She did come back...but she had to have been miles away.

Don't give up hope yet. Continue your search. If your boy is out there, he is probably looking for you too. He's smart and intuitive. He will do what he must to survive while he looks for you.

I pray you find him or he finds you.

Don't give up. Deer might be aggressive due to the rut, I am seeing them a lot more often now. Your boy might just be lost, or may have been picked up. I hope you find him.

Hoping that he finds his way back home. Not that they are the same I had a cat that disappeared for a month one time..I thought for sure she was gone, but she showed back up(pretty bad shape, but alive). Keep checking vets, police departments, and shelters. Is he microchipped?
