That should be your first phone call, not your back up plan. If Boone is still listed then he probably has not been found.

Shepherds of Every Color is active and a very good one to contact. She also works at a local animal shelter.

Your right. Although persauding my mother to do any of this is going to take an act of Congress. She is very aware of my loyality toward helping naimals, but doesn't like to get involved and I am not old enough to tell anyone they need to come and see about Buddy.

ahhhh....got it. If you contact the rescues and give them the area to look for him, they will take care of the rest. Just keep sending out emails until you get someone interested.

Yes, I'm going to email the GSR of Alabama about it and the fact it might be Boone. I would love to return him to his home if at all possible.

This is very interesting. Scar on nose AND ear infections. Wouldn't that be something if this stray turned out to be Boone?

OP, I hope you keep us updated!

Don't email. Call those 2 phone numbers now!!!

Imagine wondering about your dog for all those years. If it is possibly Boone, better to find out as soon as possible.

Alright, update and I don't think it's a good one.
I notified my mother about Boone and that was need to call the numbers on the GSR's website. But NO, she totally went against that and called the Mobile County Animal Shelter, who in fact is a kill shelter, and didn't even bother to mention that he may be a missing dog since 2006.
So I'm still going to try to persaude her to call the numbers on the website, but it'll have to be soon. This shelter will only keep him 3 weeks and if no one wants him, he's as good as dead.

OP, is there some reason why you can't call the rescue that lists the lost dog?

Why don't you call the numbers you found?
Also, there are vets who may treat a case like this free of charge.
This poor animal needs treatment now, as soon as possible.
