Great! No, our GSD was stolen 1 week ago today, and we are buying a pup from this bitch. Our new puppy will have the same father, but this is a different dam, and the same breeders as our stolen GSD. Our stolen GSD, was a wonderful girl, we are in hopes this dam will throw us another wonderful dog.

Was your stolen dog by any chance spayed? Even if not, stolen dogs do turn up again. I hope you're still looking for her.


ETA - I see she was spayed. Sometimes dog stolen for breeding that are already altered will get dumped quickly. Really, a week is not a lot of time. We've heard of dogs turning up 6 weeks later and a board member recently found one after a couple years. It's also important to make personal visits each week to every shelter you can in as large a radius as you can. Even when you post signs and file lost dog reports, the shelters get so crowded and the staff are so used to dogs that are never claimed, they may not realize she's your's.

That SUCKS!!

Was your dog micro chipped? Very often they will show up at a shelter and these folks will check for a chip. I certainly hope this story has a happy ending.

By the way I think you made a good choice with the new mom - I like her. Please keep us posted.

Yes, Maya was Spayed, and I have put that on all of the posters I have out for her. We will never give up on Maya, she is microchiped also. We have taken a stolen report out on her, and all the vets, shelters, etc. have been notified, and yes I am going to the shelter everyday! I will never give up on Maya, we hope she will pop up sometime, like I said she is microchiped, and she has been reported to HomeAgain, as lost. We have done everything we can to find her, we are just left sitting here at home and waiting for that call "We have Maya"!

Please don't think we have quit looking for Maya, if she ever turns up, it will be the best thing, our family loves her very much, my 5 year old son was Maya's best frined, and he misses her very much, hints why we are getting another pup from the same breeder.

Thanks EJQ, I too think she is very good looking! I really expect this pup to be prettier than Maya, now if she just has the brains Maya did....

I'm sorry about Maya. Just curious, who is this female? Looks familiar.

I really hope you aren't giving up on your previous dog. My goodness a whole week and you are looking at getting a replacement pup.

Also do you have permission from the breeder to post a picture of this female here?

Wisc.Tiger, that was very rude.... You don't know me and I don't know you, but NO I've not gave up on finding Maya. We had plans before Maya being gone to get her a another GSD, as a playmate! My family misses Maya so much, and we fall in love with her, to the point, We have to have another one, and if Maya pops up "GREAT", then we will have our 2 GSD's! Maya was part of the family, my 5 year old cries everyday over Maya, so YES we need another GSD. Maya and my son were best friends, he won't even go outside since she's gone, she was his pal... My family has been so upset over Maya, that we needed something to look forward to, so we decided to get another pup. And just so happened that Maya's breeder's had a 1 week old litter...Same dad as Maya but different Dam. Our new pup is only 2 weeks old, we have a long wait, our breeder also knows how much we loved Maya, and wants to help us, the Breeder even put Maya as a "LOST DOG" on her website....How cool was that!

I like that Dam as well. Hopefully Maya will show up again, and you will have your 2 GSDs.

Would Wisc.Tiger like to enlighten the rest of the forum members as to an acceptable waiting period when adding a new pet to the family. Just so everyone is on the same page.

I can see where Wisc Tiger is coming from honestly. Her reply wasn't rude IMO...it was an honest question. A week really ISN'T a lot of time to find a missing dog...it can take a couple of months.

I know if Strauss went missing I certainly would be looking for him for more than a week!

It seems as if no one listens to me on here! I haven't stopped looking for Maya, I went to 3 shelters today, and talked to one more GSD rescue...... I already stated that we wanted 2 GSD's!

This is the most judgemental Forum I've ever been to.....

I know it seems this way that a lot of people are judgemental, but it is online on a forum, and we have to get thick skins if someone says something we don't like. That being said, sometimes what someone comes off being judgemental or rude may not mean what they said that way. It's hard to see the context of one's words on the internet.

For the love of God, please read the OP post again and note that is states she will NEVER give up looking and has done all anyone can possibly do at this point. I don't see where she mentions she only going to look for a week then give up.

Wisc Tiger is certainly entitled to her opinion and I respect that. But one shouldn't imply that the poster is cold hearted either. When I read the post this is what i got from it.

Dog was stolen, owner is heartbroken and is doing everything possible to find the dog. The family is very upset especially the young boy. They have also decided to add a new pup to family (eventually) their love for the breed has ensured that they always want to have a GSD in their home.

And with some luck they will have 2 GSD's when their other pooch is found. Thats how I read it.

I agree that many veterans members here tend to be quite judgemental in some posts that really don't require it.

JAPD, Thank you so much, you said it perfectly! Our home is so quite without the loud rummble of Maya's feet, and it is making us miss her even more. Like I said our new addition is only 2 weeks old, we have 6 more weeks before we get to bring her into our home. We have been greiving over Maya, to the point we can't think about anythink else. But when we decided to get another pup, it gave us something to look forward to..... And I still pray ever night that Maya will be returned to us safely, she was our baby! We will not give up on Maya, and with any luck we will find Maya, and have our 2 GSD's.....
