What to Do When Your Dog Goes Missing

Lost! That’s the scariest word a pet owner can hear. But losing your dog can be a bit less stressful if you keep calm and spring into action the moment you notice he’s missing. This e-book presents a commonsense approach to maximizing your chances for a happy reunion. Topics covered include the use of social media, how to deal with shelters, when to notify the police, how to search for a lost dog, and the importance of microchips.
