After being 2 days with us she escaped from our backyard jumping over the fence ( 4.8-5.1'tall). Her name is Marta , she is all black, has write legs, chest and stomach. About 1 y.o. We live in East Plano and she was last seen at Spring Creek and Jupiter..we posted about her everywhere. We need help to find her…Helen

Welcome to our community! Hope you find Marta.

thank you so much, I hope we found her! for now I'm checking all shelters around and keep putting fliers everywhere….I got a feeling somebody is keeping her, she is too cute...

Good luck with your search, hope she finds her way back to you.

I feel so bad for you and this situation. Hopefully if you fed her, she will remember you when she's hungry. Did she seem to bond to one of your dogs????? Take your dogs for a long walk, or better yet, with you in the car as you drive around. Get out intermittantly and walk your dogs in concentric circles. If she is out there, she may come over to you, don't call her, let her walk over to you and somehow without quick movements get her to the car???? I had Uzie for two or three days here, and he got loose-with a collar and leash attached!!! It was real bad! He ran around the wooded area for hours, once or twice coming back to the house, but would run if I went towards him. I put Candi on a leash and he came over, and I jumped on the leash like a rugby player!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can only hope and pray for her and you and for a return to your home!

Thank you Buddys-Pal! I walk with my other dogs everyday and we still looking for Marta everywhere, I check all shelters around and put flyers but I got a feeling someone has her.

You need to contact all veterinary and shelters and rescues. That way if she turns up, someone will know. Also, churches and day care places. Children may spot her faster than adults so having them look helps… say if a neighbor found and decided to keep her.

We called all vets around us, shelters as well, churches and day care is great idea! Thank you!!!

I was just reading a magazine my vet's office distributes and there was an article from a DVM who suggested all the above alone with "never give up", and surfing the web for lost pet websites, local people (trainers maybe? or rescues/shelters?) that will post a picture of her on their websites, posting pics-grocery stores, and walking the neighbor hood as many dogs are found close to home, Local media, flyers everywhere and post 'found is critical'! Gosh, don't give up, and knock on those doors if you feel someone has her! Was she chipped and had your updated info?

When we adopted Marta from rescue I was really surprised she was not chipped, we had her for couple days, I was about to take her vet for check up, I don't give up, someone posted photo on 'sell swap give' of Frisco T X site , the dog looks like Marta, going to check today!

Yeah! Hurry and if it her, Oh boy! Tell us how it turns out Helen!

Guess who is back home? My trouble maker basenji Marta after was missing for 22 day!!! There are wonderful people who found her and put her photo on " sell swap give of McKinney' site and I got a lot of text messages! I don't know where she was last 20 day since she was found 2 days ago, very scared and thin, she was in the wonderful home for last 2 days, thank you Kimberly, Laurie, Jenna, Elena Black, and all of you for support!

The add was about her, the lady named Regina found Marta 2 days ago and posted a photo on some Texas based site..Some people I never met, call me and text me photo telling me its my dog, because I posted every day on Craigslist , plus I posted on every possible lost dogs in TX webs, someone saw my adds and text me, then another person called me telling this lady found my dog, I live in Plano , she was found far away in McKinney, 25 min to drive, 12,5 miles, but I believe she run this distance for 2 days, I got a feeling she was in someone house, I had a collar , but she was found without collar, and we had a crazy rain 2 day ago, she is scary of rain and storm, so she did run away, she looks skinny and tired , the family said, she didnt make any sound for 2 days, when she saw me she started yowling ….I could not stop crying, those people are so wonderful, all neighbors come out and were so happy for us!!!!very very nice people I have around!!!!!
