It happened a week agao.My 7 month old german shepherd mix ran away.She was in the backyard with my other dog like she is everyday while I am gone.When I came home she wasn't there.I looked around the yard to see how she would escape and it turns out she dug a hole big enough for her to fit through.Well needless to say I spent two days pasing out flyers and searching for her high and low.Then the third day she was up at my school.I tried to catch her but she saw a cat and ran off to where i couldn't find her.I looked where she ran off to right after school and she was gone.Over the weekend I searched for her around the school but never saw her.Then Monday came and I find out a teacher had got her and taken her home.The teacher has a five year old who has named her Princess and three other dogs.I really miss my puppy but I don't know if I should ask for her back because the little girl is getting attatched to her.What should i do?
You don't know if you should ask for the dog back?? You're kidding right?? Its your dog, call the woman and let her know the dog got out and want her back.. Shes obviously a dog lover or else she wouldn't have taken your dog in... I'm sure she will give the dog back to you. Why are you afraid to ask????

Go get your dog! Tough if the kid is getting attached. She will have to learn that when you find an animal, you need to try to find it's rightful home. I think that is a good life lesson to learn. It will be sad for her sure, but I think you will miss your dog more then she will. Kids are resilliant that way.
Does your dog have a id tag on it? I would kind of mention to the lady that I have been driving myself crazy looking for this dog and trying to catch it. Bring a picture of her and her papers with you.
also the kid has had her for only a couple days she will manage. and the fact that you know that the kid is getting attached does that mean that you tried to get it back but the women told you this....if thats the case get your dog back fast and bring proof.
Regardless that's your dog. Don't give her up easily, she's YOUR dog. You have the right to get her and I know it may seem harsh but the little girl will be bored with her soon enough. The dog is yours, and I am sure you have identification to prove it. Get your dog back, and soon!
To me it is a No Brainer... I would be knocking on her door with whatever proof you have & tell her & her daughter thank you very much for taking care of YOUR dog & how worried you were. Maybe you could offer for the daughter to come & visit with the dog so that way the little girl can still feel a little connected... she can then learn a very important lesson about how important it is to return things to their rightful owners.

How long have you had this pup? It has been missing a little over a week? You know where it is? Are you grazy, go tell the teacher, take an adult with you that you would appreciate your dog back ASAP ! ! ! When you are gone and the dogs are left outside is there anyone at all home with them? IMO dogs should never be left outside all day by themselves even if the yard is fenced in because they can dig their way out or someone could come and take them. Hope all turns out good for you and your pup.
