After 12 days of searching, he had lost hope. But then he learned about this awesome tip and how this has reunited many lost dogs with their families.

“On day 12 of searching for my dog in a heavily wooded area, distraught and hopeless, I ran into a couple of hunters. They said they lost the occasional dog on a hunt but always got them back. What they told me has helped many dogs and families be reunited. I’ve given their advice out a few times in the last couple days, so I thought if reddit has any lost dogs out there, this could help:
The dog owner(s) should take an article of clothing that has been worn at least all day, the longer the better, so the lost dog can pick up the scent.
Bring the article of clothing to the location where the dog was last seen and leave it there. Also, if the dog has a crate & familiar toy, you can bring those too (unless location undesirable for crate). You might also want to leave a note requesting item(s) not to be moved.
Leave a bowl of water there too, as the dog probably hasn’t had access to any. Do not bring food as this could attract other animals that the dog might avoid.
Come back the next day, or check intermittently if possible. Hopefully the dog will be waiting there.
I was skeptical and doubted my dog would be able to detect an article of clothing if he didn’t hear me calling his name as loud as possible all day for 12 days. But I returned the next day and sure enough found him sitting there!
I hope this helps someone out there who’s missing a best friend. Good luck :)
Please share to help more families find their missing four-legged family members. I’ve seen this work a number of times.

a woman lost her cat and with the tips provided by a 'pet detective' (someone who looks for lost pets) she found him after 27 days
so she wants to help others and started a website with lots of useful tips (a baited trap every single night helped her)

Such valuable information in this thread - particularly regarding bringing an article of clothing to the location of where the dog was last seen and leaving it there.

AND it doesn't seem to matter how long ago the dog was lost.

This was posted to the “Murphy Braun” Facebook page on the 16th of June 2014: ... &ref=br_tf

“After 20 long months of being in the Tahoe National Forest, Murphy has come home.
As you can imagine we are completely shocked and amazed with the miracle of her surviving this long.
We responded to a call from a couple who spotted a dog matching her description in an area within 5 miles of where we lost her.
After multiple days looking for her without success, we left her bed and our clothing behind with the campground host, in the hopes that she would respond.

A week went by and we got a call from the campground host who was able to coax her into a kennel after she had been sleeping every night on the blanket and clothing that was left behind.

We were reunited with Murphy, on Sunday afternoon – Father’s Day!

She is on the road to recovery, very thin and frail but happy to be home with her family. We have so many people to thank the list is endless.

Words cannot describe how grateful we are.

Homeward Bound was instrumental in their efforts to help, the campground host – Jason, Jacob (guy that made the call), Missy, Lea, Deann, Teresa, Mike, Mike, Mary, Jason, Lauren, Larry, Bubba, Wawa, Bob and Kim —

You all know who you are Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are forever grateful.” – Nathan and Erin Braun ... -family-2/
