People,
I‘ve had it! Here in the Northwest, we have an app called “Nextdoor” where it tells you of what is going on in your neighborhood and surrounding places. However, when I go to view it, all I see is messages about lost or found dogs that haven’t been claimed. That really chaps my hide! Fortunately, my four legged son will not have that problem, because I will not allow it. First - He’s an indoor dog and when he goes outside, I accompany him. Second - he is microchipped, but you would need to have a reader if he should ever get lost or stolen. However, today my AirTag/Harness arrived and come tomorrow Gunny-Sgt AirTag collar will arrive tomorrow. Gunny will now be tagged at all times. IF he should ever get the idea to run from me or some clown tries to steal him I will be able to tag him at a moment notice. As you know, stealing French bulldogs are on the rise, and Olde English Bulldogs are a good entertainment in the dog fighting business. I couldn’t imagine my baby in a dog ring fighting for his life. If you love your fur-baby like I do, please take the necessary precautions of protecting him or her

. Here is a picture of what I purchase. Thank you for reading this post. The AirTag is secured and in a waterproof container.
 
It's the same on our Nextdoor. I find it very upsetting and there are usually several a day! Houston is notorious for its stray dog problem, 1+ million, (not a typo), estimated and it seems to be getting worse. People are incapable of being responsible and looking after their pets.
I have to hide the posts as I just can't handle it anymore.

1Chumly,
IKR, it is very disturbing to read the messages. I couldn’t imagine what would be going through Gunny’s mind if he was out there by his self. A very sad situation for all the lost or abandon animals.
 
Same…. I’m like WTH — how are so many dogs and cats lost/missing. ???
 
I hope I am wrong when I write this; they just don’t have the same compassion like we do! I would lose my mind if I lost Gunny! In fact, I just received a collar with an AirTag too. He now has a harness and collar with separate AirTags. I plan on using the collar when he goes to his sitter. The collar is not intended to be used with a leash (hard on the neck). All I plan on using it for is to track Gunny-Sgt at all times.
 
A lot of people got dogs n cats during Covid’s lockdowns. Then inflation kicked in. Sadly we will find more of these pets back in shelters cause people can’t afford an extra mouth to feed.

We have Nextdoor here too and I'm a member/lead. It's a good platform, but used to be far better. Sadly, about 1-1/2 years ago Nextdoor started to allow more self-promotional advertising and GO-Fund-Me posts. Those type of posts clutter what used to be an app that brought Neighbors together. Nextdoor does little of that now.
That said, I too, have seen a small uptick in lost pet posts and a huge increase of found pet posts. It's rare, nowadays, that anyone reports that the pet has been reclaimed.
People are letting their animals run off(or simply doing a sorry job of securing them) because they cannot afford them anymore...or the owners are too lazy to put forth the effort. Having a pet has become a luxury considering the cost of qualified Vet care & food. This is only going to get worse as inflation continues to outpace people's income. Pet owners need to work harder to provide for themselves, but firstly for the pets that so greatly depend on them.
People suck...present company excluded.

If someone steals your dog, guarantee they will remove the tracker. Like mentioned, if it’s an immediate action like dog got out of the backyard, yes you might have that time to look for your dog.

If someone tries to steal my four-legged son, it'll be a very bad day for someone. This is only an extra measure prevention. I am always with my dog (inside and out).
