I'm so sorry Chuck has gone missing. I'm posting a few tips here that might add to your tactics that you're using. We've all seen the posters, flyers and ads for a "missing dog". But when the sign you make reads "missing puppy" that wording can arrest ones attention much faster. Reading "child's beloved pet" can tug at heartstrings.
If your dog has been spooked into running, she might not come running back to you, even when she hears your voice calling. They can become disoriented and become quite shy even if it was the most friendliest dog. That's why it's very important to listen carefully for whimpering, whining, and to shine that flashlight underneath sheds, porches, vehicles, and other potential hiding spots. Don't count on a spot being too small, either! It's surprising how tight a space a terrified dog can squeeze into.
