Default Found then lost :(

I found a very sweet corgi mix running around my neighborhood. She was a little wary, but warmed up to me quickly. No collar/tags so I drove her to my vet to be scanned, but no chip either

It would have been very inconvenient to keep her at home, so they suggested I take her to the Animal Defense League (no kill shelter). So I drive her over there, and they don't accept animals on the weekend because they don't have a vet there. So at that point I decide I'm just going to take her home and keep her in the backyard for the night, and walk the neighborhood with her tomorrow to see if anyone recognized her. I put her in the yard and went inside to rest for a few minutes, then grabbed my camera to take pictures and some food/water for her. I got into my yard and she was gone. I must not have latched the gate properly because she somehow got it open. I walked up and down the street looking for her but she was nowhere to be seen. I went ahead and posted about her on Craigslist in hopes that someone is looking for her to at least give them a clue as to her whereabouts, but I feel just awful for not making sure the gate was secure. She seemed reasonably well cared for, although she had a growth on one of her toes and she was not spayed. Such a sweet friendly dog, I really hope she found her way home instead of out onto a busy street

Hope the corgi found her way home.

As quickly as she got out of her yard, that's probably what she did for her owners! Hopefully they were out looking for her and she got home safe ...

Do you have LOst DOg REgistry? I always call them first. Even if the dog gets away it gives a recent location. LDR is in our phone book, not an online thing.

Still no sign of her. I'll be kicking myself for a few days for not making sure the gate was latched all the way, since it was raining and I just wanted to get inside. Hopefully she got home, or barring that maybe someone else took her in. She is very friendly with just a little coaxing. I'd never heard of the lost dog registry, but I googled it and it directed me to a website called fidofinder.com so I put her info up there in addition to the ad I posted on craigslist. Not much else I can really do since she's not here anymore, but it's good to have the extra info around in case I run across another stray in need of help.
