Default Missing / Stolen Anatolian Shepherd in Indiana

Permission given to cross post.........

Christmas at our farm was not merry this year. Our 4 year old Anatolian
Shepherd went missing between 4:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. EST yesterday
(December 25.) She is a VERY LARGE (155 pounds and 31 inches) working
female. Sophie is a fawn with a black mask. She has slight red and
black tips to her coat--a few scars here and there. She was wearing a
red collar when she disappeared. We are definitely of the opinion (as
well as the local sheriff) that Sophie did not wander or stray off. We
have searched the area to find any signs of her to no avail. Please
understand that this girl does not leave her post except to rid the area
of predators or carrion. The mixed breed (G. Shepherd/Rot) male that
she works in tandem with is still on the premises--noticeably
upset/distraught. He will not stay in his house, but was on our front
porch in terrible wet, snowy weather preferring the safety of the front
door to getting out of the inclement weather. This is definitely not
normal behavior for Bear. He would not "face me" for several hours
after her disappearance. If only he could talk.

Sophie will advance on a threatening human and would alert and not allow
a stranger to approach her, so she did not go willingly with anyone. I
have found out that we have a problem in our area with dog "poachers"
who seize "purebred/purebred looking" animals and "dispose" of them in
various manners--none the least of which is dog auctions, labs, or fight
HER RETURNED HOME. PLEASE CALL ME AT 812-486-5445 or email me at
[email protected] if you have ANY information about Sophie. While her
size is her biggest identifying factor, she is very intelligent, and has
had obedience training to supplement her guarding so she does lead and
handle well.

Lambing/kidding is in 6 weeks and I don't know what I'll do without her.
Don't know what I'll do without her regardless--she's my baby girl!
Thank you,
Sara M. M. Jolliff
