A truck driver's pet dog is attacked by a pit bull at a truck stop on the road and flees and cannot be found. The owner looks for a week before having to return to driving trucks. For almost 3 months, the local townspeople try to find her. The owner flies back once to look again. Several possible sightings, but no one can get close enough, and the dog runs away from all people.
It starts with a classified ad
and then continues with a forum posting.
Among other things, this shows the potential (good and bad) of an online hometown forum.
