River & Reno

We're lost and want to come home!

Reno and River ran away from home on Dec 7, near Oxford, Iowa. Have been seen in Swisher, East and West Amana. We're very worried about them, and want them to come home.Maybe they think they're on vacation, but we can't seem to find them anywhere! There's so much open land around here, and they do love to run. We've had so many wonderful people keeping their eyes out for them.They have chain collars, and tags, and both have microchips. Sometimes they have gotten the collars off when playing, so I hope they are still on! They respond to a whistle, and both love to howl.If anyone sees them, please call Teri at 319-325-4535.

Unfortunately, my babies were found over the weekend, still together. They were trying to get home, and almost made it. Thank you for everyone who were still looking. I hope they are running and playing in heaven! They will be missed, always.

Thank you everyone who is still helping us look for them. We haven't heard anything new in weeks, and are getting discouraged. But I know they are very smart and I still pray they find their way home. I will not give up looking!

We lost our male GSD on a walk last April, and are still constantly searching. My heart goes out to you and I hope you find your dogs. I know how awful it is not knowing.

We still haven't found them, and are getting desperate. I now know where every german shepherd lives within 10 miles of my house, though. They were last seen in West Amana, on Dec18, for sure. I hope someone will see them again soon! I miss them!
