I'm an old member of the board and haven't been on in ages - hello to anyone who happens to remember me. I'm desperate for help and hoping someone has a suggestion. My parents adopted a boxer just this past weekend. Unfortunately he bolted out the front door yesterday evening. He is a very skittish, timid dog and hasn't even been in their home long enough to have built up a trust relationship with them, which is making catching him extremely difficult. They have spotted a few times, so at least they know he is still in the general area and so far not hurt, but he won't come close enough for them to catch him. He's scared of the car, so trying to open the door and get him to hop in for a ride is not an option. He won't get close enough to be lured with treats. I just heard from my mom that she sees him and he's circling, so she's trying to just sit very still and quietly in hopes that he will approach her on his own - making any move toward him just sends him running away, of course. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for how we can get this poor, scared dog back home?
