Please don’t go.  I know you want your dog back but they will take your money and more than likely give you false hope.  I went to one once and I was robbed in their business at gun point.   There are good ones but most are not good.  Just give you false information.

Dont do it. I understand you’re desparate but all you’ll end up with is broken dreams and an empty wallet. Fortune tellers are going to tell you what you want to hear, and they can help you but first they need x amount of money to help. And then they just continue to gouge you for whatever you’ve got until you don’t have any more.

I went to a fortune teller once with a friend as a lark while we were on vacation together. She read my palm and told me I would be married soon but there was a dark entity blocking me from that happening. Then she told me for $200 she could get rid of the entity. I told her I didnt have that sort of money and she asked what I had. I said “I literally have $40 to my name right now” and she said “Ok, you can give me the $40 and I’ll get started and then you can give me the $160 later on” I politely declined and we left. 

They’re scam artists, every single one of them.

I am so sorry, I hope you find him safe and sound! I agree with PPs, a fortune teller will just take your money and probably not give you any real help or information.

Are there any organizations in your area that use tracking dogs to find other dogs?  For example, in my area there’s a group called “Dogs Finding Dogs”.  They’re pretty successful.  🙂

I hope you find your doggy!

Did he have a microchip?

MissKota1419:  Have you notified any local shelters to look for a dog with his description, just in case someone drops him off as a stray?

I’m so sorry.  Please don’t go. . they will prey on your emotions.  Does your area have any online sites where you can post found and missing animals?  Here we have For the Love of Louie – they post on Facebook

There are better ways to find your dog. Could you please:

– Tell us which country you live in

– Tell us if the dog was chipped

– Give a description of the dog (age, breed etc)

– Describe how you lost him

This information will help us to advise you better.

I totally understand this – I lost my engagement ring in July and considered calling a psychic! Have you looked on Craigslist? I would check the pets and lost and found sections under the community boards. I really hope you find him, I cant imagine losing a pet!

I know someone who tried a physic when she lost her dog a couple years ago. She was told it got hit by a truck and had died and she was devastated for weeks- until the dog showed up at a vet clinic safe and sound. I agree with PP, don’t bother.
