Lost Pointer - Waipakihi Valley

I'm sad to say I lost my dog today in the Waipakihi today. He is a black pointer called Trigger. I took at shot at a stag early in the morning near the river and he took off after it, ripping the lead rope out of my hands. He was chasing it and barking all the way to the top of the range. This was before 8am and I waited all day before with a heavy heart I had to leave. If anyone sees him can you please grab him as he is friendly and give me a call? Scott - 0272706010.
I'm just worried he got his rope tangled and is stuck somewhere as I would have thought he would come back to me. We were about an hour and a quarter up the valley.

I hope he turns up.
I'd be going for a walk up to the ridge in the morning to see if you can hear any barking. As you say his lead might have caught around something and he could start barking if he's stuck in 1 spot for a while.

I did go part way up the ridge twice at different times during the day to listen out, but didn't hear anything. I'll head up tomorrow again and see if I can find him.

SUCCESS!! I have just got back and we have him back. I had just got the the beginning of the river to go and look for him when some young hunters turned up with him. I had told them about my dog on my way out yesterday. They just came across him by chance while hunting. He was tangled up with his rope. So if they hadn't come across him he would have died of starvation I'd say. He doesn't know how lucky he is!!!

great to hear you have got your dog back, could have been a terrible outcome otherwise, those young fellas deserve a "cold one" once they get out. goes to show how important training a bullet proof STOP is on a dog though.

It certainly does. I thought his stop was quite good. But its also a quiet command and I don't think he would have heard it as he took off through the bush. They were gone in a second. Plus the little bugger was trail barking the whole way.

Good outcome, glad your dog is OK Scott. Losing a dog is a pretty gut wrenching experience.

Good outcome.

"Quite good" is the best phrase to describe "sometimes" and sometimes is not all the time.  Without a stop you are better off leaving the hound at home.

In this situation it was a bit different.  My commands are quite quiet for when I'm stalking sika etc. In this case when he took off and started barking he wouldn't have been able to hear my commands.
He has been with me before and shot reds and fallow and never barked once so before then it's never been an issue.
