Moving story in Welkenraedt, Sébastien is looking for his dog Terry for … 13 months!

“It’s a dog that I had across Spain, a greyhound greyhound. It was a stray dog, but that, I didn’t say during the adoption. His age, too, told me that he was 4 years old and he by 8. Today., he has 9 … “

Not a first …

Sébastien began the process of adopting Terry to compensate for the loss of a dog that died at 17.5 years old, a Spanish blind dog collected in 2007. “My other dog was wasted when Olivier died, so I adopted Terry. Since Terry ran away, I re-adopted a Russian greyhound because my other dog was wasted again (so I have three dogs including one of wood …). ” Because Terry lives together in Henri-Chapelle only for three weeks. “I had Terry in March 2021. And he left at 5 am on May 22, 2021. He opened the back door and found a space in the fence in the yard. I went to see Henri-Chapelle, Then I understood at 8 am that we had to react. I put up ads and we started putting up posters. We put up over 6000 and I just made 500 again! “

The problem is that Terry is an expert in running away, something his master did not know. “But I became an expert in the search for dogs, though I have yet to manage to catch him (he is very, very smart, this was confirmed to me by veterinarians and behaviors who have never seen this) Terry. already fled to Spain … and it took two years to catch it !, the German and Dutch borders … “ And Sébastien is sure of it: he was always on Terry.

“I was taken for a tekel”

“All this has already cost me a lot of money. I invested in cages (I put roast chicken in it, but it just dried around the cage), in cameras, we flew drones, bought lozenges to make him sleep … I also post on Facebook, so that everyone recognizes it and so that people don’t forget it, I have photos, a video from time to time … Now I learn to search and search before I move because I keep other dogs. … Sometimes I traveled 200 miles[200 km]to meet a dachshund. ”

Chase with police on the highway …

In the first days of his escape, Terry took the main roads, by day. From now on, he favors the fields, the RAVeL (Sébastien slept with a RAVeL) and at night. Terry was even… police chased. “We tried arrows to make him sleep, but it took twenty minutes to work … Terry can go for several miles during that time. He’s a greyhound, he goes far. In June 2021, highway police were closed section between Battice and Eupen to pursue Terry.Dog at 73 km / h, the officer never saw this.Local police tried to catch him in Andrimont, Marche-en-Famenne soldiers also tried … In vain.In France., They tried tracker dogs and spider nets, but we never managed to find it. “

extortion attempts

The Welkenraedtois a “all won” and this story. “Spanish came to pick him up, I had threats, a request for bail 5.000 € … But I will not stop, is in my character. I would not know how to abandon him, though” It may well be it is.For me, it is not safe, I do not want to find it by the way. But there I will take him to be buried there. Before having it, there was the whole process of adoption, and this research gave me even more love for it. According to their behavior, he will at one point click and let himself be approached. He must know I am looking for him, feel it. “

And if Sébastien Dohogne recovers Terry, he will still have to find a solution to give him a margin of freedom. “I will not leave it between four walls. We will have to find a way to give it a form of freedom, through education or other. There will be a lot of work to do, the fight will continue.” he concluded, more attached than ever to his dog.
