"I have an elderly client, 80+ years old. He called me in tears early one morning saying that someone had stolen his dog out of his yard and he didn't know what to do. I told him the dog (Miniature Schnauzer) had most likely gotten out on his own and gotten lost. I told him I would get dressed and come over to his neighborhood to look for the dog.
While I was getting ready, I got a call from a man that said his daughter had found a dog with a Bark Buster collar and wondered if I might know the dog and where he belonged. I asked if he was a Schnauzer, of course the answer was yes. I got their address and called my client so he could pick up his dog. He said after he had investigated further, he found a side gate that was ajar, so he was sure that's where the dog got out. The dog was fairly new to the family so there was no chip or tag yet.
