    We have a dog that has escaped from our yard. He is a white and brown PBGV, about 25 pounds with a red collar on (no ID) and answers to TANK.
    He was last seen near Tithables Circle in Broadlands north. If you can grab him, please call 703-200-4050

    Thank you.

    Best of luck getting him back. I was in that situation with my dog earlier this summer. Through a lot of community support, we got him back after about 13 days. I'll keep my eye out.

    We drove around all night and haven't found him yet. Please keep an eye out for him and call me if you spot him. He is mostly white, medium length course hair, usually keeps an erect tail when walking and has brown markings on his neck, head, and the base of his tail. 703-200-4050.

    Can you tell me what PBGV means? I know the PB stands for pure bread, but the other two letters have me stumped.

    He is an extremely friendly dog and will come if you call his name, Tank.

    Just looked for the little guy on a walk with my two pups and didn't see him. Even called his name a bit. Any idea where he may go? We typically walk Claiborne Parkway, but for the afternoon walk, I can take a route along Chickacoan or other streets if you have a better idea. Figured he may be attracted to other dogs. Good luck!

    Thanks Dogood. The problem is he's a scent hound who'll follow his nose wherever it will take him. They're bred to hunt rabbits so he'll most likely be in the woods as opposed to a street. I'm thinking though that by now he's exhausted and he may be wandering on an easier surface like a street or sidewalk.

    Thanks again- this is devastating to us.

    My thoughts are with your family and I will keep an eye out for him.

    Thank you all so very much for your thoughts and help in finding him. We have driven the area over and over since 10:30 last night and haven't seen a trace of him. If you want to see what he looked like as a puppy, not unlike what he looks like now, go to:

    Tank is totally cute! I've never heard of this breed and I thought I knew dogs. I'm very sorry this has happened. I don't know what I would do if my dog was lost. I'll keep my eyes open and pray he returns home.

    If there are any lurkers here from other communities who could link this page to their forums, that would be greatly appreciated. The way he moves, he may not be in Broadlands anymore.

    One other detail, in addition to the big red collar, he also had on a smaller tan collar.

    Thanks for asking... I didn't have a clue either so I didn't know what I was looking for. I'll keep my eyes open.

    I would also alert all the local veterinarians (drop off a picture) in the event someone has him and decides to take him to a vet for a check up! Leave nothing to chance.

    I went ahead and forwarded this to our friends here in Broadlands and Brambleton. We didn't see Tank this afternoon, unfortunately. I'm going to take the pups for an hourlong walk tomorrow morning and take a different route through a couple wooded sections. Hoping for good news for your family.

    We're truly thankful for everyone's efforts in trying to locate Tank. It's very depressing that no one has sighted him at all. But tomorrow's another day and we're holding out hope someone will find him soon.
