    I found a stray dog, who looks alot like mine (chiwawa and terrier mix).[​IMG] ^pic of the stray^

    Walked around the neighborhood looking for owner for 2 days, no luck. Took to vet, checked for chip..........:mad:no chip. Posted pictures around the neighborhood.....still no luck. Trying to keep from having to take her to the pound so I've had her for about a week.
    Tried out Buzz today after the map update. Didn't know what it was, nor did Ihink I would use it. I notice there were a good amount a buzzes in my area, which popped up an idea. How about posting the lost dog on buzz? Was a long shot but couldn't hurt. Within one hour....bam! A lady about 2 miles from my house claimed the dog. Sure enough when I met with her the dog knew her instantly. Buzz came through, when nothing else worked. :icon_ banana:

    That's just cool. Buzz will be something to watch for in the coming months. Perhaps the next big thing.

    You need to submit this story to Google. Probably could get it on some blogs (mashable maybe?) too if you can get a happy pic of you, the dog, the owner, and some cellphones.

    Just a thought ;)

    Yes - you buzz that you found a dog, but no description - only the real owner would be able to describe it. Many dogs will run and jump onto a stranger just as much as an owner. I've got one of those! :) mike

    Stupid question, but how do work Buzz? Went to Maps, saw the notification for Buzz, but couldn't figure out how to use it.

    Yeah, I'm sure. She (Foxy is her name, but didn't know it yet) wouldn't come to any one, but as soon as I drove up and Foxy saw the owner she behave the exact same way my dog acts when they know you. Foxy ran from my car straight up to her. You can tell when a dog has a bond to someone. You cant fake that.
