I live in the country and someone recently dropped off a black lab (unsure if purebred). She is almost a year old.  She has been spayed.  I notice when she runs, she always has her nose to the ground.  Yesterday, she took off in the woods and she has not returned.  Is this type of behavior typical for a lab?  This happened once before.  She was gone for 5 days, but suddenly appeared playing in the yard as if she had never left.  Any input and/or suggestions appreciated.

If allowed, a dog will roam and leave the house to play. If you don't want her to do so, you'll have to pen/tie her up or get an underground fence. For your dog's safety, i suggest you do one of those. While your dog is loose she can get run over, get into fights with dogs, or may have trouble finding food/water. Don't take that warning lightly because my friends dog did the same thing and one time it never came back.
