So, if this is the case and you haven't encountered him yet, then I suggest trying to not look for him. For some reason, that works for me when I haven't seen them either. Walk through a lot of different routes and fly different places and hope that you will encounter him. So yeah, train some new Pokemon and walk around a lot. Hopefully, you will find him soon.
Another issue you may be able to help me with, the GBX program for the computer won't communicate with my gameboy, I've installed all the drivers, restarded computer and pretty much worked out all options. It would be nice to be able to back up games.

I don't think that the short one works. But I have tried the really long one and it works. I've caught Celebi, Raikou, Lugia, Ho-oh, and Mew with it, so I would hope that it works for any Pokemon. As for your problem with the GBX program, I have no clue. Sorry!
Well the best way to catch a legendary dog without a Masterball, is to weaken it and give it a status like Sleep or Paralyze, something that won't make it faint. However, when you first encounter it make sure that you have a Pokemon that knows Mean Look or a similar attack that doesn't allow your foe to escape, or have a Pokemon like Wobuffet that has an ability that traps the opponent in play the whole batttle. After weakening it to as low as you can get, start using Ultra Balls. A couple other good balls to use would be a Quick Ball (i think thats the name) or a Timer Ball. A Quick Ball works really well in the first few turns of a battle. A Timer Ball works well as the battle progresses. So, if you can stand to hold out a long battle with a legendary dog, then use Timer Balls. They work really well for me.
