"Micky", Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher mix, Hayward - Found!
Even though I did not do a search for Mickey, we had one scheduled. This is to prove how quick action with distributing flyers can get a dog safely home.
Mickey is a four month old Chihuahua/Min Pin mix. He is not wearing a collar. He was last seen in his yard the previous night, and it is not known how he got out of his yard. I received a call from Mickey's person that he had heard from a neighbor that same evening who had a young woman come up to their door and ask if anybody was missing a dog that appeared to be Mickey. This neighbor did not recognize the woman from his neighborhood. We scheduled a time to meet for a search that afternoon.
In the meantime, I recommended that he put up as many flyers all around the neighborhood in case the woman come back that evening to see if anybody was missing a dog.
I received a call several hours later, just before we were scheduled to meet, after he had put up flyers all around, that a woman had called him, after seeing one of this flyers, to say that she had Mickey and would bring him by.
