"Boo", Yorkshire Terrier, Millbrae
As of December 17, 2009, Boo is still missing.
Thanks for your help this morning in trying to track Boo down. Also, please help us say thank you to Dino and Dot. They worked really hard today! Based on the route that Dino led us through, we are going to expand our search area. We will keep on looking, posting flyers, walking the neighborhood, hoping that some good-natured people will pick Boo up and return him to us or Boo may detect our scent and find his way home. Depending on how our search will develop, we may have to solicit your and Dino's help in the future.
Thanks again and Best Regards,
Jenny and David
Boo is a three year old unneutered gold, silver and black Yorkshire Terrier. He is wearing a black leather studded collar with an ID tag. He is not microchipped. He had only been with his current people for about one month. A friend was moving out of the country and decided to leave Boo with Jenny and David. Boo had been missing for a few days when I was called.
They had taken him out to their front yard and then he suddenly disappeared. They weren't sure how he got away, either up the driveway or around the back through some bushes.
There was a sighting of Boo a few blocks away from their home later than evening. We went to that spot and started the search there. The track went down the street and then cut in behind some houses to a creek that was dry at this time of the year. However, it was very rocky and rough. We followed Boo's scent all the way down the creek and then up to a backyard. It went up to the street and then headed down the street, through several neighborhoods, across live commuter railroad tracks and then down them and then ended up in a type of circle and the track went around at least a couple of times. At this point Boo's people decided to stop the search because they both had to go to work. They had taken the morning off to do the search. They said they would continue the search on their own.
About a month later I received an email about a possible sighting of Boo. Somebody had seen a lady walking a Yorkie into a senior facility who appeared to look like Boo. An employee at the facility spoke to this person and saw the dog. It was not Boo. They continue to look for Boo.
