"Paco", Chihuahua/Pug mix, Black, Oakland - Found!

Paco is an all black, one year old, Chihuahua/Pug mix. He has a curly tail and bug eyes. He is not wearing a collar and is not microchipped.

I received a call that Paco was missing from his home. He was last seen by his person as she left for work that morning. Paco and the other dogs do not have access to the yard, but instead use pads until somebody comes home at lunch to take them out. The house has a burglar alarm, and the alarm had not been set off. She could not figure out how he got out of the house. There were no sightings of Paco outside the house.

In the house there is an attic with access from the main house with a set of stairs from the back of the house. Paco has been up in the attic in the past. She said she checked the entire house and the attic but did not find Paco.

I recommended that they go through the house again, and this time act like they had never gone through the house before. Act like this would be the first time. This would get them away from thinking, "Oh, we have already checked there."

I got a call early the next morning that she and her boyfriend went through the house and attic again, and found Paco stuck in a hole in the floor of the attic. He had been missing for over 48 hours. He never made any sounds as they went through looking for him.
