"Dixie", Black with White, DLH, San Rafael

Dixie is an adult indoor/outdoor, female, microchipped, black with white paws DLH. She is wearing a red collar with a bell, but no tags.

She did not come home one night even though she has a very regular schedule. Her home is behind a large open space, and her person believed she was taken by wildlife. Her person knew that she did not ever go to the front of the house, and existed back and forth through the back fence. It was never known the reason why Dixie would not go to the front of the house.

After checking the block surrounding the house, including the open space, we found the track leading away from the home, down the street.

Her person stopped the search after four hours. He said he would continue to look for Dixie.

My best guess is that Dixie was aware of a particular animal that was regularly in front of her home, and she was afraid of this animal. I think she was pretty good about keeping away from this animal for the last three years. Something unusual happened this one particular time and she came in contact with this animal by accident.
