"Buddha", DSH/Burmese mix, Black, San Rafael

Still missing as of February 14, 2012. 


Search Details:

Buddha is a petite, one year old, black indoor/outdoor DSH. He is micochipped, but he is not wearing a collar. He is very friendly towards strangers. 

He was last seen inside his large fenced yard, and is usually kept in at night. However, on the day he went missing, they were out late that night, and Buddha was not at home when they came back.

We followed a track for several miles that was obvious that he had been picked up and carried away. Then, the track led back almost to the area near to his house.

We followed the track to a remote hillside behind a large community center that was having an event the night Buddha disappeared. The person who picked up Buddha could have also come from the local high school, which was two blocks from Buddha home. 

Buddha's person has difficulty walking due to injured knees, so her daughter was walking with me, while she drove the car. 

I followed the track to a remote hillside and up a steep trail. I stopped to look far up the trail and I saw, what appeared to be at first a small black squirrel sitting in the trail and then running away. Then, I realized that I had just seen Buddha. He is petite, has short legs and a fluffy tail. I called down to the parking lot where Buddha's people were sitting waiting to hear from me. The daughter walked the mother slowly up the trail, and I explained what I had just seen. We walked further up the trail, calling Buddha's name. Dino indicated that Buddha had run into a thicket of brush and bushes and under a hole in the fence. 

We continued walking around the hillside and bushes for a half hour, but could not find Buddha. I suggested setting traps with permission of the property owner.

They said they would continue to look for him.
