"Bogie," DSH, Solid Grey, Belmont


Still missing as of July 17, 2012

__________________________________________________________

Bogie is a one year old solid grey DSH. He is not wearing a collar and he is not microchipped. 

He was last seen by one of his people early Saturday morning on the front lawn of their home. 

There were no sightings of Bogie after he went missing.

The beginning of the track led down to the dead end of their street and then went around and around and up and down the cliff side underneath the homes. It was obvious he was being chased by another animal. From there the track came out and then went straight down the street past his home and then darted into another open space between and underneath more houses. He was still being chased. 

Eventually, Bogie was on his own, wandering through Belmont and into Redwood Shores.

"Coconut," Hedgehog, Berkeley - Found!


Coconut is a one year old Hedgehog. She was out in the back yard of their home with the children around 3 PM, who went inside for a couple of minutes. When they came out, Coconut was no where to be seen. They scoured the yard, but could not find Coconut.

We found her track leading away from the last known spot to a broken board in the fence, leading into a next door neighbor's yard. We went to that yard, which was very woodsy with very thick and overgrown vegetation and found her track leading through the yard and into the next neighbor's yard, which was very trimmed and well maintained, through a gate shared between the two yards. From there the track led through the yard and out the yard through another gate, which led to the street. From there the track led straight down the street for a couple of miles where it turned. 

I told Coconut's people that I believed Coconut had been picked up while outside on the street. 

Coconut's person was adamant that Coconut could never have been picked up and carried anywhere by anybody since, according to them, no person could ever pick her up without being barbed. However, they did tell me several times that they were able to pick her up when she was "in a good mood and willing to be picked up." They said she would become very territorial of her habitat, but would be more willing to be picked up and petted when she was outside her habitat and territory. I reminded her that Coconut would have been outside her habitat and territory once she got into those yards and onto the street and may be more willing to be picked up. She remained adamant that Coconut would never allow anybody to pick her up and she stopped the search at the two hour mark since she did not believe that Coconut was picked up and carried anywhere. She insisted that Coconut was still somewhere in the neighborhood and that Dino was not tracking Coconut's scent.

"Colby," DSH, Orange Tabby, San Jose






Still Missing as of July 17, 2012

_____________________________________________________

Colby is an adult, indoor/outdoor orange tabby DSH. He is microchipped, but he is not wearing a collar. 

He was seen leaving the house on his regular daily routine, but he never returned. There were no sightings of Colby after he went missing.

The track we found went into a local water canal, which was known to be a local hangout of Colby's. The track we found appeared that he got picked up inside that canal area and he never made it back home, though he was less than two houses away. The track indicated that he was picked up and carried away.

An animal communicator confirmed one of the locations where we tracked Colby to, near the far end near the creek. His people said they would continue to look for him.

"Ziggy," DSH, Grey Tabby, Belmont



Still missing as of July 17, 2012

__________________________________________________

Ziggy is a three year old, indoor only, Grey Tabby DSH. He is not wearing a collar, but he is microchipped. He got out of the front door by accident. 

There was a single sighting of Ziggy by his person the following day after he went missing. His person went to that location and saw Ziggy. He called Ziggy to him, but Ziggy ran off. That was the last time Ziggy was seen. 

The track we followed led away from the house, and for a couple of miles, it appeared that Ziggy was alone. However, at one point, it appears that Ziggy got captured and picked up and then was carried away. 

At the end of the search, Ziggy's person believed he saw Ziggy hiding in some bushes near where we stopped. He tried to catch Ziggy, but could not find him. He told me he stayed in the area for over 48 hours attempting to catch this cat, but could not confirm the cat he actually saw was Ziggy. Several cats were captured in traps set in the area in private property, but none of them were Ziggy.

Thanks for your help today.  Dino was quite impressive.

I'll let you now how it turns out.

350 Cases in Over Three Years!

My blog keeps a count of all the cases which I have accumulated. 95% of these cases are actual on-site searches with Dino. The rest are phone conversations.

Keep in mind that many, many cases involve multiple days of searching, yet each case is only counted once, so the number of actual on-site searches is probably about one third higher!
