"Arashi," Akita, Black with Tan Legs, San Jose

Still missing as of November 23, 2014

Here is their facebook page trying to find him:


Arashi is a six year old, male, all black 120 pound Akita. He is wearing a collar with current ID tags and he is microchipped. 

He was last seen on the front lawn of his house at around 10 PM while the husband was across the street talking to a neighbor. When the husband went back into the house, he thought Arashi had gone back into the house because he did not see Arashi on the lawn anymore. An hour later, he looked around the house, but did not find Arashi. They immediately looked around the neighborhood and the area for several hours, but did not find Arashi. 

There were no sightings after he went missing from his home.

We found the track leading away from the house and we continued the search for several hours. The search was stopped as we were loosing light at the end of the day. We continued the search the next day.

At 2 PM the next day, finally Arashi was sighted by a woman in her neighborhood in the same area where we were tracking him. By this time, Arashi had been missing for almost a week. Even though she recognized Arashi as an Akita, and she said she saw his collar and saw him walking down the street, she did not tell anybody. She only happen to see his flyer after we showed it to her husband as we followed Arashi track. By this time, it was 4 PM for us, and we rushed to the location, and did find Arashi's track and followed it for several more hours until after 8 PM, when the searched was stopped due to lack of daylight. 

They said they would continue to search for Arashi.
