"Niki," Mini Dachshund, Red with Wire Coat, Santa Rosa


Still Missing as of January 24, 2014


______________________________________________________________________

Niki is an eight pound red, year old, wirehaired Miniature Dachshund. When she went missing on a Friday morning, she was not wearing a collar, but she was microchipped.

The family only had Niki for less than 24 hours when she escaped through a tiny unknown hole under the backyard fence. Prior to my arrival there were no sightings of Niki after she took off, but, while we were initially checking the area, we did find a person who said her daughter saw Niki within an hour after she went under the fence.

During the first day it was obvious that Niki was running loose by herself. It was clearly a pattern of a scared dog running every which way possible. By the second day, there was a strong indication that Niki had been picked up by a homeless/transient person. The initial pick up area was an area off the main trail where Niki went into an area that was a homeless camp, and from there the track was going in and out of various homeless camps and hangouts all around Santa Rosa.

We continued for a third day, and the track continued all the way down Santa Rosa Avenue and into a very rural area full of large farms and open spaces. We found several homeless camps all along.

The search was stopped at the end of the third day by Niki's people. They said they would continue to look for her.
