"Moco," Miniature Schnauzer, Silver/White, San Francisco - Found!

Moco was found in Oakland in the home of a person who said she picked up Moco on a nearby beach a few hours after he went missing. Luckily, Moco's flyer was posted in Oakland and this person saw the flyer and called!



___________________________________________________________________________

Search Details:

Moco is an 18 month old, male Miniature Schnauzer. When he went missing he was wearing a collar with current ID tags and he was microchipped. 

Moco was last seen at Fort Funston dog park as he was being walked by his dog walker. For some reason, Moco did not follow his dog walker back to his vehicle. By the time the dog walker noticed Moco missing, and he searched the area for the dog, Moco was no where around. 

Moco went missing on the afternoon of Friday, January 24 at around 1 PM. I came to do the search the following Wednesday, January 29th. 

There was a possible sighting of Moco, and we were able to confirm that the dog seen was not Moco. The weekend after when Moco went missing, a posting was make to another dog walker's Facebook page about Moco being lost. Another dog walker who lived in the Diamond Heights district of San Francisco saw the post and thought she had seen Moco with another person being walked in her own neighborhood. This information was in turn given to the Moco's person. 

At the first part of the search, we went to that possible sighting in Diamond Heights, and I had Dino checked in all areas, but unfortunately, he indicated that there was no scent there. So, we went to Fort Funston and started in the area where Moco was last seen by the dog walker. After extensively showing Dino the area, he picked up on a track leading out of the parking lot, past the ranger station and up onto Skyline Blvd, where the track then went to the left down the hill. We followed the track down the hill, where it eventually went back into another area of Fort Funston.

At this point, Moco's person stopped the search at the four hour mark and said she would continue to look for Moco. He current Facebook page is listed at the top.

"Meak," Tuxedo Markings, DMH, Angwin/Napa County


__________________________________________________________________________

Search Details:

Meak is a one year old, 10 pound Tuxedo marked, indoor/outdoor DMH. When he went missing he was not wearing a collar but he was microchipped. 

Meak was last seen inside the apartment during the day, but he did not return later that day.

Meak went missing on January 8th and I came to the area to do the search on January 28th, 20 days later. 

There were no sightings of Meak after he went missing. 

Meak and his person had only moved to the rural area about two weeks prior, just before Christmas, and Meak had only been let outside to the area for a couple of days when he disappeared. A local neighborhood dog was seen chasing Meak one day before he went missing. 

After doing an extensive search of the vast area surrounding Meak's home, Dino found the track leading past the house where the dog lived who had chased Meak the previous day, but the owner of that dog said they were keeping the dog confined in the house after they were told their dog was seen chasing Meak. 

The track led towards the direction of the small town of Angwin, about a half mile from the home. After going into town, it led around the local college campus, across the main road and to a empty field that bordered a sewage treatment plant at the edge of town. From there it went across the road again and onto a hiking/biking trail that led downhill and then eventually down another road. 

The search was called off at the four hour mark by Meak's person. He said he would continue to look for Meak.

"Paco," Australian Cattle Dog Mix, Red and White, San Jose - Found!


___________________________________________________________________________

Search details:

Paco is a 13 month old, 22 pound, red and white, short coated Australian Cattle Dog. When he went missing he was wearing a collar with current ID tags and he was microchipped. 

Paco became lost when he got scared by contractors coming into the yard during the day when his person wasn't home. 

Paco went missing on Friday, January 17 and we did the search on the following Monday, January 20. 

There were no sightings of him after he went missing. 

Dino picked up the track leading away from the house and down the street. Within a short time, Paco got onto a local walking/hiking trail that took him quickly out of the area and into other area. Eventually, Paco did return to near the home within a few block but then kept going.

The search was stopped at the five hour mark by Paco's people. They said they would continue to look for him.

The following day I received this text message at 5:15 PM:

"We got Paco back today!!!! Thank you!!!!!

My response: "Excellent!!! Where was he found?"

"At Almaden Lake! The flyers worked!!"

My response: "Great! I found it on the map. Who found him?" 

I did not receive a response back so I don't know more about who found him or the circumstances. Almaden Lake is south of where we stopped the search in San Jose.

Abby is an eight year old, female, 55 pound black Labrador. When she went missing she was wearing a collar with ID tags, but she was not microchipped. 

Abby disappeared after being let out of the back door onto the deck, which leads to an unfenced open space with a steep hillside directly behind the house.

He called for Abby and walked around, but could not find her. 

Abby went missing on Monday, January 13 and we came out to do the search on the following Sunday due to Abby's person's work schedule. That was the first day they were available to be home and provide child care.

"Boycat," DSH, Orange Tabby, San Francisco - Found!

On February 18, 2014, I received a notice from Boycat's microchip company that Boycat had been found. I have not heard from Boycat's people, so I don't know any of the details. 




_________________________________________________________________

Search Details:

Boycat is a five year old, neutered, indoor only DSH orange tabby. When he went missing he was not wearing a collar but he was microchipped.

He escaped from the apartment by accident after running out of the front door, but his person did not know he was outside. He was not discovered missing for about an hour.

Boycat went missing in the afternoon of Thursday, January 16, and we did the search on the following Friday.

There were two sightings of Boycat shortly after he went missing. We started from the most current sighting, just outside the perimeter of the apartment complex, which was only a half a block away from Golden Gate Park.

After showing Dino the entire area surrounding the apartment building, he found a track leading away from the area toward Judah, and then made a left onto Judah and continued towards downtown San Francisco, all the way into the Tenderloin District. It appeared to me that Boycat had been picked up somewhere inside Golden Gate Park and carried out of the area. The track was not the direction of a cat traveling on their own, but more of a human.

Boycat's people stopped the search at the four hour mark and they said they would continue to look for him.

I received an email from the microchip registry that Boycat had been found around the date of February 18, which would mean that Boycat was missing for a month. There are no details as to where he was found or how. So far, I have not heard directly from Boycat's people.

New Facebook Group for Lost and Missing Pets





This group is to exchange ideas on how to keep your pets safe and prevent them from becoming lost. Other discussions can be about things to do in the future in case your pet becomes lost, what to do if your pet becomes lost and what can be done to get your lost pet back home quickly. Another discussion can be what to do if you see a lost pet, and how to understand animal shelters and how they can help you find your missing pet. It is OK to post flyers about missing pets.
