"Mariah," Labrador/Shepherd Mix, Tan, San Francisco - Found!

I received this email about a week after the search from a friend to Mariah's person:

"Hi, I just wanted to let you know that Mariah was found in Sea Cliff tonight.  A lady walking her dog saw her crouching in a corner of a home and tried to go to her but couldn't get close so she went back home to get a leash and went back and Mariah still wouldn't let her near but did follow her back to her house.  She was able to get her in the house and to sit so she could get Peggy's # and they were reunited at 6pm.  I'm not sure Peggy will give Dino credit but it was he that pointed us in that direction.  Thank you for your help. Betty"


Mariah is a six year old, yellow, 40 pound, Labrador/Shepherd/Terrier mix. When she went missing she was wearing a collar with ID tags and she was microchipped. 

Mariah was last seen inside her home while the house was having some construction being done on it. Mariah got scared of the people and took off through the open front door, even though they had been in the home for several weeks without an issue. 

Dino picked up the scent leading out of the area and into Golden Gate Park and into the other side, through the Seacliff area, throughout the Presidio, and eventually all the way to the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, where the search was called off by Mariah's person. She did not believe that Mariah would travel that far. 

See email above from a person who helped on the search. Mariah was found several days later back in the Seacliff area, where Dino's initially tracked her to.
