Doger dug out of Richard's yard on June 25, 2006. Richard lives on east 33rd street in Oakland between Highland Hospital and Oakland High school.
Doger is 5 years old. 60 # with scars on his knees and top of paws. High strung and very, very smart.
Doger actually lives and is licensed in Marin County, CA

He is a fear biter and doesn't like delivery trucks and the men in them in uniform. Whoever has him should be mindful of the responsibility that goes with keeping Doger. He is very territorial and overprotective in the area he feels he needs to guard or the persons he needs to protect. He has been recorded as biting a jogger and a CHP officer. He is also needy for attension and very well trained. He will sit or lie down with a look or by pointing at the floor. He loves tennis balls. His family, including two children, miss him very much!

Contact: Lynette Harris 415-455-8455, cell 415-297-4658,
Richard's number is 510-295-3594

  • Psychic Friend's message from Doger-
    It is so painful to hear of the loss of Dodger while you were away. It's a little harder for me to connect because of all the emotion around the issue and my own emotional feelings. This is what I get and perhaps by the time this reaches you things will have changed.
    I feel Dodger wanted to get out of the yard to return home to you....he does not feel safe anywhere else even if it is someone he knows and trusts. He is very hard to catch and is skillfull at avoiding people and others catching him. I don't feel he is dead, but I do feel he has wandered far...I see lots of fields...and has kind of made friends, almost like a pack, with other dogs. He wonders how to get home, but he is also a survivalist and strong he says, to tell you. He knows how to survive out there. Now this message seems to be coming direct from Dodger, "Please do not feel angry or sad at my disappearance, it has been hard for me to adapt to the rules in the human world, sometimes my brain would get very confused as i am wired to protect at all costs and you and my kids were always my pack, my duty!! and my love. But I didn't belong in the thing you call city is very stressful for me and I don't understand what is wrong with biting those I feel are a threat. I like roaming free, I miss you....but I also feel safer in the shadows and the ability to run and continue moving all the time. Do not be sad any longer, I am fine, I love you as my family, and I am not scared or hurt....I need the quiet of open spaces and not a lot of humans coming near me,,,they confuse and bother me. Please try to understand my original intention was to get back to you, but now I have adopted a new way of living that suits me. I belong to this world now....thank you for all you gave me....I like licking Michael's face it has a salty sweet taste, and Sophia was like a tiny sheep that I felt very protective championed for me, but I don't belong in this ancestors tell me of mountains and fields of wild flowers growing and freedom and doing the work of herding animals and that is my mind and soul set. I am showed me love which I never knew before and I will carry with me always."
    I miss you and the kids (this is Sierra talking now). Give it a time to let go.....if he does not return...but I see another type of puppy in your life coming in, when the grief is less for you all.

R-"i have received several calls regarding Doger, none have played out some about half our kids playing a "joke" may have been the wrong dog."
Richard says that people have taken their neighbors dogs and tried to give them to Richard for the reward money, knowing that Richard was not the owner of Doger

Richard had a call where someone claimed to have kidnapped doger and wanted more money, they couldn't describe him.

More to do:

  • Please call the emergency vets in Oakland. I know there is also one at the bottom of University Ave in Berkeley.
    to see if any stray injured dogs were dropped off. Broadway pet hospital in Oakland used to be an emergency vet also.
    There should be a list of Emergency vets in the yahoo yellow pages.
  • Please call the Oakland non emergency police number to see if any dog incidents
  • Figure out how to contact personel with PGE, taxi's, Bus drivers, mail carriers

Hi Megan,

Can you please keep a lookout for this lost dog below? Several folks are actively looking for the lost do. I know I have seen several flyes in my neighborhood and heard someone calling for Dodger. Someone is also actively coming in at the Oakland shelter but if you think someone new came in that fits the description numbers are also on this email. We can also assist you in connecting you with the folks if need be.

Thanks for anything you can do.

Hello and thank you to any of you that have time to help us with finding out precious pet. Doger is a high energy and very intelligetn black australian sheppard. we left him with a friend in Oakland while we came on vacation to Spain. I am writing you from and internet cafe. My kids and I are are feeling helpless and devastated. Doger dug out of our friends yard while he was away for the day. I´m sure Doger is looking for us or dead or injured somewhere. Please let us or our friends know if you have any clues for us. The below pages have pictures of Doger online. Heis about 60 pounds and has scars on the top of his paws he does have a bit of white on him also. ´He is licensed and lives in Marin County.
Our friend Terrie can be reached at 415-460-6727 or the friend Richard who lost Doger is at 510 295-3594. Posters are up and Richard is visiting the Oakland and Berkeley animal shelters. Thank you so much for your time.

MAry Quinn called on 8/1 to encourage us to keep looking even for a year. She found her dog after 7 months of searching and visiting shelters regularly. She also helps other owners find their dogs. She says the hearding breeds are less likely to go to people and will probably hide during the day and come our to forage at night.She said he is probably is in a brushy area where he can be away from people and loud noises. She also suggested leaving out food water and our dirty laundry for doger to smell his way home. She lives in Santa Rosa where its much more rural. Urban Oakland may be harder to leave food for him. We will go to the East bay and do more searching in brushy areas.

Doger dog still missed and missing
Doger has been missing since June 2006. He dug out of a friends yard in Oakland. He lives in Marin county and has tags. 5 years old, black with some white on face and paws. He could have traveled quite a ways now. Anyone keeping him needs to know that he will bite people coming into his territory. Off his territory he should be very friendly. Reports of any sitings would be greatly appreciated. Pictures and records of the search for Doger here-
Thank you!
