My friend Berkley's dog went missing Friday evening, Feb 4th. They live on CR 42 (the road to Galisteo), maybe a mile in off of Hwy 14.

Artie is an elderly female pointer mix. 16 years old, white, RED COLLAR. Slightly senile. PLEASE HOLD HER IF FOUND and call 505-259-0815 or 505-259-9502.  PLEASE CROSS POST.  See attached flier for photo. Thank you!

This is Artie, still missing 12 days now.  She was wearing a red collar with horseshoes and her name embroidered on it. Tags had recently fallen off.

A white dog with a collar was seen this morning on CR42 near Galisteo by a woman who has worked with 1000s of dogs and knows her dogs.  Please be on the look out if you are down there! She said:

I just saw a white dog w/a collar run by my house on his/her way down to dogs alerted & so did my neighbors dogs...the dog kept moving neighbor at the bottom of our road saw it too. If it is the same dog, your neigbors might come check around here...McKee Road & 42.....the arroyo runs across & down towards the river...La Jara Ranch Rd. I saw the dog at about 7AM.

Thanks so much for keeping this in front of everyone Julie. I was thinking too today that it's been one week. I check the found dog listings daily. Keep hoping, hoping, hoping.

It was only a week ago that Artie was lost from the Hwy 14 - County Rd 42 area near San Marcos Arroyo. This story just breaks my heart. If any one know anyone who lives in the area please encourage them to search their property for her. Her RED COLLAR had her name embroidered on it and horse shoes.

If anyone is in this area today please keep your eyes open for Artie.

Still no luck today. The owners went to the Shelter and walked San Marcos Arroyo east of Haozous today. There may have been a sighting of her on Haozous. I walked that arroyo between Hwy 14 and Haozous with my 2 dogs (in PINK on the map). I saw 4 coyotes (BLUE Cs, the one furthest west there were 3 near a chicken barn). There are coyote and other dog tracks all over in the snow up there. Of course I was hoping she might emerge from under a dry tree to meet my dogs, but I was expecting to find the worst. Closure is also important.

Cindy, Jan, and Walt spent a good part of Saturday going door to door and posting fliers. She is mobile but doesn't hear well. There is still hope, if anyone can get out there to help look.

It sounds like searchers are concentrating on the arroyo south of East San Marcos Rd (CR44A) today. She's posted here and on Craigslist. When searching for Jager last summer a very nice senior woman called who'd seen a stray black dog. She didn't know about Craigslist and didn't notice the fliers, but when she got home she opened the New Mexican and saw our post in the lost section. Class Ads still work (but no, it wasn't Jager). To post in the New Mexican call 986-3000 or email it to Maybe the snow overnight will help in seeing her tracks if she's still outside and wandering.

She was a Greek street dog only for the first year or two of her life. Has been with Berkley and Ben ever since. I think they've lived here MAYBE not quite 2 years. The last time she was spotted, she was headed due north.

Here is roughly a 1 mile perimeter from where she was last seen/lives.  Being a street dog from Greece most of her life she's a survivor!  Has she lived at this location long so she is familiar with the area?
