Bullseye, a 2-year-old mix breed pup, was still lost early Tuesday morning within the forest off highway 74 and park rangers reportedly told the owner they can’t search for him.
Bullseye’s owner, Jimie Cespedes, 47, said she was worried about coyotes, cars and “dog-nappers.”
“He’s cute and friendly… He’s a great dog, who wouldn’t want him?” Cespedes said. “But I need him.”
Cespedes was driving west on Ortega Highway about 2 p.m. when she overcorrected and veered into oncoming traffic. She swerved back into her lane and ended up in a ditch just west of Nichols Institute. Her Hyundai. She sustained minor injuries.
But in the wake of the accident, her dog slipped out of the car and ran.
“Bullseye took off like a bullet,” she said.
Cespedes said Bullseye, a black-and-white dog weighing 15 to 20 pounds, isn’t just her service dog:, he's her best friend and she is frantic without him.
The dog should have on a collar or harness with tags.
Anyone with information about Bullseye is asked to call Sara at 530.941.5469 or Jimie at 714.631.7177.
