A grief-stricken Davis family hopes the community can help find the beloved pet of a young woman who died unexpectedly earlier this summer.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for the safe return of Calliope, a 6-year-old female dog that’s a brindle pit bull and German shepherd mix.

Calliope belonged to Samantha Young, who died unexpectedly on July 25 at the age of 25. Lora Schroeder, Young’s mother, articulated the family’s despair, and desperation for Calliope’s return:

“In two months, my family has lost two members. One can be returned us, and I hope with all my heart that this happens and happens soon.”

Schroeder said her 11-year-old daughter, Madison, is especially distraught at the disappearance of Calliope. Schroeder explained that for the girl it’s, in Madison’s words, “like losing Sissy all over again.”

Calliope managed to escape the back yard of the family’s residence at 1405 F St., near Community Park, during a thunderstorm on Sept 21. Calliope is wearing a pink collar with a red name tag in the shape of a bone.

She was last spotted at approximately 6 p.m. Sept. 21, running down Fifth Street, at the G Street intersection.

“We have gotten a few sporadic reports of sightings since, but nothing substantial,” Schroeder said. “Friends, family, members of the SPCA and strangers alike have been aiding us in the search.”

To guarantee there was incentive in the search, three family friends each donated a portion of the money that’s being offered for Calliope’s safe return.

Anyone with information regarding the dog’s whereabouts is encouraged to text or call 530-400-0503, or send an email to [email protected].
