The dog named Lakota disappeared from Ken and Barb Toczek’s home on Oct. 9.Ken is a disabled diabetic.

A handler tracked the 4-year-old female Australian Shepard down Forest Service Road 3350 and determined she was picked up by a vehicle.

“We don’t know who took her,” Barb said. “It was hunting season at the time she disappeared. We speculate it was a hunter that came through.”
