Dedicated Owner Goes to Great Lengths to Find Missing Min-Pin, Maddox

  How far would you go to find your missing pet? For me, I've gone to great lengths to find my tabby cat, Henry, when he nudged his way out of a poorly screened-in porch years ago by frantically hanging posters throughout the city, knocking on neighbor's doors with a photo of Henry in hand, posting an ad on Craigslist, registering Henry as missing on several on-line pet search sites, visiting area animal shelters, etc, and after all of that effort Henry arrived safely at my back doorstep six days later.

  I was one of the lucky owners to have Henry back in my life within a short time period but Jackie Vestal has been searching tirelessly for her 7-year-old miniature pinscher, Maddox, since Christmas Eve after escaping from a friend's garage while she and her husband were on vacation.

 As soon as Jackie and Brandon were alerted of Maddox's escape the two rushed to Oklahoma City to find him but to no avail so Jackie took a leave of absence from work to dedicate her time to finding her beloved dog and quickly set up a Facebook page, Twitter account and website (Bring Maddox Home)to gain support from the public.  

Maddox's parents are in need of your support so would you please let them know you are crossing your paws for them today?

  5. Since reading about Maddox on Yahoo! I can't stop thinking about him and his mommy Jackie and dad Brandon. I am praying that you are safe Maddox and will be in your mommy's arms very very soon! My Yorkie Annie has gotten out of the house a few times - I can only imagine how difficult this has been for you. So many people totally understand what you are going through and doing and are praying and helping to bring Maddox home - Stay strong Jackie!

  9. I keep praying regularly for Maddox to be found. I wish I lived near where he's lost so I could help with the hunt. Every time I see a pic of him, it makes me think of my own little Min Pin, and I know how I'd be feeling.
