A female Yorkie/Maltese mix was lost in December, and a Facebook page has been set up to help bring her home.
Muffie went missing on December 18, 2013, in the Hickory, North Carolina area. Her owner, Holly Presley is devastated between being worried about her well-being, and events taking place at home.
The little dog was last seen in early February on 3rd Street Southeast, then a few days later on 10the Avenue Southeast by some children. A woman in a white convertible with white hair said the dog belonged to her. No other sightings have been made since that time.
Muffie has been with Holly since the day the sweet little dog was born. Until your life has been touched by a dog who goes missing, it's hard to imagine the pain that comes with not knowing.
Holly spends much of her day looking at hundreds of dogs on dozens of websites. I messaged Holly, and she credits Debbie Pilkington Miller, who has a Facebook page called A Voice For Those Who Have No Voice, as helping a lot with the search.
Unfortunately, Muffir is still missing, and this article is just one more way to use social media to find a missing dog. One good thing is Muffie is microchipped
Holly has had to grieve not only her dogs disappearance, but also the death of Muffie's father. "Shelby" Passed away on March 9th, never knowing if Muffie was safe. Muffie's half sister grieves a lot, and can't seem to come out of her shell and move forward.
It was due to even more turmoil that Muffie escaped in the first place. The family had some bad damage done to their house last July that insurance refused to cover. NC Baptist Men Disaster Relief and Knights of Columbus came in and saved the day for them, repairing the damage.
It was during this repair that their back yard fence was compromised, allowing Muffie to escape. Holly is concerned because Muffie was always the type dog to stay near the house, with or without a fence.
Please share Muffie's story with friends, especially those in the Hickory area. Also keep in mind Muffie could be anywhere, as many who steal dogs take them to other areas, where they are offered for sale on Craigslist.
