Do you recognize this fur baby? This poor dog was found after the devastating tornadoes ripped through Mississippi earlier this week. This Facebook thread tells the story.

There's no other information available, but hopefully someone will recognize this lost sweetheart. His owner is most likely a Winston County resident.

If this is your dog, please contact Facebook: Tornado Mississippi Lost/Found pets.

This Facebook group page is assisting, with information on rescue groups, where to have pets scanned or treated and other up to date information. Residents who find an animal are asked to hold onto it until it's owner is located.

Please leave a phone number where you can be reached. Don't depend on people being able to reach you on Facebook.

Also remember to be very careful who you release a "found" pet to. Sadly, in other disasters, people have taken advantage of the situation and taken custody of pets that did not belong to them.

People who have lost everything don't need to deal with nefarious folks also.. These disasters bring out people who scam, so please beware.

Examiner articles are unpublished after pets are reunited with family. This simplifies keeping up with the many pets still needing help finding their family.

Feel free to copy and past this information to the Facebook group page, as it will help greatly in locating a missing fur baby.
