UPDATE 10/20/13: **Wonderful news!** Doogie has been found! We are thrilled that Doogie is safe and will be reunited with his family after he is checked out by a vet. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who searched for him, to everyone who shared for him, and especially the two brothers, Beckon and Ross Bell, who captured and kept him until volunteers arrived. Hopefully having Doogie back home will help his parents with their recovery.
A Texas family is heartbroken and desperately searching for their Scottish Terrier, Doogie.
On Friday, September 27, while traveling through Arkansas, Doogie's family was involved in a terrible car accident that took the life of his doggie sister, Elly Mae, and put his mom and dad in the hospital for several days.
During the confusion, 1 1/2 year old Doogie, weighing about 25 pounds, ran from the scene, obviously scared and possibly hurt.
His parents had to return to Texas to recover from their injuries without both their babies, since Elly Mae was gone and Doogie remains missing.
This grieving family is now counting on the kindness and compassion of others to bring their beloved Doogie back to them. He is microchipped and they are offering a $1,000 reward for his safe return.
The accident occurred in Eastern Arkansas on I-55 in the vicinity of Osecola, Arkansas. He was last seen near mile marker 39 (heading southbound).
If you find Doogie or know of his whereabouts, please call (956) 622-8367 or (618) 806-9300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're sure Doogie is as anxious as his family to be reunited and back in their loving arms again. Having him back will help them all heal from their loss.
If Doogie was picked up by a passerby he can be anywhere by now. Please share everywhere.
