Michael Buckley had planned to move from Charleston, S.C. to Colorado, and packed up his car with his favorite traveling companion, a five year old English bulldog named Tazzie, but on the way as the two drove through Atlanta, Ga., Tazzie was stolen reported

Last Thursday, Buckley was traveling in his Ford Explorer when he developed car trouble. After spending the night in Atlanta and trying to find his way back to the Interstate, Buckley stopped at the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and Joseph Lowery Boulevard to ask three teenagers directions. When Buckley turned his back for a few minutes, two of the teens jumped into the Explorer and took off.

The car was found the next day by authorities in Atlanta, but Tazzie, who was in the back of the SUV has not been found.

" The dog is all that mattered to me and that's all I want now. I'll give them my car to get the dog back," explained Buckley.

The carjackers stole his sneakers, clothes and his cell phone. If anyone sees Tazzie, please notify Buckley's mother at 202.494.8480. The Fulton County Animal Control has also been notified.

The public and social media do wonders with spreading information. Please help this man find his dog. Any animal lover can appreciate the importance of this missing dog. Please share this story with Tazzie's photo to everyone you know. It only takes a moment to forward the story, and there just might be one person who knows where Tazzie is and will come forward to reunite the two again.
