KWTX's John Carroll reported that volunteers are hard at work helping a man search for a very important companion.

Volunteers were helping a Central Texas man find his service dog, which went missing after a traffic accident that occurred back on October 13th.

The service dog lost is Whiskey, who is an 8-year-old miniature Yorkie. The service dog went missing in the vicinity of  Brazos Park East on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard between Herring Drive and Lake Shore Drive. The dog fled after the accident happened.

The owner of the service dog, Randall Smith, had to be taken to the hospital after the accident occurred. Smith has been released from the hospital, and has been on the search for his dog ever since.

Smith said, “I am heartbroken and I need him back.” The search for Whiskey has been widespread across numerous Facebook pages.

Smith is asking anyone who sees Whiskey to call him at (254) 707-6012. Mutts & Mayhem Emergency Search and Rescue is a dog rescue group based out of the Mckinney area. The group is going to have one of their coalition partners conduct a foot search for the missing service dog this weekend.
