WICHITA FALLS, TEXAS (KFDX/KJTL) - Ray Jones has been driving around Bowie looking for his daughter's missing dog. Pixie is vital not only to Lydia's happiness but also her health.
"She can tell by the scent she puts off that her blood sugar is low or high," said, Lydia's father, Ray Jones.
Lydia is a type 1 Diabetic, and Pixie is her Diabetic Awareness Service dog "in training". Something that her mother and father, Ray and Jill Jones, said makes locating her that much more important.
"She's going off to Texas A&M next year, so about another month and she'll be fully trained. Our intentions were to have a little peace in her going off to college and pixie going with her," said Jill Jones.
Ray said he's walked miles through fields and driven up and down the backroads and has asked residents in the area to keep a lookout too.
"Yesterday afternoon, Lydia and myself both saw her cross Salona Highway at Bishop Road but she was being chased by a couple of dogs and then we lost her after that," Ray Jones said.
The Jones' said that if someone in the area does see her, to know that Pixie is somewhat particular about who can approach her.
"She doesn't like men. She loves kids and girls. She's okay with girls but she will run from a man," Jill Jones said.
The Jones' hope they can locate Pixie soon, and until then, the search continues.
Pixie is an Australian Sheppard, brown in color, wearing a pink collar and purple harness. She was last seen at Bishop Road crossing Salona Highway. If you see her, you are urged to call Ray Jones at (940-222-0468
