I have a miniature pinscher as well, looks just like Maddox.I know min pins. They love to cuddle. Loves the beach and understands everything I say to her. Very smart dogs. I live in Ca, wish I was in OK with my Min Pin, Missy and I would love to help to look for Maddox. My Missy is 6 and ive had her since she was 7 weeks. I love her dearly.

Happily owned by two minpins Daizee and Dozer they are my babies. Jackies determination to find sweet baby Maddox is a true inspiration to us all. She has went above and beyond to try and bring her baby boy home, and i think about her and maddox every day. COME HOME MADDOX!

I had a little red min pin, Harley, but lost her several years ago and think of her every day so I know how Maddox's mommy and daddy feel...I re-post everything that Jackie puts out in hopes that someone will see and help bring Maddox home. Please vote for Maddox and help reunite this little family...

I have a red minpin and his name is Sammy/actually Samson, but he goes by Sammy. He is a very loving dog. He's about 2 and 1/2 we got him as a rescue.

The people who are in love with this dog as their child or baby are deeply sadden and have involed many others to turn towards looking for Maddox...we also, are inspired and in prayer and hope that Maddox will be found soon. Just, one of those things in life where you are unable to totally feel their pain, but are deeply humble to their pain and wish for a great out come! What, else is life all about if we don't have hope and care for one and other! Good luck to finding Maddox!!

Wanted to give a big thanks to everyone that voted for my sweet baby Maddox. His family loves and misses him so much and just wants him home safe! We will NEVER EVER EVER give up on him and are praying this honor will help BRING HIM HOME so we can take him back to his favorite place.. the Beach!! We have been devastated without our sweet baby boy.. We miss his smile, his dimples, his cute face, we miss him squeaking balls non-stop, we miss him watching out the window, we miss him crying & jumping up and down and licking our faces every time we come home from work.. He is our heart, our soul, our pride & joy, and our family is lost without him. We have raised him since he was itty bitty and love him like a child.. Thanks for the thoughts & prayers!!!!

Thank you so much for sharing him with more dog lovers. We are seeing in Oklahoma and the US, how we can can all make a difference and meet truly exceptional people. We would love to see you share more of him with the pet lover family. Sincerely, Jenni - Member of Team Maddox in OKC

On December 27, 2012, I happened upon a comment on facebook… about a lost min pin in Oklahoma City. Maddox’s mom made that comment on a min pin facebook page. I’d seen those posts before, but this one was different. Heartfelt. Scared. I went the facebook page she’d created for him and helped as much as I could from afar.. but you always wonder what “I will never give up on my baby” really means. She said it quite often in her posts.

As time as passed, I have found what it means to Jackie. Never means never. It means not giving up on Maddox. It means not giving up the 26 other dogs she's found in the search, either finding their homes or getting them into rescue. It means accountability. Responsibility. It means what it should mean to everyone.

And from that has grown a team. Team Maddox. A group of volunteers that I am happy to say I’m a part of. A team dedicated to the cause. Some from other areas in the U.S. doing what we can from afar. Some are local… manning feeding stations and cameras. Passing out fliers. Placing posters. Going on sighting calls that come in on the hotline number dedicated to Maddox. And a facebook page of over 3700 followers who love Maddox and Jackie.

Sometimes people say ‘never’ and they mean ‘until they tire’ and sometimes people say ‘never’ and mean it.

More people like Jackie would eventually make shelters and rescue obsolete! A story like hers in Modern Dog magazine would not only help people understand what can be done to search for a lost pet, it may very well may make them a better parent.
