Volunteers are pressing on in their search for a Central Texas man’s missing service dog, which disappeared after a traffic accident that left the man injured.

The 8-year-old miniature Yorkie named Whiskey fled following a traffic accident on Oct. 13 at Brazos Park East on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard between Herring Drive and Lake Shore Drive.

The dog’s owner, Randall Smith, was taken to a local hospital.

Smith has since been released from the hospital and he’s been searching ever since for the dog.

“I am heartbroken and I need him back,” he said.

The effort to find the small dog has expanded over a number of Facebook pages.

Smith is asking anyone who sees the dog to call him at (254) 707-6012.

The McKinney-based group Mutts & Mayhem Emergency Search and Rescue says one of its coalition partners will conduct a foot search this weekend for the dog, which was impacted by the front airbag in the collision and may have been injured.
