Lost on Christmas Eve, Maddox Miniature Pinscher Lost in Okc was tracked numerous times from Oklahoma City to Edmond and back. Recently, Karin TarQwyn and her team returned. Near the last sighting of June 10th, it was found sometime afterward, he took up residence under a bushy area and his scent was tracked into someone’s backyard and backdoor. Because of facts gathered, it's believed, he was rehomed, quite possibly in a rescue or maybe to an individual. We have no idea where he is at this point. If you have acquired a male Min Pin, please have him scanned for a chip. Please look at the pictures & videos on his website from the links above. (More info in original post. See link at the bottom of this post)

Let me answer a couple of questions I’ve received. “Wouldn’t a rescue scan a dog turned in to them?” I can’t answer for every rescue, but the answer is “Not all.” Some dogs are turned in ‘owner surrender’ and aren’t necessarily checked. If a dog is surrendered to a shelter by “owner” they're not always checked. And of course, if Maddox was given to someone who thought they were getting him from the owner, they’d have no reason to check.

“Have you talked to the person at the house? What did they say? What is being done?” The answers: “Yes” “This is one of those things I can’t answer.” “Everything possible.” Please know, this issue is being investigated thoroughly. We have strong reason to believe what we do and at this point Maddox is no longer at the residence and could be anywhere and with someone who likely does not know he has a family desperately trying to find him, so awareness is the key.

And a quick shout out to The Dogington Post and I love Dachshunds for sharing Maddox.

Maddox needs some serious media attention!!

Wednesday, November 20, 2013


I need to ask everyone to take a deep breath as I have some very shocking news…

Please understand I am trying to give you as much info as I possibly can but I cannot say everything we know right now... I promise to share more when I can but this is all I can share at this time...

A few weeks ago, 3 amazing & very generous Team Maddox members paid out of their own pockets for Karin & her team of dogs (Cade, Ike & Drew) to come back to Oklahoma City/Edmond area to figure out where we lost Maddox. I had no idea this happened until a few days ago. I can’t even express in words how much I appreciate what these amazing ladies & friends have done for me & Maddox! They are so kind, loving & generous & I am honored to have them in my life... God truly sent me some angels!! I can’t give names but you ladies know who you are! Love you to the moon and back!

Based on tips we received: All 3 tracking dogs alerted Maddox’s scent was under a bush which is where he was probably sleeping. Then all 3 dogs took the same route to a gate and confirmed Maddox’s scent ended at a residence. All 3 dogs confirmed there was no trail away from the area & he did not walk away on his own. Cade even tracked Maddox to the back door and put his paw on the door saying Maddox’s scent went into the house!!! Those of you on this journey with me from the beginning will remember how AMAZING Cade is considering he tracked Maddox to the parking spot we parked in at Petco the day he went missing. =’’’((( Cade is truly talented & such a special furbaby!

We have reason to believe from there someone took him in and then he was re-homed either through a rescue or a friend. While he could have been re-homed in the area, we know in the rescue world, he could be transported anywhere in the United States within days. So we need your help now more than ever!!! We are not sure exactly when this happened, but it must be after we had a confirmed sighting when he was on the roam in June. We are asking everyone, if you have received a Min Pin within the last 6 months to please take them to get scanned because you could have my sweet baby boy and not even know it is him!

I am completely and utterly in shock by what has happened. I never thought Maddox would trust anyone because he is so skittish & stubborn. And because of how he is I have always had so much anxiety thinking about my baby being out there all alone and in the elements. I am NOT angry and am SO happy he is safe! I am SO happy he is not outside in the elements and hasn’t been for a few months now. This is just very shocking and not at all what I expected BUT it is what I have prayed for!! I believe my prayers are being answered and even though we have a new obstacle, we are just one step closer to finding my little boy!!!

This isn’t a time to bash or threaten anyone and I know everyone probably has a million questions.. Trust me so do I…but due to the sensitivity of the situation we are only sharing what we can.. And the most important part is just getting Maddox home so it is time to kick our awareness campaign into high gear!! We believe no harm was meant by what has occurred and wherever he is now, they probably have no idea it is Maddox. Not everyone in the country is aware of Maddox so we need to get awareness out all over the country!! Because like I have always said he is the LOVE of my LIFE, my little SOUL MATE, and I just want my baby home! I will do anything to be together with him again! I love him beyond words! We have been together for 8 years non-stop and that is a BOND nothing can break! I am hoping & praying somehow some way we can get awareness nationwide about what has happened and someone will realize they have my baby. I have faith in God that this will happen and I will get the chance to have my sweet baby boy back in my arms! Here are more pics of him

We are offering a very handsome reward & will give someone a wonderful Christmas with the reward OR they could donate this reward to their favorite charity. And getting my sweet baby back would be a wonderful Christmas present for my family! It will be my Christmas miracle to have my baby back in my arms! We could have our own Christmas story.. I can see it now in the headlines.. “Maddox cutest Min Pin in world gets lost on Christmas Eve but then gives his family a miracle the next year by coming home!” ;)))))

"Our Family is a circle of strength & love, with every birth & union it grows. Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger."

Through this nightmare my family has grown and it has grown to include all of you.. So many of you have been with me since the very beginning.... since that first night I was so frantic and I had no idea what to do so I started posting all over FB asking everyone to pray for my baby when I was rushing back from Dallas to Oklahoma.. It is hard to believe that was a little over 10 months ago.. I can't even explain how difficult this entire year has been for me.. So many say I don't know how you hold on?!?! Well trust me I am holding on by a thread.. ='''(((

So many call me a scammer, they ask if this is a joke.. Trust me this is not a joke and I would never scam anyone.. I don't know who in the world would make up something so terrible?? I guess there are people out there that do lie and make up terrible things but not me.. That is the thing that has always got me in trouble.. My brutal honestly.. I never hide behind anything..My Mom always said you are too nice and too honest.. I guess she was right.. I don't understand why people think I am scamming?? How in the world could I make up my sweet baby Maddox??? How in the world could I make up my love for this sweet little boy?? Where would I get the HUNDREDS of photos of the two of us together?? Why in the world would anyone want to make up something that is so awful that tears flow constantly??? I have lost so much weight, I have been physically ill when I can't breathe and fall to the floor, I can't sleep, I have no appetite,.. I have lost friends that don't understand.. There have been so many days where I don't know how to go on.. My pain is real... My love and bond with my sweet baby Maddox is so real it hurts.. I have had so many say the meanest and most cruel things to me.. I don't' know why anyone would want to endure this pain or make something like this up?!?! Because trust me as if the pain of losing the love of your life isn't enough, there are some that like to kick you when you are down, stab you right in the heart.. Well I guess that is what makes me stronger because I guess after time you already in so much pain nothing else can hurt as bad as you hurt already.. You start to get numb..

So I guess every crisis does make you stronger and even though some days are unbearable and I feel physically nauseous by what is going on in my life.. I will NEVER EVER give up on my sweet baby boy.. I will fight to get him back!!! I will do it for Maddox and my family! I love this little boy so much that I can't even put it into words.. He is the love of my life.. My little soul mate.. He inspires me.. He makes me stronger.. So yes he is worth it! He is worth all the obstacles.. He is worth all the pain.. He is worth whatever life throws at me!

I Love you Maddox and wherever you are, Mommy will always look for you and Mommy will never give up on you!! I can't wait to take you back to our favorite place.. the beach! I can't wait to give you hugs & kisses & never let you go! Maddox Miniature Pinscher Lost in Okc

I know I told you all I took a class with Missing Pet Partnership this summer.. I learned so much and started sharing some of it and then realized I hadn't shared everything I learned and today wanted to share this..

For some reason the past few days lots have been asking me, "Do you think someone has Maddox?" I have always said No because I know him. I know how skittish he is BUT then there is a huge part of me that has been hoping & praying he will reach out to someone to help him.. I hope & pray he will find someone that maybe looks like me that he trusts and let them help him.. I pray he is sleeping in a warm bed and not having to search for his own food. Especially with winter coming again, I don't want him to be out there in the cold... BUT I do also worry sometimes that someone will gain his trust and assume his fearful behavior is because he's been abused and that freaks me out...

If you read about lost dogs, you will read things like "Due to their cowering behavior, people assume lost dogs were abused, making them reluctant to give them back to the owner." Even if someone gained his trust, once they saw his behavior, I worry they won't care about this page, or how long I've looked and how much I've cried, they'll just assume I abused him and will refuse to say anything. In my class there was a story that someone had found a lost dog and they had a sign they drove by every single day but NEVER called because they thought the baby was abandoned or abused.. That scares me to death! Because all I want is my baby back!! I miss him more than anything in this world and not a day goes by that tears do not fall.. He is my heart, my soul, my everything and I am so lost without him! ='''(((

I just have to keep telling myself that if an animal lover took the time to gain his trust, if they see my posts and his website, they will know, no matter how he acts and no matter how beautiful and perfect he is, they will know his mommy & daddy want him back more than anything and will do anything to make it happen.

Below is a link to interesting info from MPP.. Please share!!

They have a campaign to "Think Lost, not Stray" because the biggest reason why missing pets are not reunited to their families is because people don't think Lost, they thing Stray which I admit I have been guilty of myself but being in my shoes now.. I always think LOST not STRAY because I know my baby is probably dirty, probably skinny, probably not looking like himself.. I just pray someone will take him to get scanned if they do find him and help him find his Mommy!

I know when he ran away on Christmas Eve, he was looking for me.. And I KNOW when he sees me again he will remember me.. We have that special bond that nothing will ever break.. When I came home from work every day, somehow he always knew my car, he knew my footsteps, or he just knew my smell but he always cried and jumped up and down and sprinted towards me.. I KNOW when he sees me agian that is what he will do so I just hope if someone finds him they give me that chance to prove our special bond.. ='''(((

For whatever reason Carrie Underwood's songs all keep reminding me of my life and Maddox.. Maybe I should have been listening to the words of her songs all along.. She is from Oklahoma, she does have a Min Pin she loves as much as I love Maddox Miniature Pinscher Lost in Okc..

for months, I admit I didn't listen to music, I didn't watch TV.. I have been in my own world and pretty much have just been staring in space.. I don't know but I drive home in silence, sit at home in silence, etc, etc.. But lately I have been listening to things again.. This song once again made me cry.. But it is true.. I need to let Jesus take the wheel... No matter what happens I will never give up on my baby boy.. I love him so much.. I miss him so much.. ='''-((((

Jesus, Take the Wheel

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with the baby in the backseat
Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline
It'd been a long hard year
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
she was going way too fast
Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was sooo scared
She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat sleeping like a rock
And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I'm sorry for the way
I've been living my life
I know I've got to change
So from now on tonight

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on

Ooh, Jesus take the wheel
Ooh, I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
From this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel
Ooh, take it, take it from me
Ooh ooh wah ah ooh ooh ooh

I wanted to share one of our most recent PR activities to spread awareness of Maddox.. We have some new Bring Maddox Home business cards!! I was thinking these would be perfect to keep spreading awareness with little involvement necessary.. I was thinking you can just keep them with you and every day life activities you can leave them places.. Here are the TOP 10 ways the Local team has been helping spread awareness of Maddox.. ;)) We still have plenty since I ordered 5,000 of them so if anyone in OKC area wants some to distribute please PM us and I will get you in touch with Jennifer who has them.

(1) At dinner, leave it with the check.. I was a waitress I kept all that stuff.
(2) At sonic leave it on the menu..
(3) At any other place if there is a bulletin board leave it there..
(4) Leave it with your hairstylist or seamstress or nail person, etc..
(5) Leave it with your Doctor or Vet
(6) If shopping at a retail store give it to the cashier that is checking you out
(7) Give it to your bank teller or lawyer or realtor or other business people
(8) While walking into the grocery store or Walmart slip it on a few cars..
(9) Give to any other people you come in contact with at a gas station, grocery store, fast food restaurant, etc, etc..
(10) Any other there creative ideas!

I am sure there are other ways to hand these out and I hope you will join me in doing this.. I hope you will continue to spread awareness about Maddox.. I know you all have your own lives and I know you can't put your life on hold for me & Maddox but thought this was a very easy way to help without having to put your life on hold and without having to spend your entire day away from your family.. I hate being so far away and wish I could move there but I can't but I will never give up on my baby boy.. ever!! He is too precious to me and he makes life worth living.. ='''(( xoxoxo

Thanks everyone for helping me out! It is much appreciated! Together we will bring my sweet baby boy home to Cali where he belongs!

HAPPY VETERANS DAY from Maddox & His Family!!

HAPPY VETERANS DAY from Maddox & his Family! We wanted to say THANK YOU to every VETERAN for the FREEDOM & for everything you do for us!! This world is a better place because of you!!!!!

Maddox's Great Grandpa on his Daddy's side and his Mommy's side were both Veterans that fought in one of the World Wars.. He never got to meet his Great Grandpa on his Mommy's side but he did meet his Great Grandpa on his Daddy's side and he fell in love with Maddox.. Once Christmas we went to Arkansas to visit him and the rest of the family went to Memphis but not Maddox's Grandpa.. He volunteered to stay home and watch Maddox.. Apparently they had the best day ever! Now both his Grandpa's are in Heaven and I know they are watching over my sweet baby boy & keeping him safe until God gets him back to his Mommy..

We are honored to have such amazing people in our family that helped give us our freedom! Happy Veterans Day to all!

Help Wanted!

Please share! We need all the help we can get to help bring Maddox home! Its clearly going to take an army! ='''-((((

Some of the things we need help with include: FB sharing, Making sure Maddox is on all lost pet websites, Putting up posters/flyers near sightings, checking petfinder daily, checking local newspapers daily, Help with compiling list of businesses to fax Flyers to, MakING sure flyers are up at Petco/Petsmarts/Other Local Pet Stores, Help with Fundraising, Help with Other ideas to keep spreading awareness, and of course Prayers Prayers & more Prayers!

I received this awhile ago and comment said "Maddox is this you?"... I swear this is maddox... I swear he is right under our noses and is so smart & stubborn that he just watches people from the bushes... We have a possible lead of a min pin that was spotted and apparently several were chasing him but we got no calls so we have no idea if it was maddox or not... We have had some local team maddox put flyers in the area... Ironically I found Bliss in a cemetery so maybe it is a sign? All the unknowns are killing me but I will never stop believing & hoping & praying for my happy day when my sweet baby boy is back in my arms! ="""((((

In traffic this evening and this song came on radio... Made me start sobbing & since I have no words lately will let Carrie Underwood speak for me to Maddox..

"See You Again"

Ohh Ohh Ohh
Said goodbye, turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone
Faded into the setting sun,
Slipped away
But I wont cry
Cause I know I'll never be lonely
For you are the stars to me,
You are the light I follow
I will See you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
Till I see you again
Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
I can hear those echoe's in the wind at night
Calling me back in time
Back to you
In a place far away
Where the water meets the sky
The thought of it makes me smile
You are my tomorrow
I will See you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
Till I see you again
Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking
But I stay strong and I hold on cause I know
I will see you again, ohhh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, yeah yeah
I will See you again, ohhh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me,
Till I see you again
Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh
Till I see you again,
Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh
Till I see you again,
Till I see you again
Said goodbye turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone.

I was sent this link last night to a story about 2 lost babies that were re-united with their families recently.. One was after a year and one was after 2 years! It brought so many tears... Lots of happy tears!!! I will never give up on my Maddox!!! Can't wait until this is me & my sweet baby boy whom I love to the moon & back a million times & would do anything just to have him back in my arms!!

Link to story..

I was looking for a picture to post and I saw this one and of course it made me cry.. I saw in this picture myself being SO happy & even have a glow on my face.. I admit that glow is not there today.. =''((( I'm so happy in this picture because I have Maddox in my arms! A picture says a thousand words..

He brightens even the darkest days.. He is my inspiration, my motivation, he makes me feel complete, he is my heart, my soul... ='''(((( I saw this quote and of course thought of my sweet little baby boy Maddox so thought I would share..

"If you hide, I'll seek for you.. If you're lost, I'll search for you. If you leave, I'll wait for you. If they try to take you away from me, I'll fight for you. Because I never want to lose someone I love. I love you so much it hurts not having you by my side with each passing day; I miss you, I need you, I want you."

I don't post alot of photos with Maddox & his Daddy but he LOVES his Daddy! You know when they say some fur babies look like their owners.. Well Maddox & his Daddy always made similar faces.. They both make me laugh.. Brandon and I have raised Maddox together since he was just a baby.. Even though I am the voice behind this page I assure you Brandon misses his "Little Buddy" just as much as I miss my Sweet Baby boy... ='''(((( I look at these pictures and I used to laugh but now I just cry but only because I miss that sweet face so much!! And I miss our family being together.. I miss the love of my life! I swear I have cried an ocean at this point and I don't know where the tears come from... I miss Maddox more than anything in this world.. He is the light of my life and my heart breaks more and more each day he is not with me.... I don't know why it is taking so long to find him.. I never imagined it would take this long.. People tell me every day to "never give up" and I promise you all.. You do not ever have to worry about me giving up on my little baby boy because giving up is not an option when it comes to my Maddox!! He is out there somewhere!! I just know it! It is like trying to find a needle in a haystack but he is out there and I will always keep searching and believing and will never give up on him!! No matter how long it takes!!!

Some of you know this and some don't but Maddox's Daddy is a comedian and he dreamed of being a Comedian since he was about 2 years old.. I say that because he has never given up on his dreams and neither of us will ever give up on our sweet baby boy either and we will never give up on this nightmare ending and turning into a miracle!!!

Brandon has good news and so wanted to share.. His newest album "A Useless Grown Man" dropped on iTunes today! He is hilarious and he does make me laugh even through the tears so if you like comedy and need to laugh like I do please check it out!

I am so proud of him!! I know Maddox is proud of his Daddy too! We just need to all be together so we can celebrate TOGETHER!!! And so Maddox & His Daddy can make silly faces TOGETHER!!! Please come home Maddox so we can be a family AGAIN! We LOVE you sweet baby boy!! ='''((((

Team Maddox is still working on keeping up awareness. I want to thank everyone here who reads, shares, helps by looking at every min pin they see ...and the comments! The beautiful, positive comments! For everything, thank you!! Eyes and awareness! Thank you!

We were mentioned on the news, recently. I'll take every mention Maddox Miniature Pinscher Lost in Okc can get, but of course, it brought some negative comments. It sometimes gets hard with the private messages or texts I get saying Maddox is a hoax and I'm just scamming people for money. But I know they're just unhappy, negative people who like to make others unhappy. I’d like to say I don't let it bother me at all, but to be honest, they do bring me down. But, not for long. On any given day, I can see here just how many people understand why I’m not giving up. =)))
