MAYPEARL — A local family is on a desperate search to find their beloved dog who helped a member of the family through two bouts of cancer.

Hoss went missing on Sunday, July 26 near Arrowhead Rd between Waxahachie and Maypearl. He is a larger built five-year-old Blue Merle Australian Shepherd. He has one blue eye and one starburst eye (blue and brown mix). The family and neighbors describe him as very gentle and super sweet.

"The thought of him being lost, hurt or not being taken care of is just about unbearable. I pray someone is taking care of him and they just don't know who he belongs to," Shaena Campbell wrote on social media.

Hoss is owned by Shaena's daughter, Shadoh Lassatter, whom began battling cancer at the age of 19 and is now 25. Hoss became a driving force behind Lassatter's recovery, twice.

"She's had him since her 1st round with cancer and loves him so much. He even went to school (college) with her (they let her take him in class)," Campbell wrote.

If you see Hoss or know his whereabouts, call the family at 972-935-8647 or 214-354-1391.
