This story is awful. Hopefully you will feel the need to share this with as many people as possible to help get the word out about Jackie and bring her back to her surviving family members. -Juli
Iowa Family searches for dog lost in snowy I-35 pile up.
PETS | December 27, 2012 | by: Marilyn Hughes
Jackie, a Jack Russell terrier mix, has been missing since her family was involved in a 30 car pile up during a snowstorm on December 20th. The accident on I-35 near Webster City, Iowa claimed the lives of one of her owners and two others.
Jackie’s owner 27-year-old Colby Duckett Bostick, pregnant with twins, was fatally injured after the family’s car was pushed beneath an 18-wheeler. Her husband Cody Bostick and their one-year-old son, Easton were also in the car. Cody and Easton were not injured.
The family dog, a brown and white Jack Russell Terrier mix, was lost in the accident- apparently having jumped out of the car.
And while the family grieves for Colby and the unborn babies, they want to find their dog. Cody holds a glimmer of hope that Jackie will be found and returned to them.
He worries about the little dog being out in the cold. It is not known if the dog suffered injuries in the accident.
Jackie might still be wandering near the highway or may have made it to a house. She also may have been picked up by travelers and taken in by hem or taken to a shelter in another area.
