Cancer Survivor's Service Dog Goes Missing — Maria Menounos Has Joined The Search To Find Her & You Can Help Too!
As dog lovers ourselves, we hate to hear a sad story like this.
This one is about a sweet grey pit bull-terrier named Lucy, who is more than meets the eye.
She's not only the door greeter at Westside Pet Clinic in Santa Monica, California where her owner (and mom!) Dr. Antje Hinz is the medical director, but she also helps out there to keep other animals calm during their visits — just check out how sweet she is with a cute kitten patient (above).
More than that however, she's held a much bigger role in Dr. Hinz's life. Lucy is also Hinz's registered emotional support service dog who helped her during her 5-year aggressive breast cancer battle. She calls Lucy her Buddha and purpose to keep going.
Unfortunately, while Hinz was on a trip to Germany with her boyfriend and Lucy's other owner, Finneus Egan, Lucy went missing from her petsitter's home in Venice, California on September 7.
We can't imagine going through that heartbreaking situation, but while Lucy was strong for her owner during her cancer battle, Lucy's family is being strong for her and staying determined to bring her home safely.
You can check out all they've been doing to find her through a Facebook page dedicated to the search HERE. And you can also find more info on their Instagram for Lucy HERE. They want to get the word out on their missing dog, and hope that the right person will see this information and help.
They've even received help from E! News' Maria Menounos, who is a client and friend of Hinz. She's been helping with the search through her own social media, as well as hitting the pavement with Lucy's owners to reach out to locals for any possible leads:
Tori Spelling must be absolutely frantic right now!
Last Thursday, the reality star revealed that her beloved dog, Mitzi, went missing from her Calabasas home on September 15. To make matters worse the pup needs medication, so finding her sooner than later is paramount.

EXCLUSIVE! Lisa Vanderpump Explains Why She Teamed Up With Sharon Osbourne To Take A Stand Against The Yulin Dog Festival — Watch Their Haunting PSA HERE!
The two animal enthusiasts teamed up to produce a PSA about the terrible event in China that celebrates the brutalization and slaughter of defenseless dogs so they can be eaten for pleasure.
In the announcement, the Real Housewives star calls viewers to action, inviting them to participate in a march to the Chinese consulate in Los Angeles on World Animal Day — October 4.
We've learned EXCLUSIVELY that Lisa filmed the haunting video (above) in her home on the day before her birthday. She also included the Osbourne matriarch because they've been friends for a really long time, and Sharon shares Lisa's passion for their furry friends.
Miz Vanderpump has opened up to us in the past about the horrible holiday, but now she's explaining why she decided to organize the march:
"When I saw the horrific images of dogs being tortured and slaughtered for their meat my heart got heavy. Right then and there I said to myself, I'm going to do everything I can to put an end to this so called 'festival.' This is what I want on my epitaph. I want it to say this woman was instrumental in ending the barbaric torture of these poor creatures."
We're really proud of Lisa and Sharon for standing up against this terrible tradition, and we really hope they are able to make a difference.
If you're in the area on October 4, head to MacArthur Park at 10 a.m. to join the movement.

#Spotlight: Woman Who Lost Her Eye In A Shooting Rescues Dog Who Also Lost His Eye In An Attack! Feels!
Cue the tissues! You're definitely going to need them!
In June, Maria Williamson — a server from Mobile, Alabama — was shot in the face when four men attempted to steal her car.
According to the 26-year-old:
"The bullet went through my nose, and damaged my right eye, over the course of the next week I had two surgeries, one of them to remove my right eye."
The suspects — who authorities believe to be teens — have yet to be caught.
While she was recovering, a dog in her vicinity named Bear suffered a similar injury when he was attacked by bigger dog, causing his eye to pop out of its socket.
The puppy was just four-weeks-old.
Bear was taken to the Animal Rescue Foundation, a nonprofit organization that fosters animals and tries to find them a home.
After the cute pup had surgery to remove his damaged eye, staff members of the charity started a crowdfunding page to help pay for his medical fees. Williamson's boyfriend saw the post and immediately told Maria.
After realizing they shared a similar story, she acted quickly in order to ensure Bear had a home.
