Members of the community are rallying around a Johnson City family that lost its Yorkshire Terrier last week.
Members of the community are rallying around a Johnson City family that lost its Yorkshire Terrier last week. Supporters held a vigil yesterday at the Parkway Plaza in Vestal to bring attention to the search for 7-year-old Yorkie Spike.

She jumped from her owner's truck last Monday afternoon while he was at the Hoffman Car Wash on the Parkway. Spike's owners, La Nissa and Corey Dyman say the dog was reportedly spotted along the Parkway as late as last Wednesday. La Nissa says complete strangers have been aiding in the search and even offering money for a reward.

Yesterday during the vigil, Vestal resident and owner of Upstate Shredding, Adam Weitsman, pledged $1,000 toward a reward.

"Another person that doesn't know us that's just done so much for us to help put out the word to help find our dog. We know that dogs are lost all the time and this just means a lot to us. We're really looking forward to getting her home so that the opportunity comes for us to pay it forward to another family and their lost dog," said Dyman.

Vigil participants also donated cash and pet supplies to be given to local animal shelters. La Nissa says Spike is a very loving dog who isn't accustomed to being outdoors. You can get more information on the search by visiting the Facebook page Bring Spike Home.
