UPDATE at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 25:
A family spokesperson says, "She was about four miles away from where she went missing at the farm the owner rides at! One of people [sic] that work there say her [sic] run through the gates about 20 minutes ago!"

"Boki is home. She traveled all night until now and found her way back to the barn that Lindsey works from. The news has been incredible. Many tears. Truly amazing how dogs can do this. It’s incredible. Thank you [WPTV] for everything. It’s a Christmas miracle," says Jackie Robinson.


A Wellington woman is distraught this Christmas as she desperately searches for her dog who was scared off by fireworks on Christmas Eve. The dog's name is Boki and she is a two-year-old Jack Russell.

Her owner says she ran away from their home along Stroller Way in the Equestrian Club Neighborhood around 11 p.m. Boki has a microchip so her owner is hoping someone will find her and return her before Christmas is over.
