Amarillo-TX--The kids at the Maverick Boys and Girls Club had a special Thanksgiving surprise.

Their Puppy was found. It had been a week to the day when the pug mix puppy was let outside and went missing, leaving the Maverick kids wondering what happened to their puppy.

Dexter was brought back to the Maverick Boys and Girls Club and the kids went wild.

"They were yelling and so happy he was found" says Program Assistant Rebekah Howard.

"A man called when he saw a flyer and recognized the dog he had found him right out side you expect animals to be in a residential area it makes sense, he brought him back."

The kids take turns playing with him. Kind of a good behavior reward. Some children didn't think they would ever see him again.

"He is so cute and lovable I didn't think he would come back"says Mercy Rameriz, Maverick Client.

Another boy wanted to cry when he saw him.

"I almost started crying because I really missed him"says Nick Jasper.

With the day before Thanksgiving the kids couldn't have been more thankful for their mascots return.
