Sebastian the Newfoundland is a go-getter. Once he knows what he wants he will stop at nothing to get it. In this case, Sebastian's goal is to get a copious amounts of tummy tickles from his owner.

In the video, the dog's mom dishes out a few belly pats, but then goes back to staring off into the distance. This simply won't do for Sebastian.

A District of Columbia woman has spent more than $35,000 in a year-long search for her beloved missing dog.

Janet Mihalyfi, 39, of Georgetown has hired psychics and private investigators, posted thousands of fliers, installed cameras in the woods and put out dog food at spots where the Rottweiler mix has reportedly been spotted.

Mihalyfi lost 5-year-old Havoc on Nov. 9, 2013, after she took him and her other dog off their leashes during a run in a wooded area. Just then, a deer bolted by and both dogs gave chase.

She hasn't seen Havoc since.

Adopt Me! Vaughn the Pointer Mix Is a People Pup

It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, as the month comes to a close, meet Vaughn, a 1-year-old pointer mix who came to the SPCA of Texas in Dallas on Oct. 11.

The 52-lb. pup was given up because his previous owners didn't have proper housing for him. He lived outside 24/7, which was torture for him because "he's a guy who wants to be with his people," reads the dog's biography.

"If you're looking for a loving and laid-back guy, Vaughn is your boy," Stephanie Knight, communications specialist at the SPCA of Texas, added.

The playful and energetic pooch is great with kids and other dogs, even though he sometimes has a tendency to be quite shy when you first try to pet him. But give him a chance and he'll show you his sweet side. "He's a sweetheart who loves kisses and lap cuddles," his bio says. "He is quiet and fun, and he'll be a great dog for someone."
