The search for a San Antonio dog is getting a boost from a Texas favorite. Luby's is promising a month of free mac and cheese as a reward for the safe return of Miko, an 8-year-old Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix.

 

Dog owner Yasmin Rodriguez Jaibat has been searching for her furry "soulmate" since Friday, November 19 when he went missing from a yard on Sweetbriar Avenue, between Culebra and Bandera. She started a social media campaign, pleading for anyone with information on her dog to come forward. Jaibat offered a $250 reward that's now getting a layer of cheese thanks to Luby's.

 

The Texas cafeteria-style restaurant, which has a San Antonio fan base spanning generations, is offering a month-long mac and cheese feast for anyone who comes through with information to get Miko home. Jaibait, a self-described Luby's "stan" explains that the connection isn't so random. 

 

About two weeks ago, she got an Instagram follow from Luby's. Being a fan, the moment was exciting for Jaibat. She says she quipped on her Instagram Story feature about the moment, which she treated like a badge of honor. The jokes opened up a dialogue with the restaurant via direct messaging. Jaibat says she's seen an increased online presence for the restaurant, which she assumes is a result of new owner from Chicago stepping in and "saving" Luby's from the point of no return after months of teetering on the brink.

 

Whatever the case, after a few days of jokes and interactions, Jaibat considered Luby's an online buddy she could reach out to. When Miko went missing, she started building a social media phone tree of local businesses that could help. Feliz Modern, the Pearl novelty boutique, shared the news. Then she remembered Luby's. Jaibat said they'd "absolutely" help and reposted Miko's flyer with the mac and cheese offer.

"I was just so touched, I didn't need any of that," the owners says of the cheesy reward.

 

Unfortunately, Jaibat has not received any leads on Miko. She says her dog is "off leash" and has lived with her from Germany to New York City to Austin and has never strayed away.

 

While Jaibat is anxiously awaiting any news on her dog, she says the showing of support from San Antonio is making her feel at home. She says she's lived away from the city for 10 years and admits, she didn't want to come back to a place where she previously felt she didn't fit in.

 

"The circumstance is horrible, but I have kept faith because of San Antonians reposting and offering advice. People I don't know are walking around to look for him. Local businesses are posting my flyer without wanting anything in return," she says. "The experience of trying to to find Miko has really showed me how big of a heart San Antonio has."

 

Anyone with information on Miko can call or text 210-831-0446.
