DENVER -- Saturday is supposed to be the happiest day of Isiah Hinojosa's life. He's getting married. But it just won't be the same without his best friend there.

Romeo, an English bulldog, got out of Hinojosa's yard near South Newton Street and Morrison Road in south Denver about three weeks ago.

Hinojosa said he is heartbroken and is doing everything he can to find the 8-month-old puppy.

Hinojosa said he has put up more than 2,000 fliers around the Westwood neighborhood.



Hinojosa said he has checked all the local shelters and pounds, put ads on Craigslist, had the microchip company alert local veterinarians and consulted two separate psychics.

Both psychics said an "old man" has the dog and doesn't want to return him, Hinojosa's sister, Kandice, said. According to at least one of the psychics, the man who has Romeo lives in a white house with two front windows.

"He is so heartbroken, [I've] never seen him cry so much and hurt so much," Kandice Hinojosa said. "He misses his baby."

Now his sister is hoping someone will return Romeo in time for her brother's big day.

"Romeo was gonna be in the wedding and I'm trying everything I can to help get him back for his wedding," Kandice said.

Isiah said Romeo was going to ride down the aisle in a wagon with the couple's young daughter.

"Please, please if you can help us that would be amazing," Kandice said.
