Greg Kelley released from jail on bond in child sex assault case

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PUP? Country music star Pat Green's pug missing in Jarrell


 Have you seen a missing pug near Jarrell?

Dog-lovers and fans of country music star Pat Green are launching a massive social media call to be on the lookout for "Ugg the Pug," who ran away Monday afternoon, in Williamson County.  

According to Green's assistant, Phil Crawford, the puppy -- a Christmas gift last year to Green’s middle-school son -- fled when Green stopped to fill up his pickup at a Chevron station near Jarrell just off Interstate 35. 

Green was traveling to Austin from Fort Worth.

"Pat chased after her as far as he could," Crawford said. "She just got freaked out and ran." 

 Green must be devastated? 

 "Oh yeah," Crawford said.

Social media posts over the past few months show Ugg traveling on Green's tour bus as he crisscrosses the region for concerts and other events. 

 On Monday, Green's wife, Kori, also was asking on Facebook for help to find Ugg.
