The singer was left panicked on Saturday (30May15) when West Highland/Scottish terrier mix Hank disappeared from their beachside pad in Destin.

Moore and his family embarked on a search for the pooch, to no avail, and were heartbroken when they had to leave Destin so Moore could honour a tour date in Valdosta, Georgia.

Moore took to his social networking blogs to issue a desperate plea to fans in the area, asking them to keep an eye out for the beloved dog, writing, "To anyone in the Destin, FL area, I need your help please. The girls and I left our place today, after being down there for a couple weeks. Unfortunately, we had to leave without our dog, Hank. Needless to say, we are bummed out...

"I know this is a shot in the dark, but know the folks in the area are great people, and willing to help out where there is a need. In addition, I know we may have fans vacationing in the area. You would make three little girls and my wife very happy if you could provide any info concerning his whereabouts".

Word quickly spread and a day later, Moore learned his pet had been found, safe and sound.

He updated concerned fans online, writing, "I want to say thanks for all the well wishes and help for Hank. We got him! Thanks to the folks who retweeted, FB’d, etc… much appreciated!"

Moore also shared images of the good Samaritans who had taken care of Hank, simply captioning it, "His saviors."
