Photo Gallery | A month later, dog with medical condition still missing
It’s been one month, today, since a furry family member with a medical condition went missing.
“He’s out there with somebody,” said pet owner Donna Lifchez.
On Jan. 4, between 5-7 p.m., Donna said her 8-year-old male Shih Tzu by the name of Mushu went missing from her Lexington home.
“We have done an expensive search,” said Donna . “The moment we found out Mushu was missing.”
According to Donna, she believes someone may have taken Mushu from her yard and is worried because he requires special care.
“He can’t have dried or crunchy foods,” said Donna.
Donna says Mushu’s jawbone was fractured and then repaired in October.
“He has steel plates and screws in his lower jawbone” said Donna.
According to Donna, one of her biggest fears is that someone may have found Mushu and fed him dried or crunchy food.
“If they feed him the wrong type of food, it will re-injure his jaw,” Donna added.
Donna says Mushu can easily be identified by a veterinarian.
“He has a tiny scar under his right jawbone,” said Donna.
The pet owner still believes it’s possible that Mushu may have been taken to a shelter and then adopted out.
“ I just want people to look and listen, to see if they noticed anyone who may have gotten a white or beige adult male Shih Tzu after January 4,” said Donna.
A $1000 reward is being offered for the return of Mushu, no questions asked.
