The search continues for a dog, stolen from a Lexington paraplegic man.
Terry Smith just got his dog, China, back in February. She was quarantined after chewing off his toes.
Despite that, Smith says China is one of his best friends, but after coming home from a hospital stay on Monday, he says the dog was nowhere to be found.
"I opened the door and she wasn't there to greet me like she always is," said Smith. "At that point, I knew she was gone."
Smith is concerned someone may use his dog to fight. "That has always been my concern, I don't understand it, but people do it all the time," said Smith.
Smith says China basically looks the same, only bigger. She weighs about 50 pounds. If you believe you've seen China you are asked to contact your local police department or animal shelter.
Smith is offering a reward for the dog's safe return.
