A Riverside County family whose dog disappeared after they dropped him off at a Norco grooming company, has alerted authorities and started a social media campaign to find their missing pet.
Andrea and Anthony Baerga said they dropped off two dogs - Bodie and QTip - at the Doggy Paws grooming business on Thursday. When the Baergas returned to pick them up, the groomer only had QTip and couldn't find Bodie.
The family started up a Facebook page for the dog that had about 100 friends Sunday night.
A Riverside County sheriff's spokesman confirmed the incident had been reported, but told NBC4 the incident was being treated as a civil matter, not a criminal one.
