    Cross-posted from another forum-

    Friday, July 1, Steve Karr's new charcoal gray Ford F250 truck was
    stolen
    from the Wal-Mart parking lot in Rockwall, TX. It has a 3 hole Burns
    stainless steel dog box in the back. His black field-trial lab female dog,
    Maggie, was in the box. If you see this truck, please call 911 and
    have
    them
    check on the dog! Then contact Steve Karr at 214-681-0570.

    At this time, I do not know whether the truck had dealer tags or a
    regular
    license.

    Maggie is a three year old black female lab. She is a finer built
    field
    type lab weighing about 70 to 75 pounds with slightly wavy hair on
    her
    back.
    She has been running in the amateur and open stakes at field trials.
    She is
    microchipped.

    Please forward this email to as many lists and people as might be
    able
    to
    help, especially in the Dallas area. I will try to send on additional
    information as I get it - especially the license number of the truck.

    What a great way to reach as many people as possible.
    I had my truck stolen & it was dreadful enough without my dog inside.

    If the dog box was unlocked, they probably dumped the dog & the truck is on it's way to Mexico. :mad:

    I forwarded this on to a large genealogy group I belong to - they can yell at me later that it has nothing to do with genealogy :p
    But we have many in TX, so I thought it might help -
    Keep us posted

    Heather- thanks for forwarding the post.
    I forwarded the post from thr rr-folk forum, which is a Rhodesian Ridgeback forum. Jacquelyn Taylor cross posted it from another forum but I am not sure where it originated.

    The internet has been very instrumental in helping many pet owners retrieve lost/stolen pets. Just yesterday I posted about a possible Ridgeback in a shelter in Ohio which needed rescueing. That post was forwarded to many rescue forums and it was a non-Ridgeback rescue volunteer who picked the dog up early this morning. It is great how people can communicate pet needs to others in often distant locales.

    Thanks again for all your interest- hopefully the dog, at least, will be recovered safely.

    Just praying the truck will be located and the dog will be found. Just tears the heart out of you when you care so much for your animals, and you know it is in the dog box, especially in these high temps.

    I hope the dog is found safe and sound also but I have to wonder where the owner's head is when he takes an animal, in a box, during the SUMMER in a HOT state while he STOPS at store??? For the sake of his animals, may he never do that again. During our latest heat wave/low rain time, I've taken to carrying water and a dish in my car in case I come across an animal (2 or 4 legged) that is in dire need of water.
