Well, I am trying to help my very distraught friend out. 2 days ago her husband let their 3 dogs out, a Chihuahua, a Tea Cup Yorkie and a Yorkie. A quick trip to the potty and the Chihuahua (Antonio) is GONE.
They are both sick with worry and guilt. They live in Olmos Park. I have some phone pics of the little sweetie from last weekend.
If you see him or hear of some getting a great new dog, please let me know.

Oh, what a sweetie! Hopefully, someone will bring it back home... if there's anymore info that might help narrow the search, please do post it for the people here in SA.

So, folks, keep your eyes peeled for this little one... and offer up any info/tips to the OP that might be helpful in her search!

Good Luck!

The area he (Antonio) lives in is Mcullough and Thorain. I/we are not sure what happened, he either went through the fence or maybe someone took him. To be honest, they just want him back. There is a reward for his safe return to his Mom and Dad.
Thanks everyone.

Good luck finding your dog. Unfortunately, those dogs are very popular and are often stolen.

A friend also took out his dog to pottie and a truck drove by, picked up the dog and drove off.

Thanks, it is my friends dog. This is what I am afraid of. I am hoping if we get the word out, maybe someone will see him with his "new family" and let us know.
Anyone who has a pet knows they are part of the family.

I wouldn't be surprised if once the news of the reward gets out, they get their dog back. Times are getting tough, and this has been a much-used ploy in San Antonio to make some quick cash--stealing the dog and collecting on the reward money. It's so sick, really.

Good luck, I hope he comes home soon!

She told me last night when we were talking that some guy called her and said some really harsh things (alluding that he had the dog) than asked her how much it was worth and told her he would find her dog for that amount of money.
Just what she needed some jerk calling her and extorting money from her. But, like I said they just want their family back together.

I have heard about scams like this. They tell you they have the dog out of town somewhere and you need to wire some money to them so they can afford to bring you the dog back.
Be careful

Yeah, I doubt that would work with her, but I will warn her just in case. I hate to say but people always surprise me with the lengths they will go to to benefit from someone else's misfortune.

Some people are just disgusting. Hopefully whoever is doing that to her gets theirs in a very bad way..
I have lost a dog before and it is awful. Luckily we found mine several days later and she hasn't left ever since. I think her experience in the "real world" was enough to let her know just how cruel that world can be and definitely doesn't have as good of food..
