UPDATED FEBRUARY 18: Found this morning!

An upstate dog is missing, and the owner is afraid his dog has been stolen, Facebook: Pets Lost and Found of Upstate SC reported February 17.

Gary Amon Dowis turned his dog, a sweet Pomeranian named Tater Tot, our for a potty break around 9 p.m. Monday night. Tater Tot went to the corner of the property, which is fenced, and began barking. By the time his owner made it outside, Tater Tot was missing.

This occurred in the White Horse Road area of Greenville near Piedmont Highway. The area is also known as the Lakeside community.

There are no holes in the fence, and Gary could hear Tater Tot barking as his dog was going down the road. The problem is, Tater Tot could be heard faster than he could run down the road. This leads Gary to believe his dog may have been stolen.

Stealing dogs has become big business in upstate South Carolina, where dogs are snatched out of their own yard. Many times the missing dog will turn up for sale on CraigsList. Some thieves even wait for a reward to be posted, then return the missing pet to collect the reward.

Gary is asking the social media community to share Tater Tot with friends, especially those in upstate South Carolina. Anyone with information can contact Gary at the information listed below.
