Last Friday, a senior dog disappeared during a home invasion in north Austin, Texas.
According to the dog's owner, Stephanie, their 13-year-old bull terrier, "Rica," has been missing ever since someone broke into their home which is located in the Georgian Acres neighborhood in Austin.
Rica weighs approximately 50 pounds and requires medication for seizures; she eats a special food.
According to Stephanie, there was a possible sighting of Rica on Tuesday morning near Watson and Anderson and also, on Saturday, at Justin and Woodrow.
Friends, family and co-workers have been canvassing the area, hoping to find Rica and bring her back home to safety, and the local police have been notified about her disappearance.
Stephanie's heart is broken over Rica's disappearance, she shared:
"She's been my best friend since she was six weeks old. She is part of me. My husband and I don't want this to be our last memory of her. Please help in any way you can to get her back home."
