Service dog for Milwaukee paralyzed child missing: Family pleads for return

See also

Xzavier Davis-Bilbo, 9, depends on his one-year-old pit bull named ShiShi to help him with his daily routine, but the faithful dog has been missing since Monday, and the family thinks the dog was stolen reports wisn.com.

Recently Xzavier and his mother, Valetta Bradford were guests on the Katie Couric show where the paralyzed little boy and his mother continue to campaign for laws against texting while driving. In October 2010, as Xzavier was holding his sister's hand on the way to the park, a young woman texting while driving hit the child with her car. At just five-years-old, the child was dragged for 20 feet and will be paralyzed for the rest of his life.

Valetta states their dog has been missing since Tuesday and feels the therapy dog was stolen by someone they know. The family has had the dog since she was six-weeks-old:

"She's very routine, she takes Xzavier to the bus stop in the morning, she's home to greet Xzavier in the afternoon."

ShiShi is invaluable in Xzavier's everyday care and warns Valetta if the child needs help with his breathing tube.

Valetta sent out this plea to the public:

'Just return her, just return her, she belongs home with us, with Xzavier. She is a part of this life, she is a part of this family."

If anyone has any information on ShiShi's location, please contact the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission by calling (414)-649-8640. Please help this child find his dog.
