A service dog was recently stolen from a homeless man in Houston, Texas, and members of the community are helping with the search to bring him back to his rightful owner. According to Friday’s ABC 13 News, the German shepherd mix was taken from his owner, Indigo Andrews, a few days ago.
Shadow has been with Andrews since he was just a pup – the dog helps his disabled owner get around. Now, Andrews is trying to make do with out his constant companion – he told ABC 13, “I have no way to get up sometimes, and he’s the only one that can help me to get up. He’s a very special animal.”
On Saturday, a Facebook user posted images of Shadow to the Helping Houston’s Homeless group with a request:
Please share and spread the word! Shadow is a service dog and was stolen Dec. 6 around 9:30 pm in NW Houston on Hwy 529 and Hwy 6 . Shadow is micro-chipped. There is a reward if found.
Andrews believes that whoever took his dog thought that they were helping…but he is adamant that Shadow is better off with him. Anyone with information is asked to reach out to Crossroads Animal Clinic at 281-859-3050.
