FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - To Junior Morgan his Pekingese-shih tzu mix named Rambo is part of the family.

So when Rambo didn’t come back to the family home on Southwest Eighth Street in Fort Lauderdale on Oct. 15, Morgan got concerned.

"He normally comes right back, give him 10 minutes, he's back. He'll go down to the street come right back go back inside," Morgan said about the dog that he bought as a gift for his daughter Arielle three years ago.

At one point, Morgan pulled up his surveillance cameras and found footage of Rambo running when a light blue car stops and a passenger seems to lure Rambo.

"Obviously if he's on the street, he's somewhere from here," Morgan said. Morgan has checked area shelters and there are not any signs of the dog.

"That fact that they're not doing the right steps, even if you didn't knock on the door, put him in a shelter," Morgan said.

"I'm not saying they stole the dog, off the bat, I don't know want to judge. I want my dog back, you know, because it’s for my daughter."

Anyone with information is asked to call Morgan at (954) 225-5097.
