My puppy is missing. His name is Cam. He was with me in the car last night, Saturday April 11 when I took the trash out. I went to 7-eleven on Edsall and Van Dorn after. There was a man asking for money outside and two other men came up. One went inside and the other stayed outside. When I came out, Cam was no longer in the car. I thought I locked my car but I must not have. This was about 10:30pm. Please help me find him. He’s a ShihTzu. He’s about 9 lbs and 1 year old. PLEASE SHARE. Thanks for your help.
