MEMPHIS, TN (AP) - Mid-southerners are opening eyes and wallets to help a Canadian family find their beloved dog.
Wednesday, police responded to a reported sighting of Dixie. It was a false alarm, but the call in to police shows that Mid-Southerners are on the lookout.
Dixie was stolen last week out of her owners' car while they eating dinner in a Whitehaven restaurant. The couple was in Memphis to celebrate Elvis Presley's birthday.
A reward for the terrier is already at $3,000 and climbing.
Wilson Air in Memphis offered to fly little Dixie to the family's home in Canada if she is ever found.
To donate to the fund to bring Dixie home, you can go to the family's Facebook page "Stolen Dog Dixie."
