MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The reward fund to find a dog stolen near Graceland is growing by the day.

Someone stole Dixie last week while her owners were inside a restaurant.

The couple has now returned home to Canada. They say the story has picked up media attention there too after Terry Travis has been interviewed by three Canadian stations.

Travis is hearing from people wanting to help.

"Obviously in my mind, I know the majority of people in Memphis are excellent and they have reached out to us," said Terry Travis. "A lot of people have and that's appreciated. But yeah, its still pretty hard to get away from the fact that somebody broke into my truck and stole by dog."

A Facebook page has been set up to share pictures of Dixie.

Groups are now offering a total of $3,000 to find the dog.

To donate, you can contact Terry Travis on the "Stolen Dog Dixie" Facebook page or email her at terry572002@yahoo.com.
