GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Greensboro family says they were burglarized just before Thanksgiving. While it all took place, their dog was either stolen or ran off. The devastated family is now working to get the dog back.

”I don’t even have words to describe what she means to me,” said Jessie Trump, the dog’s owner. “I’ve had her for nine years.”

Jessie Trump says her family was heading out of town for Thanksgiving when they stopped at the Hooters in Greensboro to get a quick bite to eat for dinner. They left their suitcases, and dog, Graci, inside their locked truck. When they returned their belongings, which included some weapons, were taken. Little Graci was gone.

”I don’t know if they actually took her, too, or if she got scared and jumped out and ran,” Trump said.

Graci is a black 9-year-old Pomeranian poodle mix with a small scar on her back knee.

“She goes with me everywhere,” said Trump. “Anything I do, kayaking, tubing down a river, she goes everywhere with me.”

Trump is devastated and hopes someone will bring Graci home.

”I don’t care about catching somebody,” she said. “I just want her to be back here.”

Thanks to donations from family and friends, the Trumps are offering a $3,000 reward for Graci’s return. Anyone with information is asked to call the family at (336) 215-9316.
