NY grandma: Sick child asking when missing dog will come home

NEW YORK (AP) — A Staten Island family has been searching for a missing dog that’s helped a 5-year-old cope with a rare medical condition.

The Staten Island Advance says a lot of good Samaritans have also been looking for Charlie.missing dog 3

Linda Labetti says the little white Maltese disappeared from her home on Feb. 6. Her grandson, Roman, has endured more than 20 surgeries for a condition that limits his physical movement. Labetti says Roman keeps asking when Charlie’s coming back.

Charlie was wearing a blue collar with his name and the family’s phone number. A $1,000 reward is being offered for his return.
