“We went back out after about 20 minutes and they were gone,” Suzann said.

Suzanne her husband and daughter searched for the two dogs for the next three hours with no success. When they went into the backyard, the couple found the back gate open.

Since then, Suzann and Mike friends and family have put flyers with pictures of Tanque and Daisey Mae all over town, throughout Runnels County and in San Angelo and Abilene.

“We’ve gotten some reports that kids have seen them,” Suzann said Monday. “I also had a woman call from San Angelo to say she had seen them.”

The Rileys filed a report with the Ballinger Police Department on the missing pure bred dogs which are valued at up to $2,500 each.

Suzann said that Tanque is sick with heart worms and that she has been treating him every 15 days with medication.

“We have been so lucky to have had him this long – one reason we want him home is so he can be with us in he end,” Suzann said.
