CATHEDRAL CITY - Monday night a service dog is presumed stolen as he would never leave his owner's side.
Dominic Cumo is a nine year old boy diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease. His companion, Kipper, and medical dog of three years went missing at 7:30 p.m. on Avenida Juarez in Cathedral City. Kipper has saved Dominic's life three times.
A police report was filed and police went door to door in the neighborhood looking for Kipper. Kipper is blind in one eye and is a white Shih-tzu with clipped short hair.
