It doesn’t get much lower than this. A very brave little boy, Ryan Morgan, who has been fighting cancer for four years is now fighting to get his puppy back.

The Dachshund puppy was given to Ryan for his 10th birthday. Two weeks ago thieves broke into his Barrow County (GA) home and stole the puppy.

Even worse is that detectives think the culprits know Ryan Morgan and are aware that he is sick, according to Channel 11 Alive News in Atlanta.

Ryan was diagnosed with neuroblastoma four years ago and has been battling the illness since then, the station reported.

For his 10th birthday in July, his parents bought him a miniature dachshund to cheer him up. He named her Dixie.

“Whenever I went to the hospital or something, I would always think of her, and it would make me happier,” Ryan told the station. “I really like her. She’s cute.”

This is a despicable act, the offenders need to arrested and punished accordingly. Let’s help bring Ryan’s puppy home. Anyone with any information about the case is urged to call the Barrow County Sheriff’s Department at (770) 307-3084.
