(KTVI) -The attorney who represents the family that owns Phineas says the dog has been stolen. You may recall Phineas has been in the custody of a vet in Salem, Missouri after he allegedly bit a child more than a year ago.
A court hearing regarding the matter is scheduled for this Thursday, but Phineas is missing.
The attorney says he and his clients fear for the dog's safety.
Phineas has been in custody in Salem since last summer after allegedly biting a child. The dog's supporters say evidence proves the dog's teeth do not match the alleged bite mark.
