UNION CITY - A Union City dog is missing after his owners dropped him off for a routine trip to the groomer.

Tania Parker says she brought her 3-year-old Maltese pup named Pearly to BowWowCare in Union City for a grooming. She says an hour and a half later she received a call that Pearly was gone.

BowWowCare Owner Adrian Gonzalez says the facility is secure and there's no way that dogs can escape the property. Gonzalez thinks Pearly might have been stolen.

The humane society is checking with local vets to see if any dogs matching Pearly's description have come in.
