VANCOUVER -- A man battling stage 4 liver cancer is hoping someone can help find his lost dog.

Friends say the boxer/pit bull mix Trouble ran away from his owner s home near Southeast 151st Avenue and Southeast 1st Street in Vancouver over the 4th of July weekend.

Trouble is more than just a dog for owner James, who's had the dog for nine years, said his friend Vanessa Bowers.

He's had him forever and they go everywhere together, and he just ended up missing, Bowers said.

She said a woman found the dog, but mistakenly gave him away on Craigslist a couple days later. Now they're trying to find out where the dog ended up.
