GREENVILLE, PITT COUNTY -

A Fourth of July break-in at a Greenville kennel led to the disappearance of two dogs. One dog was found dead in the back yard of a home off of 10th Street in Greenville on Wednesday. The owners believe the dog, named Sir Lancelot (pictured), was hit by a car.

The owners' second dog, Billabong, was found safe on Friday.

The break-in happened at Helen's Grooming World and Pet Motel Thursday night. According to the kennel owner's daughter, a burglar busted through the gate and kicked in a kennel housing the two black labs.

No suspects have been identified in the break-in.
