Ellie Alert: Soldier loses car and dog
A soldier awaiting deployment to Iraq this spring had his car stolen in Annapolis when he stopped for gas yesterday — with his puppy inside.
Army Sgt. Benjamin Terfehr, based at Ft. Mead, appeared on ABC2′s “Good Morning Maryland” today, issuing an appeal to get the dog back.
Terfehr, assigned to the military police, had taken Ellie, his German shorthaired pointer, to Quiet Waters Park. Afterwards, he stopped for gas, and ran inside the station to buy an energy drink. When he came out, he saw his car, a grey Jeep Cherokee, being driven away.
Terfehr said he got the brown and white dog a few months ago, after a broken engagement. He planned for the dog to stay at his mother’s house in Minnesota during his upcoming deployment.
“I could care less about the car, I just want the dog in the back,” Terfehr said.
“I want her to come home to.”
If you have any information about the car or dog, contact Terfehr at firstname.lastname@example.org
