Blind girl’s therapy dog stolen
A blind, five-year-old girl’s therapy dog was apparently stolen from her front yard in Hutchinson, Kansas.
Millie, a pit bull trained as a therapy dog, was given to Andrea Taylor, who also has cerebral palsy, in March.
Less than a month later, someone in a white car stopped in front of the home, called the dog, and drove away with Millie, KSN reports.
The sheriff’s department is investigating.
“She absolutely loves Millie,” said Lana Taylor, Andrea’s mother. “She has always been a good night’s sleeper. She’s not sleeping at night, she’s crying all night long.”
The dog enabled Andrea to have more independence, her mother said, but since she was taken, Andrea spends a lot of time staring out the front window.
Anyone with any information with any information about Millie’s whereabouts is asked to call the Reno County Sheriff’s Department at 620-694-2735.
The family is offering a cash reward for Millie’s return
