Blind girl’s missing therapy dog returns
No one is sure how she got there, but a legally blind 5-year-old girl’s therapy dog showed up on her family’s front porch in Kansas, two weeks after she was stolen.
According to KSN, Andrea Taylor, who has cerebral palsy, couldn’t stop smiling.
Millie, a pit bull trained to serve Andrea as a therapy dog, was found outside the family’s home in Hutchinson by Andrea’s father around 3:30 a.m.
Andrea’s mother said her daughter woke up, came out to the living room and upon seeing her dog said, ’”There her is. It’s my Millie.”
Millie had been missing for two weeks. She was seen jumping into a white car in front of the family’s Hutchinson home. A reward of $450 was being offered for her return.
Andrea’s mother, Lana Taylor, believes pressure from the media and the Reno County Sheriff’s Department led whoever stole the dog to have a change of heart.
Millie had scrapes and scabs around her face, neck, and belly, leading Taylor to believe she might have been taken by dogfighters.
Hutchinson police say they are continuing to investigate the case.
Taylor said the first thing Millie did upon her return was to go to Andrea’s room: “She went right to Andrea’s bed, put her paw up on the bed, and sat there …”
