"Someone stole my dog..."

This past Friday, the unthinkable happened to Jen Arendt and her family.  Her new puppy that is 2 months old and is a therapy dog for her special needs children, was stolen.  One of her kids was outside with her puppy when someone approached, grabbed the puppy, and got in a silver or grey 4-door sedan, and drove away.

Jen then went on social media and put out this desperate plea for help:
