MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- Milford Police are trying to figure out who stole a little poodle from her owner.
Who dognapped a mini white poodle inside a parked car on the first level of a garage at the Post Mall last Saturday?
"I noticed that my seat was pushed all the way back and my dog was missing, including I had a little bed in the back," said Betty Barriga.
Owner Betty Barriga wants her trusted companion Delilah back home with her. The five-year-old has a distinct pink spot on her nose.
"She's only 12 pounds, 12 inches high," said Barriga.
Signs of missing Delilah are posted along the Milford Green.
"I'm a responsible dog owner, I know you probably fell in love with her like I did," said Barriga. "I want her back, she has left a big void in my life, I miss her."
It's not often Milford Police issue a stolen dog alert. But the case they say is unique.
"The dog was taken out of a vehicle so technically it's a theft," said Officer Jeffrey Nielsen, Milford Police Department. "There's a caring owner and the dog has some attributes to it that benefits the public being a therapy dog."
Delilah and Betty volunteer at Griffin Hospital. Anyone with information about Delilah, call Milford Police.
If you have Delilah, Betty also wants you to know, dogs are like people, they miss their owners too.
