Matt and Ashley Kossoff are desperately pleading with the public for help after their 9-year old miniature Dachshund, Milo, was stolen in a carjacking incident in Fulton County, Georgia.
This happened when the couple was out of town while Milo was under the care of a dog sitter.
In a footage from a local surveillance camera, the dog sitter can be seen waiting by a DVD kiosk at a CVS parking lot.
Within a matter of seconds, the tailing thief runs and takes control of the dog sitter’s Mercedes-Benz, which he had left running.
The thief speeds away with Milo still inside, while the dog sitter chases the car unsuccessfully.
The Kossoffs, who consider Milo their “firstborn”, have been relentlessly searching for their beloved pooch ever since. They have offered a reward of $5,000 for any information that helps Milo’s safe return home.
Let’s get this news out and help the family find their precious dog before it’s too late!
