Anti-Cruelty Society Joins Search For Stolen Dog

WOODRIDGE, Ill. (WBBM) — The Anti-Cruelty Society is stepping in to try to find a stolen dog – and reunite him with his family in Woodridge.

As WBBM Newsradio 780’s Steve Miller reports, it has been almost a week since Remy, the 3 1/2-year-old shih-tzu-poodle mix, was taken by burglars from his family’s home in Woodridge – cage and all.

Police can’t figure out why. Remy isn’t purebred and isn’t worth a lot for resale; he was adopted from an out-of-state home.

Now, the Anti-Cruelty Society is getting involved. President Dr. Robyn Barbiers says the agency will be a go-between to appeal to the thieves’ better angels.

“Bring it to us, no questions asked, and we will get the dog reunited with the family,” Barbiers said.

Three and a half years ago, the Anti-Cruelty Society did the same thing to try to get Reba the dog back after she was stolen from her owner in the Loop. The tactic worked.

Besides Remy, the Woodridge thief or thieves took some electronics, some liquor and two china cups, Woodridge police Sgt. Tom Stefanson said earlier this week.

    Just give them back their dog, that’s worse than taking anything else from their home. It’s like stealing their child. I’m glad the anti-cruelty society is getting involved. I can’t imagine if someone stole one of my dogs.

    Please return the dog to it’s owners. I would go crazy if that happened to my Chihuahua.

    Pls give Remy back to his family!! It’s just devastating to have a family member taken away like that… Remy must be so scared too.

    Probably being used as a target dog for dog fights.

  • SLW

    There are plenty of dogs at shelters, waiting for a home. Why steal a family’s beloved pet? How cruel!

  • Kim

    I can only imagine what the family is going through, not knowing where their pet is. Let’s hope that this story has a happy ending and that Remy gets back home soon.
