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.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Friday Morning Snow Could Slow Your Commute

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.READ MORE: 16-Year-Old Boy, 27-Year-Old Xavier Guzman Charged In Murder Of 8-Year-Old Melissa Ortega
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.MORE NEWS: View Live Radar
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.
