That's horrible.  I know I'd be totally devastated if someone took Tar from me.

Somehow I still feel compelled to point out the dog described would be an ESA rather than a SD.  That doesn't make the crime any less serious, but something in me rankles at inaccuracy in reporting.

Terrible story.  Even if the dog was only a pet to be attacked and have your dog stolen would be devastating.  I am amazed at how he was still smiling though, unless that is one of his stress responses.  I would have been a blubbering idiot.  I hope he gets his dog back soon.
