FOLSOM (CBS13) – A woman’s luxury SUV was stolen, but it’s what was inside the vehicle that had her worried.
Sarah Kensky says her family hadn’t had Bear for long. The 110-pound yellow lab was just rescued from a shelter three months ago, but quickly became a part of the family.
“We just lost a dog last year and I can’t imagine losing another one,” said Sarah.
Bear was last seen Tuesday afternoon in the family car parked in front of the Folsom Whole Foods. Katie Kensky had just returned from a short vacation and decided to do a little grocery shopping.
“I missed him so much I brought him with me to the supermarket,” she said.
But when she returned from shopping, her car was missing and so was her dog.
“We don’t care about the car or the people who took the car,” said Sarah. “Whoever has him, we just want him back.,”
And get him back they did. Their tears of sorrow turned to tears of joy thanks to an alert CBS13 viewer saw our story and recognized her SUV and the dog within a mile of where they were stolen.
“There was the car and the dog was in the apartment. It was just unbelievable. We still can’t believe we have him and my car. The car is secondary, of course,” said Sarah.
Bear is just fine after having to spending the night in the rain and the day with a nice couple.
Police still don’t know who’s responsible for the theft.
