1 min read

San Francisco police on Friday called the public for help on finding a Yorkshire Terrier who was stolen from a victim’s vehicle Thursday night. 

In a tweet, officials for the San Francisco Police Department showed a photo of 10-year-old Leo, who was stolen along with a suitcase from the vehicle. The Yorkshire Terrier is said to have minor health issues. 

According to the police report, the victims were in town to celebrate their 12th anniversary. They have parked their Lexxus sedan on North Point Street near Powell Street, leaving Leo inside the vehicle. 

The couple said they found the car with a broken window and Leo gone by the time they returned. The Yorkshire Terrier was in a soft, nylon-style dog carrier when it was taken. 

“I felt like a part of my heart just fell in my stomach. And I thought, ‘He must be so scared. Where is he? Are they taking care of him?’” owner Jacqueline Zavala-Lee told CBS News. “I didn’t even notice the luggage was missing at first. I just started running around and screaming for Leo.”

The couple is currently offering $1,000 for Leo’s safe return.
