CONCORD, Calif. (KTLA) -- A dognapped puppy is still missing after being stolen from a health care worker helping victims of the coronavirus.
Police say the 11-week-old Malinois puppy named "Max" was taken from the owner’s home in Concord on Saturday.
The puppy's owner is an emergency-room nurse at a local hospital. She was at work when it happened. Her family only had Max for two weeks when he was stolen from his kennel by what appeared to be a man on a bike.
“I was heartbroken,” she said. “Max was helping us start over as a family. I had just moved and it was my kids and me. We had started a new chapter, and Max was an early birthday present for my son.
“I’m still holding on to hope," she said. "My family coworkers and friends are super supportive and have help raised reward money.”
