Man’s Stolen Service Dog Faints in His Arms Upon Being Reunited, Overwhelmed with Emotion.
A man has been reunited with his dog after she’d been stolen along with his van. Bobby Linville relies on his 8-month-old Husky-mix service dog, Baby Girl Blue, as she alerts him to oncoming seizures and helps him cope with his PTSD. When she was taken away from him, his world was turned upside down.
“I don’t care about my van. My boss owns a car lot, I can get another vehicle. A vehicle is a dime a dozen, but my dog, you can’t replace that. My dog was my right-hand man or woman, you know what I’m saying? Like, my best friend, my everything, I’m trying not to cry as we speak,” Linville told 10 On Your Side reporter Tamara Scott.
After a week apart, the two were reunited thanks to the Norfolk Animal Care Center. Staff saw the WAVY News 10’s report and realized the dog had been brought into the shelter by a Norfolk Police Officer. And before returning Baby Girl Blue to Bobby, the NACC updated the dog’s rabies shots and microchipped her!
All is well new, and Bobby even set up a GoFundMe to try to get a new van.
