Steve Rasnick spent three days hoping Miki, his four legged best friend, was safe and sound. Last month, the pet owner parked his truck in a church parking lot in Bellevue, Wash., and area thieves stole his truck and took the dog with them. Luckily, the pet was found days later by Good Samaritans who wanted to reunite the dog her worried owner.

When the vehicle was stolen, Rasnick grew worried sick about his pet. He told Kiro TV that those three days without his pet seemed  a lot longer.

A few days after the truck was stolen, it resurfaced stripped down and abandoned in a Renton parking lot, however, Miki was still missing.

When police officers tweeted community members asking for any information regarding the dog, an area resident searched Craigslist and found a “Found Dog” ad matching the dog’s description. Police were alerted and thanks to the tip, Rasnick and Miki were reunited.

  1. They didn’t just take the dog because it was in the vehicle! They stole they whole truck and stripped it! They didn’t want the dog or feel sorry for it. Sounds like they just dumped the dog and some good person found it. We don’t know why the dog was in the truck at the church, maybe he just ran in for a minute. Don’t judge! He obviously loves his dog very much!! Let’s just be thankful that he got his dog back!
