How would you feel when you find out that your dog is stolen? Well, it happened to a woman on Saturday morning while her prize-winning dog and her minivan were stolen from the South St. Paul hotel where she was staying. She is now asking the public to help get her dog back.
Michelle Cramblett Baker was in town for the Land O’Lakes Kennel Club Dog Show. Jasper, the dog was in the kennel at the back of her 2013 silver Town and Country minivan when the vehicle was stolen.
The van had Illinois license plate AH26052 during the time of the theft, and pink and purple tie-dyed seat covers. Baker said there were dog decals at the back of the license plate.
Baker also informed that Jasper responds to his name and is very friendly. She also announced a good cash reward for anyone who can provide her with the information of Jasper.
Here is the post shared by her:

She also implores that whoever is behind stealing her dog, requests them to leave him in a warm place like a police station, firehouse, or a vet clinic. Baker said that the thief can keep her purse and van as long as they return the missing dog.
