Army Veteran's Therapy Dog Stolen Overnight on New Years

An Army veteran's therapy dog was stolen from his backyard overnight on New Years. The veteran and local authorities are asking for help finding the service dog and its puppy.

Marcus Taylor is an Army veteran who suffers with post-traumatic stress disorder. His therapy dog Kaycee, a bulldog-pitbull mix, is Taylor's closest companion who helps him deal with the effects of PTSD.

“Not being able to sleep at night, having nightmares and all, I always had my dog right there. She goes to the grocery store and everything,” said Taylor. “She’s all I’ve got.”

Along with the three-year old Kaycee, her 6-month old puppy, Lei, is also missing. Both dogs were in a locked kennel in Taylor's backyard when the Army veteran last saw them.

Service dog locked outside in kennel? I’m not sure of the validity of this story. Service dogs are usually ALWAYS with their humans! If I was blessed enough to have a service dog mine sure would stay WITH ME at ALL possible times.
