MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An Edina man and his puppy have been reunited after the dog was believed taken from his car.
Kim Robson offered a $2,500 reward for the return of Pepsi, his 3-month-old German Shorthair.
Pepsi was in the back seat of Robson’s car with the window cracked while Robson visited a friend at the Yorktown Continental Apartments in Edina. When he returned, the alarm was blaring and Pepsi was gone.
A witness said he heard a dog whining, then a car alarm. When he looked out the window, he saw a woman holding the puppy. Robson said he thinks the woman may have been worried about Pepsi, thinking she wasn’t safe in the back seat.
On Friday, an anonymous woman contacted Richfield Police, saying she heard a puppy scratching at her door that morning.
Richfield Police contacted officers in Edina, and the dog was brought to an animal shelter, where Robson was able to be reunited.
The shelter waived fees, since Pepsi had been stolen.
