A man’s beloved service dog is missing after a carjacking earlier this month in Lakewood, Colorado. On the evening of March 4, Darren Schook’s 10-year-old service dog was taken, along with his SUV, from the parking lot of a Taco Bell off Simms Street and West Colfax.
Schook told KDVR News, “It’s the most miserable, hurting … it’s gut wrenching.” Schook’s vehicle has since been recovered. In a post on Schook’s Facebook page, Fight Breast Cancer, Not Pit Bulls, the update was shared on March 23:
The vehicle was found abandoned in Strauss, Kansas, but I was not in it. I am a service dog, and I am micro-chipped.
Mia seems to have vanished – and Schook is desperate for her return. On March 24, another update was posted on the Facebook page:
