CONNECTICUT –An autistic 11-year-old boy is devastated after his therapy dog was stolen from his aunt’s home in Connecticut.

The boy’s mother Haydee Peralta said her son’s therapy dog, an 8-pound Yorkie named Aimie, accidentally got out of her sister’s house in February.

Security cameras outside the home captured two women in a dark-colored Nissan Maxima snatching the dog, according to Peralta.

Peralta says her son was non-verbal until he got his beloved dog.

The mother says the dog was wearing her collar and tags at the time she disappeared.

      Why, Frank? Because folk’s hearts go out to kids, in this case especially a kid with autism, whose world largely revolves around his therapy dog, which gives him a higher quality of life; also, most rational people are against animal cruelty and mistreatment as well.

      Sorry that you needed to ask – would have thought it was obvious.

    The boy should have hopped in the car and chased the thief. He’s an excellent driver. He’s and excellent driver.

    People will steal and sell anything for drug money.
    What goes around, comes around. They will pay sooner or later.
