BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Baltimore man is pleading for the public to help him find his dog Rosie, who was stolen from his Woodberry home.
Gabe Gallico is offering a $2,500 reward for Rosie’s recovery.
According to police, officers responded to the 3500 block of Clipper Road on Nov. 11 around 11:27 a.m. for a report of a burglary. Once they got there, they learned burglars took a PlayStation and the Boston Terrier.
“I don’t even care who did it,” Gallico said. “I just want my dog back. I mean, she is my heart and soul.”
“I can’t describe the feeling. “Like my heart just pulled out of my chest,” Gallico added.
Police believe the intruders got into the home by breaking the rear window of the home.
Sean Stewart, Gallico’s neighbor, said he heard a commotion outside followed by what sounded like a knock.
“I went out into the alley and that’s when I saw the window was broken and I immediately called 911,” Stewart said.
Rosie is 13-pounds and black and white. She has a black spot on her head and has a black collar with a silver pendant. She is microchipped.
“We love her, Rosie is our baby,” Gallico said.
Gallico said he’ll do whatever it takes to get Rosie back home.
“To steal somebody’s pet, that’s in my mind like taking a family member out of somebody’s family, that’s just a line you don’t cross,” Gallico said.
