Dogs Found After Van They Were Inside Was Stolen From Lake View Grooming Business

Dogs that were inside a van that was stolen from an alley in the city’s Lake View neighborhood were located safely on Thursday, the owner of the business said.

The van belongs to the company Dogaholics, a grooming and boarding service located in the 3600 block of North Southport Avenue.

According to police, a man parked the van in an alley behind the facility Thursday afternoon, with three dogs inside. The keys were left in the vehicle’s ignition, and the doors were locked, according to police.

A person then stole the van, and the employee at the business saw the van fleeing the scene.

The three dogs, a black and white Great Dane, a brown short-haired pointer and a black short-haired pointer, were inside the van when it was stolen.

Anyone with information in the case is encouraged to call Chicago police.

The owner said it was working with the department to reunite Pappy, Stella, and Keith with their families.
