NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Brooklyn woman is distraught after a car thief took off with her Audi which had her Chihuahua puppy still inside.
Eleni Pappas said she was just out of the car for a minute with the key in the ignition while she paid for gas at the BP station on Avenue U in Mill Basin when someone got in the car and took off with her 11-month-old pup Leo inside, 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern reported.READ MORE: New York Weather: CBS2’s 11/28 Sunday Morning Forecast
“I chased him out of the parking lot, a little further down and at that time I was so hysterical I didn’t even know what was going on,” she said.
Pappas said Leo means the world to her and life has been a whirl wind since he disappeared Friday night.
“I haven’t slept, I’ve been running around putting up flyers everywhere — almost 500 flyers,” she said.
Pappas said she doesn’t care about her 2010 Audi, she just wants her dog back safely.
Anyone with information on Leo’s whereabouts is urged to contact Pappas through a Facebook page she set up.
