There is some good news for a B.C. man whose car was stolen with his dog inside five days ago.

On Aug. 26, Coquitlam RCMP said a vehicle had been stolen in the 500 block of Clarke Road. But even more distressing, the owner’s 11-year-old husky cross, Kali, was inside the vehicle.

Eric Mills said his elderly father had gone into the Bosley’s pet store to exchange some pet food when the vehicle, with Kali in the back, was taken.

Mills said his dad did not care about the car, which is covered by insurance, but he was desperate to get Kali back.

With the help of the public, officers were able to reunite Kali with her owner and recover the stolen Subaru.
