It was like so fast. It was like a snatch and grab, Burnett said. It was upsetting.
On Sunday, Burnetts dog, Lox, was on a chain in her front yard on Leeshire Trail in Tucker long enough to allow him to relieve himself.
So I went in the house, like, for a split second I had just sat on the couch and I saw like, some kid walk into my yard, Burnett said. So I saw a silver car and a door closing and taking off. It happened so fast. Like, my heart dropped; it was like, really quick. I was like, Did they really just take my dog? So I ran in the house, I grabbed my keys, I jumped in my car and I went running around like, racing up that way.
But she did not find the car that sped off, nor did she find Lox. Burnett filed a police report and put up fliers all around her neighborhood, but still no Lox.
It really sucks because they didnt just take a dog, they took a little piece of me, Burnett said. A little piece, but a big piece.
Lox is also a big piece for Burnett’s roommate Ashley Parker and the other household dog, Louie.
Really be protective of your animals because they could be gone just like that, Parker said.
A painful lesson learned. Burnett just has a message for the thief.
He was really that awesome, so guess I dont blame you, but I do, Burnett said. Just bring him back.
Burnett said she is offering a cash reward for the safe return of her puppy.
