'We just want her back' | Maryland woman says dog stolen from car

Amanda Weston says her dog was stolen out of her car in the parking lot of Orchard Center

SILVER SPRING, Md. — A Maryland dog owner is begging for the safe return of her pup Chloe.

Amanda Weston says Chloe is a Shih Tzu mix, and is her everything. 

"I have no kids, that's my child," Weston said.

She says the shih tzu mix was stolen out of her parked car, just after 8 a.m. on Saturday, October 22 in the Target parking lot at Orchard Center on Cherry Hill Road in Silver Spring.

Weston told WUSA9 she left the dog in her car, because she was only planning to run in and out quickly. 

"I literally was in there for a couple of minutes" she said.

When she returned to her car, she said she found the back window broken and glass all over the back seat.

"I automatically thought like, 'oh my God. Don't tell me they took my dog. Don't tell me they took my child," Weston said.

She said her dog Chloe was gone. The thieves also took her bag which she had her anxiety medicine and driver's license, Weston said. Right now, she said she and her family are just focused on getting Chloe back.

"We just want her back. We don't care about nothing else, like for real for real"

Weston said police responded to the store. They believe whoever stole Chloe was in a gray or silver SUV. 

If you know where Chloe is or have any information, Weston asks that you call her at (708) 551-5303.
