CHICAGO — Three dogs are missing after a Dogaholics transport van was stolen Thursday afternoon.

The grooming and boarding company located at Southport and Addison said their van was stolen from behind in an alley near the store at around 4:50 p.m.

The missing dogs are named 1-year-old Great Dane Keith, and two 6-year-old German short-hair pointers Pappy and Stella.

“Please keep those dogs safe, bring them back to us, we will ask no questions we just want them back to the family” father Ron Levitt said.

The dogs were loaded into a transport van to come back home when the driver left with the engine running.

“Our transport stepped out of the van to go grab some keys he was gone for like 30 seconds to a minute when he came back somebody jumped in the van and drove off with the dogs in the back,” manager Ben Montgomery said.

Dogaholics said the missing van is a white Nissan NV 2500 cargo van with the license plate number 1781495B

The Levitts are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the return of the dogs.
