HERRICK, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Police officers were able to find the suspects that had custody of the support puppy that was stolen from a car in Herrick Thursday night.

The family is grateful to have their dog back safe and sound and would like to remind others in the community to be vigilant.

Since the suspects did not come forward with the dog on their own, the $2,000 reward was nullified.

The Fischer family is devastated after their support dog, named Juno, was stolen out of their car Thursday night. Juno is a support dog for one of the family members that is currently battling cancer.

The Fischer family is offering a $2,000 reward for the puppy, no questions asked. They say they are not looking to press charges, they just want to do whatever it takes to get their puppy back.

The Fischers say they do not believe the puppy escaped on its own, as Juno was in a crate, and a wallet was also taken from the car.
