Dogaholics, a 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. Thursday. Three dogs were inside the van —a 1-year-old Great Dane Keith, and two 6-year-old German short-hair pointers Pappy and Stella.
The dogs were loaded into a transport van to come back home when the driver left with the engine running.
The dogs were found later Thursday night. The van was found abandoned in a field at Lawndale and North avenues.
