It happened Monday morning in the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood.
The Bullmastiff has been Matt Thoreen’s rock since his former dog passed away five months ago.
Monday morning, he said he started his car to go to work around 6 p.m. 6. His car is described as a dark blue 2006 Audi A6 with Wisconsin plates.
“Forgot my work boots, went inside, got the work boots. Thirty seconds, less than a minute, the car is gone, ”Thoreen said.
Inside, Kua was in her kennel. He said he also had tools and equipment worth thousands of dollars he uses for the job as a carpenter. He offers a $ 5,000 reward for her safe return, without asking questions.

“I know she’s a pretty desirable dog, she was expensive. I hate to think they would have done that for the dog,” he said.
His neighbor Linda Rodgers has lived in the area for 40 years and was disbelieving when she heard the news.
“We read about it every day and it keeps getting closer and closer,” Rodgers said. “But the heartache of having that puppy in there, I simply can not imagine.”
Thoreen said he does not care about the tool or the car, he just wants Kua back.
“Have a heart, man. I mean stealing a car is one thing, but taking a dog or a child or something, it’s something completely different, you know?” he said.
