A yellow lab named Maru when missing after the family car was stolen yesterday in Studio City.
The owner and his wife were out in their dark blue Honda Odyssey. Because of the heat, the owner left the air conditioning running when he stepped inside to children's clothing store. The dog was asleep. According to the report, the man was gone less than 30 seconds and the car was parked about 20 feet from the store.
The dog and the mini van were stolen. The car theft has been reported.
Maru is a large yellow lab. She is microchipped and very friendly. If found, please contact Lost and Found Paws in Los Angeles.
