Virginia Beach police are investigating after a car containing a man's assistance dog was stolen.
Street performer Bobby Linville claims that when his truck was stolen from a parking lot, his eight-month-old Husky mix, Baby Girl Blue, was inside.
Linville struggles to live an ordinary life without Blue's support. Linville receives mental and physical support from Blue. He is somewhat autistic and suffers from seizures that Blue can predict. He also suffers from PTSD, so Blue is there to help him deal with that, too.
"I don't give a damn about my truck." I can buy another car because my boss has a lot of cars. A car is a penny a dozen, but you can't exchange my dog. Do you know what I mean when I say my dog was my right hand man? Like, my best friend, everything, I try not to cry as we talk, Linville told 10 On Your Side.
Fortunately, Baby Girl Blue was discovered by a Norfolk Police officer and sent to Norfolk Animal Care. They found out about the missing dog's story on WAVY News 10 and tracked down Linville to reunite the two.
Linville was delighted to have Blue back in his arms after she collapsed with glee at the sight of her human.
Linville is relieved to have his pet dog back, but is now homeless. Linville and Blue have been living in their van, but the man who took it is still wanted by the police.
Linville, on the other hand, is trying to save up money to buy a new truck.
