Hennessy, a 1-year-old Yorkie, was stolen Wednesday night while his owner took him for a walk.

Farmington Hills — The family of a dog stolen last month is offering a $1,000 reward for its return.

The Yorkie-Maltese mix was brazenly taken at about 6:45 p.m. May 29 when it was being walked by its owner near Lochmoor and Queensboro streets in a subdivision near Middle Belt between Northwestern Highway and 14 Mile in Farmington Hills.

Two young men jumped out of a car, picked up the owner's two dogs and tried to flee with them while a woman drove the car, said police.

The owner was able to save one dog but the other, a year-old brown male pup named Hennessy, was swept away in the vehicle, said police. The owner was dragged by the car for a short distance as he tried to retrieve Hennessy.

The reward is being offered to anyone providing information that leads to the recovery of the dog.

The car was a silver subcompact, said police.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Farmington Hills Police Department at (248) 871-2610.
