Update on Harmony: The reward money for her safe return is now up to $ 2000.00 (thanks to Auto Werkstatt Porche in Hermosa Beach who added another $ 400 to the reward pot) MANHATTAN BEACH (CBS) — The reward amount has increased for the safe return of a three-month-old special needs puppy named “Harmony,” who was stolen from a family vehicle Tuesday in Manhattan Beach. Harmony, a Boxer-American Bulldog mix was adopted just before Christmas by a family with four sons. “It is just a dog to some people,” says Patrick Thomasson. “But to us, it was an instant part of our family.”
Thomasson had been visiting the rescue puppy for weeks, and asked his wife Shayla to get the dog for him as a Christmas gift. He asked me maybe ten times,” said Shayla. “He is really in love with her.” The Thomassons had parked their car outside the Manhattan Village Shopping Center on Tuesday morning. Thieves jimmied a car door lock and made off with an iPad gift card and the dog. “It kind of felt like the world dropped,” says Shayla.
The deaf puppy also had a canine companion named Bella, a terrier who could lead Harmony around. Bella was left behind by the robbers, and the family says she is depressed without Harmony. The Thomasson family is now offering a reward of $ 1600 for Harmony’s safe return.
“Whoever has her, just give her back,” says Patrick. “We won’t ask any questions.”
