UPDATE:  A Rochester woman's dog that was stolen in downtown is back home.

Jennifer Sanneman posted an update late Wednesday night saying Mia, her maltese, was found 2.5 hours away from Rochester.


Sanneman tells ABC 6 News that as she was leaving to pick up Mia in Buffalo, MN she received a phone call at Essence Clinic from a woman asking if the dog had been found.  According to Sanneman, the person asked if they were going to prosecute and said they did not know how many days Mia had been running around so they took her. 

Sanneman said she and her husband met a man at a restaurant in Buffalo where he handed off Mia and left. He told her his son saw the news and called him, and that he kept repeating he was not a dog stealer, according to Sanneman.


A Rochester woman says her dog was stolen from a busy downtown business.

Jennifer Sanneman said two witnesses saw a woman, with brassy blonde hair and a white coat with fur on the top, scoop up her dog and walk down 2nd St.

The dog was taken Tuesday, January 9 around 3 p.m. outside of Essence Skin Care Clinic.
Sanneman said her dog Mia ran out of the clinic when the handicap doors were held open.
