The owner says a man was keeping tabs on the dog before he eventually stole him.



"We didn't know he was outside and by the time we realized it was too late so that's when we checked the cameras. It made us all cry," said David Palomino.

Rollie is black with brown paws and white on his chest.

The San Jose Police Department is investigating.
