Tom Finley is a familiar face in the Chicago Loop, and so was his beloved blond husky/terrier mix, Reba.
More than a week ago, Finley said his dog was stolen when he went inside a McDonald’s and left her outside. When he came back, his 12-year-old dog with a limp was missing.
Ever since her disappearance, Finley has been asking for help from everyone and anyone to help find Reba. He passes out fliers and asks if they have seen his dog.
Finley said: “She is truly my best friend and my family. I know she’s ready to come home to me.”
He believes that someone took his dog because the person believed that Finley couldn’t care for her. He currently does have an apartment, but often, he is homeless.
Despite his circumstances, many people who work in the Loop and see Finley and Reba all the time said he is a loving owner and takes good care of her. They frequently see Finley toting Reba around the city in a trailer connected to his bicycle.
“I’ve seen him down here with Reba all the time,” one woman said. “I’m at near tears over this. Whoever took her is breaking his heart.”
The Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago has even stepped in to help Finley find Reba. They are offering Reba a lifetime of veterinary care, so whoever has Reba will know that she will be taken care of when she is returned to Finley.
Finley promised that he would never let Reba out of his sight again if the two were reunited.
He said that Reba has a big fluffy bed waiting for her at home.
