ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

A Rocky Hill family has been happily reunited with their beloved dog after she was taken when their car was stolen Friday.

Family said they were able to locate their dog "Jazzy" and their vehicle in Waterbury thanks to a feature on one of their cell phones along with calls from people who recognized the car after the story aired on Eyewitness News.

Thankfully, the family says, "Jazzy" is just fine.

The Kaminsky family was beside themselves and understandably upset after “Jazzy” was taken when their car was stolen Friday morning.

Rocky Hill Police confirmed the theft happened just before 10 a.m. in broad daylight at the Fuel Plus gas station on Main Street.

Lisa Kaminsky said her husband Jay had stopped at the gas station, had gotten the wrong change back, and left the dog in the back seat with the car running to run back inside.

That’s when someone stole the car and their dog. The surveillance cameras weren’t working.

Lisa’s husband is a retired disabled veteran who has grown very attached to the dog.

“My husband is retired, and my kids are grown and that’s our baby. She’s everything to us she goes everywhere with us,” Lisa Kaminsky said. “It’s terrible, it’s devastating to us and my husband is at home I’ve never seen him cry, and he’s crying at home because he misses or dog so much.”

Jazzy is a 3-year-old black and white Boston Terrier that weighs 20 pounds.

She’s a diabetic and is in need of medication.

The car is a 2004 white Mazda tribute that has been entered into a search system for police nationwide.

Anyone with information should contact police at 860-258-2783.
