Attacking a female combat vet and then stealing her dog- there is a special place in hell for scumbags like this.  We need to find these two scumbags and not only hold them accountable but enforce some military justice upon them.

Local LEO are concerned it was the breed of the dog that attracted the thugs, Pit Bulls are heavily used in dog fighting pits.

An Iraq War veteran in Concord, New Hampshire said she was attacked by a man who then stole her service dog.

Ashley McCall said she had just put her 3-year-old pit bull, Jax, in her car after taking him for a walk. She was about to go run some errands when she said a man approached her and started asking her questions about Jax.

“He starts asking me questions about what kind of dog he was, what his name was and then wanted to see the dog. And I told him, I really need to get going,” said McCall.

McCall said the man then reached for her car’s door handle and opened it. McCall said she shut the door and he shoved her onto the ground. The suspect then grabbed Jax and got into an awaiting silver Ford Focus. McCall said the man then threw Jax’s service vest and leash out of the car before taking off, Fox 25 Boston reported.

“I’m screaming at him, this is my dog, what are you doing, you can’t do this! He just takes off,” said McCall.

Meanwhile, next door at the florist shop, the owner, Fred Keach,  who used to be in law enforcement, noticed that same car had been sitting in this parking lot all morning.  He thought it was suspicious so approached the two.

“The explanation that they were waiting for someone didn’t make sense, in this day and age when everyone has a cell phone, you can pick up the phone and call, and ask them where they are.  So from the beginning it looked as some form of ambush that was about to happen at some point.”

When the alleged ambush happened, Keach called police with a plate number, type of car and description of the two males.

The loss left McCall both “extremely sad” and “amazed at the lengths people will go to,” she told Fox News in a text on Saturday night.

“He is a provider of unconditional love,” she said in another text. “Jax helps calm me when anxious.  Could really use him now.”

McCall’s husband Christopher McCall said Jax is trained to help his wife with anxiety and depression.

The couple is offering a $500 reward for Jax’s return.

Service dog organizations across the United States provide military veterans, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a service dog that helps the military vet with their PTSD.

Service dog programs have been proven to help veterans with PTSD cope successfully with the symptoms of PTSD, including depression, nightmares and social anxiety. Intensive Trauma Resiliency Program incorporates service dogs trained for unique anxiety alert and nightmare interruption aids.

Puppy Jake Foundation selects only the best, most intelligent breeds to place with veterans: Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds. Each Puppy Jake Foundation service dog then receives socialization, behavior training and instruction from our own trainers. Dogs are trained to perform tasks such as opening doors, retrieving items, ‘block’, ‘check’ and much more.  Once paired with a wounded veteran, the service dogs are trained additional skills, specific to the needs of the individual.
