FOUND: Bethesda dog caught in car theft reunited with family


BETHESDA, Md. (WDVM) — After nearly two days, a Bethesda dog has been reunited with his family after their SUV was stolen from a parking lot with him still sitting inside.

Their locked, running SUV was stolen from the Westfield Montgomery Mall parking lot in Bethesda around 5:30 p.m. Monday afternoon. Unfortunately, the Greenberg family’s 10-year-old dog Joey was still sitting inside when someone took off with the car. The family says they reported the incident to police.

The family’s Facebook post from Wednesday afternoon says Joey was recognized after someone saw a virtual poster of him online. A video in the post shows the Greenbergs picking Joey up from the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center in Derwood on Wednesday.

The family used social media to spread the word, posting on Twitter, Facebook and TikTok in an effort to get Joey’s face in front of thousands.


We love and miss him so much. If you see him bring to a local shelter or email in bio #lostdog #help #fyp #montgomerycounty #westfieldmall #reward
