According to police, the suspect petted the six-week-old Husky and Golden Retriever mix that approached him, grabbed the dog, walked back to his vehicle and drove away.

"She was a really nice dog," said the pet's owner Luis Gutierrez to TV-station KPIX. "I know I'm going to have a great time with her, but she's gone now, so I'm asking you guys to help."

Police said the suspect drove a black Mercedes-Benz SUV which had yellow windshield wipers. The dog is described as having gray fur with a white tail that was sporting a pink collar with the name "Nyla" engraved on it.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call police at (408) 277-8900.
