Benton Harbor, MI - Adriana Perez says someone took her Husky, Aspen, from her family's yard. She also says the thief left a note explaining why.
Perez says the dog-napper said she was abusing Aspen by leaving him in a house in the backyard.
The note said dogs are pack animals that need to be around other dogs and humans.
It also said dogs get lonely in a pen.
Perez says the letter made her angry and she read part of it.
"To leave a letter, it was a slap in the face."
"I wanted to write to you and explain to you why we took your dog. Sincerely, someone who loves all dogs."
Perez says county animal control officials had been by to check on Aspen over the course of two years but didn't find any neglect or abuse.
