BRADLEY BEACH - A Bradley Beach family is begging for the safe return of their 4-pound Pomeranian that was apparently dognapped.

Silvio Ciabattoni says the animal is a therapy dog for his wife Linda, who became paralyzed after a stroke last year. Linda Ciabattoni lost her ability to speak after her stroke and can only move one of her arms.

Silvio Ciabattoni says his wife finds comfort in petting the dog and calls the animal the one thing that will make her smile. He also says he'll offer a reward for the animal's safe return.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Bradley Beach Police.
