Aiken County woman searching for dog taken during car theft

Aiken County, SC (WFXG) -

An Aiken County woman is desperately searching for her dog after it was stolen along with her car.

It's been more than two weeks since Sandi Spires' daschund was taken.

"She's like my best friend; she's like my other half. Without her I don't even know who I am," Spires, said.

Spires says Ginger was taken when she made a brief stop at work.

"I just don't know who could do such a thing," said Spires.

She left her dog in the car when she went inside for a few minutes, when she came back out; both her car and dog were gone.

"When I saw it driving off I tried to chase it down but it was gone," Spires, said.

While her dog Ginger has been missing, Spires adopted another dog and her friend is letting her take care of a daschund named Gretel who she says looks a lot like her missing pup.

Spires says she's been working tirelessly to find Ginger because, "you can replace a car but you can't replace a dog."

From a Facebook page for Ginger to putting up fliers across the CSRA she's doing what she can to find her little dog. 

"She would sleep with me under the covers, we'd sleep nose to nose and then I'd wake up and she'd still be there. When I'd cry and stuff she'd be there to make me happy and smile and I miss her a lot," said Spires.

She's offering a $200 reward to anyone who finds Ginger.

"I just hope that they didn't do anything bad with her and I just really hope that I get her back," said Spires.

Until she has her best friend back, Spires says she won't stop looking for the dog she can't live without.

If you can help Spires get Ginger back, she wants you to call her at: 803 514 3607.
