A suburban family is offering a reward for the safe return of their family dog and her puppies that were stolen from a Crystal Lake kennel.

Lucy Lu and her puppies were taken from the Koehmstedt Kennel last Thursday. The West Highland Terrier belongs to the Graff family. They say they're heartbroken because Lucy Lu is a living memory of their teenage son who died suddenly in 2009, just a few months after the dog was purchased.

The kennel's owner says a door to the business had been left unlocked and the thieves apparently knew where the puppies were.
