Mary Perron tried to be a good Samaritan, stopping to help a group of people who were having car problems, but ended up stranded in a Winnipeg parking lot after her vehicle was stolen.

But it's not the car that she's worried about, it's her two-year-old dog Mikki, who was inside.

"I'm just devastated. I'm worried they took the car and got rid of her," Perron, 64, said, trying to speak clearly but pausing to catch her breath from sobs.

"It's so cold out, I'm scared that the dog, that they'd let her out on a highway or something and she's freezing. I'm just so worried about the dog, I don't care about the car."
