A Fayette County couple is now offering a reward for the safe return of their two poodles they believe were stolen over the weekend from their truck in a Gwinnett County parking lot.

“We’re both obviously devastated,” said Jim Wingo, who with his wife owns the poodles, Layla and Lulu. “We are now offering a reward of $1,500.”

Layla and Lulu were stolen from the Wingos’ vehicle while the couple was dining in Norcross, Wingo said. Wingo said he and his wife were having a congratulatory dinner with their son at an Asian buffet-style restaurant on Jimmy Carter Boulevard, and they left the two dogs in their car. When they returned an hour later, Wingo said the passenger’s side window had been shattered and Layla and Lulu were gone — no other valuables were stolen.

“We didn’t feel like they were in any danger at all when we left them in the car,” Wingo said.

Layla and Lulu are both female mini poodles, Wingo said. Layla has black fur, and Lulu has white fur with a long tail that ends in a prominent 90-degree angle.

Wingo said he hopes the Christmas spirit will help bring his dogs back home.

Anyone with information on the missing poodles has been asked to contact 404-438-9662.
