UPDATE: Service dog found after being reported stolen from Capitol Hill grocery store

UPDATE: The dog was found, the owner told KIRO 7 Tuesday afternoon. Additional details were not immediately available, but we'll post them here when we learn more.

As the owner was heading home from meeting with detectives, he received a call from someone in the University District who said they had a dog that looked like Layla. The owner met with the man, who said he found her on the street at night.

The man told the owner he'd seen a post on Facebook about the missing dog. The man kept her for nearly a month -- so it's suspected that Layla was set loose shortly after the Capitol Hill confrontation.

ORIGINAL TEXT: A Seattle man says his service dog was stolen after he was attacked in a Capitol Hill grocery store.

Jeffrey Almes' 9-year-old service dog Layla was stolen last month in a confrontation with two men that was captured on surveillance video.

Video from Hillcrest Market allegedly shows two men confronting Almes, punching him and walking away with Layla.

"I've had her 9 years of her life, I got her when she was 6 weeks old. I've had her since she was a puppy to be my service dog," Almes said.

Layla has helped Almes since he was in a car accident a decade ago that left him with PTSD any time he's in a vehicle. He's still searching and trying to get her back.

Seattle police detectives are looking for leads and are checking in with Almes periodically.

Almes is still hoping for Layla's safe return.
