Hello, and thanks for coming to us with your question. Your dog is considered property and she stole the property. You need to fill out a complaint at the police department for the theft of your dog.
You could go through small claims court, but never get paid. If she is charged with theft, part of the sentence will be that she repays you for the price of the dog.
Please ask any follow up questions you might have.
