Stolen dog Pekingese-Chihuahua mix

The stories of animals that are stolen always seem to get to me because rarely they stolen animal returns home to his or her owner. It is a heartbreaking experience when your beloved pet is lost or stolen.

In BURLINGTON COUNTY, N.J., a woman parked her SUV with her 7-month-old Pekingese-Chihuahua mix, “Princess,” inside as she ran in to a mini-mart. When the woman came out her SUV and dog Princess were gone.

The surveillance camera at the store caught a man getting into her car and driving off. Police found her Jeep in Camden, but her dog was still missing. But someone apparently found her, shivering and crying, on Friday and turned her over to the animal shelter.

The Almost Home animal shelter said someone turned the dog over to them Friday. The news did not report how the shelter knew who the dog belonged to, but thank goodness they did!

Little Princess was one of the lucky dogs who made it back home!

I am sure the car thief had no idea he was stealing not only a car, but a car and a dog! No arrests have been made in the car theft as of Jan. 20, 08.
