SAN FRANCISCO — A California couple and their Yorkshire terrier are together again after the dog was stolen last week in San Francisco, authorities said.
According to KGO-TV, Jacqueline Zavala Lee and Refugio Zavala, both of Stockton, were celebrating their 12th anniversary in San Francisco on Thursday night and briefly left their 10-year-old Yorkshire terrier, Leo, in their parked car.
”When they returned, they found that an unknown suspect had broken a window and stolen Leo, who was in a soft, nylon-style dog carrier,” San Francisco police said in a Facebook post. ”The suspect(s) also stole a suitcase.”
Zavala Lee was devastated.
”My heart just plummeted,” she told KGO. ”I literally feel like a part of my heart is gone. I’m worried about him.”
The owners’ reunion with their dog was captured in a heartwarming video.
Police continue to investigate the case and have not arrested any suspects, KGO reported.
