Pilfered Pup Reunited with Family
|Welcome home, buddy!|
A woman brought Bodhi, formerly known as James, to the shelter at about 2 p.m. yesterday, claiming she bought the dog outside a Safeway store in the Mission for $200. Apparently, the woman's mother saw the puppy on the news and realized the new addition to their family was the missing dog.
Now, animal shelter officials are looking for the couple who snatched the puppy. Video surveillance at the shelter recoded footage of a Latino couple in their mid-30s snatching the pup. The couple had a young boy with them, according to news reports.
The man is described as 5-foot-6, heavyset, with spiky black hair and a short beard. The woman is roughly 5-feet-6 inches tall and thin. She has dark hair. They were driving an older white sedan, possibly a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry.
Anyone with information is asked to call the SF SPCA at 554-3029.
