Dog taken on camera by 2 men returned

Posted: Updated:

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A little dog, picked up after wandering away from a South Florida business has been found.

The little Pomeranian is safe and sound, Wednesday, and back with its owner, Tameika Stephens.

After 7News aired the story about the dog, the day before he was found, the Stephens family received several tips from people who thought they had spotted the dog after she knocked on some doors and made some phone calls. The dog was then returned to Stephens, Wednesday morning.

"You look shook up. Why you look shook up?" said Stephens as she held Lucky back in her arms.

Lucky's a little shaken because he has been gone since Monday. "I'm happy he's back. That's all that matters. I'm not even mad," said Stephens.

Monday evening, Stephens left work at her family's Northwest Miami-Dade accounting business to run errands, leaving Lucky in the care of her colleagues. Surveillance video captured the moment Lucky left the building through the front door, which had been left propped open with a traffic cone, around 9 p.m. that night.

Seven minutes later, another security camera showed Lucky heading behind the building followed by a man, and then a car. The car is seen parking behind the office, located on Northwest 62nd Street and 29th Avenue.

The driver is seen getting out of the car, and then both men are shown attempting to coax Lucky out from underneath a trailer. "He's running around, cause he doesn't know them," said Stephens.

Eventually, surveillance footage showed the men picking up the canine and driving off. A man returned the dog back to Stephens, Wednesday morning. He said he thought Lucky was a stray.

"Going to get his stitches removed and get a chip planted in," said Stephens on Wednesday.

Stephens said the stitches are because Lucky was recently neutered.

    Here in So-Flo, we like to hang out half naked, especially in the summer, which is why eating healthy is so important to keep that bod in shape. I know eating healthy can be so boring. I mean, I wanna look good and feel good, but I don't wanna give up taste. I just found a healthy new joint that's both delicious and has me seriously considering becoming a vegan.
