A Detroit family is thanking the community after their dog that was stolen was returned back home on Saturday.
The Olvera family’s dog Luna was captured on camera being taken by an unknown man on Tuesday afternoon from their home near Michigan and Livernois Avenues.
“It just shows what kind of person he was,” dog owner Angelica Olvera said. “He wasn’t shy. He wasn’t embarrassed, or nothing. He was going from door to door, gate to gate, to see if my other dog was out.”
Olvera said the American Bully dog was just seven months old and belonged to her daughter Esmeralda.
“I’m not taking it easy,” Esmeralda said. “I just wish and hope that she is ok for now. And I just wish she would come back.”
And on Saturday it did. The person who took the dog said it was a misunderstanding.
“He called me and said he has my dog,” Olvera said. “He said it was a confusion. That it was a dog they took from him that looked exactly like her.”
Either way the family is just very happy their Luna is back home.
“Thank you for bringing her back. We really missed the dog,” Esmeralda Olvera said.
