Stolen Dog Gets Reunited With Owner After 4 Years

Published

on

On Tuesday, May 30th Denise Olivas Velasquez shared a photo with Victor Valley Pets of a dog she found in Hesperia.

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) A dog that was stolen four years ago from San Diego was reunited with its owner after being found in Hesperia.

Denise Velasquez and her friends returned from a trip to the river this past weekend when she noticed a dog waiting on her front porch.

“As we pulled up to the house I saw the dog and it was just shaking so we gave it some water, then it jumped in my friend’s car and it didn’t want to get out,” said Velasquez.

“I was going to take him to a dog pound but decided to ask for advice on the Victor Valley Pets group on Facebook,” she said.

Velasquez was advised by group members to take the dog to a veterinarian to have it checked for a chip.

“We took him to the vet and they found a chip, so we contacted the owner and she was completely shocked. She said her dog was stolen from her four years ago out of San Diego,” Velasquez said.

“During the phone conversation she told us the dogs name was Blue, and as I repeated the name his ears just perked up,” she said.

The owner was willing to drive 115 miles from San Diego to Hesperia that same night, but Velasquez agreed to meet halfway the next morning in Riverside.

“We met up, and I decided to record the reunion because everyone in the pet group wanted to see it. Blue recognized his owner and his other fur friend right away,” she said.

The San Diego woman, who wishes to keep her name private, told Victor Valley News she is beyond happy to have Blue back.

“I rescued him from a Pomeranian Rescue after he was abandoned in a foreclosed home at 8-months-old,” the owner said, “Blue and our other dog were inseparable before he was stolen.”

The woman said the both dogs cuddled all the way back to San Diego.

“When I got back home, I called my son and told him to come to the house. As he pulled into the driveway and saw me holding Blue he started to tear up,” said Blue’s owner.

The owner searched everywhere for Blue for about a year after he was stolen and slowly lost hope.

“I didn’t think I would ever see him again,” she said.

“The one thing I recommend to people is that they get their pets chipped and have it scanned every year to make sure the chip is still working. Also, if you find a dog take it the vet to see if it is chipped,” the San Diego woman said.
