Yorkshire Terrier stolen from California woman returned

Do you remember the article we wrote about Deuce, the Yorkshire Terrier who was snatched from his 80-year old owner a few weeks ago? Well we heard today that Deuce is alive and well and has been returned safely to a very grateful Helen Bignone.

A woman bought Deuce for $20 after being approached on the street, but realized what had happened after seeing a news report. After animal control officers scanned Deuce's microchip and confirmed his identity, he was able to go back home.

The kind family who returned Deuce were offered a free dog from a local animal shelter.

I love a happy ending!
