There are few details surrounding the return of a German shepherd who was stolen from a veteran’s yard in East Los Angeles, California, on October 31. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the German shepherd pup was found “safe” on November 5.
The sheriff’s department stated, “The owner, who is an East Los Angeles resident, was reunited with “PJ.” PJ is in good condition and doing well. No arrests have been made at this time. East Los Angeles Station detectives are investigating the incident.”
The young dog, who belongs to Francisco Torres and his wife Angela, was stolen out of her fenced yard – video surveillance captured images of a man unlatching the gate and then walking away with the shepherd. Shortly after the dog disappeared, the local authorities indicated that the situation was not necessarily a crime because the man’s “intent” could not be proven.
It is unclear how or where the shepherd was found – only that she is safely back at home.
