Amazon’s Jeff Bezos helps return puppy stolen by company driver

An 11-month-old black miniature schnauzer has been returned to his rightful owner after Amazon’s CEO and founder Jeff Bezos became involved in the in the dog’s theft and safe rescue.

According to Richard Guttfield’s Facebook page, he realized his puppy Wilma was missing just moments after the delivery person dropped off a package of dog food that had been ordered online.

“My puppy went missing after an Amazon delivery and after an email to Jeff (Bezos) …we had someone who was amazing who tracked the driver and found our dog and brought her home,” Guttfield stated.

Guttfield said he emailed Bezos directly after he was so frustrated with the lack of service and urgency to find his precious little pet. He relentlessly contacted Amazon’s customer service for help, and there had been no investigation launched until he reached out for Bezos. One day later, Amazon checked the GPS log of the van which allegedly showed that before the next delivery the driver had returned home where the puppy was found. Bezos is known for reading customer emails and forwarding them onto the relevant departments – keeping his fingers on the pulse of his business.

The delivery driver worked for an unnamed Amazon logistics supplier, and the motive for the theft is under police investigation.

“This is inexcusable and does not reflect the high standards we have for our delivery partners,” a spokesperson for Amazon stated. “We take these matters seriously and this individual is not longer delivering Amazon packages for the independent delivery service provider.”

As for Wilma, the adorable pooch is back home and doing fine.
