Who doesn’t love a happy ending? Especially when it concerns the sad and less than conventional theft that happened last week

A puppy that was stolen after its owner tried selling it has been found, according to a recent Toronto Star article. 

The article reports that a family who recognized the puppy from its media coverage saw it wandering around in the Whitby area and contacted the police. 

The nine-week-old puppy was retrieved in healthy condition and has been returned to its owner. 

Unfortunately, the three thieves who pepper-sprayed the dog’s owner before stealing it are still on the run. 

According to the Star, the suspects are described as a trio of East Indians in their late teens to early twenties. 

The first suspect is a male with a skinny build, dark complexion and a beard. He was seen wearing thick-framed glasses and dark clothing. The second suspect, also male, is about 5 feet 10 and has short hair. He was wearing earrings about a quarter-inch wide on both ears. The third suspect is female with a thin build and long black hair, and police suspect her name might be Karen. 

If you have any information that can help the investigation, call police at 1-800-222-8477.
