Pet Owners Reunited With Dog Stolen During Anniversary Trip to SF
Leo, a 10-year-old Yorkie, is now back in the care of his owners after being stolen from a car during a trip to San Francisco last week. Safe and sound: Leo and his owners, Jacqueline Zavala Lee and Refugio Zavala, were reunited on Sunday after someone informed the SFPD that the dog they bought in Oakland, Calif., matched the description of the missing canine, according to KRON4. UPDATE: Jacqueline got a call from SFPD today— someone in Oakland came forward and said they bought a dog that looks just like Leo.news.yahoo.com
Yorkie's death at airport facility fuels legal fight
The dog died in September at a private facility at New York’s Kennedy Airport used to hold animals from overseas that are denied entry to the U.S. by federal officials. The news was heartbreaking for a woman who says she was the owner-in-waiting for the female Yorkie. “It’s been really, really rough for me to deal with her death,” Rachel Hobbs, of Dayton, Ohio, said in a recent interview. A second Yorkie named Wonderful Baby Blue Diamond was under the care of a veterinary clinic suffering from an intestinal illness, according to court papers filed this week. “The question of who is responsible for any of these charges rests upon whether the seizure was reasonable and constitutional,” the plaintiffs say in court papers.
