Stolen Dog Found After Video of Theft Hits Internet

“It’s hard to actually see it with your own eyes. To see that he clearly didn’t even want to go, and the fact that she forced it upon him and then just took him,” said Gureghian.

A Maltese called Mickey was stolen right out of his yard this past Saturday.  Luckily, his family takes surveillance video of their yard, and after a video of him being stolen hit the internet, Mickey was finally found.  He has since been reunited with his family.

It was only a mere few hours after the video hit internet news and social media outlets before Mickey was located.  The video is a bit hard to watch, and we agree with Mickey’s human mom Lucy Gureghian. He clearly did not want to go with the person trying to take him.

“It’s hard to actually see it with your own eyes.  To see that he clearly didn’t even want to go, and the fact that she forced it upon him and then just took him,” said Gureghian.

When the video was released on Sunday, it came with a news interview with Gureghian begging for her dog back.  It was truly heartbreaking.

“Please just bring him back, that’s all we ask for,” Gureghian said.  “We won’t press any charges. We just want our dog back.  He’s part of our family and we miss him very much.”

Just a few hours after everything aired on Sunday, the family decided to go out yet again to locate Mickey.  This time, there was a sign that read, “Dog Found!” complete with picture of Mickey.  They immediately began knocking on doors asking if someone there had put the poster up.  After a few tries, they found him.

The person that had Mickey was not the person in the video.  Nor was anyone else in the immediate area for that matter.  The person that took him is still out there, but at least Mickey is back where he belongs.  He was very upset over the whole thing, but at the moment they were reunited, Mickey began to cry with joy to see him mom again.

The neighbor that had Mickey claimed that someone they had never seen before, just left Mickey there with them.  They claimed not to know who this person was, just that they dropped off the dog there.  Gureghian was suspicious of the person’s story, but was just so happy Mickey was OK, that she kept her word and didn’t press charges.

  1. Never leave your dog alone or out of your sight…more and more are being stolen right under their people’s noses…not in your yard or car, even in a dog park with a fence around it. Not in today’s world.

  2. So glad his family had the surveillance installed. Pretty soon we’re ALL going to be using the same in our homes and yards. AND we probably should purchase our own surveillance cameras for our automobiles. Seriously, with everything that is going on today???

  4. WTF is wrong with this society that we are living in ?? I read all the time about people having their dogs stolen..All types of Dogs..My God, is nothing sacred anymore ??? I keep my dogs protected at all times, inside large fences, and inside my home. I realize that not everybody can do that, but I will protect my dogs with my life..

  5. If you wouldn’t let a $100 bill out of your sight…then why would you let something as precious as a fur baby out of your sight????

  6. For all of you saying don’t leave your dog outside alone, do you seriously always stand there like a hawk watching your dogs? They SHOULD be safe inside their own yards. Stop blaming the owners. We need to figure out a way to stop the thefts.

  7. What happened to micro-chipping your pets? The video was a fantastic tool to locate this cute pup! But micro-chips also are super helpful as well. Protect your pets!!

  8. Aw he is adorable so happy that he is back home wish people would think before stealing anything even more so dogs because they really are a family member also they have feeling and love their home just like a child does don’t take what is not yours to take xx
