luckyIt was a happy ending on Thursday when a stolen Chihuahua named Lucky was reunited with her family.

On April 19th burglars broke into the home of Ana Wells while her and her family were at work. Among the things taken from her home was her dog Lucky. She had adopted Lucky 10 years ago from a shelter. “I’m devastated,” said Ana Wells when the burglary happened.

Then police got a call from the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, Lucky was at their shelter. It’s not clear how Lucky ended up there but for Ana Wells it is just a relief to have her back. “Lucky appears to be in good spirits and happy to be with familiar faces,” said police spokesman Michael Pooley. “Although the victims lost several items of property from this burglary they are excited to get Lucky back.”
