2 ladies on digicam stealing French bulldog from St John – WSVN 7News | St John Information, Climate, Sports activities
MIAMI (WSVN) – The owner of a valued French Bulldog is now sending a plea to the two women who stole their pet from their front yard in front of the camera in December.
“We’re doing everything we can to find them. We just want her back, ”said owner Debbie Cruz.
The gray French bulldog named Sheila is still missing.
“And we ask the community to help us find them because our family is very devastated to lose them,” said Cruz.
There are signs everywhere in the neighborhood. She’s been gone since December 29th.
Cruz said that day Sheila was in the front yard when a family member came home.
“Unfortunately he left the gate open for a moment,” said Cruz.
It was long enough for Sheila to slip on a hectic day on Southwest Second Terrace near West End Park, where a large crowd had gathered to give away a gift for a city.
The two women may have moved back from there when they discovered Sheila.
A man nearby also saw the puppy and asked if the dog had a collar.
One of them responded with a shake of her head. Then they go away with the dog.
“Someone just picked up the French bulldog and left with it instead of just asking around the neighborhood,” said neighbor Heriberto Rodriguez.
This neighbor saw it unfold, but did not notice that the women were taking his friend’s cherished pet.
“You should be aware that someone has just lost a family member because that really matters,” said Rodriguez.
The women could have been in a red Toyota Camry.
Cruz hopes they were just trying to help a pet they might have thought was lost and when they see that they will bring Sheila back to her mother.
“Sheila means everything to us,” said Cruz. “We hope they will bring her back and see that her family misses her.”
Sheila is microchipped. The people who have Sheila can take her back to the area or take her to a veterinary clinic or shelter where they can scan her and bring her back to their family.
