According to Monday's ABC News 10, the beagle puppy who was stolen from a vehicle which was parked at a Costco in Roseville, Calif., has been returned to his owner.
The Auburn Area Animal Rescue Foundation made a statement on Facebook about the puppy's return on May 17:
Charlie, the Beagle puppy from Costco in Roseville, is back with his owner. The puppy was surrendered to AAARF this morning and reunited with his owner this afternoon. The puppy is in excellent condition and his owner has assured AAARF that he will never be left in a hot car again.
The 10-week-old puppy had been left inside of the vehicle, with the windows cracked, on a day when the thermometer was pushing the century mark. The owner, David Gulzadah, parked the car in the shade and claimed to have been inside of the Costco for 15 to 20 minutes.
The person(s) who took the pup left behind a note and the Charlie's collar. A couple turned Charlie over to the shelter on Saturday - it is unclear if they were responsible for removing the pup from the car last Thursday or not.
