Los Angeles, CA – A senior dog who was stolen from his owner during a violent 7-11 attack just before 1 a.m. on Sept. 26 in North Hollywood has been found and reunited with his owner. The 11-year-old dog was wrestled away from his owner inside the convenience store by two people; a man and a woman.
The police reached out to the public for assistance, releasing a video and a description of the two suspects caught on camera.
As reported by ABC 7 News, the dog was found on Thursday at a sober living home in Orange County. The people running the home recognized the dog and confronted the people who were with him; the suspects fled, leaving the dog behind.
The operators contacted the local authorities, who then contacted the Los Angeles Police Department. The dog, Drake, was reunited with his owner and he did not appear to be harmed or in distress from the frightening ordeal.
The motive for the attack and theft is unknown and the identity of the people at the sober living home will remain a mystery due to federal privacy laws.
