MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. A singer’s teacup puppy returned home after a woman stole him from a veterinarian’s office in Miami-Dade County on Tuesday.
Lenier Mesa, a Cuban singer who lives in Miami, used social media to say in Spanish that the puppy was his and that he disappeared after a relative took him to the vet to get vaccinated.
Mesa later shared a picture of the woman who allegedly stole the Pomeranian and returned it to the Best Care Animal Clinic in the University Park neighborhood of Miami-Dade.
A surveillance video from the vet’s practice shows a woman grabbing the dog when no one was watching, hiding it under her T-shirt and being taken out of the clinic in 9804 SW 8th St.
A social media user promoting their dog breeder business posted the surveillance video Only in Dade, which publishes user-submitted content.
Local 10 News has a pending file inspection request on the alleged suspect’s case.
