Stranger Buys Stolen Puppy From Craigslist, Returns It to Owner

Ziggy was bought and returned to his owner by a stranger.

— -- A stolen puppy found his way home thanks to a kind stranger and social media.

Ziggy was stolen from a crate in his front yard in Fresno, Calif., on Friday, owner Kris Villasenor told ABC News today. A stranger’s act of kindness reunited the white Maltese with his family the next day.

“I was browsing Facebook the other day and my aunt shared a post about a lost dog,” Jeremiah Lee told ABC News. “I read it and realized that the dog was stolen in my neighborhood.”

Lee decided to keep an eye out for the dog and on Villasenor's post on Fresno’s lost and found pets Facebook page.

“Sure enough, one of the other commenters found him on Craigslist and shared the link,” Lee said. “I texted the number thinking that there was no way that they would respond and just told them that they had broken a little girl’s heart and to do the right thing.”
