I have waited for baited breath for this. I had not heard the other two were returned (Layla and King) but apparently they had been. Every time I drove around Westchester, I had my eyes peeled for these dogs.
This following note is from connections on facebook. I learned about it today while I was at Yonkers Animal Shelter doing my Sunday-thing, since our second in charge, Marco, was the guy who helped to pick Brooklyn up from the abandoned house he was left in. He is severely emaciated. Yes, some sub-human piece of crap, after stealing the dog, had the nerve to stash him in a place where he hoped no one would find him, to hide his crime. No food or water.
THE LAST OF THE STOLEN DOGS FROM MOUNT VERNON HAS BEEN FOUND! A NOTE FROM THE SHELTER MGR - JUST IN!!!
We can officially say Brooklyn is back - thanks to all of you! We got a tip today about a dog left in a vacant house on Chestnut Street. It sounded like there was a good chance it was him so Jeannie contacted the Yonkers shelter and police and we met them at the house. It was totally boarded up (!) and you could hear the dog scratching on the wall upstairs. The police and shelter guy went in through a back door and brought him back down. Boy was he happy to be out! The bad news is he is SOOO skinny and according to neighbors had been locked in there for weeks. This dog would have died a horrible slow death if it were not for everyone coming together and never giving up. A neighbor saw a poster on Chestnut that probably just went up yesterday so it was totally you guys that did it.
And yes the person who called this in is getting a huge reward. They deserve every penny (and more).
NOT MISSING ANYMORE!!!Share
