Stolen Brevard Dog Returns Home To Owners Thanks To Good Samaritan

dog was stolen from a Malabar residence
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I have a very special story to share that truly defines the theory that “it takes a community to protect a community!”
In late May, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office responded to a Malabar residence, in reference to a stolen dog. The victims stated that they were away on vacation when their son noticed “Roxy”, their six year old Pomeranian was missing from their residence.
After reviewing the home’s surveillance footage, Roxy was seen running around the front yard after she was able to get out of the house through an unsecured doggie door.
A short time later, an unknown male, possibly in his late teens or early twenties was observed on the video wearing dark colored pants and an orange hooded shirt, while walking up the driveway of the victim’s home. The male was then observed running away, with the shirt in his arms as if he were carrying something.
Approximately one week later, the victim was contacted by a Good Samaritan who advised that she saw a post about Roxy’s theft and believed she had located her in the Vero Beach area.
When Roxy was located her, fur was badly matted, so the Good Samaritan took time to trim Roxy’s fur and give her a bath so that she would be ready to be reacquainted with her owners. Arrangements were then made to meet and return Roxy to a very thankful family!!
It is truly sad that there are those in society that victimize and steal, yet on the other hand it is wonderful that there are good people in this world such as the Good Samaritan in this case, who acted with care and compassion in returning Roxy to her loving family!!
Please join me in thanking the Good Samaritan for helping return Roxy to her owners and for putting an exclamation point on the concept that “it takes a community to protect a community!!”
