Hooray! Daisymae, the dog who was snatched Sunday from a volunteer as she walked outside the East Bay SPCA, has been returned!
Y'all dog lovers remember this one: Two-year-old black and white pit bull mix Daisymae was with a volunteer just outside the East Bay SPCA's Oakland campus Sunday morning when a man started asking a volunteer questions about the pup.
He then "threw Daisymae into his car and sped off with her," according to the SPCA.
Adding a level of urgency to this case is a health condition Daisymae is managing: After arriving at the shelter as a stray in November, doctors discovered a mass that required removal. Her surgery to extract the growth was scheduled for this week.
"They gave gave us a call and we rushed over as fast as we could," the SPCA writes.
According to KRON4, "The man who stole the dog said he saw the news reports and started to feel guilty," and returned the hound unharmed.
According to the SPCA, "Daisymae is a happy, yet tired girl! We are so glad she is back in our care."
