Heartwarming Reunion: Beloved Pet Rediscovered and Joyfully Reunited with Devoted Owners

A golden retriever from San Luis Obispo County in California was reunited with her family after a series of unexpected events involving dognapping, deputies and community support. Steven Allen had never imagined that his beloved dog, Blossom, would go missing, let alone be stolen, while he was out of town with his family. On Friday night, Blossom escaped from the house when Allen’s father-in-law came to check on her, and the absence of a collar prompted a Facebook post and a call to the county Animal Services. Deputies found Blossom and took her to the shelter, but when Allen contacted them, she was nowhere to be found.

According to Norris, Blossom was stolen from the kennel by an unknown individual after Animal Services arrived in the morning. The security camera footage confirmed that the outdoor kennel where Blossom was kept had been cut open and she was taken. Sheriff’s deputies conducted a search of the area and spoke to people nearby, but couldn’t locate Blossom initially. However, they received information from someone who called the Sheriff’s Office that they had seen Blossom near the shelter. The deputies were able to find Blossom and arrested two people, Lyons and Copeland, on suspicion of stealing her. They have been charged with burglary, vandalism, and grand theft and are currently incarcerated in San Luis Obispo County Jail with bail set at $20,000 for each person. Blossom was the only dog in the overnight kennels at the time of the theft, and it is unclear why she was taken.

Steven Allen, the owner of Blossom, expressed his gratitude to the community and the Sheriff’s Office for their effort in rescuing his missing dog. Blossom was allegedly stolen from SLO County Animal Services after she went missing from her house. Fortunately, the deputies of the Sheriff’s Office took care of Blossom before she was reunited with her family on Sunday afternoon. During her stay, Blossom was friendly and had the chance to meet the dispatchers. The family felt lucky to have Blossom back and thanked the community and the Sheriff’s Office for their help. Allen mentioned that they were sad when Blossom went missing, but her return was amazing, and Blossom had quite an adventure.
