Pure bred dogs, especially small ones, are stills hot ticket item. Obviously, stashing the dogs until a buyer was found was the fastest way to make money. The homeowners foiled the caper, but of course still look to whoever knew both where the dogs lived & that this place under construction would be unoccupied. I'm glad the dogs are now safely at home.
Simple. Maybe a worker at the home under construction noticed the dogs and took them, intending to sell. Perhaps the prospective "buyer" had second thoughts, or didn't come through in time. Glad the dogs were found and re-united. Stupid crooks. Small dogs may be expensive, but keeping them over a lifetime costs much more than the initial investment.
Or maybe a worker at the home under construction noticed the dogs and put them back in the wrong house...thinking he was helping. =)
Where's Ace Ventura when you need him?
Very weird. I'm just happy that the dogs are okay and home safely. And perhaps another good reason to install home cameras. A missing computer is one thing, but a family member is quite another!
