Dog Found In Stolen Pickup After Chase Reunited With Owner

SAN DIEGO, California – A dog found in the back of a stolen pickup after a police chase Thursday has been reunited with his owner.

After the chase ended with a dramatic takedown of the driver by a police dog, officers found a pit bull in the back seat of the cab. The dog’s owners showed up after the chase to claim the animal, but they didn’t bring the necessary paperwork to prove ownership.

The dog, a blue pit bull named Devo, was checked out by a veterinarian, who found that he was in good health. Friday morning, the dog was transferred to the county animal shelter in Bonita.

The dog’s owner showed up at about 11:30 a.m. with ownership papers and was reunited with the dog.

Dan DeSouza, with San Diego County Animal Services told FOX 5 that the dogs health was their first priority.
