Abby Sevcik and her partner Rick Oleka were walking their Australian Shepherd puppy Pablo when four hooded men suddenly walked behind them. Before the couple realized they were being followed, one of the men pressed a gun on Rick’s back. The armed suspect then told them to give up their dog.
After handing Pablo over, the other men took their phones and wallets. The group then went to their escape vehicle and drove away. Although the two were glad that they were not hurt, they were badly shaken and feared they would never see their 11-week-old pup again.
Rick and Abby went to the DC Police Department right away to report the matter. After hearing them out, the authorities had a feeling that what happened to them was similar to an earlier incident where a French Bulldog was taken from its owner near the same area.
The cops started their investigation, and they concluded that a gang of four men had been doing a crime spree in their community. Thanks to witnesses and several pieces of evidence, they found the house where the suspects were hiding. In a precise and coordinated operation, they raided the home and arrested the suspects.
They found Pablo safe inside. But the French Bulldog named Bruno was nowhere to be found.
Looking for Bruno
After the successful raid, the DC officers took Pablo to their precinct and made a video call to Rick and Abby. The couple was delighted to see their beloved pet in the arms of the cops who rescued him. They were also relieved that the young pup was unharmed and acted as if nothing terrible had happened.
As for Bruno, the officers are still conducting an investigation. The cops and the dog’s owners are hoping that they can find the dog as soon as possible and get him home safely.
