NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A woman was reunited Saturday with her puppy after it was stolen from a fenced-in yard in North Nashville.
Enzo, a 9-week-old, white Golden Retriever, returned home to Taylor Olcott after someone reportedly contacted her saying they found her dog.
Olcott was able to pick up Enzo, who was in good condition and very excited to see her.
The Golden Retriever was stolen Thursday afternoon from a home on 15th Avenue North.
Although Olcott had only had the pup for a couple of weeks, he had already stolen her heart.
“He is just the most angelic puppy ever. He was just perfect, truly perfect,” she said.
It’s not clear what happened to Enzo while he was gone, but there is growing concern about “pet flipping,” according to the president of Adopt a Golden Nashville.
She said the animals are often moved to different cities and sold on Craigslist.
