The Guardia Civil locates a missing Pomeranian puppy in Valencia in Cabo de Palos

The animal, valued at 1,200 euros, escaped and was found by a young couple, who took it to their home in the Valencian Community.

The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed the operation ‘Perrico’ established to locate a Lulu Pomeranian puppy, lost in Cabo de Palos last summer, which has culminated with the location of the animal, in Valencia, and the arrest of two people as alleged perpetrators of misappropriation.

The investigation began last summer, when the owners of a Lulu Pomeranian puppy, valued at 1,200 euros, reported the disappearance of the animal to the Guardia Civil. Apparently, due to its small size, it managed to sneak out of the house.

Investigations carried out by the Guardia Civil revealed that, that same afternoon, a couple of holidaymakers were asking several passers-by if anyone knew the owners of the dog and, although at first they showed some interest in locating them, they finally left with the animal.

With this scarce information and, despite the fact that in August hundreds of holidaymakers visit the Murcian coast, the Guardia Civil persevered with the investigation, focusing their enquiries on hotel establishments in the area that allowed pets to stay.

After numerous calls and visits, the investigators found the receptionist of a hotel who remembered a young couple who, initially registered without a pet, asked for a dog with similar characteristics to stay in their room, coinciding with the dates on which the puppy disappeared.

Recently, the operation ‘Perrico’ has culminated when the Guardia Civil has located the animal in the home where the couple lives, in Valencia, so they have been arrested as alleged perpetrators of the crime of misappropriation.

Its legitimate owners did not hesitate to travel to the Valencian Community to recover their pet.

The proceedings have been placed at the disposal of the Court of Instruction number 3 of Cartagena.
