Jacqueline says she never leaves her Yorkie in her car. Though this time she felt that Leo, her beloved Yorkie was tired and cold after a long day of tours.
The couple left Leo in the car for an hour to let him sleep in his carrier, after returning Leo’s blanket was on the ground outside and the car window was destroyed.
Leo was reunited with his parents after someone contacted the authorities when they realized that the Yorkie they purchased was actually Leo, who was reported missing earlier.
UPDATE: Jacqueline got a call from SFPD today— someone in Oakland came forward and said they bought a dog that looks just like Leo.— Dion Lim (@DionLimTV) June 13, 2021

After the Sheriff’s office was alerted of the stolen Yorkie being found: the officers contacted Jacqueline and Refugio and sent them a photo.
It was an instant moment of relief, joy and amazement – Jacqueline at this moment realised she would get to see and hold Leo again!
Ok, NOW final update. This is the moment Jacqueline and Leo reunited. My faith in humanity is…somewhat restored! pic.twitter.com/D5mW95GqON— Dion Lim (@DionLimTV) June 14, 2021
