LOS ANGELES (CBS) — All four top show dogs stolen from a van parked outside a Bellflower Motel 6 have now been returned to their owners.
Kristina Rickard and David Peek got back their two Akitas, Didi and Trace, on Wednesday after being notified that their 2006 Chevrolet Express van was found in Compton with the two dogs inside.
Two Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Bunny and Peter, were returned later last evening.
The couple, who are from Redding, were in town for a show in Long Beach, where they planned to show the Akitas and their Japanese clients’ Corgis.
