A couple in Long Beach, California never expected to come face to face with a burglar in their home. The burglar stole one of the only things that mattered – their beloved dog, Archie.
Kenny Gonzales and Miranda Perez are devastated after a man entered their home at 10am on Sunday and stole their 1-year-old French Bulldog. The burglar also stole some construction tools before escaping. Gonzales came face to face with the burglar after exiting his bathroom and seeing the man in his living room.
He dashed to his room to grab a weapon. When he returned the burglar had escaped. The couple immediately contacted the police. Luckily, a neighbor’s security camera captured the vehicle and the burglar.
The couple made a plea to the burglar to safely return their dog. Bruno, Archie’s 9-year-old brother, is lost without him. Gonzalez tells ABC 7, “take him to the dog pound. Just turn him in.” The couple is heartbroken and begs for his return. They do not care about the stolen tools. Miranda Perez pleas, “Give me my son back and how dare you.”
