A terrifying story with a happy ending!
Tricia O’Kelley, who stars on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, was terrified after her Yorkie puppy Walter disappeared from the fenced-in backyard behind her home.
Walter is deaf, and also has a condition that causes his trachea to collapse. As Tricia puts it - the dog needs "special care"!!!
The situation became worse when a blocked number called her cell phone.
"What is the dog worth to you?"
Tricia offered a healthy $500, but the man demanded $1,000!!!
Immediately after that - Tricia and her husband called the authorities who set up a meet with the dognappers.
The plan went awry when the dog stealers recognized the police, and called off the meeting.
Here's what Tricia said she was told by the dognappers, after the failed meeting:
“He said, ‘Don’t lie to me. I’m keeping your dog."
Tricia thought the worst after this conversation, but luck soon came rushing to her side!
Her pet pup was soon found behind her home after someone spotted two men dumping the dog off before fleeing into a car!
But Tricia only cares that she has her puppy back!!!
We're so happy for the reunited couple!!
