My Neighbor, A Nice Elderly Lady, Had Her Little Dog Stolen on Sunday

We live in the West Village in NYC. She lives on the top floor. We have stairs, no elevator in the bldg. After the Pride parade on Sunday, groups of people stroll through the neighborhood. Many of them ring all the buzzers the apartment buildings in order to urinate in the lobby. When they rung the elderly lady's buzzer, she thought that the kids in the bldg were buzzing her. Her little dog ran out and down the stairs. The people that rang the bell saw the dog and stole her. At first, the lady was confused and didn't catch on about what happened. Then, she rushed down the stairs, but her dog was long gone. The police could not help her as they were managing the crowds.

The elderly lady is absolutely devastated. I know her and her dog, Trixie, a Yorkie, very well. Trixie would race me up each flight of stairs. She'd give me a lead and then rush past me to the top of the stairs. I use to call her the mayor of the building because she was so friendly to everyone. I'm very sad about this as well.

3. This Has Nothing to do with GBLT

ALL huge public events in NYC from St Patty's to the Puerto Rican day parade to New Year's Eve parade to even Yankees championship parades attract an element that think it's okay to act like assholes because they're in a large group.

5. I was joking.

yes, I've been to many of these events. Folks of all kind are capable of acting like a-holes.

4. Ask her if she wants it to be on the news.

Around the San Francisco Bay Area dog/pet stories spread like wildfire, I don't know if your area would respond like that, but if the "perps'', their friends, or acquaintances heard that an elderly lady was heartsick since her beloved Yorkie was stolen, someone might bring it back.
If she does want it to be on the news, call a TV or radio station or two.

6. Call the shelters and vets in the area

Someone may have brought her in. You can also post flyers and my friend found her missing cat by calling the radio station and they made an announcement. I really hope you find her. Your neighbor must be devastated and the poor little pup must be scared. Good luck!

8. Start watching for the dog on Kijiji

Druggies may try to sell it to make a few bucks.
